    moon 3-7-14

    I agree, I really like daytime moon pictures. Well done OP
  5. Nice pic. Looks very natural.
  6. I own a pair of Pentax 8x40 PCF WP II which I'm very happy with now (the first pair were misaligned). Theyre about the maximum I'd take on a walking holiday so they suit my other activities.
  7. Sounds like a good lesson which you're unlikely to repeat
  8. Hello Chris. You've definitely come to the right place. Congratulations on your new scope and welcome to SGL.

    Hi everyone!

    Hello. Welcome to SGL. As others have said, the 6" dob is a good choice for starting astronomy. Let us know how you get on.
  12. I use a black towel, but I think that hoodie is a great idea <lol>
  13. Nice setting. Hope you enjoy your break.
  14. I've noticed on the BBC weather website that they change the forecast regularly as the time gets closer and often still get it wrong when its only a few hours away. I'm not sure why we put so many resources/faith into this "science".
  15. Nice picture. Thanks for sharing.
  16. Nice. Congratulations. <reaches for the raincoat>
