  1. We got lots of planes around here that are difficult to see in the dark, lights yes, fuselage no.
  2. Having lived in the north of Scotland and Orkney, you can forget astronomy and any chance of aurora for the next month, the sky does not get dark enough. You will have twilight at best and it will be the end of August before you start getting any darkness for any amount of time. The brightest planets, the Moon and Sun would be your only chance.
  3. Welcome from another one in North Norfolk.
  4. The original post is from 2007, so I have closed it, as there is no point in further posts.
  5. Naz

    Norwich newb

    Welcome Ray from a clouded in Sheringham, not seen a clear sky for ages now.
  6. I do miss the Merry Dancers Stewart, so I have to rely on your photos. These look spectacular with the red shooting up into the sky.
  7. Fingers crossed that they don't suffer to badly, still smoke and ash will take some clearing from the optics.
  8. Heads up, BBC4 tonight 13th January from 7pm, three editions of Sky at Night, a look back at his life at 8.30pm and Sir Patrick talks to Mark Lawson at 9pm.
  9. Not cheap, but could be useful, pity I have just bought a new second hand D300
  10. Will have to return to the North just to get a fix, that's the effect your shots have Stewart. Excellent photo.
  11. The Classifieds are still there, you need 50 post to view and 250 to place an advert.

  13. Nikkor 50mm f1.8 AF, early model with aperture setting ring in perfect condition for 12€ (about £9) at a vide grenier (car boot) in France, worked a treat on my D200 . Got £60 for it when I raised funds to get the Sigma 70-200 f2.8.
  14. I agree, nothing will totally deter the little devils, but, and it's a big but, forestery workers in the north of Scotland use http://avonshop.co.u... soft&pagenum=2 It certainly appeared to work and make it bareable, with very much reduced bites when I went fishing at night for sea trout in the Cairngorms.
  15. and to give the general public something they can relate too
  16. Not exactly new news, it has been known about for sometime now. Should provide some good images
  17. At last we have got our spare bed back Looks good John, enjoy
  18. Yes, set the dial to manual and all should work.
  19. Sorry Luke, you are still giving your money to Ryanair http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/df47055e-95de-11e1-a163-00144feab49a.html#axzz1tyXX4WRC Ryanair are the major shareholders:eek:
  20. What is the weight of the scope? RyanAir are strict on weights, also, do not consider taking it as hold baggage, unless you want it damaged. If they handle baggage at all their destinations the way they do at Stansted, you can be sure that it may not survive the flight.
  21. I have Elements 8 running on Win 7 64 bit machine, no problems at all.
  22. My first zoom lens, away back when was a Soligor 70 ~ 230 mm, it was heavy!! A bit of history on Soligor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  23. Stewart, please stop posting these as you are reminding me off what I am missing!! OK I am just envious, another cracking set with wonderful colours.
