  1. SGL 2018 - Save the Dates!

    Ooooh dates saved cant wait!!!
  2. Can't have my pitch nabbed by anyone lol, it'll be nice to see you both again & catch up, the same goes for any other of the regulars who are going & meeting some new faces too.
  3. Oooooh normal pitch for me Tony from the 11th March to the 17th please!!!!
  4. Time to say goodbye :(

    Great stuff Jim it's sounding like you've pretty much got away with it with only some small losses in the end, still an annoyance though I'd imagine. Just don't go overdoing it with that chest infection though.
  5. Time to say goodbye :(

    Here ya go mate, bet you're feeling better already!! ;-)
  6. Show us your Solar Observing Equipment

    A good Quark is a superb bit of kit & they are superb to image with from what I've seen, but I know someone who's on their 3rd one in under 2 years who lives not to far from me so they sound like a bit of a lottery to me. Just my tuppenceworth.
  7. Time to say goodbye :(

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you :-)
  8. Time to say goodbye :(

    Nice one mate I think you'll be up & running again sooner than you think :-)
  9. Time to say goodbye :(

    I've only just found this thread but it's not sounding like there's been to much damage or loss then Jim? I'm glad it held up after the recent winds we've had too. Hopefully our little chat when I popped over to visit helped too? Stick at it & if you ever want to chat you know where I am :-)
  10. Merry Christmas

    I hope you aint thinking of skinny dipping Jim?
  11. Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas Tony & happy new year, see you at a dark sky soon ;-)
  12. Canon 1100D Batteries

    I still use both my original 1000D batteries one I've had for 5 years the others age is anyone's guess but they'll still plod along taking pictures for 4 hours even on a cold night whereas the Insten you mentioned have gone off after a couple of years. I've done timelapse photos & all sorts using them too so they've been used regulary. Just a pity they don't fit the 1100D...
  13. Canon 1100D Batteries

    This is true but in my experience they last 5 times longer too lol
  14. Canon 1100D Batteries

    I would prefer original Canon Batteries if possible as the copies I have don't last very long at all, I guess they're ok when new but when they age a bit they aren't very good at all.
  15. Canon 1100D Batteries

    I've already got a 12v power supply for it although I'd like to use it remotely on just a tripod & it can also be used for daylight photography too. Dave this is the type of batteries the camera came with but don't last 5 minutes out in the cold but I know genuine ones can last about 4 hours.
