  1. Right. So WH ... are you a dwarf then? That'd make a difference on the amount of daylight you get...
  2. Yes. Ignore the third set of numbers (seconds). Can't remember but pretty sure you get the option to put W or E in. If not then W is a negative when you get the +/- bit (you will get either the +/- or the W/E choice) Arthur
  3. Umm, 15:47:0W puts you somewhere in the Atlantic I reckon... try 0:15:47W Arthur
  4. The difference will be in the horizon and what time things rise and set. Personally, I'd go for CdC rather than Stellarium though - I don;t like the way Stellarium takes over the entire screen http://www.stargazing.net/astropc/ Arthur
  5. To tell the truth people, your best bet for small numbers of odd bolts is this guy: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Tek-Hardware_UNC-Nuts-Bolts_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ1909805QQftidZ2QQtZkm An email to him will usually get what you need and you don't have to buy hundreds at a time. Arthur
  6. The offer was about 2 weeks ago so they won;t be on the websites - you will just have to go to a store on the offchance... Arthur
  7. Yup - and there's still about 6 pairs at the Mile Cross Lidl in Norwich. I paid £15 for mine last time they had them in... Arthur

  9. Yup - go for the silicone. If you use a glue gun (good idea though it may seem) then be prepared for the mirror to part company with the spider on cold nights. Arthur
  10. Not at all Kain. 1/4 inch Whitworth (or UNC) with 20 tpi (teeth per inch) Arthur
  11. Yup - best advice is get the finder aligned and practise during the day moving the scope around. Arthur
  12. OK you lot! I strongly suspect that you are trying to maintain the black point of your "reworks" and so losing some of the finer bits of the image. Don't be afraid to have a background that is not perfectly black - in life it never is and a too dark black will make the image seem contrived imo. How's this? Arthur
  13. Me too. when the car got mashed the insurance company sent me to a certai n bodushop for repairs. Now - from experience I knew they weren't so good and told the broker this. "Sorry, that's the company we deal with..." was all they said. Anyway, went to let them have a look at t he damage and on the wall were several posters saying things like "We specialise in (insert car make here) repairs - you do not have to use the company your insurance company dictates...". Hmm, thinks I. Call to brokers... "Sorry, you have to use them" Call to insurance company - "That's correct Mr Edwards, you may use any registered bodyshop you care to nominate as long as they are members of the (can't remember the "guild") and are happy to take on the work" So, I used my preferred bodyshop in the end. TBH, I'm not sure Jessops would be my preferred dealer in this case either. Arthur
