  1. Nice work Steve. What kind of Altitude was Jove at at this early hour of the morning?
  2. Thanks all for your help. I think when I commence build next year (fingers crossed) when its drier weather I will go down the turnbuckle route.
  3. Thanks guys. Some good suggestions. Anyone else have any good suggestions?
  4. Hi All, Am looking for recommendations for latches/bolts for securing fold off roof of observatory when in it’s closed position. Would be interested to see pictures/links of what has worked well to others. TIA
  5. Fox and Vivian is silk there James in terms of roll off roof over the existing building I think it might make construction a little difficult but is certainly something I can ponder.
  6. Hi All, I’m thinking of converting my roll off shed design to a more permanent, yet still small obsy. Currently roll off shed as as below which is ok but would like to convert it to a small permanent shed with gold down walls and preferably a style of roof that is either fold down to the side or roll back garage door style but where the door, or roof goes down behind the back wall of the structure. I don’t have the space for a roll off roof behind the shed as I have an outbuilding directly behind which can be seen in the pictures. Any help on how to engineer such a roof would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance Felix
  7. Good amount of detail there Steve nice one
  8. Mick, it’s been a while since I’ve logged on. You’re work is absolutely stunning. Such awesome skill and craftsmanship. I bet that runs beautifully.
  9. That’s very nice Pete. Probably the best I’ve seen this season. I haven’t had a chance with any planets presently purely Cos of location of neighboring houses and their choice of massively tall conifers. I don’t hunk I’ll do get a decent chance of an image until 2022. I am enjoying visual on the smaller DSO’s on my new C9.25 though
  10. very good effort considering the low altitude and terrible seeing conditions we have been experiencing.
  11. Hi Guys, Am looking for a TV 2x Powermate in good condition. The 2 inch barrel version please. Let me know if you have one up for grabs. Thanks Felix
  12. Drop me a message for details if interested. Pics are too large to go on here. Happy to email some
