  1. You certainly wouldn't want to see it at ground level belting up the M6 at 7-8 kilometres per second. It would probably have a white Transit van right on its butt

    Would be a good way to clear the traffic out of your way :grin::eek:

    I think the EQ6 is capable of tracking the ISS in real time, there is software around that does some of the work for you.

  2. HI just posted some photos of Venus and Mars on the last post.

    This Photo of Venus is on the same night it has turned out blue in this shot, but I can't bring out any other stars in the picture any ideas.


    Any suggestions why there are no other stars showing up ? Or could this be Neptune, I have forgotten now which direction I was looking.

  4. Hi Qualia thanks for your reply I do wear glasses so yes what you say about eye relief would be true, usually find I take my glasses off to view through the scope.

    Yes Peter it is the one and thanks for pointing the fact about it being a 2 inch think my scope has the 1.25 inch size eye pieces so think thats that idea out the window or can you get adapters for this. My scope is a Jessops one I got bought for christmas. Was a christmas what do you want for christmas moment lol. :smiley:
