  1. My nemesis I've never seen this from home in any of my scopes. Great picture.
  2. 1.25" Altair Mirror diagonal 99% dielectric I have a 2" one now for my 5" Meade Refractor so this will be lying around. Couple of marks around the barrel has no bearing on the diagonal itself just where its been fastened in the focuser. £30 including postage.
  3. I've got to the 30th that's when I have said I will ring back if that is OK for you.
  4. I've just got some revelation 10 x 42 waterproof binoculars they were on offer not sure how good they are going to be. Being roof prism not sure how they will be for astronomy.
  5. Can people confirm they will be coming in the next couple of days please I have to ring the site telling them how many are coming and whether its viable for them. I am hoping for between 8 and 12 but the more the merrier should have a great time weather permitting. The conversation will be great and people can learn so much especially new astronomers.
  6. Got my AN few days ago I was reading through it came across the article "making light work" in the article it says wider FOV is best for light polluted skies I just cannot get my head around this what do people think, here is the piece.
  7. Unfortunately Neil I've had no luck one clear night but full of dew moon had rings around it so I never bothered waiting patiently for a clear good seeing night. I've got about four lists ready to go but as the months go on the constellations move south and I cannot view to the south. everytime I get a forecast of a clear night I'm looking what's up then making a list up appropriate for that.

  8. I've had no days in a row so Reading this made my day a bit jealous but glad that someone was out enjoying this frustrating hobby.
  9. I've just got a pair of 10x 42s hoping they will get me some great results like you had.
  10. Great to see someone can get to dark skies and come up with a cracking report felt like I was there looking through the eyepiece with you. Brilliant just brilliant.
  11. Clouded out here as per was clear up until 8pm then cloud. Some targets there not seen before I will have to write them down. Great sketches as usual Nick.
  12. Bump someone must know i can buy one off here if it fits.
  13. I have just asked on here see if I get a definitive answer thanks, If it does I will have it off you.
  14. Would a HEQ5 puck fit a EQ5 mount I like the idea of the two substantial bolts better than the one with a thin one at an angle like the EQ5 has got thanks.
