  5. Hi I have only just started my obey build so far I have done the groundwork and laid a slabbase for my log cabin that I'm waiting on a Delivery Date for ...... So while I wait I thought I would start looking for a good clock .. Here is what I'm after if one even exists. I've searched google high n low Large Red digital readout that includes seconds would be a bonus if it could sync with the local atomic clock (nearest to me is Rugby) would be nice if I could find one that also displayed local sidereal time too ... Any ideas ?
  6. Just a quick heads up guys if anybody does spot this gear i advice not to shout it out on the forum or stuff but to PM an admin or Peter himself if the theifs are watching these forums and see the post they could pull the ad before they can be traced !!

  14. Hi everyone ive been a long time reader of this forum and have gathered some brilliant advice .. anyway a few weeks ago i purchased my first proper scope a celestron nexstar 8se due to weather ive only managed to use it a couple of times for a short while before the clouds returned or dew set in (dew strips,dew sheild and controller ordered ) so far i managed to view M42 what an amazing sight and i found the crab nebula it was very faint no detail but you could tell it was there im hoping the Oiii filter ive ordered will help ..hence my obsession with DSO,s hope to bag many more in time anyway just wanted to introduce myself and say hello
