    It's arrived

    Have you not bought the Zarkov cloud gun from FLO to go with it yet ,looks like the perfect solution for you If not preorder the Hubble telescope it looks like they can get for you within a week according to their website and this will also be a way to avoid the clouds. Welcome by the way
  4. I bought a binoviewer today from a local charity shop : says made by Astro Engineering , came in a box with pair of rubber eye cups and a single Meade super plossl 26mm eyepiece . Grand cost of £15 so I thought it was worth a punt even if not working Anyone ever used this make.If so what are these binoviewers like ,and what would be the best strength eyepieces to look to try. I am quite short sighted so would need something with quite long eye relief,unless I try without glasses. Many thanks for any advice Mark
  5. I use the Celestron eclipsmart 10x42 solar binoculars and find them quite good for white light viewing
  6. Please pm me details for payment for the wind up red light torch Mark
  7. Hi from someone who grew up in Farnborough as a child and now lives in Kent
  8. I got some wheels for my cpc1100 which means I can just wheel it out the garage. The wheels can lock .I would have to say I would find if too heavy to carry on a regular basis
  9. be careful if you plan to by the "jumbo pocket sky atlas" - very good but you need very big pockets !!!
  10. Recorded yesterday and watched it today - very good
  11. I saw one last night and 2 that I wasn’t sure about
  12. Just ordered mine online , free patch and Lego racer as well
  13. It arrived today - rather daunted by the number of pieces of lego !
  14. Just ordered mine so I can join the club of Lego builders. For anyone who is interested Lego website says it is going to be "retired" soon so consider getting it before it becomes unavailable. The only question is should I get the lunar lander as well ? Mark
  15. Very pleased with mine , use it on a CPC1100, and updating the firmware (when needed ) is fairly straightforward
  16. So far so good,weather sunny with occasional cloud. Mercury approx 1/3 across the sun now
  17. Hi from Deal, not that far from you Mark
  18. hi from sl lower down in Kent (Deal) Mark
  19. Still got my old ZX81 - stored away somewhere ,together with the wobbly memory expansion pack that plugged in the back . Brings back memories of spending ages typing in programs by hand that been published in the computer magazines of old,and backing the programs up on an old cassette recorder !
