  1. I'd like to get some tube rings for my C6, what do most people go for?
  2. Which buttons do you press to put the starsense HC into firmware upgrade mode? I've forgotten how.
  3. I had to fight Hertfordshire county council all summer over one of these new lamps. Eventually they fitted one with glare shields that stops light pollution to the front and rear. However it has wide angles of light either side of the lamp which still pollutes my garden. Before midnight I've not a hope in hell of any decent viewing so for now I'm switching to lunar viewing. If it's dry tonight I'll take a photo and post it here.
  4. I think I can make it as long as I have a few days notice.
  5. With the right lighting you could demonstrate the lunar X in school science lessons.
  6. Interesting, when the autumn arrives I might go take a look.
  7. I'm going for it tonight but I suspect I might be cloud dodging...
  8. I hope this evening we have some good news.
  9. What's the latest LP pic look like?
  10. Monty

    Dew problems

    Put the camera in a box with some descant after the session is over?
  11. CPC 800, I'm just a little baffled at the moment. What I need is a long wind free clear night to play with all the options.
  12. I keep getting alignment failed when I choose the automatic alignment. I wish the manual was a little more helpful.
  13. Reduced weight, some refractors need Arnie to lift them.
  14. Okay, well since 2014 arrived GPS is spot on and the date/time is now correct.
  15. Just got this reply from the bods at Celestron... So, there is a work around and they might have a firmware fix soon.
  16. I've gone through all the settings and tried all the possible combinations. Still not happy.
  17. Used the Nexstar+ HC with finderscope and aligned in 2 minutes! I'll be asking for my money back as the starsense is not fit for purpose and I'll purchase a nice new right angled finderscope instead. Lesson learnt.
  18. Okay just checked the date and time and the onboard GPS module is giving correct lat/long but time is a year out! Not happy, not impressed and this is after I updated the firmware.
  19. Just checked the GPS details and it's way off. Changed to manual lat/long entry and trying one last time. 25 minutes later... Okay just checked the date and time and the onboard GPS module is giving correct lat/long but time is a year out! Not happy, not impressed and this is after I updated the firmware.
  20. Failed half a dozen times, checked settings and all is okay.
  21. Uh oh, just did my CPC as well...
