  1. Wow, that is stunning. (Not an imager, here for the eye candy...)
  2. Glad to see you're still as enthusiastic as ever Nick I grabbed the scope for the first time in years yesterday, and popped in here today to see what was going on - again for the first time in years. Nice to see some old faces still here.
  3. Wow that's gorgeous - especially the reshoot I'm purely visual but I do like the eyecandy from you imagers. I have a hand-scribbled note in my observing bible to look out for the "Draco triple" of 5981/2/5, from someone on here sometime or other, but I never have.
  4. (Well this is weird... I've just logged in after a 4 year absence to find recent activity flagged on this old thread of mine!)
  5. Yes thanks all, I had a really nice time even if the clouds were predominant (although I did get a smidgen of observing on Wednesday evening ). We had some good conversations in the evenings and as ever, it's all about the social and stars are a bonus. Sorry for bailing early but I was shattered - turns out I was coming down with a cold
  6. No, I got it wrong... I'm on holiday elsewhere next week, then over to Pencelli the following week
  7. Hi guys, I've been totally switched off from astro since SGLX but I'm really looking forward to this See you a week Wednesday!
  8. Oh noes! I've only just seen this (which tells you how much attention I've been paying to astro lately...) but alas I've already committed to Pencelli on the same week. I was thinking to do a weekender with you guys as well, but the gods of chronology are against me. I'll miss finding out what the Cyborg Astronomer has wrought this time I hope you guys have fun Kev PS Mark, nay bother, you've always said the emphasis is towards the tail end of the name "star party" and I know what it can be like trying to organise things between and around your own life. Hopefully, "build it and they will come" applies Sorry I can't join you this time around.
  9. And BOOM, Qualia strikes again As someone who thinks he knows a bit about some of this stuff, I'm flabbergasted at how much information you have packed into here and how much of it was either new to me, or more coherently and cogently explained than I've seen before. And I know how much time it takes to write technical things down properly, how much effort it takes to convert it from a jumble of details to a coherently narrated guide which is easy to read and leads you through the material gently and neatly. So once again, thank you. I tip my hat to you, Rob. And +1 to the idea of you collecting these into a book - I would buy 'The History, Science, Observation and Poetry of the Universe, by Qualia' in a heartbeat
  10. "Today's unprecedented solar eclipse is no cause for alarm..." Sorry Nick couldn't resist! :-p
  11. Well dayum. You're a bit far away from me, but should you be passing Bristol... ;)
  12. The weather has turned too nasty for astro ... ... so ... ... tonight's Pluto of Balvenie DoubleWood is sliding down rather nicely
  13. Wow, good work getting out there. And a daytime near-full moon to end on today, one of my favourite views - aka DeathStar moon to me
  14. FWIW, AstroTux has the same (1200mm fl 10" dob) and I think said he had heard something similar, but he bought the full set of BSTs for his and rates them well
