  1. Cheers guys Still a bit confused tho, would it be safe to use for my purpose of cleaning thermal grease from aluminium/copper?
  2. Not really an eyepiece question, but wasn't really sure where to put it. Does anyone know the exact ingredients for this? Reason I'm asking is that I almost used it last night to clean the old thermal compound from a computer CPU I was changing the cooler one. it's recommended to use isopropyl alcohol, is that what's in this? I never did in the end, I just used a kitchen roll and some elbow grease but wondered for future reference.
  3. If it makes you feel better CV, amazon don't let the devs know either. Its in their terms and conditions apparently
  4. Since it's a new scope its a well known phenomenon to only see clouds for the first 3 weeks. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  5. I see your point but the OP says a starter telescope, I don't think he's going to hear "Daddy, I can't split alpha Ursae Minoris, buy me a coma corrector please!" any time soon
  6. If its just to gauge her interest you could do a lot worse than this: http://www.firstlightoptics.com/heritage/skywatcher-heritage-76-mini-dobsonian.html Under budget, surprisingly capable going by the reviews and very portable. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  7. Oddly enough that is the same odds as being able to see the moon with a tasco telescope...
  8. Pretty good but the zoom is way too quick on a nexus 4. Is it open source?
  9. The more astute of you may have noticed this was posted in the wrong thread lol Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  10. Ooh. Delos for my budget! Looking forward to a review Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  11. Holy moley. OK I want an SLR now... If I stand very still only rotating very slowly can I use myself as a a tracking mount?
  12. Sounds superb! Way out of my league tho. Maybe one day Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  13. Anyone tried looking at m31 through a uhc? I swear I can see more detail. Probably just me to be fair... Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  14. First time I saw Saturn for definite. I kinda found it by accident. I was running round the garden like a mad man lol Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  15. Pros and cons for both Buddy, with one working better on some targets and vice versa. It is said the the UHC is more of a general filter (ie works well on most targets) if you're only getting 1 I'd go for that. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  16. http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/10/30/starpath-glow-in-the-dark-roads-provide-energy-free-illumination Could prove interesting in reducing LP.
  17. Use! Damn swype! Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  18. Nice choice! I was my Meade uwa 14mm more than any other Cracking little ep. Nice price too! Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  19. Very nice! For a sec there I thought you'd accidentally pasted a full stop instead of an image of the earth
  20. Also check out khan academy. He literally does start from 1+1 all the way to things like differential equations, including a heap of physics. Highly recommended. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
