  1. I think the terms of use of this board state that all posts have to be in English. Text talk is NOT English and there is no need or requirement for it here. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  2. No 2+ should be ok, just not 1! Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  3. Can we do away with the text talk please? Most annoying! Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  4. Are you using a USB 2 port? Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  5. Maplin not mailing!! Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  6. It is easy to do - I ran one from a powertank before. You might want to get all the components new - Mailing do them all very cheaply. Ensure that you reduce the 12v from the powertank down to 9v as well!! Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  7. I'm pretty sure that Buzz didn't just twiddle his thumbs while Neil.landed! I'm sure he would have had vital jobs to do too. A wonderful man. He will forever be one of my heroes - not just for landing on the moon, but for lamping that moon landing nay-sayer (violence not condoned, but he asked for it!)

  9. There is a good QHY5 on Astro Buy Sell at the moment. Nothing to do with me, but they are great lunar/planetary/guide cams - I know cos that's what I use! Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  10. Bob is absolutely ace! Can't rate him highly enough. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  11. Very nice. Sharp and contrasty, most importantly you didn't miss any areas! Well done. (It is upside down though...) Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  12. The Catholic Church has a very active astronomy section, looking.into Intelligent Design, I believe (although this is not the place to discuss the ins and outs of this topic, please!) I also believe that one of the authors of TLaO is a Catholic monk? Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  13. There is a pair of Hawke ProStalk 8x56 EDs on astrobuysell at the moment. £175 IIRC - a pretty good price. Not connected to the sale, just thinking it might help? Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  14. Quick snap of the moon to try my QHY5 out on it. 100 frames stacked from 600. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  15. Haven't had much time for astronomy recently, with the run up to Christmas etc. Managed to get an hour or so out last night before the rain came in. Have borrowed a Celestron 127 Nexstar SLT from my bro-in-law. Tracking was awful and it wouldn't align (I now believe it is set up the wrong way - arm is on the right of the scope viewed from the ep and it should be on the left?) Also, the QHY5 wasn't talking to my network. Still, managed 1 min AVi with the following result. Not too bad... Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  16. Yes, I have that exact set up on my newt. It works very well. You can adjust the focuser by the smallest of increments. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  17. You were obviously all very good this year! Brilliant set up. Enjoy. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  18. No they are tree lined boulevards. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  19. The HiTech hub on the same page as the above link words well with the SW autofocuser. I have one for my Newt. Can't see why it wouldn't work with your frac. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  20. That is good. Focus looks great and lots of detail. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  21. Sweet! Great that you've caught the moons. I do like the naturalness of the image. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  22. A fine pair of images. Nice detail. Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
  23. So we know which one is the best value for money! We're still the early pioneers of solar system exploration - the Lewis and Clark of the space age if you like. Sure, there will be mistakes, but we might just become the shoulders' of giants... Sent from my GT-I9001 using Tapatalk 2
