      36, but probably looking at keeping the old APS-C camera for astromodification, if I can find someone who works on Nikons.

  4. Scope is collecting subs, I'm listening to Wes Montgomery, drinking tea and watching the moon slowly rise over the fields.

      Yeah I'm testing a timer remote. I think I'm getting slightly eggy stars unguided at 90 sec, but I'll finish up this try at M101 first. So this is more a test run at longer subs before my coma corrector gets shipped.

  5. Just blown the budget on a 10" F4.8 OO!

  6. Two boxes of Jaffa cakes in two days. I don't have any self control when it comes to them...

  7. Am I dreaming? Clear sky ON THE DAY of arrival of my BRAND NEW 250PX? What's that, I start work at 5pm tomorrow you say? So I have plenty of time for a long stargaze AND sleep before work? How lucky is that!

  8. Payday tomorrow :D. Will be adding a 250PX Dob once the money is in the bank :).

  9. Ceres and Vesta bagged!

      Wide field imaging (see wide field forum) and fooling around with binos and a 60mm toy scope ;)
