    Sad news indeed, but what an incredible life he lived. RIP
  2. Tricky conditions for me so far, mist cloud and bright moon. Looking forward to hopefully catching a glimpse in the coming week or so
  3. Many thanks Steve, looking forward to hopefully catching a glimpse of Comet Lovejoy in the next couple of weeks, I have been unsuccessful so far. Mist cloud, then cloud and mist, then when it clears a bright moon! Fingers crossed. Happy new year to you.
  4. 500 million mile remote control......freaking awesome
  5. think they are taking a lunch break, back at 1.00pm they said
  6. I went out with my 10x50's for a short time this evening and took in M31 as a starting point, I am lucky enough to have dark skies here, but its already been said, the moon is bright tonight and the view was really quite poor It does get better with less moonlight. I have no problem viewing M31 with 10x50's and on moonless nights its an easy naked eye object.
  7. Thank you Robin and ronin, thats very helpful and more information than I managed to find.
  8. Hello all, I am trying to set up my ocular views in Stellarium for my Meade ETX70. I have 3 standard Meade MA eyepieces 25mm, 12mm and 4mm Stellarium has accepted those eyepieces and calculated the magnification for each one correctly. However, it also needs the aFOV for each eyepiece. Could someone please be kind enough to point me in the right direction to find this information or explain how to calculate it. Many thanks
  9. Very lucky here, can see them down to about mag 6. Blessed with dark skies, sadly there covered in a blanket of cloud for most of the time. But it takes at least an hour for my eyes to adapt in order to see them at that magnitude.
  10. Very nice, totally cloud covered here in Ireland at the moment.....still hoping though
  11. wow....that's a one in a million shot, even caught the contrails
  12. Very sad news indeed. Rest in peace
  13. Thanks for that, Yes, the GSO is on my list for consideration, Im still undecided at the moment. But I can certainly get the GSO to here cheaper than the others.
  14. haha! I never thought of it that way, I do hope your wrong
  15. Many thanks for this After a bit of a delay in the post, I finally have a nice pair of 10x50's so will trying to track down some of your suggestions, in fact I'll have to catch up on Octobers as well. But at the moment I am paying the price of my recent purchase......cloud, cloud..........and more cloud. I wonder if new binocular owners have to wait as long as new telescope owners for the cloud to clear. Surely not
  16. Many thanks for your review. Im 99.9% sure that my next scope is going to be a 12" Dob and probably a solid tube version. So far I have narrowed it down to this model or possibly the GSO 12" dob. Your review was well timed, and has given me more to think about
