  1. Great site... Thanks for posting. I've almost stopped laughing... Had to put GIYF into... Yep. Now I KNOW I'm in trouble!! Steve
  2. Hello and a warm welcome from me as well. Where are you...I'm in 12 The Aveyron. ATB Steve
  3. Just read this and thought it worth sharing... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/space/nightsky/12076410/Night-Sky-January-2016.html Clear Skies Steve
  4. For magnification you state 10x-30x...If these are zoom binoculars forget them! I agree with previous post....Nice 8 x 42 are a good start. HTH Steve
  5. Lovely capture...Lots of detail and very sharp focus. Have to admit I had to look up skyris 274 but it seems to do the business!! Well done and thanks for posting. Steve
  6. As a novice I think it looks good, Dave and the stars have a "tight" shape. I think we are quite close...I live at Bouillac between Capdenac and Decazeville. ATB Steve
  7. Looking good here! https://www.meteoblue.com/en/france/weather-toulouse/seeing Thanks again Richard
  8. Doesn't sound likely but thanks for the post of an interesting site. Might have to change the Billericay bit, though! Steve
  9. That's incredible! You have a car that needs only its first MOT? Amazing!! Pics are quite good, too! Thanks for sharing them. Steve
  10. Welcome to the forum and congratulations, not only on your first post, but on a great capture considering your equipment and experience. I think you've done incredibly! Damian may be worried! Keep them coming and well done Steve
  11. Found this today and thought I'd share. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/space/11285179/Mesmerising-video-of-Moon-phases-of-2015-released-by-Nasa.html Particularly enjoyed the southern hemisphere view as it looked so different. Steve
  12. Nice one Steve. Glad you got it sorted. Made Oi chuckle too. Had to google RTFM. Steve
  13. I use one of these fitted with the polar scope and single motor for RA. http://www.firstlightoptics.com/skywatcher-mounts/skywatcher-eq3-2-deluxe.html I picked it up on UKABS for £110 and I find it great for both visual and planetary/solar/lunar imaging. I'm sure you can find a similar bargain. It's light... so portable, which in my book makes it attractive. Just the job for a 127. Steve
  14. Hi Charlie I suggest you go here http://www.12dstring.me.uk/fov.htm At the top right click on switch to visual view. Then select your scope from the dropdown at top left. Select an eye piece you have in mind from top right dropdown. Then select an object ( M31 in your question) Voila!! HTH Steve
