    Mars

    Is it just me but I don,t remember ever seeing Mars as bright as it is at the moment.The magnitude is -1.8 and I heard it may go out to -2.2 that,s Venus territory.Maybe somthing to do with the dust storm possibly reflecting more sunlight back?

    A few craters from this week.

    Excellent some incredible detail there.
  3. It’s what’s called a “bird jones” design which incorporates a lens in the wonky focuser making collimating nigh on impossible,an sw130 on a eq3-2 secondhand would be the way to go.

  9. I would of thought it would be dob users that tend to use the 100* eps therefore less nudging (I hate nudging)I use 70* myself which to me seem ample,however some numty did let me look through a 21 ethos and grrrr#&@mmm!.
  10. Yes I too have wondered that he has been very quiet.As for the st80 I am thinking of getting one myself.

    Street Lights can cause cancer?

    Just had smart meters install and I mentioned how much the council would save if the lights where switched off after a certain time,he wasn’t happy apparently he lives in a village nearby by and he can’t see his hand in front of his face when he walks his dog.Lucky fellow I thought was gonna lend him my most expensive torch if he told me where he lived!
