  1. Superb photographic display of our Galaxy.
  2. I think you will find "older folks" have more experiences to draw upon, and will see this for what it is. Youngsters are more prone to exaggeration and fretting, see facebook/twitter for numerous examples.
  3. Does anyone know how long it takes for your pin to appear?
  4. If it's a very expensive scope, then travel to see it, you will not regret the time involved.
  5. Why am I not showing on the map, do I need to tick a box somewhere? EDIT.......sorry got it now.
  6. Yes, this has crept slowly into our news "programs", it's getting ridiculous.
  7. I can't seem to get the perspective right with this picture. Your position of Polaris looks about 20 degrees in Altitude to me, not the 52 degrees I would expect, what am I missing?
  8. I love the assumptions that we are an intelligent lifeform, we may well be, are far as the Earth is concerned. But in the universe as a whole, we may well be bumbling bacteria. Beware of what you wish for, in contacting other "Intelligences"
  9. Is this the one you are looking for....? http://www.omegon.eu/extension-reduction-adaptors/omegon-adapter-m48-male-to-t-thead-ring-female/p,22008 If not, they have many variations.
  10. Apologies if this has been posted before...... https://www.newscientist.com/article/2102584-ghost-galaxy-is-99-99-per-cent-dark-matter-with-almost-no-stars/ But why don't we understand Dark matter, what are we missing?
  11. When I saw this picture, Just for a split second, I imagined your Dob in orbit, over clouds, and the Earths horizon on the right. Then I woke up.........
  12. The Binos I use are the Binotron-27's, and I have to use a Lunt optical adapter to reach focus. See this link.........http://deepskybinoviewer.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_ID=32 Hmmm, this link does not work very well, you will need to search the site. I suggest you raise a thread on the Cloudy nights forum / Bino viewer section, you should get help from the members, they are normally very good in solving Bino issues.
  13. I have the set mounted in black card, and framed. The card is cut out, so the backs can be read.
