  2. Hiya Matthew, are you still in the market for a Takahashi doublet ?
  3. Hiya HAlfie, are you still looking for one of these scopes? I have a mint 100 DF.
  4. It’s looking good again tonight Alan I am going to sit back in one of the lounger chairs and just stare 👁
  5. Cheers Calvin..... they sure are I think I will be coming here on holiday with the scope at some point in the near future
  6. I am on a work related visit to the outskirts of Gyor in Hungary and one useful thing I noticed earlier in the daytime is that there are very few street lamps and even fewer main roads As a result I had been hoping all day long that it would be clear tonight, and as luck would have it clear is an understatement. For reference Cassiopeia is directly above my head and we all know what streaks through Cassiopeia... yes you got it, it’s the Milky Way. I can hardly believe what I am seeing with the unaided eyes, it is just such an awesome sight. In fact there are so many stars and smudges I was having trouble identifying very obvious targets such as Vega, Altair, the Plough and even Cassiopeia for a while. The sky is completely covered in diamonds and there are so many that I know very few of them. I can only sit here and imagine what looking at them through the scope would be like
  7. @Trikeflyer I somehow ended up with 2 handsets so hopefully this may get me by as I am sure the original hasn’t been upgraded. I am glad you mentioned a second handset
  8. you can enter the SAO on the Ioptron that’s what I use now the interface is messed up.
  9. Yes ... mine has simply stopped working on the iPad and iPhone and I cannot get it to work I had a similar issue a year ago and SS said it was an issue with the new iPhone. However, it started working when SS was updated. As a result I came to the conclusion it wasn’t the phone. Maybe SS should consider past lessons learned when they update !!!!
  10. I have version 6.5. I have done several updates, not so sure about upgrades, and I have discovered tonight that it is not working
  11. I use mine with SkySafari with my apples and it is seamless
