  1. Lovely Moon

    I will have a quick check in the morning πŸ˜€
  2. Lovely Moon

    Well that was a really long day, almost dark when Ieft for work and the same again when I get home......... the only difference is it is cloudy now that I have time to observe πŸ˜€
  3. Lovely Moon

    What what a lovely sight to wake up to, a bright clear crisp morning a wonderful whisper of the Moon with Venus shining lovely and bright just below... and now it’s time for work.... what a bummer πŸ˜€
  4. There’s is an 8mm Straguider for sale on ABS for Β£35, John posted the link to the web page in his post above.
  5. I preferred the Celestron out of the two πŸ˜€ the little extra cost was worth it to me for the better feel and build quality.

    I have managed to get the 20th off work also so I have the option to stay an extra night πŸ˜€
  7. But it’s not real astronomy...

    I think he is an awesome guy and totally correct 😜 AP is for pretenders and only visual counts .........! ! I wish I was like him πŸ˜‡
  8. Venus & Mars: A Lovers Dance

    I see Neptune is coming along to steal her away so Venus will file for a divorce by Christmas and she will want half of his orbit and all of Deimos.... what an old synic I am πŸ˜€ On the positive side what a lovely romantic post. I too have been looking at Venus and Mars together this morning and they are indeed a beautiful sight.
  9. Marius Hills Dome Field

    Well I managed to get up early but not early enough to go to work as planned so I have got back into bed for an hour πŸ˜€ I did manage to get a nice 30 minutes of observing in before it got to light with Venus, Mars and Chi leonis all lined up nicely and a few other regulars looking as wonderful as ever in the early morning.... Sadly no Moon πŸŒ™

    I have set the alarm for 4 am .... I might be able to grab a quick hour before work if the skies stay clear πŸ˜€

    Nice post John πŸ˜€It is nice and clear here tonight but unfortunately I have an early start in the morning and I have to catch up with some sleep zzzzz
  14. Astronomers make up a very small percentage of the population and any action in support is likely to be minimal if any. Even when combined with the effect on wildlife very little will be done. The scaremongering marketing strategy for bright lights is well established and has been absorbed by most folk, coupled with the fact that burglary is not even on the police radar and that they are promoting the idea of lighting the place up, It's not looking promising πŸ‘
