    Your four-legged star-gazing companion

    Well my four legged companion is my avatar....... he is like a shadow and never leaves my side, apart from when I am at work

    Clear skies forecast tonight

    I packed the scope up around midnight as the seeing deteriorated. I continued with meteor spotting for a few more hours but didn’t really see many. The skies did clear up again later but I was too tired to get the scope back out
  3. I saw a couple of nice meteors early on, but nothing past 2am
  4. I’m reasoning the best time for Leo would be around 1:30, not that there won’t be many about before then.

    Very crisp moon shots, lovely termination too
  9. I don’t think any meteor showers are guaranteed to make your eyes pop out but I have seen a few beauties over the years. always worth checking it out More not than often.

    Do FLO & RVO have sales ?

    I am shocked FLO are always having sales there just not called sales, they simply sell things cheaper at times.
  14. I have the 27mm Pan and I have to say it is a lovely eyepiece combo with my scope...... I haven’t tried the 22 Nagler thus I can’t comment on any comparison
  15. @cotterless45 there you go Nick, that’s two copies sold
