  5. At the moment I'm just taking photos with a SLR film camera. I've seen DMK 21AU04.AS Mono on FLO, does anyone have one of these & are they any good? Or should I go out and get a digital camera, if so can someone recommend me one under the £500 mark?
  6. I got the scope out this morning to look at Saturn, last time I looked at it the rings were head on, this time I could see them, wow! Also took a look at Venus.

  9. I'm planning on going to the Galloway in the next month or so before I go to my first SGL star party, with coming from Stoke on Trent I'm lucky to see a star, can't wait. Have any of you ventured up there?
  10. I'm thinking of buying a Skywatcher Skymax 102 tube only, but want to know which tripod is best? i've seen the William optics & horizon from FLO, not sure which one to choose? I like the height of the horizon because i'm going use my binos as well, does anyone know the height of the William optics tripod?
  11. I'm ready purchase a Skywatcher Maksutov 127 scope from FLO but i don't want the mount what comes with it because some are quite heavy & bulky. I want to attach it to a normal camera tripod for portability, what bracket will i need or does it come with one?

  16. Can someone recommend me a Dobsonian scope please? Max £400
  17. This is my second attempt using Philips SPC 900NC webcam and Skymax 90mm
  18. Over a week ago i was doing some stargazing about 11pm with my binoculars and noticed a moving object in the sky. I couldn't see it with the naked eye, only when i used the bino's i could see it. It wasn't flashing like a plane does, plus it moved alot faster. Then the other night i was out with my girlfriend about 10pm, she saw a similar object to the one i saw. Is it possible i could of seen a satellite, or could it be something else?

  21. I live in Hanley-Stoke on Trent where there's alot of light pollution, could someone recommend me a good spot for observing the night sky in the Staffordshire area?
  22. Well i got my first sighting of Saturn last week , then last night looked out my window to find a bright object in the sky. So i checked on Stellarium to find what it might be, it was Venus , couldn't get over how bright it was.
