  1. Will have to watch this later due to she that must be obeyed.
  2. Nope. No good down South either.
  3. Both the 12mm and 18mm Starguiders work really well with that scope. You will see a noticeable difference in image quality. My 18mm is my most used EP.
  4. It doesn't make any difference (to me at least). How do you even define "right way up" in astronomy. Take the same scope to the other side of the world and the image flips again.
  5. Hi Pete. Seems to be quite a few of us on here from Brizzle.
  6. Amazing! Also looking forward to some more pics of the moons.
  7. I would also suggest this as it already looks pretty good.
  8. Fantastic. I love these images with a full spectrum of colours.
  9. I can drive 10 - 15 mins South out of Bristol and be in a place where the Milky Way is visible (just). The Dundry hills block a lot of LP from the city and there's not a lot else out that way to spoil the views. Don't get me wrong, it's not perfect but a significant improvement considering the short distance travelled out of town. Of course you could carry on further into the countryside, but for me it's ideal.
  10. Just seen this on BBC news. Exciting stuff.
  11. Ok, but would the presence of ions have any detrimental impact? What I'm really trying to establish is whether there is any benefit to using deionised water for the purposes of mirror cleaning, being that it's already been stated that it still contains organics/solids. Or is it that there is simply less dissolved solids etc in deionised water?
  12. Forgive me for asking a potentially silly question, but given the above, what exactly then is deionised water free of? Sounds like normal tap water would do if this is the case.
