  1. Obsy Pier 42" high 5-6" diameter thick steel tube £300 would be interested an pictures of the pier
  2. Might not be the case when I was at Kelling in September 2020 (when the Autumn star party should of been not the cancelled 1940's weekend Grrrr) people where very accommodating as they were showing an interest in my rig and people around me closed curtains etc when I explained about light pollution etc also ended up doing a bit of distanced outreach. The toilet block will be closed as I'm guess Kelling may want to save money and keep them darkish also to stop people trying to use them Really it'll be an excuse to get away with my kit in a location that isn't Bortle 7 like I am at
  3. Thank you for the info I was wondering as self contained accommodation ie caravans Motorhome are allowed to travel after the 12th April is anyone booked in at Kelling for the following week as the star party was for the weekend of the 9th to the 11th April and some people do extended their stay after this The new moon is on the Monday the 12th . I transferred my booking for the following week has anyone else?

  5. Hi thinking of buying the CEM70 (with out ipolar) but getting mixed messages concerning Ascom and using SGPro (yes one of the few still using it lol ) I have a Sky Watcher AZ-EQ6 GT which has been hypetuned etc etc etc and I am wondering if you can use Sgpro as I do with the Skywatcher via a Primaluce Eagle 3 hub. It seems to state that you can bypass the handset and direct control the mount with the Ascom to SGpro?? Can someone who is in the know please advise if this is the case, its really the only thing stopping me get the CEM70 as I've managed to reduce my cable issues b
