    How to make the club more appealing

    Being one of the 20% NGC refers to, I can only agree!!! We (Bedford) hold a monthly meeting - and these are usually well attended, weekly observing if weather permits - again usually well attended. But that is as far as it goes... Getting any feedback/input on the website, on what members would like to see/do at the society is a real challenge so we end up trying to second-guess what members want!

  6. Yeah will do. And yes, the length is with the dew shield retracted. I actually never tried to fit with the rings and dovetail on - but I can easily do that and check. I'll do over the weekend and take some pics...
  7. So, mine is in an observatory so I don't have that issue - however.... My case was recently stolen by some thieving scumbag so I found it fitted into one the large Duratool type cases - just! It's a lot smaller and easier to store than the proper case and made it easy to transport when I went to Kelling. P.S. the link may not be the exact case, so check the size!

  10. Hi You're not the only one! If you still struggle, I can provide the program - I don't know the version I have, off the top of my head, and of course, you will need your own licence key.

    Do CCD cameras 'wear out' ???

    My own library will be just over 11 hours (11 exp x 1, 2, 5, 10, 15 and 30 mins) but I only do at -20. If OP is doing more exposures or more temp variations, I can see it easily being this long. I do schedule mine to do at nights (cloudy ones!) so as not to run the cooling too hard, though...
  15. Thanks John! I'll be in touch with them
