  1. Thanks for the info Allan i will give this a try.
  2. That's a fine image Alan especially as it's from LP skies. I see your using an LP filter with your LRGB filters, do you think this works a lot better than using shorter subs and no LP filter?

    M81 LRGB

    That's a great image Mike, do you have bad LP where you are and do you use LP filters.
  4. There are some really odd shaped stars in this image are you using an MPCC?
  5. I don’t think my roof would slide open very well at the moment lol,,,Paul.
  6. It's from B&Q Dulux Matt Emulsion Sapphire Springs 1RB7 50BB08171 and the colour was mixed from an extra deep base, hope that helps,,,,Paul
  7. As Sy says they are threaded inserts, you will see where they go when i put the cell together.
  8. I had a couple of hours in the workshop today, without any heating that was enough. I’ve cut the circles of C/F to make the mirror cell and started marking it out.

    Pier progress

    That’s a big chunk of concrete, I think you’ve used 2-3 times as much as I used for my pier but it’s looking good,,,Paul.
  10. Well that looks spot on to me well done,,,Paul.
  11. Thanks guys it will look great in the dark
  12. Well I’ve managed to put a spider together I just need to put a 45 on a piece of 2x2 and attach it to the threaded rod to mount the mirror.
  13. Thanks for the comments and I’m so pleased I’ve got off to a good start with my neighbour. Spaceboy I will get you the colour of the paint tomorrow and as for the warm room I’m just waiting to finish the 14” newt I’m making and see how much room it needs to move about. If that’s ok I will put up a plywood wall and door to act as a warm room, now I’m just off outside to test that chair.
  14. Hi all only one more pic of the obsy and I now have a chair and some very good news. I’ve just changed all the outside lights next door and had a good chat with my new neighbour and all is great,,,Paul
  15. Well as Luke says the no north view won’t matter. I see you do imaging so to have your EQ6 drift aligned on a pier would really help with your setup time and give you more time imaging. I have just completed my obsy and it’s great, when the sky clears you can be ready to image in a few minutes so lets get building,,,Paul.
