  1. Is there anyway to incorporate that functionality onto a skywatcher mount?
  2. Hi Longnights, hope your not too close to the Cornard sports center! I must be at least 3 miles away from that and the flood lights still cast a shadow where I am! There's a great bunch of people here who will put you right on any questions you might have.
  3. Wow, that Skyprodigy looks a great bit of kit - plonk your scope down, switch on and let it align itself - simples!!! At least Jason Bradbury is flying the flag for us slap-heads I suppose.
  4. The problem I find with the Gadget Show is that its more about their egos than the 'gage' they review (as the young folkes say!). However Jon Bentley seems to be the exception to this. What was the self-aligning mount that was reviewed?
  5. Wishing you clear skies from just up the A12!
  6. Hey Steve - nice profile pic! I had a huge collection memorabilia from the UFO tv show. Sold most of it a few years back, just left with Fosters Car now. It was a great show with some fantastic vehicles - the SHADO mobile was my favourite.
  7. A bit like what happened to Tim Messenger? Yarp!
  8. Ahh, the DJI Phantom. A great bit of kit. Got several multirotors, some of which I've built from scratch. If anyone wants any pointers I'd be happy to pass on what (little) I've learnt.
  9. Hi Martin and welcome, There will be loads of great advice on here. I put a Telrad on my first scope and never regretted it. I would recommend the book 'Turn Left at Orion', tells you precisely how to find objects in the night sky.
  10. The buzzing object could well be a quad. Don't forget aliens love to fly RC too!
  11. Those UFO's on mars look exactly like rocks. Damn clever those aliens, but I'm on to theM
  12. Difficult to say from that short clip, but to me it looked like the terminal velocity of an object that had been dropped, rather than a meteorite. Could it be ice off a plane at high altitude? looked a bit dark though.
  13. Yowser! That's one heck of a setup you have there. Your motor focuser looks very neat - simple but effective. Do you have any further information on how you went about it?? Once I've got to grips with the scope and the imaging bug has bitten Its something I would like to have a go at. Nothing ventured, nothing gained as my old dad used to tell me.
