  1. NO but i start work at 4.30am. five days a week, and seldom home much before 6pm, and in bed for 9pm
  2. I get all that, but in the last 2 years I have managed to get out 3 or 4 times with the scope, being limited because of my working hours and location to only being able to get out Friday or Saturday nights is not helping.
  3. what were the skies like out there, I was camping just up the road at Monk Fryston during the Tour de Yorkshire last month and thought it might be alright for an observing site, am planning on asking the owners of the site, a farmers field if they would mind it being used.
  4. I been up there a few times usually park up at the gliding club, if there is anyone about there or an event on they don't mind you being there once you let them know what you are doing
  5. Si t seems we 'broke' SGL, do we win a prize lol
  6. I never said a word, or is there another 'Leigh' on here?
  7. Had several hundred items in my van today that have been onboard the ISS
  8. Be aware they may not be as good as the Karrimoor gear of old, they are now owned by Lonsdale, which are owned by Sports Direct, which is why the stores are full of Lonsdale branded gear, YOu may have got lucky, I had a pair of Karrimoor walking boots from SD that were quite cheap, lasted for years
  9. how much you asking for the mount? can collect if price is right
  10. Go you Ursula, you have come a long way since I gave you that crappy celestron EQ mount, for your first scope
  11. Eric, have a look at the jumping Jack supermax power supply, costs £80 - £100 depending on where you get it, I have one it powers my very power hungry laptop (asus ROG i7) and my very unpower hungry mount all night long,
  12. wouldn't worry about it, no one attending would let you go without hot food or water if yours don't work
  13. yeah me too, runs off one of those calor gas onion shaped propane canisters (red (Propane is better than Butane when its cold) also have a bistro single ring thing runs off those aerosol type cans, its ok for boiling a kettle wouldn't worry too much about cooking facilities we all usually share any way
  14. I put an off cut of carpet ontop of the groundsheet that matches the footprint of the tent, then I put an old double duvet down then sleeping bag with me in it on top of all that, and have been perfectly fine and warm on my experiment test run Last march at soupy's which I think as in april, I used an airbed and froze so much I eneded up sleeping in the cab of my van with the engine running all night to keep warm. Have never used a camping bed so cant say if any good or not, but the whole idea is to insulate your self from the ground with as little air in-between you and it as possible
  15. forget the airbed for camping when its cold, you are better off using just a decent camping mat, the problem being the air in the bed gets very very cold, even if you have insulated it from the ground
  16. Says -7 in the Q&A's or you can get a snugpak sleeper extreme off amazon for about £10 more, that's goes down to -12
  17. Oh and the main drive up is SS1 of the Carlisle to keilder classic rally, imagine porche 911, to MK11 Escorts been thron up it at 100mph plus, none of them looked to good afterwards
