  1. Pretty sure. As far as I'm aware it's just a difference in OTA colour. I've used an XLT on a 6SE mount.
  2. Our local council has proposed switching off streetlights after midnight to save money. Although it's being fought by some residents, it looks like it might be happening in some areas. Perhaps you could add your weight to such a campaign?
  3. When mounting your DSLR, it's worth considering a quick release mount like this: http://www.harrisoncameras.co.uk/Shop/Tripods/Quick+Release+Plates++Adapters/Manfrotto+323+Rectangular+Plate+Adapter_MAN-323.htm
  4. Our local council installed a sort of reflector/shield on a street light due to complaints, so it does happen.
  5. Hi neighbour There's a clear view from the pitches, weather permitting. I'll be there Fri evening. It's a good site, but can get very cold, so pack lots of warm clothing and a good sleeping bag. Looking forward to it. Richard
  6. Blow off the dust first. Then use the Baader fluid. Works for me.
  7. Really looking forward to my 4th SGL star party! Having to travel very light - precious little space in car - probably just bring my 80mm refractor. So looking forward to perhaps having a peek through some of those 12" dobs....? Still fiddling with disabling the indicators at night. With my last car, I just locked it with the key, but my recent car won't play ball. May resort to insulation tape. Arriving around 6:30pm on Fri. Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces. Richard
  8. Fabulous image. Particularly the scale to put things in perspective!
  9. My down filled North Face parka is awesome. Waterproof too. Keeping feet warm is my biggest concern. I've found thick-soled trainers with warm socks to be very good.
