  1. Sorry Tim Im coming in a bit late now. Wish i looked on this site earlier. I found these simulations that has helped a bit to get my head around things we have covered and things we are yet to cover. http://astro.unl.edu/animationsLinks.html#ca_coordsmotion
  2. They ended up fixing it after a few people sent them an email. Mark posted on the discussion boards that the issue should now be fixed for everyone
  3. Woo Hoo.. Got mine too... all set for next week..
  4. Has anybody done any of the courses prior at UCLAN via distance learning? If so, are you able to tell us all what we might be expecting? i.e. during orientation week, group session for distance learners since students at the uni will have their session with the teachers in lecture halls, lectures in general are they just online or is there like a virtual classroom online as well?? Also, just went onto the blackboard learn site and had a look at the search reading lists found on the left side menu. Here is the link for the UG Cert in Astronomy http://readinglists.central-lancashire.ac.uk/lists/ABFCF832-4DD1-59A5-66EB-4B796DFB046E.html
  5. Hi Rae Just received my network details today and was able to Citrix in. Yup fees are still outstanding here too. I'm sure I will see the unconditional letter as well soon via email. Meanwhile snooped around the apps up on Citrix and ensure everything else is in order. Can't submit my acceptance of the University Agreement until they have fixed the issue with the Fees, which will be done soon. Anth
  6. Sorry all take 2. The Maths Pack is what they have online already.. I meant is there any other maths PDF available apart from the one online??
  7. Hi Rae...no probs... thought I would share some of the info I have been reading from the AA1051 Facebook page... that was one that stuck out... Hey Chris.. Could you tell us if the maths pack is also available via PDF?? I remember reading something about it being sent out of available?? Anth
  8. International Students unfortunately have to pay all up front ... There are no options for pay as you go, or funding etc.. unless your work funds it all...
  9. BTW Experimental Methods is not mandatory... but it is advantageous ...
  10. Hey Rae... Finally received my conditional letter of offer.. sent off my payment tonight along with all the requirements... waiting on a reply for the unconditional letter over the next few days... already got the books...looking at possibly getting the Experimental Methods book as well by Les Kirkup...From what I read on the Facebook page from previous people that did the course, its meant to help with helping to present information for assignments...
  11. Thanks Rae. Have been advised that they were finishing up the review process last week and this week admissions tutor will be in contact with me.. Also got the message the admissions tutor was on annual leave too. Fingers crossed
  12. Can anyone tell me roughly how long it takes to get an email back to say if you are accepted or not on the courses. Applied for the intro to astronomy and the intro to cosmology. That was now 3 weeks ago. Seems a bit long.
  13. Think I can now add my signature in M37. I am using Celestron C8-SGT XLT with EQ5 Goto Mount. Backend I am switching between: -10:1 Bintel Crayford focuser, 2" 45 Degree and then a 2" to 1.25" reducer for visual viewing and -a 6.3 Focal reducer, visual back, plossl 17mm and 32mm lenses, then with DSLR tele-extender with Canon T-Ring and a Canon 600D DSLR for astrophotography
