    Other than visual astronomy (haven't got the patience or budget for imaging); I like a game of golf, a good cup of coffee / glass of wine, cooking the Sunday lunch, a rare night at the opera and a couple of pints in the local. I should probably include my three young children and a generally supportive wife!

  1. That is worrying. I guess that my iPad hasn’t updated yet…..
  2. Great write up. Glad that you are enjoying your new scope. It may be heavy, but that beats having a bendy scope! You’ll find the light shroud a subtle but definite improvement. I got one for my 10” flextube Skywatcher and was pleased with the increased contrast. Paul
  3. Nice write up Nick. What scope were you using? Paul
  4. You have certainly wrung every last bit of use out of that frame!!! Perfect timing! Paul
  5. Nice report John. The ED120 is truly a versatile scope! I haven’t had a decent session on the nebulas for ages. Must get out under the moon rather than not bothering because I can’t see faint galaxies. Paul
  6. Very nice. Plenty of mirror for those faint fuzzies! I treated mine to a light shroud. Improved contrast and kept foreign bodies at bay. Enjoy. Paul
  7. Cracking images. Almost 3D! Thanks for posting them. Paul
  8. Sounds like a fun session. You did well to catch the Hamburger with only 100mm. Paul
  9. Transparency ok here. Just an enjoyable romp through Leo/Vergo area for me. Particularly enjoyed the Markarian’s chain. Paul
  10. Sounds like a great night. You really bring it to life. Paul
  11. Got to wait for the family to go to bed and switch the house lights out. Then looking forward to a galaxy fest! I’ve got the Dob out cooling with a freshly washed mirror. Paul
  12. An incredible number of galaxies! An outstanding image. Paul
