    As above! Lovely, especially the time lapse Is that a crop from a wider lens or..? Cheers Paul

    More NLC action

    Lovely timelapse sequence. Clearly shows the impact of the change in lighting on the clouds as the sun moves west to east. Nice!

  6. I had a 14" non-GoTo version for a while. Optically OK but built like a tank! Not the most portable...IMO. Cheers, Paul.

    Veil Nebula with Bino’s ?? Doable ??

    I regularly observe the eastern Veil in late summer and autumn from my back garden in Swaledale. Canon 15*50 IS binoculars. No filters. Occasionally western and Pickering Triangle. Good luck Paul
  12. Take the turning opposite the garage and drive straight up the mountain to here https://earth.app.goo.gl/QAy43 Tarmac road (a bit of dirt) then concrete fire road. Check it during daylight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can also set up in a flat area before starting upthe concrete road. A technical drive! I have been quite a few times. Great for DSO observing. Paul
  13. TMB 92mm f5.5 APO then 16" Dobsonian. 31 Nagler and 13 Ethos with both. For wide field deep sky or faint deep sky. Have fun! Paul

    AstroTrac 360

    You can submit questions via the website. Looks like in 2 axis mode a ball head can be mounted on the DEC 'circle' with all the holes. This is where the RA arm is attached to the wedge. Cannot see anyway to do it as a single axis mount though... ...Paul P.S. It will take a PoleMaster with an adapter...

    AstroTrac 360

    Will a PoleMaster fit..? It does seem to be a stunning piece of kit... ...the price made me gasp though. Cheers Paul
