      I'll second that.. lovely phase to observe.

  2. Interesting this canon 750d will native focus with my 200p newt.. regular focuser too... thought that was not probable but don't mind if I do!

      I've not got a CC charl, never really had toone much need for one as it never really bothered me visually... I expect that will take my focus off.. need to see what the results are like with the 200p and the moon...

  5. Sure it's clear.. but even at 112x the moon is dancing all over the place.. box of frogs! Been up since 3:30 shooting frames, it'll take me 3 days to process it all!

I've got PiPP working through the first 900 frames for me tonight, then im going to try a mosaic from 2 panes around 400 each... then I took some avi of Clavius... see what I get out of it!

    1. Fozzie

      Fozzie

      Haha many thanks John, I've not seen it yet, hopefully it comes across ok, difficult to put down in 170 words or less.. I'll have to pick up a copy ASAP. S@N approached me via Green witch telescopes where I bought the scope from, right out of the blue so I thought I'd give it a go..  Thanks Fozzie

  14. with the persistent dark cloudy days and night I think ive become adverse to the sunlight... which is currently actually hurting my eyes through the office window... sometimes you just can't win..

  15. so at 2 am this morning a group of morons in a car drove through my front garden, totalling the good lady's car and pushing mine of the drive and into the garden, before driving off again.. its either speed or alcohol, but probably both... unbelievable and it was cloudy too, complete toilet of an evening!

  20. Why does the Luna eclipse have to fall on a "up for work morning"

    1. Fozzie

      Fozzie

      But is it going to be clear...? I've already told work I'm going to be tired at not to be disturbing me with anything but asking me if I want a cuppa!

  21. Thanks to dobbie, the search is over!

      Good for you.. there's a couple on abs at the moment, really need to man up and sort one out.. glorious blue sky this morning but the thought of setup the f11 on the extended skytee for what could be 15mins of looking just seemed too much..

  25. Turning my back on DSO objects, who needs to hunt for silly little clouds, i can find clouds any time of the day or night, sticking to Solar system, but concentrating on Luna

    1. Fozzie

      Fozzie

      I do like the term silly little clouds even though that's what I spent 4 hours on last night.. I guess. The good thing with Luna is there are always evolving views bring different views to the same object especially when the terminator is involved, loads of things to see again and again.. I always enjoy my Luna obs.
