  1. Just ordered a 10mm SLV to complete the set from 5mm to 25mm.. Will the 10mm Delos survive???? 

  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!

       have you tried it with a CC ?, I had too adjust my primery up the tube nearly as far as it would go to get enough back focus with my 1200d.  charl.

      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... 

  3. 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!

      3.30am that's hardcore and dedication mate, I had a few hours from 8pm till about 10.30pm trying my new little newt, bagged the flame and o-neb, but boy it was cold and I had double thermals on. I look forward to your pics of the box of frogs.  charl.

      Thanks Charl, I was called mad at the time.. but really when do you get the opportunity working 7 till 7, with a youngster and the like.. 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!

  4. Showing frames through the soup! Well I'm desperate, why else would I.. just for laughs I'll post what I get with the 433 frames on the moon.

      I've brought my gear into work.. I'll see what I can do at lunch.. tempted to have a few frames at venus later, to see what I get!

      Just woke up...! I've been up since before 6...!! Still only another 30 years to go before I can retire..!!! :-(

      the seeings pants at the moment, but we do have some new action.

  6. I say this camera can rattle of some frames in burst mode... How I ended up with nearly 200 in that space of time I'll never know... Time to see what I've got!?

      lovely mate, ill check them out.

  7. Mount tripods and a big blanket make a great Den for a two year old to play in... no good for my back though, crawling in and out of that wigwam!

  8. From an outstanding Jupiter session last night to re skimming a wall tonight... Oh the highs and lows!

  9. Looks like a morning for solar... and hopefully an afternoon of cracking solar photo's from our imaging collective!  Hope it's clear for you!

  10. This FLO sale is killing me in more ways than one... my EP collection (price) is about as stable as the Chinese stock market, and the only solution I can think of is quantitative easing... maybe time to use my alternate delivery address.. :unsure:

  11. Just been doing a spot of gardening... pesky branch in the way! fairly sure my neighbour was in hysterics over the entire thing as he toasted me with his glass of fizz.. Merry Christmas sgl x

  12. That's a fantastic sunspot this morning, if you can you should have a look!

  13. 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..

    1. xtreemchaos

      News paper over the head....

  14. Seems like ages since if had the scope out... Not even managed a go with the binoviewrs.. Soon though, soon.

  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!

      So the next course of action, 8" X 8" Oak posts every 4' across the garden, 5' in to the ground and to make them look nice 3" rope hung through them

  16. Brought the scope into work for a white light lunch, with the promis of clear skys... complete about turn by met office and COS... Still looks to be clear tonight now instead!

  17. Just opened the box on the new celestron star pointer pro... curiosity got the better of me, so I'll post a review shortly! looks an interesting piece of kit.. cheapish and light weight hence the interest.

  18. Thanks to dobbie, the search is over!

      Yes, i have an astromaster AZ mount that is just begging for a little frac to use on it, i like the look of the carbon 70mm on abs but its a bit steep

    3. Fozzie

      Fozzie

      I figured that's the one you were looking at... I'm tempted by the magrez with flattener on abs but again.. bit much... couple of ikle 66mm on flee bay at the moment too

    4. Alien 13

      Alien 13

      Cant beat a 70mm ish ED its so versatile lunar/solar/widefield/comets the list is endless

  20. out tonight... starting with kembles cascade through to cassiopia and straight down through the MW. . will look in on m13 and a few others too.. great times ahead!!

  21. I can confirm that the 15mm slv is a heck of a good ep! Just blown away M13 with the 200p, not even from a dark sky either! Happy happy happy.

    1. nightfisher

      nightfisher

      No luck again... all packed up ready to go to my dark site and the baby monitor went up like a Christmas tree.. an hour and a bit later little Oli was all settled again and I called it a night! Just a sickness bug we think.. poor thing!

      I've now got the 6, 9, 12, 15, 20 & 25mm mainly for the frac but they'll be great in the 200p too.. and I'm also looking at a 72mm ed for travel..

      Lots of clouds coming!

    3. nightfisher

      nightfisher

      Nice, might take a look with them at Ingleton
