  7. Hi all, Here are my first ever images sinse purchasing my ED80. I was unable to set up the guide scope as the camera wouldn't work so the images are both un guided. Lots of help from people at SGL which was really apreciated. M42 15 x 20s subs 20 x 30s subs iso - 1600 5 x darks Stacked in DSS Processed in CS4 M13 20 x 30s subs 5 x darks iso - 800 Stacked in DSS Processed in CS4 Please let me know what you think.....
  8. The images I've posted above look really bad compared to the image I have saved on my PC, how should I save the image to be able to post on here without losing the quality? Cheers Neil
  9. Yet another great SGL star party, very well organised and you even brought the clear skys along for the last 3 nights. Hopefully I've posted below my first ever 2 images of M42 and M13 un guided from the last couple of nights and must personally thank, Deano, Squiddy boy, Gnomey, Mick, Hankey, Ian and anyone else that helped me with setting up the new image rig. Hopefully it wont be long until I'm guiding. Cheers Neil
  10. Still waiting for thiswhite stuff to go away, might have to pack up for the night, its mighty cold now. Cheers Neil
  11. Hi Hex, Well it depends on what you want to achieve and see but £450 can get you alot of good scopes new and second hand. You could pick up a 12" standard dob or flextube second hand for £450 and that will give you great views of galaxies and the planets and you can re-learn the night sky at the same time. Cheers Neil
  12. We're here and waiting but the sky is full of white stuff !! Theres always tomorrow..
  13. Hi, I've had this webcam for a while now and used it many times however not for a while and the software I had for it was saved on an old laptop that packed up and I can find the disk for it. Does anyone know of any links to the original software that would have come with it or links to any other software that can be used instead. Cheers Neil
  14. I'll find you wednesday somewhere stumbling along the banks of the river looking lost and confused then... oh and tree hugging !! Cheers Neil
  15. I'm assuming the FLO guys are gonna be at this years party, if so please bring lots of dew prevention equipment for sale I'm sure many of us will be needing some, I know I will need something and I'll bring along some spare cash. Oh... and if you could bring along clear skys aswell that a be even better !! Cheers Neil
  16. Well if anyone needs to warm there toes I'm sure we will have plenty of room in our tent to come and warm up with a nice cup of tea! And we'll give you all a couple of hours fun watching us put up the tent when we arrive, as its only our 2nd time of using it just hope its not raining and windy. PS - I forgot to say, excluding the SQUIDDY BOY! you know who you are, you cant have our gimp friend that i keep in the back of the tent.
  17. Thanks again, Would I also be able to use these rings if I just wanted to piggy back the scopes? Cheers Neil
  18. Thanks guys, they are all great options and the cheaper gemini bars could be the ones but I was specifically looking for something like the bracket I saw as it included the scope ring holder which I dont have yet for my guilde scope. Unless you could recommend some good priced guilde scope rings for my ST102 scope that would also fit the genini bar? Cheers Neil
  19. Hi all, I was thinking of making my own with some aluminium bar but the cost for the aluminium is quite alot. however, i've found this website below that's selling this bit of kit that would be perfect for me. I'm just wondering if anyone has used this website before or if anyone has the bar that I'm looking at buying. Also does anyone think it would be compatible with my HEQ5. Special 2-scope Assembly Unit for CG5/EQ6/GP/LXD75 mounts Accessories - Ken Dauzat cheers Neil
  20. looking awesome mate, cant wait to see more of your progress with this project. cheers neil
  21. Hi Helen, We have a large tent which would be really difficult to pitch on the hard standing area, tried this last year at another campsite and in the end we got moved to a grassed pitch. We are only staying for 4 night, Wed - sun I'm assuming, we will be ok to stay on a grassed pitch? Many Thanks Neil
  22. Champagne, cake and candle for me on the thursday night at SGL thats if the wife (Shaula) remembers its my birthday and treats me !! Cheers Neil
  23. Nice Rug..... I mean carpet lulu !! very similar to the carpet we have for our new tent although I think ours is of a beige colour, wont really notice colour when the red lights are on, and no not those type of red lights. Looking forward to party again this year. cheers Neil
  24. Has anyone made or does anyone have any suggestions for making a side by side dual mounting bar system like this one below? I'm thinking of making one and am about to purchase some Aluminium Flat Bar, bits and bob etc so I can engineer something but would really like any hints or tips befor I start chopping and drilling. Cheers Neil
