  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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

    I've been speaking to the campsite today and one small issue has come to light. They are a bit concerned about longer-term camping on their grass so early in the season. They've asked therefore that anyone wanting to stay in a tent for more than 4 nights either pitch on a hardstanding (its not actually 'hard' but pea gravel) or shift their tent a bit after 4 nights (no need to move pitch or completely re-site the tent). So far we've got 7 hardy souls who are booked for 5 nights or more. If this causes anyone a problem can you PM me please and we can discuss options.

    The good news is that they've now allocated us some more pitches, so capacity is around 100 pitches (of which around 60 are booked so far).

    Thanks

    Helen

  8. 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

  9. but they are running a business at the end of the day.

    I agree, they are running up business but if they try harder to run the business they may suceed and gain more custom in the process.

    If we all had good local shops thet were willing to help, we would all prefer to spend our hard earned cash in their shops and not soo much on the internet.

    Like I said previously, it doesnt cost the staff in the shop anything for a bit of good old brittish customer service.

    Cheers
