    Cloudy Skies every night

    It does get frustrating, i was up at Kielder Observatory at the weekend courtesy of a voucher bought by my children, guess what! totally clouded out and rain just means i will have to go again sometime. The good thing is though, when the cloud does clear all the stars,planets, galaxies and everything else will still be there

    Galloway Autumn Star Canp 2019

    I think people have misunderstood what i was asking? i didn't mean that the star party would be dangerous, i meant that me thinking could be dangerous... what i was asking really was would the star party be hindered by smoke and fireworks as it is so close to bonfire night or is it remote enough for this not to be an issue?

    I meant me thinking could be dangerous not the camping aspect,

    Galloway Autumn Star Canp 2019

    I've yet to get myself to this camp site, past dates not really been favourable but there is a possible chance for 2019, i know this camp site is supposed to be a little remote, just thinking(could be dangerous) aloud, the dates for this camp fall over what i would have thought would be Bonfire weekend? which would mean lots of bright explosive things going off in the sky as well as smoke from bonfires, would this not be some what of an issue or does that sort of thing not affect the camp site because of where it is situated? if I'm being daft just tell me to shut up
  5. According to this review on FLO website it does, https://www.firstlightoptics.com/pro-series/skywatcher-evostar-80ed-ds-pro-outfit.html
  6. Welcome to SGL I think you might get better response to your question if you post it in the "Getting started Equipment help and Advice " thread, sorry i can not be of help with the telescope question,

    Bookings Update

    Fingers crossed, i may be able to make it, was just wondering though how close to everyone else is the pod in long meadow? as that is not on the pitch plan?
  8. Seriously tempted with this, would this be a good match with SW ED 80 Pro ?

    I could be wrong, but i think it's when someone clicks the like button on something you have posted you get 1 reputation point

    Beautiful walk in Mid Wales

    looks rather nice, wonderful scenery, i am going to that area near Knighton myself in June, hope the weather is as nice,
  14. Hi Eddie, you need to adjust these 3 knobs to achieve polar alignment the large one at the back for alt (up/down) the 2 smaller ones for az (left right) loosen one and adjust the other and vice versa depending on which way you need to move it,
