  1. Seany, you won't be disappointed - definitely a great scope to start with. Get yourself a battery pack too, that motor loves juice! Chris
  2. Hi Seany, I've got a Celestron Nexstar 130SLT, goto, easy alignment, simple to collimate and use. (£330 on FLO) The only thing I'd say, if you obtain a brand new one, I'd invest in some better EPs and a battery pack for the motor, batteries don't last long enough to align. Happy choosing. Chris
  3. Thinking the same mate, might end up cooped in my tent for the duration, with my girlfriend.
  4. So true, no Android alternative seemingly. Planned on going camping this weekend, should I, shouldn't I?
  5. What's this weather app, that has "Scope nights", I keep seeing?
  6. Yes, that's awesome advice, cheers from me too. I've been using my phone recently and I'm unhappy with the majority of the results. Thank you.
  7. Once upon a time, I did actually measure out the scope, when I was attempting to get a custom case built, which, was absolutely extortionate. Found the dimensions, obviously with room for comfort. Length - around 65cm. Width - about 25cm. What do people do with the Tripods? Oi oi. Essentially, I want the case to contain everything however I'm residing to the fact, this isn't practical and most people only case the OTA, right? Cheers guys.
  8. When you get a response Matt, I want in. Currently using an attachment for my LG G2, for photography and nearing boiling point, where I want to purchase too - would also love to be able to use it for general photography also. Found this site, in the past, but they're all modified. http://cheapastrophotography.vpweb.co.uk/Available-Cameras.html
  9. Just seen these responses, cheers guy. Flight case is the one, I think - need something sturdy and love the idea of it being packed away, as currently, it's constantly set up in my room.
  10. Awesome. I'll have a look. My LG G2 has a pretty awesome camera on it, before I expand with a DSLR (at some point), it'd be great to utilise it for some imagery. Cheers for the knowledge, never would have thought!
  11. Where'd you get the holder from, Andrew?
  12. So, I tried it out. LG G2, hovering above my 15mm EP, with and without Barlow. Although very difficult, lots of fun. https://i.imgur.com/HW7mVt8.jpg https://i.imgur.com/AZFH8he.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3UCU7gm.jpg https://i.imgur.com/olDJlF1.jpg Focus not 100%, hand not steady enough, especially through the Barlow!
