  1. Very nice capture and presentation David.
  2. Glad you got a chance to try them out Paul. I was out for about an hour last night, but asyou say the seeing was pretty poor. Looks like it might get a bit better towards the end of the week.
  3. What a lovely surprise. I went to his show in Glasgow on Friday night and enjoyed it. What struck me most was the number of young children in the audience. Events like this must be good for the future of our hobby and science in general.
  4. Very nice post Chris. I had read about this star but it was very interesting to hear the theories direct from Tabetha.
  5. Another nice addition to your site Victor.
  6. New

    Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  7. Very nice report Victor. It's good to see you are having success with your new scope.
  8. Very useful list of summer targets Nick. If only the sky would clear I might get a chance to look for some of them.
  9. Latest arrivals from Amazon.
  10. You should have no problems as long as it can't fall over. Just one proviso. If the scope has condensation on it let it air dry, pointing downwards before you cap it.
  11. Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  12. Nice set Charl. Sunny here too, but thin misty cloud making it difficult to focus on the ARs. Still at least there is something to focus on. Hope your sky keeps clear.
  13. Hello and a warm welcome back to the SGL. If you can stretch your budget I would go for the 8SE and the extra 78% light gathering. I can't help you with the AP aspect. I only do visual.
  14. Hi. Nice to hear you are getting back into this great hobby.
