  1. 12V 2A. Here's a photo of the label on the AC Adapter
  2. Science communication could be an option for you. I did a degree in astronomy but found that sharing my passion with others was more fun than research! I've worked on loads of interesting projects, spent 10 years running the planetarium in Bristol, and now do astronomy writing as a freelancer, mostly for ESA. So it is possible to make a career out of it, although it's a competitive field -- and Covid is really hammering the sector, with science centres slashing budgets and making redundancies
  3. @FLO Do you think the stock issues will mean there's no ZWO 10% off sale this November? (I think there's a sale every year but I could be wrong!)
  4. Books are paperbacks, used but in good condition. Prices includes UK postage. (£3 discount if you can collect from central Bristol.

  5. I'm in a similar situation, not being able to balance the ZS73 with a camera attached. The spacers arrived yesterday, which helps with the issue of the focus screw getting in the way, but I'm finding that I still can't move the dovetail very far back because of where the space for the M6 bolts are. Am I missing something obvious..?
  6. That's another great shot, thanks for sharing. Have you ever done imaging with mono +filters, to offer comparisons?
