  1. Been looking for one of these since I bought my 8SE; from your self if I remember correctly. Happy to offer the £25 inc postage, even happier if you can accept less LOL
  2. The only solution I see, which is detrimental to our preferred suppliers, is to stop making future purchases until the skies clear, then wait at least a year to make sure the skies are clear. OR, the Zarkov cloud zapper as sold by FLO
  3. Do you already have a go to mount? Cloudmakers do a suite of applications for MacOS which seem to work , based on the INDI protocol but I have not yet tried these in anger. This is the summer’s research Otherwise, there is not a lot for MacOS.

  7. There was moving picture made as well.
  8. Thing with May’s book was introduction of the “prequels” such as Diamond Jack i”m never sure if I bed print order or ‘universe’ chronology. Same with the Foundation universe.
  9. Hazelnuts is it not? Peanuts in a marathon in the land of the leader of the “western world” peanuts are in a Mars Cloudy AND wet
  10. Add a metal washer between plastic and screws will mark, and hold washer, silicon will allow secondary to be rotated without catching if that makes sense? think it was a video from astronomyshed where I saw this
  11. First set of updates on a win10 system take forever. I had one that was 3 days once I left it alone.....
