  1. D I Y it no waiting for someone not to turn up have a go its fun.
  2. I was out one dark night the owl hooting, rustles in the hedge row, I was trying to take a picture with my phone but I couldn't see were to press to take the picture so I turned the phone over only too see two green eyes staring at me over my shoulder,it took me a few to realise it was my own reflection on the screen, needless to say I didn't stay out very long after that.
  3. That will be good with the pot holes around here
  4. Have you looked on moonlite web site for ideas on how it could fix
  5. I have one on a sct I think the bracket fixes to the focuser, well it all came as one unit from moonlite and I fitted it to the scope as one.
  6. I made some curtains out of dpm draw them when its clear to block out the lights and open them when I am finished a lot lighter than fence panels.
