      good idea Pip,theres a small chance at 8pm it becoming 50% clear here, but looking outside it dont look good,but if the wind picks up it might blow it away, ill keep my finger crossed.charl.

    3. pipnina

      pipnina

      For me, whenever clearoutside says something like "14% overcast" or "25% overcast" it ends up being more like "14% not overcast". Like the other day when I got all set up with my camera to see clouds forming over the horizon and engulf the whole sky...

    4. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

       well lastnight i got 25min on the orion neb, which was a suprize because it said 100% cloud cover. so i keep having a look every 15 min, im allways hopefull, you have to be in this hobbie mate..

    3. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      thanks Shaun, it was still not dark enough to get 20sec subs at 12 oclock ,it was 1am before I could go over a minute, ill be glad when its October and we can start at 9pm, I'm a bit worried at keeping the nextdoor nabours up with the noise of the rig and shutter, its not loud but at 2am you can hear a mouse let wind.

      hope you have clear. charl.

    4. Pig

      Pig

      LoL Charl, I know what your saying, my first goto seemed silent until time passed into the early hours, then all of a sudden it sounded alarmingly loud..... but I am sure it's all in our minds and no one can hear them ?

      That's a serious piece of kit! Back to looking for rubber wallpaper then. I picked up a copy of Astronomy Now yesterday so have been reading about all the stuff that will be clouded out in 2019 :grin:

    4. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      thanks David, its a bit over cull but I shouldn't have to upgrade for a few years, gpus are very cheap at the mo, I got the 2 rx580s for £280 s/h, last year you couldn't find them for £500 each with the bitcoin miners grabbing them all. wishing you clear charl.

  15. i shouldnt of brought that new camera,i thought the curse wasnt as bad with 2hand stuff,you know what thought did"thought wrong"...

  16. I'm sat waiting for the full moon to rise

      xtreemchaos
