  6. looking out the window thismorrning its like ive been transported to Venus. darn weather give us a break "please"....

    1. Knighty2112

      Knighty2112

      I know what you mean Charl. Getting severe withdrawal symptoms from viewing thru my scope. Last bit of dark sky I say was to look at Jupiter in the murk for about 10 mins in a slight break in the clouds. Was hoping June might bring some nice fine weather, but no luck,so far here! Grrrrrrr.........????

    2. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      yer mate its been 3 days since ive seen sol and then it was through cloud, today its so dark ive got the lights on in the house, hope we get a break soon.. charl

  7. clear outside,200p setup and cooling, think ill play potluck tonight " point it up and see what i can find" mind you M5 is well placed tonight. hope you all have clear skys  charl.

      weve got threat of tornados tonight, tomorrow should be clear though

      pipnina

      I don't see much scanning the sky from home. I only just managed to detect M51 in my 250px from home- stands out like a sore thumb at the dark site. Summer is a planetary-only time of year for me :/

      Have fun & clear skies!

      Since 28 of January and up to today only 3 acceptable (not so good either) nights...!  

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

  10. clouds,clouds and water vapour, crazy weather ,my street looked like a cannal earlyer.is there no end, howd you make a radio telescope?....

    1. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      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.

    2. 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...

    3. 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..

    1. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      yer mate looking good here for tonight too.

    2. pipnina

      pipnina

      I've compiled a list for tonight, too. Shame the forecast keeps lying about the visibility. It always predicts "Very good" or "Excellent" but i only ever get "Good" at best...

    3. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      ive just took a few test shots of the flame and the seeings fair to good so far.

    1. pipnina

      pipnina

      Same here, my skies got clouded over, then it rained and the visibility when there was no cloud was a borderline "moderate" (terrible). Ring nebula only just detectable.

    2. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos

      I managed to get out just now. Moon was so bright even at 0.7mm exit pupil. Got some good views of some craters real close up, 180x. It was especially good since I didn't need my glasses. Then the clouds rolled in, might have been yours, xtreemchaos, since they came from the north.

    3. xtreemchaos

      xtreemchaos
