  1. Thank you for doing that with my picture. Yes I've addressed the hosting of my pictures now (well within 30secs of posting this reply)
  2. Hi there, yes thanks for the comment on the pucture & especialy thanks for the star chart! My telescope specs are well, it's a 700mm x 90cm Bresser Lyra (ironic that picture of Vega was in the constellation Lyra hey ) the main thing was when I tried to view a few other objects they went out of view very quickly so I was wondering if a Plossl eye piece at 4mm might help me track things more easily? All my eye pieces so far start with a K & I heard that Plossls have a wider field of view. Arr well wish the clouds would go away for a bit here in N. Wales! Thanks again, Dave
  3. Thanks all, everyone here's so freindly I can tell your a good bunch :0) Vega is cool, not quite Uranus or Neptune as I thought it might be lol. Actually I thought at first it was Neptune because it was so blue. When I've learnt to use this scope I have I'm most certanly gonna buy a new one. One thing I noticed though using my 4mm eye piece, objects moved to quick out of view so do you think maybe I should buy a Plossl eye piece? I've heard they have a wider field of view? Dave
  4. Hi Kev soz mate was just a fluke that it got that big; the eld pic mate. I set my Grans digital camera to what I think was the biggest picture and left the shutter open for 15 seconds on top of her garage. Quite addictive this astonomy & astrophotography lol, been reading today in the library about it. Expensive but def. worth it!
  5. Ok thanks I'll try & locate them. lol the business I’m in is that competitive any way it’s not worth getting into lol. ES E EX is unfortunately (for me) the most difficult & competitive market on the Net. But I have a new question. Has anybody ever seen Transient Lunar Phenomena?
  6. Sorry if the pic was to big, sort of just learning this stuff. The image hosting is just the server that hosts my online company. I can change it if anybody wants me to, it's not a problem! Just want to make friends here at the forum, thanks :0) Dave
  7. That's dead cool! I'm made up, looks really blue lol. So does that mean it's a very hot star? I tried to find the Whirlpool Galaxy last night to but just couldn't get it. What do you think is a good DSO to see with a small 70mm refractor? I can't wait to look at the moon just it seems to come out a bit to late at the moment. Holey Moley think I'm hooked... lol
  8. Hi everyone this is my second post, my first was in the introdcution forum room. I'm very new to this but last night I went out with my new Lyra Refractor scope & cheap digital camera. I took this photo: It was (measured by my compass) SE in direction & quite high in the sky at 2340. Sorry I can't be more exact but I'm still learning! I was just wondering if anyone can help me as it was bright blue & seemed to be reflecting light; is it a planet? I'm still learning star charts etc, if anyone can help tell me what I might have seen I would be so happy, many thanks, Dave
