  1. I use SkySafari+. I can link it to my NexStar 6E. Very impressed with it.
  2. I take my glasses off, but have them on one of those cord thingys round my neck so they are to hand when I need them.
  3. Sorry. Try this Astronomy - Eyewitness Companion (Paperback) - Ian Ridpath - 9781405394505
  4. I see The Book People are selling this handy little introduction to astronomy for £4.99 (instead of £12.99). I like these Eyewitness Guides. They are nicely illustrated and contain a wealth of information in a concise format. The Astronomy book makes a nice introduction. Astronomy - Eyewitness Companion
  5. Maybe it's an alien craft which only appears on April 1st
  6. Wow! Saturn is stunning. This motivates me to start imaging.
  7. I use SkySafari plus, also, linked to my Nexstar 6SE. I find it much better than the handset. It doesn't charge the iPad, but doesn't drain the battery much.
  8. Great images. Thanks for sharing them.
  9. I use SkySafari 3 Plus with my iPad linked to my Nexstar 6SE and find it works really well.
  10. Great to see these cards. I can just vaguely remember seeing some when I was a youngster. Thanks for posting. I for one would be interested in seeing the full set.
  11. Oops, I've just seen that you are in Canada http://stargazerslounge.com/images/icons/icon11.gif
  12. If you are in the UK, you can order from the Widescreen Centre. I bought the lead from FLO.
  13. You can use Sky Safari + (don't need the pro version). You also need Southern Stars Skywire serial accessory and a standard PC serial cable for your telescope (see Southern Stars • Products • SkyWire). I use it with my Celestron 6SE connected to my iPad. Once connected it will show on the iPad where the telescope is pointing, will enable you to get info about that or any other object, and will goto any object you select in Sky Safari. Hope this helps.
  14. Likewise, very happy with my 6SE, but don't have anything else to compare it with. I can now connect the 6SE to Sky Safari on my iPad for a really good go-to experience
  15. Thanks for posting, but Link comes up with 'This bundle is private'
