  1. Thanks, the one I meant is https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3613101 Which is pretty much like the one you posted.
  2. Or print your own and fill it with lead shot or sand. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3237564
  3. If you have a 3d printer (or know someone who does) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1232862 or this (which I think is better) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1232862
  4. Personally I would go with http://skywatcher.com/product/bk-mak-102-azgt/ or https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/skywatcher-skymax-102-az-gti-wifi-telescope.html Both are motorized go-to scopes and will have the least amount of frustration. I think the biggest problem will be finding these in stock.
  5. I've found this to be an excellent resource. The Backyard Astronomer's Guide Hardcover – Sept. 12 2008 by Terence Dickinson, Alan Dyer
  6. Looks to be milliseconds since Jan 1, 1970. If this helps (from google) In python import datetime readable = datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(1603194392).isoformat() print(readable) # 2020-10-20T13:46:32+02:00
  7. On android I use Mobile Observatory pro. Does what I want and has notifications with events for 7 days. Also does aton of other stuff too.
  8. The best option would be if you had the stl file for the part (or the gcode), then it would be no problem to get it printed. Failing that, all the dimensions would be needed so that it could be made up in a 3d design program and then the stl code generated could be turned into gcade for a 3d printer.
  9. Pretty much that's it. Move the camera on the ball joint without moving the Star Adventurer. Just remember to turn on the SA.
  10. My only suggestion is to try to get a model with a flip out screen.
  11. Maybe in ABS or nylon. PLA with 100% fill "might" be OK. I don't think PLA would stand up, but I'd love to be proved wrong.
  12. Of course, why stop at only 2. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3073150
  13. This mignt be close to what you want. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2496996
  14. I use astrotortilla. Seems to work OK as it downloads the relevant datafiles. Just make sure you download them before you go.
