  1. Also some good ideas here. https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/662407-denver-chair-cats-perch-chair-plans/
  2. I built one of these. Fairly easy build. http://www.denverastro.org/xdfiles/carlson/denver_chair.html
  3. I would suggest getting in touch with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada Calgary Center. They have excellent people and may even have a loaner program similar to the one we have in Canada. That way you can try before you buy. There also is an excellent telescope store in Didsbury. All-star Telescopes and I'm sure that Ken there will be more than willing to help you. Hope this helps a bit.
  4. Thanks, the one I meant is https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3613101 Which is pretty much like the one you posted.
  5. Or print your own and fill it with lead shot or sand. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3237564
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. I've found this to be an excellent resource. The Backyard Astronomer's Guide Hardcover – Sept. 12 2008 by Terence Dickinson, Alan Dyer
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Pretty much that's it. Move the camera on the ball joint without moving the Star Adventurer. Just remember to turn on the SA.
  13. My only suggestion is to try to get a model with a flip out screen.
