  1. Thanks I’ll check mine when it arrives on Monday
  2. Yes it’s still available, I bought it new about six months ago and never ever used it.
  3. This ZWO ASIAIR is brand new boxed never been used, £135 inc postage.
  4. Hi This colour camera is in absolutely mint condition only having been used twice, it comes boxed with all the leads and accessories. I'm looking for £625 including postage .
  5. Do you mean like this? I may be selling the bracket that holds the 183c camera soon as I’ve decided to go back to Atik cameras. Mel
  6. I used to have some very nice Leica ultravid 8x32's which I bought secondhand and used for about five years and sold them for almost what I paid for them. If you can afforded it good preowned optics will hold their value, I made the mistake of looking through some Swarovski 8.5 x 42 Swarovisions and then nothing else would do Mel
  7. I was using a tripod with a video head on it.
  8. I was using my Sony A7s with a canon 200mm F2.8 lens 1/15 @51,200 iso
  9. Yes, this is the third time I've managed to capture a Dragon spacecraft with RCS jets firing, we have to have a favourable ISS pass timed with the sun being not too low below the horizon so that the craft is not illuminated and most crucially of all a clear sky, I've missed a few due to bad weather. This is by far the best capture I've managed, several people have mentioned the thruster firings were easily visible in binoculars.
  10. After watching the launch for Cape Canaveral I knew CRS-18 would pass over the UK as the ISS had done an overhead pass only 30 minutes earlier, the only doubt was if the cloud cleared and it would be high enough to be illuminated by sunlight. Well it was spectacular, the RCS thrusters we’re pushing out circular plumes of glowing blue gas as the course corrections fired as the Dragon capsule, second stage and the two tumbling side shrouds passed over. If you look very carefully there are two or three pinpoints of light behind and to the left, any ideas as to what these might be? All to quickly it moved into the earths shadow and faded from view but ai was still able to track it for a short while. Mel
