  2. I use a green wich cover to cover my fork mounted celestrron C11 on its tripod, covers down to about 6-8 inches from the ground. HTH colin
  3. Well done mate. I'll pass on the cake but will supply beer at the next starparty colin
  4. Yep it looks like an alien tadpole has taken up residence in my new (second hand) scope. It appears to be a blob of grease with a tail of what appears to be aluminium swarf it also appears that I have a nice collection of smaller bits of swarf also on the back of the corrector plate attached by small amounts of grease. I discovered this last night whilst trying to collimate my scope again, (several very kind people off SGL offered to collimate it at Kelling, Unfortunately I had to leave early so could not take advantage of the kind offers). My scope appeared to have less contrast than normal,
