  1. Sounds like I aren't missing much... hope it clears up for you guys laterer
  2. Peak Star Party 2012 on Sky at Night this month where yours truly gets a look in... http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01fy429
  3. Cool, domes is the way to go if you can, mine is now so cosy I could sleep in it between the gaps in the clouds....
  4. Alas, work commitment means I cannot attend this years bash. If anyone would care to take over a 'tent with EHU' pitch, please feel free to PM me... YM
  5. I saw Panstarrs for the first time in the early hours. Subsequently I have watched it traverse across the northern sky. As it climbs higher it will be easier to follow through the night.
  6. Maybe something like this: But really, you won't know until you try....
  7. I'm hoping for a clear moroning to catch the crescent moon joining in on the spectacle.
  8. 'Bo-oo-tees' always gets me larfin', don't they know it's 'Booties' and don't get me started on Uranus....
  9. I meant that I was worse behaved at PSP 2012 .... and I'm nearly 50! ... but then again. I never did grow up....
  10. Generally not, except from our FPSO and our standby vessel. But the rig lights tend to prevent ones eyes properly dark adapting.
  11. Moon and Jupiter conjunction: 29 Nov 2012: South China Sea:
  12. No poxylips pics from me Tony. I opted not to bother, as we've a hectic bit of goings on at the moment. I did take some shots of the Moon and Jupiter over the sea though, hopefullt they'll be worth showing. I'll get to see them in a while...
  13. I didn't bother with the eclipse, too tired and several busy days ahead. I did take a few snaps of the Moon and Jupiter this moroning, as they started to get low in the West, I'll see how they came out laterer....
  14. The school 'kids' that attended this year were more like 'young adults'. Better behaved than yer average teenagers, that's for sure. I was probably far worse than they...
  15. One of my favourite sights, here in the tropics, is a crescent moon low in the sky, like a Cheshire Cat grin. Also, seeing the moon directly overhead is a hoot...
  16. I've been watching Saturn and Venus getting closer together over the past few days. This morning I also had Mercury show himself at last...
  17. I've been toying with such an idea, just never bothered my butt to do anything about building one. Good show Sir!
  18. I think either scope would suit a beginner. Have you looked on FLO? They have the SW 130 with motors: http://www.firstlightoptics.com/reflectors/skywatcher-explorer-130m.html Whilst not go-to, the added feature of a motorised mount allows access to web-cam imaging and with Jupiter up high during the winter months, I'm sure he'd be producing images straight off...
  19. M93 bagged around 03:00 this moroning, although I was cheating somewhat, being at 21 degrees N helps place it much higher in the sky
  20. You could try your local hardware shoppe....
  21. ^^^Ah! I'll be doing a sneaky eBanking payment laterer, as I failed to see the invisible instructions to do the 'click on the text totally unlike any other time you've bought something on the tinterweb and chosen the PayPal option' bit...
  22. Ok, whilst I couldn't proceed using a paypal payment, due to the page not progressing. I have managed to confirm using the cheque payment method, although the page still has not progressed, I now have a confirmation email. Next problem, I haven't used cheques since Noah was a roughneck, is there a direct money transfer option for us e-banking types?????
