  3. Neat stuff. If this is the quickie... what can go into the extended version. Again you have set the bar just a little higher for me... Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for the first light review. I'm not really a pixel and corner guy... more a WOW that is a totally brilliant pic off a first light run, type of guy. Do you prefer a Red Dot Finder (RDF) above lens based finders? For me I'm afraid the RDF is a bit of a waste of time and have lately been using the star finder off the android. I use SkEye what do you think? Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks Fozz... very informative. .. I've the same :mad experience with my celestron eq mount. But will look to the ball and pan solution at my next visit to Amazon (grin) Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk

  7. I think this pic is great reward for tons of of patient labour. You are setting a great standard for us amateurs... If i could double like this post i would!Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk
  8. Oh dear, budget has kept me immune to the image bug for the moment. Following your project with great interest.Thanks for the reply rich Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk
  9. The best... the 2015 sky guide to afrca south published by astronomical society of south africa And that book by patrick moore: a to z of astronomy the 1975 ed. It cost me 7rand (about 50c in Uk terms). As a pocket guide it alone has been worth a ton of gold Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk
  10. Nice project. .. one of the reasons i choose astronomy as a hobby was it didn't require heavy lifting. Well that's when i only had a 10x80 pair of binocs, then apperture fever struck!Now my friends in SGL have given me a dose of OBSY what is the goal of the obsy? Just to keep equipment and you from elements? What is size of scope planned for 2.4mx2.4 When considering a diy obsy... but how much clearance and walk space do u plan Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk

  12. Nice stuff man! Like the last pic real caotures depth of view. Sent from my SM-A500F using Tapatalk
  13. Great in memorium thanks guys! I'm new in telescope world and these heros and leave great milestones. One easily forgets the giants whose shoulders we so easily stand to admire the new horizons that never saw. Mr Sinden certainly sounded like a giant in our time and a real gentleman too.
