  1. I've found that I need to take individual flats as I have varying degrees of banding, in particularly with my NB filters.
  2. got this video of the roof in action. I have one in each corner and that appears to be more than adequate. I'd guess that my roof is approx. 250kg (4 man lift) and the wheel system has worked very well for 2.5 years now. As they were a retro fit, some bodging was necessary lol, but well worth it!

  3. bought my wheels and track from here - http://www.rollingcenter.co.uk/sliding-gate-hardware-28.html Best RoR upgrade ever!
  4. Thanks for the elements Guy. Do you know how these parameters relate to the data entry dialog for SkyMap Pro? - see attached. Andy
  5. I use the SkyMap Pro v10 planetarium but the recommended link for downloading orbital elements for asteroids (http://www.astro.cz/mpcorb/SkyMap.CAT) no longer works for me. Anyone know an alternative that I could use?
  6. upgraded from version 3 pro to 5 pro during the last discount - well worth it
  7. My new one just arrived today as well - knew I should have placed a wanted ad!
  8. yes, very. It's a superb telescope - I'm very lucky to own one
  9. I'll own up, I've been enjoying the views of Jupiter and the Moon through my recently acquired Tak TOA-150B over the last few nights
  10. Oi! what's wrong with a yahoo email addy?
  11. oh yes!
  12. Hi Alex, I guess you mean the standard install rather than RC1? I've tried running Stellarium previously using the standard download as explained above (at least from v0.13.1) with the same problem. I was hoping that the very latest version fixed the problem. I've tried running as admin and compatibility mode options with the same result. With RC1 I get the following dialog (text extracted from dialog below) when running the Compatibility Troubleshooter I'd love to give Stellarium a try. Maybe it's down to not having the correct support files? Program Compatibility Troubleshooter Publisher details Issues found Incompatible Program Incompatible Program stellarium is incompatible.

  14. Hi Alex, yes, I tried angle and one other exe in the folder (maybe standard, can't remeber) this morning (latest RC1) with the same result. Thanks for the quick response though! Regards, Fireball
  15. Help! I've tried installing several versions of Stellarium since v0.13.1 and now this latest 0.15.2RC1. Every time I launch it, it simply crashes at the start-up splash screen.
