  1. BAA asteroid charts not updated?

    I saw your posting, goodricke1, and contacted the Computing Section Director. There was a glitch and the new data are now there. Sorry for the inconvenience Jeremy
  2. IC1396 The Elephant Trunk Nebula in HST

    Lovely pic, Dave! Jeremy
  3. Starlight Express Camera

    I use AstroArt to control my SXVF-H9. They have plug-ins to control various SX models available to download from their website.
  4. Vixen NPL 40 eyepiece

    Thanks Chris, now added price.
  5. Vixen NPL 40 eyepiece

    Vixen NPL 40mm eyepiece. End caps. Bought about 2 weeks ago, hardly used. £29.50. Price includes 1st class mail. Also advertised elsewhere
  6. There is now more information posted about this occultation on the BAA website here. It includes a track of where the event might be observed (always subject to change as the prediction gets modified). Jeremy
  7. This could be an interesting event if you are on the occultation track. More info here: https://britastro.org/node/11043 Jeremy
  8. I've had this about 2 weeks and used a few times, so in practically as new condition. Anyone care to swap? Jeremy
  9. Astronomy Binoculars

    This article has some guidance about choosing binoculars for astronomy: https://britastro.org/node/8825 Jeremy
  10. Certainly looks like it, Beulah.
  11. We've launched a page to display pictures of the eclipse by BAA members and friends taken both in the USA and at home in the UK: https://britastro.org/node/10981 We've been updating it overnight and will continue to do so during the day as new reports come in. I was delighted to see a beautiful drawing, by Paul Abel. There's also a stunning image by the world-renowned Damian Peach. Jeremy
  12. NZ 'ere I come

    I had some of my best night sky views ever from Mount Cook. Years ago I also attended a star party organised by a group from Auckland on the Bay of Plenty under some lovely skies (to which I'm always tempted to ask: "is there much there?"). Jeremy
  13. Perhaps they help to make good beer, Ian. Definitely time for a star party
  14. Good to see the project coming along, Dreek. Jeremy
  15. Having bought a Vixel NPL 40mm eyepiece earlier this week, I thought I'd better check it wasn't overloading the MightyMak on the NEQ6. Seems to be OK. Jeremy
