  1. The Magellanic Clouds, also iconic, (almost) SH only objects.
  2. Nice image. It may just be my phone screen but could it benefit from knocking the green back a few points?
  3. Welcome back John. It’s wonderful to have something to help get you through these difficult times, and at last, the time to do it. Enjoy yourself.
  4. I don't see any beer Glad they're home safe.
  5. I’m having a fine day without having to look at photos of you filling your face Dave. ?
  6. Sod the rain, life is too short. So Clan Foster will be there early afternoon tomorrow. Holding Jupiter and lobbing paper at other astronomers is enough to keep me entertained ?
  7. Satellite probably. Take a look at heavens above or calsky.
  8. I don’t know. But I will say this, it was him or me. ?
  9. Amazing, even more amazing to think that it will take c. 70000 years for Voyager to reach our nearest stellar neighbour. I wonder if any passing travellers will intercept it on the way?
  10. An outstanding image, all the more impressive for being manually stitched!!!
  11. This is a fabulous build James, I don't know how I've missed it until now.
  12. And 3 pairs of underpants.
  13. I’ll wear long sleeves to cover the scars from mine last year. I’ve almost recovered mentally tho!
  14. It clearly is, on the basis that you managed to keep it all in one place on the image, so to speak. I clearly did not. Tom's on the other hand are marvellous, good to know it can be done manually, I'll have another go soon.
  15. Stu, you're going to have a great time. Enjoy it.
  16. The sw130 does have the stop. Put your end cap on the telescope, remove the little cap from the middle of the main cap and bobs your uncle, your F5 scope is now F12 or there abouts. Obviously with the smaller aperture you lose some resolution but there’s a good compromise to be had when observing the brighter lunar phases.
