  1. Definately going, probably the easiest venue to get to that there is, imo.
  2. I find one of these puts the target star almost central once you get used to any parallax. https://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p7892_TS-Optics-RDAC-LED-Red-Dot-Finder-for-astronomy-and-daytime-observation.html There's several different manufacturers with a range of build quality.
  3. Very nice indeed. I must admit to being tempted by Solar given the current nightly cloud cover. What bandwidth are you achieving there out of interest?
  4. If you use 'Stellarium' and configure the 'Oculars' tool this will give you an excellent idea of what you can see and frame with your 700D. M45 is certainly a good choice it should frame quite nicely. M31 seems to mostly fit as well.
  5. These light pollution maps are quite useful https://blue-marble.de/nightlights/
  6. Border Force may stll carry out selective checks which could delay delivery. Parcels do not flow freely into the UK with no physical checks, for reasons other than vat/duty some are checked. I usually receive my TS orders in 2 days from shipment notifcation, sometimes 1 ! but it has taken up to 5 days in the past.
  7. Startech does have usb over ethernet (gigabit) extenders but they are very expensive. (the ip versions have to be on the same subnet) https://www.startech.com/uk/USB?c_filter=USB-Extenders
  8. Looks nice. Thats a good choice of Hub, I put the same one into a homemade powertank a couple of years ago and its worked flawlessly. A pity StarTech don't do a flush mount version, would make the cabling easier.
