  1. UKHD is a great site, I have it on my phone and have filters for my required interests, I get a notifcation when anything is listed thats matches. Excellent for discounted PC hardware etc. You got a good deal!
  2. I had a 130p on a small eq mount a few years ago, went on to buy an EQ5 ( same reasons as you) and used the 130p on that until i then upgraded to a 200p. Did it step by step.
  3. SPC's were great bits of kit. I bought 5 of them when Morgans had them for about 6-7£ a piece, these where 800's i believe that I flashed, going back a few years here.. Ok thanks for the advice and will check out the above
  4. After a few years "out of the game" so to speak I have just resparked my interest ( isnt divorce wonderful!) BUT it seems the days of buying a SPC900 for less than a tenner are gone! What are the webcams to look out for these days? I really miss the basic imaging I was able to do with my old 200p and having picked another small scope today am keen to get back into the swing of things. Please recommend
  5. The only reason I can think of is as S@N is often used as a program "filler" for the early hours of the morning on BBC 1,2,3&4, it gives the BBC more choice of programs to show. IE say you have 40 min program on BBC4 @ 03:00 a twenty min S@N would slot in nicely to fill the whole hour. A little like playing Tetris but one program having two shapes! Having said that I cant understand why they would have the first showing as a cut down version??
  6. Yep, 80% sure Iplayer has the 30min version but maybe only when that version has aired...
  7. Indeed that time again, but I wait for the extended version as the first showing is normally the cut down 20 min job.
  8. Glad you got it sorted. I have used Interparcel many times with their "UPS" service which was always very cheap. Quotes from UPS directly worked out many times more! Athough I'm sure that UPS dropped Interparcel some time ago? Havent seen them offer a UPS service the last few times I checked.
  9. I have a Carlex jumpstarter which I have had for a few years dispite having no mains charger for it I dug it out last week in the hope to use it to power my EQ5 once I source a charger. Sadly I wish I had sourced one last week as we had planned a day out today and.... I have a flat battery on the car!! Does anyone own one of these? If so can someone tell me the voltage and polarity of the charger? Failing that, how can find I find out the V+P? Theres nothing on the unit itself.

  11. I do see Suffolk on the list, but my house backs onto a 60 mph roundabout so not much hope of those going off
  12. Not mine - 14" LX200 GPS Of my own - 5" Reflector
