  1. Skysafari on an iPad with its 10" screen, wireless to the mount has got to be the best and easiest way for novices. Very simple and intuitive... like a point and shoot camera,
  2. As long as we all make sure to get some content on there quickly it should be great. Rusty strings should start a homebuild section off with detailed instructions/plans (and labour charges ) for his dob base.
  3. Great night. Good food and good company.
  4. Not long now to turkey...and typical skys clear over holbrook
  5. Bobs Knobs for the 200p primary (slightly concerned that the metal plate on the back now doesn't fit...time to get busy with the dremmel)
  6. Done, with sensible comments... trying not to sound like a normal person rather than an Eco-warrior, criminal or one of those astronomy weirdos
  7. Great night. Big thanks to Brantuk for letting me use his Altair (great piece of kit!) and yes I was very impressed by the alignment! Going to give that a try, its a lot faster than polar scopes etc! Thanks to everyone, I think I managed to see more on Sat night than I did the whole of last year...Comet, Doubles, GRS, messiers x 10 (Inc M13 or as it is now know "just a blob" Nice to check out some of the Dobs there, Martyns 300 flex tube is a perfect size to use and Johns homemade mount for the 200p is a work of art!
  8. John, you could always do a talk on your homemade dob mount for the 200p
  9. There was a 15 seconds piece on the local news yesterday, about how derbyshire is thinking about dimming etc to save money... fingers crossed...
  10. Just got this for my iPad...it's very well done and has a lot of info. Time will tell if it's accurate.
  11. Fantastic...thanks (and let us know when they are in )
  12. Welcome to the forum. Some good advice from Baz senior too
