  1. Got a fishing chair but I only go fishing for galaxies. It is the perfect height for my DOB. I have to say that the designers of the SW 8 inch collapsible DOB have judged the position of the focuser perfectly for both low and zenith viewing. Just have to crouch a little and stretch a little. Good for my back.
  2. I took my young son to Cornwall then. A long train journey from Sussex across to the west country hefting our tent, sleeping bags, cooker etc. We set up in a camp site on the coast and I remember we lay in our tent ,heads poking out at the sky and were able to see a wonderful display of the Perseid's the night before. I was hopeful, but alas dawn came with wall-to-wall clouds and the only enjoyment we had were the seagulls going crazy at totality. Now I am here in upstate New York waiting for the 2024 eclipse and hope for better. We'll see.
  3. Just goes to show there is nothing new in this world.
  4. Could this be a battery question? I know nothing of this controller but batteries/supply is always the first place to look in any electronic situation.
  5. New member just joining and how are you all? I am a member of three other forums but thought I would expand my knowledge base even further and have a different outlook from a UK based site. I am a mid level astrophotogapher , a Brit albeit located in upstate New York. I run an ED 80 mm on AVX mount but do visual with a 200 mm DOB and CR 6 refractor. Already enjoying the posts here and hope to contribute my own soon.
