  1. Gorgeously clear as usual in Turkey, not much colour in the shadow, interesting all the same.
  2. Admirable and dedicated, if not a little nuts
  3. Not just me then , having checked again it's finally here - not a good likeness though!!
  4. Obviously everyone is out watching the comet for real at the moment but how long does it take for starry night to be updated to show the comet ?? Does anyone know?
  5. The light from Hertfordshire is a bad influence on Turkish skies. 8) 71.1 % ... result!
  6. Hilarious- put it on Ebay
  7. It looks good, though I imagine following your post there will be a large queue of users tonight!

    Prasadka, I use a scope similar to your although a little bit bigger, these objects are difficult to see but possible. One thing you might try (if you already haven't) is to make use of the spiral search facility. Via the key pad select an object and press goto as normal. After it has beeped press the goto button again and the system will start an automatic search look carefully while it is doing this and you might see some of the objects you are looking for pop into the field of view.
  9. Huge taxes here too (more than the UK) but the price difference still makes it worthwhile.
  10. The dollar is really knackered at present (the lowest against the pound for a long time) so what do people recommend buying from the states ??
  11. That's why it was a tad cooler today then?
  12. I love this hobby as it often seems I'm doing something for the first time. Tonight it was two planets (Venus and Saturn) in the same EP. Unfortunately the afocal photos were rubbish but the memory is there.
