  1. Loads of items for sale

    Pm sent re Pentax Zoom eyepiece 6.mm to 19.5mm
  2. I posted this in the widefield section, it never occurred to me that it would be eligible for the Lunar category The 1% illuminated moon just creeping through the murky horizon, reminded me of something from a Sci-fi movie with the lights below! Taken with a Canon 450d + 200mm lens.

  5. Observing Hood

    Excellent service from the suppliers in Russia! Mine arrive on Wednesday as well, not tested it with the scope yet though. It has very good light blocking properties, I tried in the house and can hardly see a 60w bulb through it. The material looks a good quality as well, plenty big enough, just got to wait until the 25th of next month before I officially receive it

    3 years already! the time really does fly, one minute your gearing up for the long dark winter nights, next its spring and you missed most of them!
  7. November 17, 2017: Some WL and Ca-K disks (plus a surprise appearance)

    Nice set of images.

    Lovely prom and filament, completely missed out again this weekend.
  11. Dawn planets - and moon!

    I managed a few decent images between the clouds.
  12. Well it was a bit disappointing to be honest. I only saw about half a dozen in around 90 minutes, a couple were pretty bright and superfast though!
  13. The trio had finally cleared all the clouds by the time work called!
  14. The 1% illuminated moon just creeping through the murky horizon, reminded me of something from a Sci-fi movie with the lights below! Not as widefield as the previous image, but I liked the look of it.
