  1. Hi, What you need is a car body work former (Dollie) as some have curved bits that will match the diameter of the bracket, Place the former in a vice then place the bracket on top and whack it into shape with a rubber hammer, if you cover the former with cloth it probably won't even damage the paintwork of the bracket. http://www.frost.co....ork/dollie.html jeff.
  2. Plumbers / sparks use hole cutters, if i'm not mistaken 35mm is a standard size, but i'd only use a good quality make and NOT the springy steel sets you see in the junk shops, the ones i'm talking about are solid blade type where they have to be used with an arbour, they work very well but practice on some waste material first if you use this option, try screwfix. Have Fun.
  3. And to think i thought SGL was about sharing everyone's point of view!! Obviously made no friends here, so i'll think i'll get my coat. BY. Jeff.
  4. Great setup Mike, i see you have plenty to play with. Thanks for the insight. Jeff.
  5. I see the threads still going then. Jeff.
  6. Alright!! point taken TJ, i just always assumed POW was for astro images only. Besides i'm running out of plasters. Jeff.
  7. It's a lovely hat. Jeff.
  8. I would like to point out, that almost any camera pointed at the night sky is capable of achieving a good image, guided, scope, or whatever, so this is not about what equipment one is using. I've been a member of SGL since Nov 2006, and i have to say i've never yet seen this type of pic win once prior to this. That's my point!! it's nothing to do with equipment. Jeff.
  9. Welcome to SGL Alan. Have fun! Jeff.
  10. Beautiful image Baz, Nice one mate! Jeff.

    Noob here

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Jeff.
  12. I've not seen this POW until today, so i was a little late with my comments, yes about a week!! Ole well!! One mans meat, as the saying goes. Jeff.
  13. Lovely scope, all you need now is a few clear nights. Jeff.
  14. Whilst i know it's not easy to pick an image week after week for POW, i'm sorry to say i honestly can't see why that choice was made this weeks winner rather than the norm. Yes it's a nice photo that depicts the moment as TJ implies, but it has nothing to do with the hard graft that people put into resolving astro images. What next week one wonders? Lulu's hat!! If this is going to be the case in future then maybe this is a call for two categories as this where this seems to be going. Just my opinion! Cheers all. Jeff.
  15. Then it may be better remove the ota from the mount and work with it on your bed just in case, i know i would.Just a thought!!. Jeff.
