  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. 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.
  8. Welcome to SGL Alan. Have fun! Jeff.
  9. Beautiful image Baz, Nice one mate! Jeff.

    Noob here

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Jeff.
  11. 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.
  12. Lovely scope, all you need now is a few clear nights. Jeff.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. My condolences to Neils family. Jeff.
  16. Great image Baz, well worth the effort mate. Jeff.
  17. If you are brave enough to attempt this.. be extremely careful, as i was reading a post on Cloudy Nights the other day, were all didn't go quite to plan for some poor chap. The end result was a broken corrector plate (expensive), he evidently forgot to lock the dec axis or something, momentary turned his back and wallop. Jeff.
  18. Being the div that i am, i suppose I'd better ask 36"? Jeff.
  19. So I'ts not "Chile" enough there then peter, so nothing to do with twins then Nick? Jeff.
  20. Thanks for the clarity on this lads, now i can understand it a little easier. You see i know how Silver Halide works in a neg, and that's what was throwing me thinking them the same as data, as 10 negs all with just 10% exposure supposibly stacked would still only give you a 10% resolve. :) Complicated!! Cheers. Jeff.
  21. If i want to image a subject that say needs a 10 min exposure with a ccd imager to fully resolve, but for arguments sake i have to take in 10x1 min exposures (passing jumbo jets etc), or 2,3, min or even longer but below ten Min's. How then when i stack them can it make a fully resolved image when none of the original exposures contain the full luminosity of the true image? if you get my meaning. Does this mean that any image made up of an underexposed stack is technically a lie because the rest is made up by tweaking, This puzzles me!! Please don't all give me an ear bashing at the same time, and remember you'll probably get banned for swearing on the forum. Jeff.
  22. First go at this, i'ts a bit on the small side, 12"LX90, F10, Meade DSI. Jeff.
