  1. Is that a scratch?. Looks a bit dirty. Probably needs a clean
  2. I'd be more concerned about all the veggies down your scope.
  3. @John would in my mind be ideal. There are others also.
  4. Zoom in and you can see flashing lights. Aircraft I'm sure. Cant say what streak at end is.
  5. The 70's called. They want their belt back.
  6. Sounds like military aircraft on night manoeuvre, releasing flares.
  7. I've bought stuff from there. Never had any complaints. I bought a Hershel wedge, filters. Few other bits.
  8. Disney (JJ Abrams) have not done a bad job of the last two movies. Looking forward to this final installment.
  9. Not strictly astro related, but I got this delivered yesterday. I didn't even know it was released yet. *EDIT* Watched it today. Have to say i didnt like it.
  10. You did have the Xs and liked it. I dont find CA a problem with the scope. It's there, but minimal.
  11. Ahhh ok. The focal length of the Xs is 460mm. The S is 600. Had too look it up to remind myself. I thought the Xs was 600mm. My bad.
  12. They do tend to multiply like rabbits.
  13. Is this the same as the AR 102XS?. I bought one a couple of years ago. I use it in conjunction with my Quark Solar filter. Love it. Really nice build quality. The smoothness of the focused is excellent.
  14. When you're done with your neighbours, can you send them round to me.
  15. You could say it all went downhill from there.
  16. That's like half way up Mt. Everest. GASP!!!!!!.
  17. Myself and Lorna recently bought this between us. We bought it in the local PCWorld. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-Touchscreen-1920x1080-Business/dp/B07LCSD4CD/ref=asc_df_B07LCSD4CD/?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=&hvpos=&hvnetw=o&hvrand=&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583726547684139&th=1 Its brilliant for what we need it for.We paid about 660 euros. The next model up (essentially the same specs was about 900 euros).
  18. That's it exactly. She had a perfect voice for presenting tv shows. Tony Robinson has that same quality. I could watch anything they present. Pete Lawrence is another. Dr. Alice Roberts too.
  19. Heather on S@N back in the day is the reason I took up astronomy. RIP
  20. Lovely and clear here tonight, but its freezing and there were still strong gusts at about 8pm.
  21. Always seated for me (wheelchair). There's good medical reasons for sitting. No neck or back issues and the muscles in the eyes are relaxed, which improves view.
  22. This is the website of Tom o D. He is a brilliant astro photographer. He does a lot of it in France with Olly in Les Grange. Www.astrophotography.ie
  23. A thread about Vixen, and no mention of the NPL range. I do love vixen EPs.
