    Hello from SW England

    Welcome aboard Earth Demon
  2. There are plenty of more powerful sbc's than the Pi3 the main things also needed are at least 2xUSB3.1 Gen 2 & GB Network personally I would also want 2xSATA3 for Storage. Was hoping for the Odroid-N1 bit that was canceled due to problems obtaining ram guess the Odroid-N2 due September ish.
  3. Has a Pi really got enough grunt for doing all this ? @£170-180 seems a lot for a Pi The LattePanda Delta 432 is due next month and seems much more appropriate it costs c£150 with windows 10 pre-activated. Microsoft has Remote Desktop on Android so you can control if from your phone you can also use all your favorite windows software. LattePanda runs on 12V like other AstroStuff supports USB3, SATA NVMe SSD, has a built in Arduino so you can get a GPS up and running for an extra £5 plus any other Android type stuff(look in DIY for focuser's...). Perhaps I'm missing something?

    Hi All

    Welcome aboard Spaceade. Nice Image.
  5. Seems Like a bit of a missed opportunity adding some information from telescopes to the Field of View Calculator why not create a database of all the specs into a database then just pull out the information needed for use on any of the calculators It would also make a great reference for OTA's, Eyepiece's, Mounts...
  6. Me to technically they did away with the County of Bristol to form Avon then did away with Avon. so I guess we go back to how it was anyone south of the river is is North Somerset everyone North of the river is South Gloucestershire. Personally I think we should reform the Republic of Bristol and be done with the politics in London.
  7. Space I'm not letting out any secrets you cant catch me out that easily. LOL
  8. I'm still not convinced the universe wasn't brought into existence from the collapse of a black hole they can only get so big before something freaky happens 2+ trillion galaxies worth of mass in one place that's a lot of gravity eventually something has to give.
  9. Hi Peeps Planning on getting back into Astro imaging. Have been away from it for some years things seem to have changed somewhat cameras have no ware to put the film anymore I originally built a clockwork tracker back in the early 80's polar alignment was somewhat difficult to say the least but did get it right on occasion. I have an old Losmandy GM100 mount & am planning on updating it to a full go to system with encoders. I have had a couple of visits to BAS & am planning on becoming a member.
