  1. That really is very good looking! Agree with Jiggy, would happily have those on my wall.
  2. Just carried out a sidereal test of the SW Star Adventure Pro. According to the mount, one Sidereal day is.... ... 23hrs 56min and 34s! (+- 30s for gaffer tape slippage) Very happy with that result. It also means I'm not very good at polar aligning or balancing my ED72 on it as the last night had quite a bit of slip. I blame myself.

    Diagonal for dabling

    Before you head in the loft can you give me a range of cost? Not sure how much these things cost used. “One million dollars!!”

    Hi Cleetus, preferably 2”
  6. I've a new mini-frac (SW ED72) for imaging but wouldn't mind doing a bit of light visual, so looking for a di-eletctric diagonal on the cheap. Thanks!
  7. Exactly this one but I've not actually used it yet so caveat emptor until i've actually generated some flats with it... https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07GJBF4P3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. That's so pretty! And that's just newt spider vanes causing those lovely spikes?
  9. My cheapo tracing pad flat field generator.
  10. I'm being an idiot. this foam has an "edge" of a set size that goes all around. No reason I can't do away with the edge and cut a larger block to fit. And that I shall!
  11. It seems this Lidl case is a weird size that nobody sells foam for. Might have to convert it in to another case and shell out for something more "standard" Thanks all.
  12. I can't find replacement foam for this disaster! I haven't slept in weeks.
  13. Wow these look amazing. And FLO doing their own branded premium scope is a wonderful thing!
  14. This ^^ more than anything! I did a sharp intake of breath when solar filter was mentioned.
