    Hello again

    Hello all First time back on the site for years Have had bad issues with my eyes with retinal detachment and then cataracts so stopped observing for a long time Had the cataract in my left eye removed just before Xmas and my wife bought me some binoculars as I now have one good eye! Even hope to get the old telescope out again soon!
  2. I have not been around for a couple of years due to life and such also have had a detached retina in my right eye which has made observing a bit difficult Started lurking again a few weeks ago and have decided to "step into the light" again
  3. I remember that artillery piece -I mean -16 inch dob too at SGL5 Wonderful....
  4. Could leave Brian out for me....
  5. What about these? Winter Boots Footwear Hiking WEASY boots
  6. I have both the Celestron 130 and the Skywatcher 130 The mount is better on the Celestron but the tripod is better on the Skywatcher! There is little to choose visually between the two, but cosmetically the Skywatcher just edges it The RDF on either is rubbish but a Rigel Quikfinder sorts that problem out....
  7. about the same....although I did put up with the hurricane to look at the M101 SN last night
  8. NO....Three times NO! Never look at the Sun directly!!!! It is for looking at full moons (but a filter works better)
  9. I saw this at NASA visitor centre in Florida in May Is wonderful!!
  10. I have a couple of these....a bargain I think
  11. Forecast is clear for tonight so maybe....just maybe?
