  1. Hello, it's been about 10 years but I've dusted off my scope and its time to start again.
  2. Here you go, a guide to collimnation plus plenty of advice, tips etc reference EQ% and 200P. Astro-Baby Telescope Help Collimnation guide is here. Astro Babys Guide to Collimation Enjoy your scope. :D
  3. That'll be nuclear then, something most of us realised a long time ago. All these green re-newables aren't much better than an expensive gizmo, they're just not reliable enough. I read in (I think it was) New Scientist that these tidal boom things actually cause such devestation to the estuaries where they plan putting them that they aren't considered viable.
  4. I think we can safely say that the guy in the video isn't the best. i think the moral here is not to believe everything you see on u-tube, but hell, if it works for him, who am I to critiscise
  5. Reading between the lines on this thread, I think 16" is about to 'become' possible The 'skies the limit' (groan)
  6. Don't thank me, thank Astro Baby. AB is responsible for me buying the 38mm Panaview and, it is the mutts nuts with the 200P
  7. As above, I'm going to keep watching this thread, I'm watching this space Michael, on the edge of my seat - good luck
  8. Yup, here you go, 200P on an EQ5 tube ring mod Rotating Rings for Reflector Telescopes There's loads of 200P eq5 stuff on the AB site. http://www.astro-baby.com/astro_baby_DIY_astronomy_articles.htm
  9. Brilliant, everyone has their own tried and trusted methods - it's a bit like making home brew isn't it. "Let it ferment for a week then p#@@ in it, that's what gives Ye Olde ****** it's unique flavour"
  10. Councilor Obi Wan Kenobi, head of planning?
  11. Yeah Rob, I can see the "feelgood value" of it, but, I just love taking the mick out of stuff like this. Not meaning to give anyone a hard time. If it's any consolation, my favourite targets are the young lads who work for me, they've all got apple laptops that they can't work. :D:D trust me, hours of cynical jokes, so much time on me hands with nothing better to do LOL
  12. Do you think that I could buy an "estate" on the moon and then use that address for driving violations.
  13. Deluxe Name A Star Package (Framed) Delivery UK wide £30
  14. Seems so :D:D Not with standing the regular pleas I get from General Ombongo of Nigeria who wants me to help release $10,000,000 from an undisclosed bank account. Oooops, he did ask me to to keep this transaction confidential. Think I'll send him me mates details, he needs the money.
  15. As they say "fools and their money are easily parted" Although I'm sure the missus would tell you that Uranus was named after me :D never paid for it though, it was 'onorary
