  2. I love my 10'' Dob in fact i'm out in my obby now cleaning messing around with it just getting it ready for when we do get some stars. Good luck and happy viewing
  3. Looking for help ,Can a hotec collimator go out of colimation, we've not had clear nights in N I for a while so i thought, good chance to clean up the scope and other bits, i have a celestron collimation eyepiece so i tried it in the scope and the collimation was well out so i put a col cap in and set about colimation useing the cap as well as the col eyepiece and got it well lined up but when i put the Hotec in it was badly out so im thinking my Hotec is out of line, if so does anyone know where i could send it to to get it reset:icon_scratch:
  4. laserpen.co.uk Thats where i got mine Very helpful and free next day delivery
  5. Merry Xmas to all you stargazers and a happy new year, From Rob in Crossgar N Ireland , Looking forward to clear nights and great chat in 2012.
  6. I to have cooling fan's on both my scope 10"dob and 6" Tal and they are worth having. Both fans are 4" and they clear any haze mist of in a few min's, vibration no prob's
  7. Here in N Ireland 40 mile per hour winds from the south, rain all day Just checked my weather station strongest gust today was 46mph @ 4.35 wind seams to be dropping as the last gust was 25.1 mph don't think i'll see many stars tonight ( thank goodness for SGL )
  8. Just wonder what the optics are like in it, hope they haven't let the optics go just to make the starsense techology be the main selling point, After all its the scope that you look through not where it can point.
  9. Take her outside point at the supernova in M101 and shout mummy
  10. Hi All, Has anyone seen or tried the new Sky prodigy and if so what do you think any feedback:icon_eek:
  11. I always get mine around the 15th 17th of each month and in four years never had any props yet i live in N Ireland.
  12. The mount looks very like a Tal mount cut down and mounted on a boggie looks very good.
  13. The only voice i hear is the enemy hanging out the bedroom window shouting don't you wake me up when you come to bed
  14. We'll have clouds for days now that you've got a new scope Welcome back
