    I just thought that the milk might have been a bit sour or something.

    How's your weather.

    20 degrees, windy and dry in Coventry. Great for washing

    Opticron and Astromedia weren't there. I was going to get a few kids pressies from Astromedia as they sell great educational science projects that can get kids exited and involved in. Never mind eh. Got the filter I wanted, the astronomik UHC E 1.25.

    Absolutely it's a bit small this year. Some of the listed stands weren't there. Wanted to speak to Opticron, but no sign. Maybe it's the weather. Rother Valley were just so fabulously helpful. Did anyone notice that the coffee (a latte) tasted a bit off?

    Back from IAS now. Had a good chat with the Coventry Astro society so think i'll go along for a meet tonight. Found the filter i wanted at a good price from Rother Valley too. Phew the weather is blowy today.
  6. HI FLO. Have sent you an email this arvo. Don't panic. Enjoy the Star Party. Been to the IAS today. Was going to ask Opticron about my binos but they weren't there....sniff sniff...
  7. Can they be collimated at home? They are porro prism i think.
  8. Im not sure what do with my Opticron Adventurer 8 x 42 binos. I was very happy with these when i got them in Feb from FLO. But now i'm seeing double stars all the time. At first i thought it was my eyes, but the next night was the same. I haven't dropped or knocked them. For daylight use they seem fine. It's only at night when they show up an error. Tim

    Seems to be fast enough for me. Up and down a bit.

    Saw some very serious huge mounts on display last year. OMG so big they were. Way out of my league for grab and go. Still fascinating to look at and in shiny colors too Hope the chocolate stand is there too this year.

    Seen the floor plan missing too. Still, there will be plenty to see I reckon and all the talks too. A coffee and lunch place help to consider things before make sudden purchases

    AZGTI stiff

    Hi. Just looked at the CN link and the pictures were there. Those are the pictures and instructions I used to dismantle my azgti. The plastic washer is still working well. My picture is a bit blurry I'm afraid but the washer (cut out with scissors) was so simple to do and I had nothing to lose. Make sure you have a full set of Allen keys and plenty of time.

    Yep. Going on the Friday. 10am for the Onion talk I think then a browse at astro kit and a coffee. Love the astromedia stuff and space rocks for Christmas shopping. Big wad of cash too .
  14. The AZGTI can be used also as a manual AZ mount if your batteries go flat or you want to swing it around any time it remembers where you are.

    AZGTI stiff

    Me too. All nicely adjusted till I tighten the grubs(for the umpth) time then back to the stiffness each time. Haven't any locktite so thought I'd try some more grease and a washer. All smooth now and more adjustable.
