    Hi stargazers, i have been a member now for a couple of years but rarely sign in as my arthritis prevents me from typing (my partner is typing now, Hi All ), however rarely does a problem come up that someone has not allready experienced and can not be solved by just searching the threads, (many thanks for that by the way).

    So i rarley post and would like to sell a scope, however i need to amass 250 posts to be able to do so. With my joints the way they are it would be difficult to say the least to do this. (and i my brain only holds 249 interesting things to talk about anyway)

    Could anyone here point me in the direction of somebody who could help me please?

    Many Thanks Guys

    John/Tracey

  2. Stunning shots, looks close too, also looks like "war of the worlds" i`d be in awe as i ran away :)

    My partner and i keep talking about going somewhere completely dark. Somehow the damn house wins everytime! It can fall apart this year.. i care not :smiley:

    great pics, you posting more?

    jon

  3. I`m sure i read on the forum that the moon drops down around 00.15, should make for better veiwing if so.

    (best check first, i`ve been known to be wrong in the past.... or so my partner tells me :smiley:)

  4. Morning Alan, sorry to here the skies are not on your side today. I think that the eclipse will be filmed and shown tonight on bbc 2, 8 o clock. You still have a shot at the meteor showers tonight and tommorrow i think... good luck and i hope the skies are clear for you

  5. Morning people, just ot mself out of bed praying for a clear sky to catch some veiwing and prepare for the partial eclipse of our Sun. Happy to say the clouds over Hereford appear to be parting, just keeping fingers crossed they keep going!

    Good luck to you if you`ve just managed to drag yourself out of a warm bed to observe, it wasn`t easy at least not for me, leaving my georgeous wife to look at a wonderous event! close call, however i reasond that my wife would be there still later as ive tol myself a few times now :eek:

  6. Could anyone shed any light on this for me please? I would like to try a quich go at imagine without having to invest a huge amount of money, just want to dip my toe in and see if its for me really. Firstly have i picked a realistic target (Orion Nebula)? Most importantly though, what will i need? Am i right to assume the aperture on the camera needs to be fully open constantly while tracking the nebula to attract the colour we see in the amazing pics we see from people on this forum? I had a very old camera where i could adjust the aperture manualy, would this do? also is a special kind of film needed? I`m sure ive left out more important questions so would be gratfull to anyone who felt they could help in any way,

    thanks in advance for any help offered,

    john

  7. Could anyone suggest a reliable weather forcast site? My local weather (i get off the BBC website) has been consistently wrong. It has forcast rain for four days solid and its been stunning weather. Ive lost a weekend of viewing as ive been unable to plan ahead! i`m sure some guy looks out of the window in the morning and makes it up on the spot.

    thanks in advance guys

    john

  8. But what if the one night in twenty years that it is my turn to use it is cloudy??

    ;) it looks tall enough to poke through the clouds....:)

    seriously though, where do you put your ep`s? surely not the usual place? ....i`ve a healthy fear of hieghts
