  1. More on the way according to the weather forecast wind gust of 50 mph tomorrow need to decide weather to stay or pack up and go in the morning ???
  2. Hello from Kelling clear night last night last night until about 12.30 spent most of that exploring the veil nebula
  3. I will be there on red 358 Thursday until Sunday you never now we might get a clear night or two ???
  4. Giro mini on a Meade giant tripod can duel mount a 120 frac and an Orion 8 inch reflector (but not a skywatcher way to heavy) at the same time very solid picture of mount with both scopes attached total weight 13 kg I have observed with this set op and it works fine even at 5 kg over max load of 8 kg.

  6. Broken cloud hear just been out testing my lightbridge replacement , set up works quite well some nice views of Saturn and Jupiter through the frac and the ring neb through the orion newtonian , the Orion newt is perfect for this set up due to its low weight half that of an 8 inch skywatcher newt. Sorry about the rubbish picture but it was dark
  7. The way I see it is this if you observe when you want to and not because you feel you have to you. / I will enjoy the observing that you do more as you have a more relaxed frame of mind observing when you want to and. Not through some obligation as you may have other priorities
  8. Clear skies hear to which is a bit of a supprise as it has rained all day , managed a.couple of hours observing first for a while still clear out but time for bed Mike
  9. I was at mevagisy in Cornwall and saw all but first contact , as the eclipse started we had wall to wall cloud which Parted after first contact allowing us to observe the full eclipse very lucky really as 10 miles either way they had wall cloud and rain Mike
  10. Would you consider posting to Bl0 9st ?
