  1. As people have said not much to change/add. Joined last month and everyone’s been extremely helpful. The forum is probably the easiest I’ve used and most active as well. I’ve also enjoyed the new Upcoming events calendar. 👍🏻
  2. 2018-03-17 - REPORT - PART 1 - THE TAURUS TRIP

    Nice report and sketch enjoyed reading it. I like the little path as well might do that on my atlas.
  3. Thank you for that. that was one of the reasons i was struggling to star hop was working out the distance between each object.
  4. Fits to tiff files

    Someone posted something similar a while ago. Not sure if this is helpful to you
  5. Thanks gert it is a great feeling. I think as I was so excited that I had found m31 I didn't really observe it properly or as long as I should have. But next session I’ll try and look at it properly.
  6. Thank you for the advice. I think I need to invest in a diary would be nice to write down what I’ve seen. Good tips about the constellations and using soft pencil thanks.
  7. Here’s a good guid for colimation http://www.astro-baby.com/collimation/astro babys collimation guide.htm hope you have fun with your new scope
  8. Thanks I’ve been really impressed with my 130p I didn’t really know what to expect but it’s been a pleasant surprise.
  9. Thanks, my sky is fairly good but still not a completely dark sky since I’ve got my scope I’ve been wanting to do a camping trip to one maybe in the near future
  10. This exactly why I was looking at the astronomik one as it would be then “ future proof” and then wouldn’t have to waste more money on getting a better one. Not sure though yet.
  11. Thanks Stu, I really do need to buy an Observing hood I am behind a hedge which shelters much of my own house light but the neighbors light creeps in and didn’t help yesterday when they came home and the car lights blinded me ! I’ll have another read up to see what I should get a OIII or UHC people seem to have told latter but will have another look.
  12. Sorry Alan, Missed the Link the first time you posted thanks again.
  13. I was looking at that one as well I guess it would be a bit stupid to spend that much first.
  14. I’m going to ask stupid question here but they go on the bottom of the eyepice right ? Do I have to un screw the barrel and then put it on?
