  1. On holiday. We're only a couple of hours drive away so try to get to Langdale at least 5-6 times a years.
  2. I do miss those cold dark nights. I only started astrophotography last year with my a6000 and a samyang 12mm lens but loved the results. Bought a scope this year mainly for my wife, but for me too. Waiting for those dark nights as sadly our jobs don't allow mega late stayups. Got some amazing results in Langdale this year (amazing to us , but, probably not to you more experienced guys)

    We had milk in small glass bottles at school in the 70's. Was always warm and had cream on the top. Yes, it was vile.

    I almost replaced the diagonal on my SW Mak 127 as it was suggested it wouldn't cope well with the weight of my new TS binovioewers, but, some timely advice from Martin at FLO saved me unnecessary expense when he said it'll be just fine.

    No problem at all, Mike. A very generous act on your part.

    First light optics

    Also, a legit option. It still won't change my preference

    Again, I was very happy with my purchase from them and all communications, but, would still have loved to pick up a phone and ask a few questions.

    Indeed, it should really be about options.

    My limited dealings with FLO have been by email and the comms very good (apart from one misunderstanding which was quickly resolved), but I do so wish they had a telephone number. I prefer voice contact for questions and conversation.

    If Shane doesn't take you up on these, we're nearby to you and can collect this weekend. Also happy to make a donation to a charity of your choosing.

    Noob, What Scope ??

    Based on the sound advice and help from this site, we bought the Smymax 127 AZ Gti the other week. An amazing scope and the goto is fabulous. We had it setup out of the box and seeking within minutes. There is a fab youtube vid about them if you like. It's on my previous thread here or if you search astronomy and nature centre on youtube it's there. I also got a simple adaptor that allows my Sony A6000 to fit directly onto the scope.

    A bit late but..

    I can play a few (keyboard, most things with strings, drums) but I'm a lead guitarist mainly.

    Ok...Order finally put in. After the advice from so many of you and from the chap on the CN forum, I've ordered the TS Optics pair and a pair of TS Optics Ultra Wide 20mm ep. Many thanks again for your help. Now, to decide if I need to upgrade my diagonal!

    A bit late but..

    Although I've been a member for a few weeks, I thought I'd take the time to say "hello". My name is Paul and my username is actually a reference to my old stagename when I was a professional musician, although probably still quite apt when I was asking questions here! I currently live in Yorkshire and have been doing some amateur astrophotography for the last year, before taking the plunge to combine this and my wife's love of Astronomy. Thanks all for your help so far, and we're enjoying it so far!

    By the time my registration to ABS was approved he'd sold them! Ah well, back to choice A and B
