  1. Hi Jimmy, Did you get one? How’s it working out? I have the same scope and mount and would like to add a starsense.
  2. So, I had first (and second) light with my new BST StarGuider 8mm this week. I’m very happy with it. Draws out lovely surface detail on Mars and, last night, I’m fairly confident that I could discern the polar ice cap. First light was actually on Thursday where I took my setup to a new friend’s place. He let me try out his atmospheric dispersion corrector with it which really did yield a very sweet view. So guess what’s been added to my Xmas list!
  3. If was still cheaper than anywhere else. Had first light with it yesterday. Very pleased with it.
  4. Gnomes fixed to the top of your fence posts.
  5. Fair point. What about an imitation of Michaelango’s ‘David’?
  6. What’s his compass position in relation to you? Looking again at your photo, it strikes me that a solid fence would give some protection. Alternatively, without using leylandii, you could do something with bamboo fencing and clever planting.
  7. Erect a large screen between your gardens. Have your side painted black, whilst the side facing your neighbour is painted in reflective or/and luminous paint bearing a vast phallus.
  8. My eyepiece arrived today reasonably well -packaged jiffy. It should have been signed for, but it was just posted through the letter box. I’m pleased with my purchase, that’s for sure. Just need something to look at now!!
  9. Hi @calummac I think it’s generally felt that the stock 10mm eyepiece that Sky-Watcher supplies is pretty poor, so you might want to consider getting a better quality mid-range magnification eyepiece.
  10. Ooooh Aaaaahhh oooooohhh. aaaaaahhhhhhh <looks at sky> Ah.
  11. What about the Angles? I understand they can be quite rude, if over 90 degs.
