  1. Hi Michelle welcome to SGL from Doncaster!
  2. 1. Has Light pollution got worse over the last 30 - 50 years. If so what effect has this had on your Astronomy? -- Yes,definitely with light pollution in and around Doncaster i've noticed a greater difficulty in viewing the stars. 2. How have you or haven't you tackled the problem of light Pollution ? -- Tried contacting Doncaster MBC re street lighting and pollution never heard a thing. What with cutbacks etc not exactly a high priority by the look of it unfortunately. 3. What effect does light pollution have on your telescope ? ( How have you got around this EG filter kits) -- Intend on trying some filters if and when i get chance. 4. When you were a child could you look up every night and see the stars from where you lived ? ( If answer is no when was the first time you saw a proper night sky. -- Being ahem! 57 this year as a child of the 60's i can very clearly remember looking up into the night sky and the Milky Way was very visible,prevailent weather patterns allowing of course. I've lived in the same area all my life btw so have noticed viewing changes over the years, Ah for the old days
  3. Nice to know Dave as i live in a terraced area with visible stars to now and south only.
  4. Wow!! very nice well done mate, what equipment were you using may i ask? If i can one day get shots like that i'd be very happy.
  5. A power cut and clear skies would be welcome though the incoming weather makes the clear skies highly unlikely
  6. Good news for Sheffield be nice if neighboring Doncaster do it as well but i'm not holding my breath
  7. i'd be tempted to use a motion sensor alarm hidden on your neq6 if you had one just to be on the safe side. If they can carry heavy rolls of cable, metal drain covers etc, they can pinch that too Emad
  8. When X Factor (or the S Factor as i call it, figure it out ) comes on i insist my wife records it and views when i'm not around, i detest that show and others like it. The death of decent drama programmes as far as i'm concerned. Failing that i'd go look a painted wall drying its far more interesting
  9. Sweet camera you got there mate, coincidentally i've been out today with 'Mrs Klytus' and bagged me a d600. I felt abit sick afterwards spending all that money but as you say its a hobby for grey days too eh?
  10. Well i knowing not much about AP at all, like it alot especially as its a first attempt
  11. looked at at your astrobin page Steve, very interesting. Now have it bookmarked thanks.
  12. I can not believe it the camera playback glitched a few seconds before liftoff, when the picture caught up it was already off the pad grr!
