  2. Fingers crossed for you and you kit. Dont forget anything. Clear skies
  3. I always liked the way that quote in the movie Contact summed it up "I'll tell you one thing about the universe, though. The universe is a pretty big place. It's bigger than anything anyone has ever dreamed of before. So if it's just us... seems like an awful waste of space. Right?" Also if your walking past a pond you wont see the fish till you look into it.
  4. i have a very cool red light head torch
  5. My choice was also based on my disabilities aswell. So dont listen to me

  16. Im in cheshire and would love to goto a star party can you put me on the mailing list aswell please
  17. Are you using registax 4? if so get 5 lol if 5 then i found this which may be helpful "Failed to start AVI decompression" This means for example, that the application that you use to capture webcam images, must be capable of recording as RGB. I use craterlet copied and pasted from another website Hope this helps
  18. Hi Adz, again with a similar celestron goto mount, i could never align it at all. In the end i had to do a 2 star alignment to get it to work
