  1. Sad times indeed. Mayfield was used by lots of people and groups and will be sadly missed.
  2. Hi Jase...I HAD a ten inch Dob ( no longer sadly) and as I struggled to carry it in and out of the house each session, I quite often wished for a Flexy...If I go 'DOB' again it will be a Flexy...
  3. It's been like looking through 'Lost and Found Dept'...anyway I've found it now. Didn't realise it had moved until this morning...
  4. Hi Chez and Malc...how ya doin'?...sorry to hear your move wasn't quite what you expected. I got rid of my 10" Dob and swaped it for a Celestron 127 Mak... Easier to lug around...not really had time to use it yet 'cos of the b****y cloud and trying to work out the self alignment system, anyway if you decide to organise a meet for stargazing at a dark (ish) site, let me know.....I'll keep an eye on the forum. Clear skies to you both.

    You certainly did jinx the sky Andy !!!!...welcome to SGL from me in Sheffield.....clear skies to you.
  13. :icon_eek: Last night/this morning was one of the best observing sessions I've had for a long time. It was my first serious stargazing session since I traded my 10" Dob for a more manageable Celestron 127 Mak and goto mount....and I miss my Dob so much !!! I was set up and waiting by 10pm and it still looked like mid afternoon!!! anyway, as soon as I could see three bright stars I launched into the sky align...(after meticulously leveling the tripod)...failure after failure.....four times I tried, very frustrating...is this common or is it just my ineptitude ? Anyway after realising the e
  14. In that case, Count my Celestron 127 SLT Mak as well.....not looked through it yet, only traded my 250 PX Dob for it yesterday...B****R off clouds!!!!
