  1. Ok you got me I'm actually a time lord! Lol.
  2. Just tried it and got M51, which is pretty cool. Also that it has been 37 years since Star Trek was first aired....which is even cooler. JV
  3. Looks good Andrew.....I've been away so long that I can't believe little Hannah is sitting up!!!! JV
  4. Clever design. Well done. This would be ideal for smaller gardens. JV
  5. Great idea. Hope you have easygoing neighbours. JV
  6. Very nice me old mate...the scopes i beautiful too JV
  7. Those images are just incredible. JV
  8. Swm Mae Harry. Croeso I SGL. They are a great bunch. :hello1: JV
  9. Hope life is getting back to....well you know what I mean. Glad to have you back fella. JV :hello1:
  10. Thanks Mac. The whole push to set up really fasinates me. Yours is excellent, thank you for posting it. How did you work out the "squint"? I assume its on the dovetail bars, I can't imaging the mount head being out. In fact I think I have some machine shims in my late fathers workshop....any use if I can find them? Or will it be a file job? Mind you 0.2 shouldn't really worry you....should it JV
  11. Great report Mac. Did you make your own setting circle, or is it purchased? It really does look like an excellent piece of equipment. Out of further interest, what program do you use on your PDA to get the correct coordinates? JV
  12. Get in line Mark I can't think why anyone would leave their family and friends (and breathable air!) to go to Mars!!! Leave it to the Rovers. JV
  13. Mac.....thats an excellent solution, and a really smart setup. I was just thinking how much easier that kind of setup would be when trying to teach my kids and their friends how to find our galactic wonders. Keep up the good work. BTW is that a William Optics mount head? JV
  14. PANRIFIC Grant!!!! Keep up the good work. JV :wave:
