    Upgraded to an OOUK

    nice upgrade, what focuser is that and any issues fitting it? also got the OO12 F4 thinking of changing focuser
  2. hi Selling my Lodestar x2 colour autoguider / EEA camera, can be picked up from surrey area else shipped to uk address. No issues and almost as good as new, only used couple of times due to other commitments /weather, hence looking to sell, no previous owners. Looking for £230 including postage. (Retails around £445 new hence good bargain) relisted as previous interest fell through. regards Jamie
  3. took a guess and went for 70%, not having resold any imaging devices do they go for less second hand?
  4. hi Selling my lodestar x2c autoguider as dont get the time to make use of it. Originally bought new from FLO and comes pretty much as good as new, stored indoors in case and only used around five times. Comes with all original parts. regards Jamie

    Iridium Flashes no more....

    ...a couple less streaks on my allskycamera video frames then! i like the iridium flares personally, set skysafari to notify when head over. ive seen quite a few other flashes from other satellites, assume iridium are the brightest?

    Say hi and plan a meet up!

    hi Stu Bignor is good - been there once but over 2 years ago - not for a while! Hoping to get there again soonish again. Normally head to Ranmore, if its looking good can plan to head there - though weather not holding out too well at moment! Likewise if can get in a session would be good. Jamie
  9. hi all Been a while since a meet up has been organised! Would be good see who is about (all welcome) and then arrange a meet up, so please drop a note to say hi if you are up for a meet up soon. Weather this week not looking great so will keep an eye out, hopefully sometime next week if weather improves! Jamie
