  1. I thought the show was perfectly fine and enjoyable. No complaints from me.
  2. Sir Patrick Moore first got me interested in space when I was very young, and my dad bought me a Tasco telescope when I was 7... Unfortunately the Tasco telescope put me off observing as I could never see anything through it... I maintained a passing interest in space since then, but I didn't get fully interested again until about four years ago.
  3. I won't give up astronomy until I'm either too infirm to use my scope (but then there's still stuff I can do online), or I'm dead... *shrug*
  4. How about a guest presenter each week? Seems to work well on other BBC shows when the main presenter is no longer available.
  5. The article said the BBC were still undecided whether or not to continue the show? Is that right? First I'd heard.
  6. I'm not sure what you can get for £120, but if you can stretch to £160 the Google Nexus 7 is quite good. Though for that price you do get limited storage of only 16GB. I use my regularly with apps like SkEye, Star Chart and others.
  7. I use the Cambridge Star Atlas by Wil Tirion
  8. Oops! I didn't mean iTelescope... That can't be used for images of planets.
  9. I've only even seen it through online scopes like iTelescope or Slooh.
  10. I have heard, but I can't verify the source, that Sir Patrick wanted Chris Lintott to take over as lead presenter in the event of his death. I can't confirm this though, as I do speak with Paul, but I think it would be a but disrespectful to ask.
  11. I just tend to put my hands in the pockets of my coat. I take them out to make adjustments and then put them back into my pockets again... Seems to keep them nice and warm
  12. It should definitely have been longer, but it was still a fine tribute. Will miss his cheery "Good Evening" at the top of the S@N shows.
  13. I'd say a Planisphere, a cheap pair of binoculars and a copy of Patrick Moore's Teach Yourself Astronomy.
