  1. That shouldn't be a problem ... its already on laptop and borrowed projector from work .. we have a blank wall 20' x 30'
  2. Thank you for that been looking for a good planishere to print out and give them
  3. Thank you for that A few of the leaders at our group have smart phones so we can show the kids Star walk and similar apps to identify planets etc the stellarium walk through is a good idea .. Have saved the links to the vids you posted and shall look later hopefully they will throw up some links to other good videos Cub groups are always looking for leaders and help ... we are very fortunate at our group as there are 5 leaders and also a few older scouts / D of E volunteers that pop in on a regular basis It is very rewarding though .... especially when I see some of the lads that were there when I 1st started helping now going to University etc
  4. Ladies and Gents I am hoping some of you can help me please. I help run a Cub Scout group and the week after next we are going to do the Astronomy badge in conjunction with Stargazing live on the TV. I have to keep about 25 Children interested for about 90 mins I have 3 Telescopes so they can do some stargazing ( hopefully if the skies are clear) but while some are doing this with the others I want to run a small presentation on our solar system ... planets etc etc I have access to a pc/mac and also one of those projectors that goes into it ... My intention is to show a few short films ..where we do cubs there is no wifi so I need to be able to download the videos So does anyone have any links to videos that may be suitable to use for 8-11 year olds I saw a video some time ago which showed the size of planets in our system comparing it to other planets and suns gradually going up to white / brown stars etc and ended with a quote saying if a jumbo jet could fly around this star it would take 3000 + years or something Any suggestions or Ideas would be very much appreciated Thanks in advance
  5. I went to Peterborough from Kings Lynn on Saturday and got home about 3 !!! must have just missed that Mind you I know back roads so wouldnt have been a problem anyway !!
  6. I live in Kings Lynn which is only 40 mins away and wouldnt mind a drive up to Kelling on Saturday evening if its clear !! Can anyone just turn up during the day or evening ..???? I heard there are trade stands there etc
  7. Could see it perfectly from my bedroom window right up til about 7.40 when it vanished behind a large bank of cloud Wife was looking at it for a few moments then diving back under the duvet upon one viewing she said " oh look its totally eclipsed now " to which my reply was "yes but only by cloud !! " Most disappointing !! How long do we have to wait for the next Lunar Eclipse ?
  8. best hat could find of any description was this !! Tie Back Scrub Hat Zodiac Astrology Signs on eBay (end time 17-Nov-10 03:36:06 GMT)
  9. I ordered a mains power supply for my Celestron 130slt the other week , ordered it on the monday was told was in stock and should have it in a day or so ... turned up the following Monday !
  10. nice picture me and my lad saw that this morning too .. had a few spare minutes so got the scope out ... 1st time we have used the scope to look at the sun so wasnt sure what we were actually looking for !
  11. hello not a million miles away from you (Kings Lynn)
  12. some ep's have 1.25 & 2 fitting such as Baader Hyperion so if you purchase a scope with a 2 fitting you dont necessarily need to replace your ep's
  13. STAR WALK for the iphone think its free failing that only pence
  14. its good to read a few opinions on this barlow I managed to purchase one off a member on here today from the for sale section, looking forward to getting hands on it asap
