  1. Eyepiece arrived Mark, and to a clear moonlit night! Many thanks, andrew
  2. Fine skies here again, and also had nice views of M51. Tonight in 10x50 binoculars - for the first time. Glad you had a good view. andrew
  3. I have a Vixen NLV 12 eyepiece for sale. With very comfortable 20mm eye relief, in nice condition - they have been replaced by the SLV range. Don't have the top cap will come with bolt case. £30 Withdrawn sorry Thanks andrew
  4. Serene view of Porthcawl - the scene no doubt different over the Easter holidays! andrew
  5. On a similar note, this time of year the darkness has already gone for some - with no astronomical twilight approaching. http://astro.ukho.gov.uk/nao/miscellanea/twilight/ andrew
  6. Looked again tonight at Pallas in 10x50s. It's position had noticeable moved from last night - about 0.5 degree north against the background stars. andrew
  7. I've also been looking at some of these lovely clusters tonight in 10x50s plus a look at asteroid Pallas near Arcturus, a starlike speck. Lovely night here. andrew
  8. Clear outside is given 19.99 - I think it could be over 20 here on a good night. 19.39 now after some fine rain. andrew
  9. Just tried the app out, pointed at Auriga area and got 19.21 in average conditions for here, slight haze - will try on a darker night. andrew
  10. After reading this, I've just downloaded the Dark Sky iPhone app so will check it out tonight - thanks for the info. andrew
  11. The O'Meara book from his deep sky companions series is very good. Some of the objects will require a trip down south though, so you may have to factor in the cost of a flight and small refractor ! andrew
  12. I think the 82deg view is more immersive - and it is noticeable Kev for more relaxed viewing. Those 16 SWA are regarded as little gems though. andrew
  13. I've used both in the past. The nirvana was a bit more comfortable but the meade/maxvision was a bit sharper. andrew
