  1. From the album: Cygnids in Jully 2019 from Bulgaria

    We carefully monitor the displacement of the radiant. It looks like a meteor shower!
  2. Hi all, Having just started out with my telescope (and still awaiting some decent clear skies for a decent play!), I wanted to find a sensible dust cover, come protective rain/shower cover, for storage inside while not being used, and as an emergency cover-up when outside. In particular, I wanted a suitable dust cover for indoors. I found all the usual expensive options, plus a lot of recommendations, but none for me seemed to fit the bill, though I am sure there are others out there. However, being a boaty kind of person, I have used over the past few years the "Ducksback" outboard engine covers during winter storage. These, as it happens, are the ideal thing, and after checking out the sizes, the Size 5 80 to 150HP outboard engine size cover is just perfect for a Skywatcher Skyhawk 500mm 1145P! And it costs just £11.80! Here are the details if it helps anyone else... To quote, they are "waterproof, UV resistant, breathable,300 denier 6oz polyester material, drawstring closure with toggle fastening for easy fit". They come in a range of sizes, and without wishing to be seen as advertising them, I don't think they have cottoned on to these covers being great for telescopes yet! The full range (in either silver or blue), covers dimensions for all sizes 1 to 7 (length 90cm x width 60cm x height 80cm). They are floppy and easily accommodate strange telescope shapes. You can check them out or buy at: https://ducksback.co.uk/?product=outboard-engine-cowl-cover-silver Or buy easily on eBay as I did. Hope helps, Clive
  3. For the first time in ages I've been able to see the meteor shower as it's been clear for the first time in years from where I've been. Even got the missus to finally see a meteor! As I went inside for a few minutes I also swear I heard an object hitting something hard and then our hedge move. I know it's pretty unlikely to be a meteorite but had a quick look but didn't see anything I reckon I'll have to have a gander in the morning but I wont count my chickens! Did anyone else get a chance to see any meteors?
  4. Hello, This is my first post on Stargazer's website. I live in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee and am an avid (wannabee) star gazer. I have a schedule of the meteor showers saved on my desktop so I know when to look at the sky. The North Taurids meteor shower occurred last week and I went to a secluded area to watch above. As I sat outside with my camera, which is a Canon Rebel XTI, a meteor had a trajectory that was just miles above me. Then, I heard a loud boom in the woods surrounding the lake just outside of Hermitage. Just curious if anyone got a picture of this occurrence or if anyone else experienced this same situation. Thanks, John
  5. The peak of the Lyrid Meteor Shower. Some meteors expected to be visible between 19th and 25th April. The Moon will be at First Quarter so will interfere in early evening. ZHR of around 10 from a dark site with the peak at 4am.
  6. With only a small window of the sky, (due to camping in a small forest clearing) which was basically a limited view of the "Summer Triangle", I was very fortunate to witness five meteors within five minutes of each other close to midnight on Saturday/Sunday 18th/19th August. Knowing the peak of the Kappa Cygnids was the previous night I was hoping to spot maybe the odd one, however it was quite a spectacle to get a small shower display - particularly as once the first was spotted, interest from other people gained, and almost instantly their sudden interest was rewarded. Not all the meteors appeared to have the same radiant, but as all appeared within the small section of sky it seemed likely they were Kappa Cygnids. After the racy five minutes, I was able to just view the spectacle of a fabulous dark sky with the Milky Way visible and rather a lot of satellites buzzing by for the next hour or so whilst I polished off some excellent wine on the comfortable warm night by a softly burning campfire! No better way to witness one of the best displays on Earth.
