Before you go and blame me for the impending storm I will tell you that Rakanishu has also bought a 200P and has yet to open the cloud box. As his is new, I'm sure that most of the clouds will be his!

Helen, feel sorry for GJBC who seems to be right next to me!

Just received my Cheshire collimating eyepiece today. I quickly put it into the scope to try it out. I was shocked by how much my telescope was out of collimation!

You'll see a big difference in the azimuth movement when you have that fitted Pete

Found these in " Poundland " today. . . . A string of 20 " Red " LED lights, which run off two AA batteries. . . . Wow !

Good for a caravan, tent, portable observatory, tripod legs, and probably a few uses I haven't thought of yet.

They are wired parallel, so you can cut off as many as you like to minimise the light output.

The photo taken by my camera is overly bright, and does not give a true indication of how " very very red " the lights actually are.

Well worth a pound., even for projects. I went back and bought several extra sets.

EDIT: Click on photo to enlarge.

I was thinking about that too Steve, I think it would work out well. The package states that you can expect about 24 hours use out of the batteries. I'm sure it would be considerably more using only a few of the 20 lights provided.

Nice! Where did you get that from!

From a talented young lady I know, who does custom design mugs.
