It is my belief that if everybody orders nothing new (including used items) for the next week then the clouds will get bored and move off to another country to annoy their astronomers! If you're outsi

Too late. I have a Canon 1100d on its way. I suppose I could pretend that I will only use it for non-Astro photography. Sorry all!

Its been cloudy in the Chicago area for over 3 weeks straight now....started right when I orders my first guide cam....so I feel your pain

Bought my scope, still need eq5 mount, finder scope, mounting plate & a couple of eyepieces.

That's ordered the cloud for a few more days.

Would be a tad irritated if it was clear as I'm still using bino's until the scope setup is complete.

Seen the sun (briefly) today, but the cloud will be back tonight................Doh!

If we ordered scopes in drought affected areas, would we be doing a service to those in desperate need of rain?

The need for me to see a single star (not the sun) is greater than anyone's need for water!

I've heard of these 'star' things. What exactly are they?

A star is a cosmic magical light thing that instructs us on how to conduct our lives. This can be anything from going for a new job to what kind of mood you should expect to be in for the day!

Hi,

I have an Artificial Star, I made it out of an LED torch, some cardboard and tin foil. Whenever we haven't seen the real ones for a while I set it up in the garden to give my scope something to look at and stop it (and me) from getting bored.

Make yours using the following link and stave off the boredom too.

Well my car has just cost me the £400 I had putaway for a new mount so your safe in the knowledge that I will not be buying anything for a while :sad:. In fact may well be eating beans until the end of march due to budget constraints :eek:

It's funny but I'm actually tempted to try something like this indoors to test out my Synguider I've not had a chance to play with yet. Was thinking of waiting until it's dark and shining a laser pointer onto a wall to see if I could lock onto it and if so, try slowly moving it to see what happened!
