All this talk about food... It's given me an idea. Think it might take off?

Haha, to be fair, half of the cast did - shame they didn't kill off the most annoying ones though lol ;)

Looking good Neil - think I've started something lol :)

I will have to tidy my case up & take a pic, then maybe have a competition for who owns the best presented eyepiece sets.

I have found the new classifieds section, and I don't like it :(

It's going to take some getting used to.

The old classifieds were part of the third party software that has the security flaw in it, so theyve brought it all in house, hence why its layed out like a forum.

I do prefer them having pictures too, maybe they can change it to like a gallery in the future.

Great meeting and a proper laugh at the curry night.

Unlike Vicky I'm just polishing off a pint of water after all that garlic!

Haha, it was a good one. I don't mind being at the end of some of the jokes lol.

Hmm, fortunately I don't have to be up for work at 5am.

Lates for me this week, so no work until 2pm :)

Yes. Really enjoyed the night. Great talk from Julian and ditto what Soupy said - great curry and company afterwards.

Particularly impressed that Damian managed to eat practically a whole family naan by himself!

On my little refractor, one of the two threaded holes (for the thumb screws that tighten down on the star diagonal) is fractionally too large and the thumb screw won't grip and it just comes straight out.

I have tried the thumb screw from the other side, and that too falls out of this side, so I know it is the little threaded hole rather than the screw.

Is there anything I can put round the screw or in the hole to help to grip/tighten the thumb screw, or do I need to see if I can find a slightly bigger screw.

Trouble is that is only fractionally too big, so the next size screw might be too big.

Obviously, I still have one side to tighten down onto the star diagonal (or DSLR nose piece), but don't feel it is as secure as having them both in.

Any advice would be appreciated :)
