DIY Spring Peak star party.


Recommended Posts

Sorry, Nick, I think I've turned your Peak Star Party into Crufts in the Peaks :lol:

Should we cause a distraction and talk about which scope we are brining?

My choices are:

  • OO UK VX12 F4
  • Celestron C11 F10
  • Skywatcher Evostar 150 F8
  • Altair Starwave 152 F5.9
  • Celestron C5 F10
  • TV-60 F6
  • Lunt 50Ha
  • Berlebach UNI-28 with Tele-Optic Ercole
  • Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 GT
  • TV Telepod with Tele-Optic Mini GR2
  • Canon 10x50 IS Bins

Decisions, decisions...

Yes, I agree. I should bring all of them :evil:

Derek, STOP! Don't brine your scopes, you will ruin the optics...... ;) 

But @faulksy said brine was good for cleaning streaks off a 22" mirror so I assumed it would be ok :lol:

Anyone remember the good old days ? Just down to 7 now, Lee's got a bigger shed with double that. That's his legs at the back of the tank.IMG_0179.JPG

Then there was the smallest society in the country. We lost a few on the Dartmoor selection process.IMG_4476.JPG

I didn't realise the Dob Mob had been at it for so long!

I must say Swampy looks rather fetching in his white blouse and polka-dot skirt :wink:

Don't know why you bother with water. My mirrors are probably unclean   , ? ,but untouched. I did like the guy on fleabay who used mirror spray and a soft cloth. ( not advisable, do not try this at home ).

Best one that I saw , was a 150 Newt view with SKAG. Not only was there a web down the ota, but a small spider sitting in it. 

Strange that no one's mentioned Jaffa cakes yet , or are we too near to Bakewell ?

i'll try and get LeeB up there. Trouble is every time he comes , the clouds arrive. It's technical genius versus no observing . Perhaps we should present him with the results of a referendum. 

Nick.
