Happy birthday Derek. You'll love the Skyfi USB. I have Skyportal wifi for my 6/8SE got mount, and control it with Skysafari Pro. It works a treat, and it is so easy to select an object to view, and also control the mount too. Enjoy your new toys! :)

To make it easier to carry out my long Altair Astro f11 Starwave 102mm 'frac to observe with I splurged out for the official carry handle to go with it, which arrived about 30mins ago. :) 

Part 2 of what the postie brings arrives tomorrow from Amazon! ;)

Part 2: 

The postie was busy today with more Astro goodies coming in the mail. First up was a book from Amazon on Astro sketching (which I hope to start to do soon), next some Astro gloves, then a Baader Genuine Orthoscopic 7mm EP (thanks Grumpy Martian), and finally some cables for my 6/8SE Goto mount I got off Parallaxerr a few weeks back. That will keep me going for a day or two until more Astro goodies arrive next week! Hehe! ;)

Nothing like new glassware to raise the level of excitement!

And I like that mug.

Doug.

I'm itching to use it, but it seems I'm paying a cloud penalty now! Perhaps along with the specs of an item suppliers should now include an estimate of the cloud penalty incurred by purchasing, measured in nights and miles.

It's a good mug. My other office favourite says "Another 8 hours of pretending to work"

Never mind the eyepiece, I want one of those mugs :biggrin:

I could do with 250 of those to give as gifts to everyone in our IT department :evil:

Part III (starting to sound like episodes from Star Wars now! Hehe! ;) );

Some 20x80 Celestron Skymaster binoculars bought of Chris on here (many thanks Chris :) ) and arrived this morning by Parcelforce. Also, about an hour later I got the ridiculously blooming expensive bracket from Orion which is the unimpressive small black bar under the binocular silver securing bar) to allow me to fit the new binos to my Orion binocular mount, so hoping the forecasted good weather for clear skies for the next three nights materialise to be able to use them! :)

Not really the postman-more like two and a half hours on the train, half an hour at the station looking for a man with a blue baseball cap and two and a half hours back again but I'm thrilled nonetheless. Apparently, he'd got two of them for Christmas (I should've asked if his family wanted to adopt me). Thanks David.
