Just received my dibond print of my veil mosaic, thrilled to say the least. The photo makes it look a little washed out when in fact it looks quite the opposite.

Mr Postie called today with a parcel containing a pristine 17.5mm Morpheus bought new in June this year. Sadly, the owner is having to give up Astro due to health issues, and I was able to sell a few

And the rejected item was ????? 🤔

the gift - an air blaster

Hadn't expected on low cost mail it'd be sent by air as usually goes overland.

Fantastic bit of kit Dave!  Wasn’t aware of it before you posted these pics.  Looks like the perfect mount. Have you bought it with a particular set up in mind?

Mr Postie called today with a parcel containing a pristine 17.5mm Morpheus bought new in June this year. Sadly, the owner is having to give up Astro due to health issues, and I was able to sell a few things to fund this ep.

It now joins my other 17.5mm Morpheus for binoviewing, and the pics show first the new arrival, next the pair together, and finally with my Revelation Binoviewers.

I was able to have a really quick evening look at our church tower, and got lovely views of a Jackdaw preening on one of the steeples, with close up multicoloured views of lichens and moss growing on the stonework.

And....it looks as if it could be really clear here tonight! (I do hope I don't live to regret that in a couple of hours).

Clear skies, fingers crossed..😊👍

Go for it. I just managed a sneaky half hour on planets between clouds. The beauty of a 4inch setup speed 👍

Bad luck Dave. You’ll just have to content yourself by running your finger along those kerfs

I've never been 100% happy with the supplied Sky-Watcher 9x50 finderscope on my 200P Dobsonian, so I ordered a RACI version from Auntie @FLOearlier in the week. It arrived this morning in a RM van...

The original is okay and accurate enough, but you have to be a contortionist to get full use out of it! 😱

No doubt, I'll have a month of crap weather for buying this! 🙄
