    Nicely done Sheila, I am looking forward to seeing this again visually. You never know, you might even stick the old mark 1 on an eyepiece again.

  11. latitude eq6 mod

    Had a play earlier and initial thoughts are this is definitely a mod worth doing movement seems really smooth compared to before ,which was jerky and stiff and usually meant you were fighting to get at the correct elevation and you overshot whilst eyeing through the polarscope ,set angle using my iphone to 52° so shouldn`t be miles away once i PA next time i setup which probably won't be for a while ,oh and if you do decide to do this mod don't do what i did, make a mark where the latitude scale is DOH.

  15. Think this was the reference, by Mr Robert Shaw in Jaws, to the Naval ship (US) that created the statement https://neilchughes.com/2013/03/10/the-indianapolis-speech-by-robert-shaw-in-jaws-1975/ - well its now been found http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40991326. And for once the facts were true and unaltered - except for Mr Shaw being their !

  20. Another unusual local group irregular galaxy that rarely sees the limelight. It is a bit closer to us than M31 or M33 but is difficult because it is trying to shine through a rich area of Milky Way gas and dust in Cassiopiea. This is an active starburst galaxy and is quite unusual in that it is embedded in a mostly invisible envelope of hydrogen gas hundreds of times larger than the galaxy and rotating in a different direction to the galaxy itself. Great to see these lesser known galaxies Clive.
  21. Thats a good catch what kit were you using ?
  22. Perseids have started
