    Ahh I see you opted for the proper case, I always go third party, mainly because I’m over clocking my Pi 3B+ as its running everything from Atari 8 bit Roms upto Playstation 1 games so I need more cooling options. This is my retro gaming rig, 60,000 games on just about every console made running off a 256GB micro SD card, it also has heat sinks on every chip and a 5V fan over the main GPU running off the 5V GPIO pins...

    I caught the end from about here (by courtesy of Stellarium and Ubuntu lol). I was using the 127mm Mak and WO bino's with 20mm SWAN's for 75x. I saw Jupiter up until transit. Transparency was a bit pants, but then the clouds really rolled in. The Moon was incredibly low.

    Tuesday 16 July Tannenbaum for eclipse.....??

    Thanks to Rob’s optimism πŸ‘ and for the views through his Dob I got to see the eclipse, Jupiter and Saturn. I have learnt not to be such a doubting Thomas. I like the shot. That is what we saw.

    Eclipsed by the Earth - and Clouds

    OK, so it was a bit cloudy for the partial #LunarEclipse but I'm not complaining cos you get moody images like this (if you're patient) #astronomy #astrophotography

    My knee injury is playing up and it's looking pretty cloudy down here, so I'm giving this one a miss. Get some good pics if you can.
