A more balanced Skytee


Recommended Posts

Just got Pats old Farpoint saddle clamp fitted to the previously useless end of the Skytee.

Now the 10" Schmidt Newt is better balanced with the 6" Bresser.







Suggestions on where I should stick my Telrad would be useful, provided they are not rude  :D .

Pete, that set-up reminds me of those people who try to get as many into a phone box as possible, except you are seeing how many can observe from the same mount at the same time! Looks cool!

I have been using Dropbox for a while now. Maybe someone can tell me whether I have a virus or Dropbox is a virus or the image has one. I am on Linux and didn't think Linux was subject to viruses like Windows. I took the image on my iPhone.


So I'm a bit confused.

Hi Folks,


Ok no virus in any of the pics, :-


1. This site has probably been picked up without a safety certificate which is why symantec is reporting this. It is reporting the site not Pete's images

2. Dropbox is a well known repository and my educated guess is this is a false positive from symantec which will clear, as the folk at Dropbox will be all over this like a rash.

3. Jpegs are usually safe as they are passive, the common way to fool you is to have a name like star.jpg.exe. So if you are not careful instead of opening a pic you have clicked on an executable piece of code.


However there are ways to embed code into jpegs using third party software which I will not mention, so you should be careful opening images from unknown sources.


So always keep your antivirus program on and up to date and some anti malware software :D
