Well took the plunge on Tuesday and been buying again (for what could be the last time for quite a while), apart from a H-Alpha solar scope and a bigger dob there is nothing else I need.   W

think i may just have ordered one of these  

Christmas came early. ?   Think I have everything I need now except possibly a Polemaster. Nice dealings with RVO ?...

Couple of recommends for purchases I made recently, firstly, astro table, it's light, it's aluminium, the top is some kind of laminate, it's definitely steady enough and the top is silver, meaning all your kit shows up on it in the dark, it looks bigger on the pic than it really is ;-

The table is here :-

Next up, this is an absolute godsend and dirt cheap! If you're so inclined you could replace the leds with red ones, it has two leds and the switch is 3 position, off, 1 led, 2 leds. it's VERY directional and clipped onto a laptop it illuminates the keyboard beautifully. :-

ROFL, you put a barbeque on it!!!!! And you're surprised it burnt? It would have caused me great amusement too I'm still laughing whilst typing this! It's a great table for outside with lappy and all the gubbins on though, and i'm really made up with the light, absolutely perfect for the purpose.

We love our iPad 2. Hope you enjoy yours Craig.

We got ours shortly after they came out and use it loads most days.

Star Walk and Solar System and great apps.

I'm just finishing reading the ebook version of Wonders of the Solar System on it :))

Just got a battery trickle charger (thanks Martyn), a red/white LED head torch (thanks Martyn), some socks (a gift, thanks Martyn!) and collected my 2" Revelation ED Barlow (thanks Rob!).

Not bad for a night out. :D

I bought a 17mm Nagler from Green Witch as the second hand one I was after did not materialise, A Maplins flight case and am going to order a 2" Powermate 2x tomorrow. That is it then until this time next year.
