Just finished this - lots of ideas stolen from the stargazing live at Wymeswold and the web. Yet to test the push to, using Skeye on a Galaxy S3.

Almost all parts came from a large garden umbrella, altitude bearings from a plastic chopping board.

That is top notch! And I love the views from the back garden; well in the one direction i could see anyway. Having the phone on top to show you what you are looking at is ingenious also!


 


Great work. Great to have the little chap interested too.

Oh, that's a nice and tidy job.


It really makes a heck of a difference to your comfort when using the bin's, and all you have to do is move them down and Son is able to see what you have been looking at.

He spent the rest of the afternoon identifying airliners! Looks like it may even be clear enough for a while to test out the push-to!
