    Am I the first with a moon shot from last night? Through my little telescope before I sell it tomorrow (got a better one now )

    Yup, 85. Hasn't been out for a while, so thought I'd take it for a walk.

    Proof that I am going mad if I'm taking pics of flowers during a walk!

    Thanks Rob. My wife hates that too, so hardly take any of her. However, because she’s been doing these crafts things with the little one, I have caught her. Especially the colourful elephants they made out of milk bottles. Though, she did end up doing both of them herself!! I struggle with...

    I would have never painted stones before this.. Or probably not have seen her first hand stands. Though I was a bit slow off the mark with the 55 being a bit tight, but hey ho, it was what was to hand. We've had the bubbles out a fair bit. And enjoyed doing some reading etc. We are...

    You’re right, going out to use your gear is what most people do, though there’s plenty you can still do at home. I meant that I’ve just not used the 24 much at all since I’ve had it. On a personal level, I’ve been snapping away at home as a mini record of what we’ve been doing to keep sane...

    Think I might put my 24 art for sale if anyone’s interested. Just haven’t used it tbf and it’s as new really. Shame sat there doing nothing when I have another little project that the money could go towards.

    Having been playing with the telescope this last week, a T2 adapter arrived yesterday just in time to try the A7 on the scope. Ran into the technical snag of not being able to focus close enough. Ah well. Read up on it and now need to spend another few £s on another gadget that may or not work...

    That’s been the problem with mine tbh, tracking. I never did set mine up, although it came with one. So that’s my weekend mini project. Wasn’t clear enough last night to set it up around the celestial point.

    I’ll order one of those adaptors today. Got the scope out last night and set it up again - clearly I hadn’t before. Was looking at new eye pieces last night, might buy some. Assume you need a Barlow lens with T adaptor to mount or does the adaptor mentioned mount to a standard eye piece?

    An excellent view, one that I share. Everyday snapshots in time are important. Have to sometimes remind myself of that, particularly now, when most of the scenes before me have been shot to death. But the family growing up is something I’ll look back on in years to come. PS. Have you moved to...

    I couldn’t see much detail at all of planets and was left feeling very underwhelmed. My binoculars were nearly as good by comparison. Maybe i was expecting too much for £170?

    Blimey, that is a beast! How good is it; very crisp and clear with planets? Do I need to upgrade the kit eye pieces?

    That should be the easy bit, I didn't get around last time to working out how the EQ mount worked and the finder scope was a bit hit and miss
