anyone out there in Cornwall......

I recently received my first scope as a xmas present. Its a 70mm refractor on an equatorial mount.
The assembly looks a daunting task, and I wondered if someone could give me a hand to assemble it?

Many thanks, Peter

Observatory Humididty/Condensation

Hi All,

Happy Christmas!

I'm just having an observatory installed. I am concerned about humidity/condensation. I can measure humidity and currently I keep my telescopes at between 50% to 70%. Are these reasable figures?

Any help out there?

All the best

Problems with coverdisk

Does anyone share my problems with the coverdisk? When I view certain Bonus Features (mostly films) the wrong one is shown. No amount of restarting or reloading will solve this. I am therefore stuck only to view certain videos.
