Calendar as Wallpaper


Couldn't find any similar post on this subject. But then again I never find the search facilities on forums of very much help.

Anyway. Is there a possibility of providing the Calendar in electronic format? either as just image files or as an auto changing wallpaper. I use two monitors so it would be nice if you can have the MONTH on the primary display and the IMAGE on the secondary monitor (or vice ...

Hi from North Wales

Hi my name is Trish and I have just started looking at the skies. My husband bought me a second hand, only used once, Sky Watcher AZ127 for Christmas. I've managed to look at the moon several times and my oldest grandson who is 6 looked at the moon last night using the lunar filter. Wow he was very excited. Having problems using the auto scan alignment for two stars has anyone got any advice? ...

Will i acheive focus?

Hi Guys

I currently have a Meade LX10 OTA to which I have attached a Celestron f6.3 focal reducer.

I am purchasing a secondhand William Optics 2" SCT Crayford Focuser which will eliminate mirror slop.

My question is, will I be able to achieve focus throughout my eyepiece range if I attach the focal reducer and the SCT focuser?

I will obviously be using a star diagonal too.

Hello from London

Hi, I'm Stan, I live in London and I just wanted to say 'Hi'. My dear wife is buying a new scope for me this Christmas, Celestron 90GT WiFi, so I’m looking forward to do some winter sky watching instead of football watching (I’m an Arsenal fan) this Christmas.

Santa's Woes

Now the BBC Science boards are now closed, I'm not sure where to post this. Santa is facing many threats, financial and environmental. Firstly, the EU has reduced their contribution to him and the possibility of countries, like the UK leaving the UK, mean that his funding could be cut even further. The SNP policy is that an independent Scotland would not financially support Father Christmas. Apart from UKIP, who are undecided whether a UK ...
