Getting somewhere with the Star Adventurer

I'm enjoying getting to grips with the Skywatcher Star Adventurer.
Most recently on Saturday when I managed to get a decent polar alignment, so was able to get something worth processing with my 200mm f/4 lens on the camera.

Nexstar 5SE or 6SE

Hello all,

I hope you don't mind the silly question and one I am sure you have heard before!

My son has been using his cousins Nexstar 4SE and has well and truly gotten the bug. I have been asked continually about buying him his first telescope and to be fair he has spent a lot of time researching which has been great to see.
He would like to go with the Nexstar 5SE, but ...

Perseid Meteors

I put out my home-made 'All Sky' camera last night (9th/10th) to see if I could bag any meteors. The cloud came and went throughout the night, but I managed to get one at about 0114 UT.

Photobucket's Ransom demand.

I'm writing this once here so I don't have to repeat it on every thread I've contributed to.


Photobucket, having previously flagged up the use of its image hosting site for forums, (third party images) have now decided to demand $39/month to allow the images already posted on forums to be seen. Always supposing I had that kind of money to spare, there is a principle at stake here. Thousands of people all over ...
