Hi Geoff, didn't see a crescent phase - also tried the 2 x barlow with the 26mm but Venus was a little bit blurred.

Still I've got the power tank, lead and now have the compass/leveller that fits the eyepiece (Xmas present) so hopefully more exciting sightings to come.

Hi all, Friday 28th at 5.30 pm set up scope in my daughters bedroom and opened the window to a great view of both Jupiter and Venus.  Used a 26 mm and a 7.5 mm eyepiece and saw Jupiter with 4 moons all in a row (two at one side and two at the other) and Venus a bit further down. Tried to take s...

Hi, I'll be there and Claire (my daughter) will be coming with me so can help set up.  I think someone is in the hall before us and so we'll probably have to wait until 7.30 pm before we get in.

See you all tonight.

Cheers.

Hi jholmes007, glad the evening was a success.  I had some family and friends round watching the Ryder Cup and that didn't finish until late on so I couldn't make it.

Will come along to the next one and hopefully will have managed the alignment of my scope!

Cheers.

Hi Cosmic, sounds like all the waiting was worth while!  Wow can't believe what you managed to see. I am thoroughly disappointed in myself for giving up with the ETX 90 alignment and will make an effort again given the success you have had. I have had someone align it for me whilst at a star pa...

Hi Cosmic, Where did you see the article as I haven't seen it - was it the one with the girls looking at the telescope?  I think we may also feature in the Culture Bites publication - fingers crossed. Hopefully the articles will generate some more interest in Club and the meeting on 16/09 will ...
