Re: Another Orion nebula.

Really nice shot. I have toyed with the idea of getting a Star Adventurer. Have you used it 'straight out of the box' - I'm hopeless at modifying anything technical!

Re: Return of the Perseids

I don't normally bother as the weather is usually bad and my garden is very light polluted, Despite lots of patchy cloud I stuck it out for an hour and did see 12 - of which 3 were impressive.

Re: Mercury in Transit

The forecast was poor here, and there was heavy cloud in the morning, but lucky I had plenty of good breaks between around 13:15 and 17:45 (when it disappeared behind trees). I'm glad I got to see a decent amount of it.

Hi Brian,
Yes I did use autofocus. I focused when the moon was nice and bright as I knew it might be tricky during the eclipse. Thanks
