Hi. From what I have observed, the message will stay in your outbox until the recipient reads it. :)

Re: Some good news I guess?

Looks like it's more for looking at a few random stars rather than as an astronomy location. :)

Re: Over-tightened the Clutch of the AZ GTi Mount

Hi
Is it broken or just came off ? You can try to bring it to McGill.com.sg 's shop and see if they can help ? Repair may not be free but he has access to the manufacturer as he is an authorized agent.

Re: My first DSO photography attempt

Not bad! Yes, there was 1 or 2 nights of extremely clear (by Singapore standards) skies last week. :)

Re: Solar cycle 25

Hi superiorstream,
Glad to see you are till going strong! For me, no sunspots is good...haha. Good for our infrastructure and satellites. But like it or not, the cycle will come and you can observe all you want then. :)

Re: How do yall store your equipment?

Besides dry boxes and plastic case with thirsty hippo, I have come across others who bought the dehumidifer unit and DIY it into an air tight cabinet.

Re: Jupiter appears like white spotty LED traffic lamp on my dobsonian

You must be doing something wrong. Are you in correct focus or way out of focus ? Are you using the right eyepiece? Start with a longer one like 40mm, once Jupiter is centred, switch to your 10-30mm. Then rotate down from 30mm to 10mm,
