Re: Garden Reflection Pool - Lockdown Project

What a good idea and very effective, did you sit outside waiting or set the camera up and use a trigger release to get them ?

Re: DHL 757

Thanks both for the information.

Thats a shame, G-BIKX was one of the first aircraft I worked on after my apprenticeship in 1991, I was hoping it was in a new phase of life as a test aircraft.

Cheers,
Jeff

DHL 757

There is currently one of our old 75s floating around the west country. G-BIKX which I thought was now with DHL but has the callsign ETP88.
Does anybody know what its doing or who it is with? ETP? Empire Test Pilot?

Cheers,
Jeff

Re: Orion Nebula

Excellent image.

Haven’t used my scopes for a while having had several very frustrating attempts to set my new EQ6 mount up.
Been thinking about having another run at it recently and this has inspired me.

Where are you based with your scope?

Cheers,
Jeff.
