Orion Nebula

Still trying to get to grips with the Hypercam 183C camera,but certainly surprised with this result.Connected to a 80mm refractor,on a driven equatorial mount. A stack of 113 frames @ 7.5 secs before the clouds rolled in! https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4626/39537090014_1c6dc3818b_b.jpg Stack_113fram...

Portugal - Duty Free Allowance

I'm going to Portugal soon,and wondered if any members could confirm the allowance for tobacco and spirits?.
I,ve read various conflicting reports on what you are allowed,and would like to know before hand,what i can bring back.
If anyone has been recently,that is better still.
Thank you.

Re: Sigma 70-200 f2.8

I've used it on a D90 and was pleased with it.Although i tend to favour the Sigma 120-300 F2.8 (the older 1 with no OS).
Hope this helps.

Nikon 2nd body dilema

After the price being announced for the D500,(amongst other things),i'm now looking at a possible 3 options. 1. Another D300s. 2.D7100 and 3.D7200,none of which will be new. I don't want the hassle of having to change the lenses i already have,hence it having to be a Nikon. Anybody made the upgrade ...

Re: RAF 'Airseeker' at the Hall

Sorry for the confusion.The 'Airseeker' is capable of refueling,but not by the RAF.The problem is that the U.S. Air Force and other Nato countries use a different method of air-to-air refuelling than the RAF.So the RAF have to rely on other nations if it's on a extended mission.
Hope this makes sense!
