The WAS CPC1100 with a ST80 mounted on top and a balance weight underneath. The finder has been moved to the other side. This should give wide field views and allow imaging. Chris Rowland 2 Nov 2011

The Green thing on the patio! Somewhere under this is my scope, covered with a patio furniture cover from B&Q. Chris
Now the wedge and scope are attached - waiting for dark!
The final layer (course) of bricks have been added and the mounting plate fixed on top, waiting for the cement to set.

Whiteboard slide from Pat C's practical evening photography talk from the new toy in the meeting room - a smart projector/whiteboard thingie with which you can write on the screen in different colours with your fingers but not messily, save images, connect computers and stuff. Original was 1024x768 - this copy reduced to a half on each dimension to save electrons. Ed.
