  1. New toy

    Lol cut out the ciggies. Perhaps when I’m in the grave mate.
  2. New toy

    I hope it sells quick mate. Need to get some cash back in the bank after paying for the van. Lol. Shane
  3. Time has come to upgrade from the camper trailer to a caravan. Got the new (to us) caravan last Friday, now to sell the camper. Shane
  4. Mars, not wasted time...

    Nice work mate, bigger is always better or so they say lol. Shane
  5. Planetary Debacles

    Hate it when problems arise. It appears you're not on your own mate, Greg was having issues as well. Shane
  6. Wasted time.

    Tim that looks bloody awful, might be time to move.... just make sure to leave the jetstream where it is beforehand. lol Thats a bit strange Ray, my prostar colour cam works fine on win10. Although I do want to replace it for mono as its my guide cam. Shane
  7. Obs refurbish/repair

    it appears I’m going to have to rethink the roof and replace it. After several hours of light to mild rain overnight I still have a leak. I really thought I had it covered with the amount of silastic I used. Shane
  8. NGC7331 massive crop

    Wow. Nice combination. Shane
  9. NGC7331 massive crop

    Very nice Greg. Shane
  10. Obs refurbish/repair

    Tim I know you’re right it needs a fridge and bar but it already has a man cave sign. Shane
  11. Obs refurbish/repair

    Made a little tool caddy this arvo. Still need to paint it but came out better than expected, only needs a minor fix for a couple of pairs of tweezers. Shane
  12. Last nights Mars.

    At someone is getting some action. Nice Tim. Shane
  13. Obs refurbish/repair

    Added some more shelves today and a drawer under computer desk. Now to get everything back in and stored in appropriate places. Still working out proper fused power but that will happen when my sparky mate can come around. Shane
  14. Obs refurbish/repair

    Today’s quick update. Computer desk done, computer back in and working. Will probably move the top monitor so it sits directly over the other one but we shall see. Also put in a small shelf for model display. Abrams and millennium falcon paper models, type 59 and tiger plastic models. Unfortunately I still have to find a small leak. After several hours of rain a couple of days ago I checked just to make sure and there is a small area still getting water in. It’s obviously not a huge leak but I still need to fix it. Shane
  15. Obs refurbish/repair

    Gday Ray, paint is for my other hobby, modelling of the plastic kind. Also do paper variety. Shane.
