Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)
If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.
Our astronomy group ahve been taking about making our own scope but the costs of the mirror put us off…though we still hanker to do it.
Where did you get your mirrror and how much did it cost?
We were thinking of a retractable scope with the rods so it could come appart easily….at least that was/is the dream.
