Thanks for regularly feeding this thread. This is an RJ-100: Brussels Airlines disposed of all of its RJ-85s. ;)

Many thanks to you===============RJ-100 :oops: :oops:

Thanks. Same like in my signature:

- SkyWatcher 10" with Kenko 1.4x and Canon 450D

This time I used SCT. Small and nice scope to take photos through the window 8-)

Hi,

26/09
High pressure sitting over the UK over the weekend, so thought I'd make the most of it and take the scope to the CPT VOR. Movement and conditions were fantastic throughout the day, so good that I went back for more on Sunday. :D

Nice AF066 and THT7 a340 & great shots james,
I have just acquired a 8" dob from ebay just waiting for my Canon 500d and Barlow.
Also on waiting list for Nikon Coolpix P900 so hopefully will have some pictures/videos up soon, once these low pressure systems have cleared
