Same for me, I gave up on it in the end and was following a rather thin live blog, I think the bbc article I found gave me more info than the blog.

The fact that you can't turn off auto updating is the killer for me.

Ar2339 8/5/14

I braved the wind and cracked the newt out for some white light images of AR2339 and am fairly happy with the results. The wind won out the day before I could do any barlowed close ups though.

Thanks Don for that.

I'm relatively certain now I'm leaning for the Bresser SA x2, which is basically a revamp of the Meade 5000 telextenders and the same optically as the ES focal extender.
