It'll take a little time to write all of these things up, but here is the first.
A guide to making an entry on your BLOG. Wasn't quite what I hoped adding content mid post, but I guess I still need to get...
Due to haze and visiting grandchildren didn't use either of my telescopes but on the plus side had some great wide-field views through my 11x80 binoculars . M13, M92 and M31 . Managed to view a numbe...
Friend popped down to collect the 130EQ he is taking off my hands. We had a little star party in North Essex. The skies were not overly kind, so left the HEQ5 to its own crazy non aligned weirdness and concentrated on the newtonians. Saturn was found in both to great effect and we did a fe...
I am looking forward to seeing the results of peoples observing sessions!
the Moon and Mars
M 52 - next time
NGC 147 and NGC 185 - some other time or never
the sky was very clear - 360o no clouds smallest visible star: mag 10 (or better - between 12 and 1 o'clock visibility was great)
I was playing with the mount and...
here is a picture to show some shine on the blank after grinding with 600.
hopefully on Wednesday I should be pouring the pitch lap and Thursday all being well I should be starting the pol...
I have recently ordered a 10 inch deluxe Lightbridge since i found out the new ones are better than the old ones...
I dont think somehow that is completely true so I ask anyone who has owned or owns a lightbridge since 2012
(Beacause the new versions came out in 2012).
Are there any problems with it and can u see detail on the planets,deep sky...
Well, you have inspired a new thought experiment in my brain. Corresponding with you is helping to focus my thoughts.
So, one of the main ideas of my hypothesis is that the source and the receiver of the waves, light or sound, are paired in a tandem such that the s...
When I have time I'll get the camera out on a lens/scope and get a proper image but for tonight that's good enough
this is Prabal Sharma, an amateur astronomer from India
On this blog I will be posting astronomy tips and observation photos etc.
I have a celestron 60 az with quality issues, Stellarium on my computer and some star charts and planispheres
hope you enjoy my posts and images
Its a pretty easy scope to break down into parts, even the mirror cell is simple beyond belief. When it first arrived I emailed Sumerian asking 'wheres the rest o...
Of coarse by dark at this time of year Jupiter was heading downwards already and Mars was climbing for viewing, but the wait was still on for Saturn to peep up above the rooftops.
In the meanwhile M13 looked stunning as usual. Jupiter's red spot and banding was impressive, the tricky M...
Written with solar animation frame alignment in mind. Uses the phase correlation method to detect translations of an image sequence, which can be widely varying, the images severely cropped – exactly what one gets after a few hour solar session with telescope buffeted by wind, drift due to imperfect...
The daylight is certainly starting to d...
I thought I start off with a success story of sorts (lap it up now as there won't be many of these!).
A couple of years ago my youngest daughter upgraded her old Windows Vista (spit ) laptop to a Macbook. The old lap...
