  1. Sorry I took forever to see these comments! Thanks gang! I use a canon 20d with a 70-200mm IS L lens. And I believe that is the rossette that popped up.
  2. i looked around the website a little after posting this and it's a great bit of information. I'll have to get out on a clear night (high hopes!) and see how close to my skies it is.
  3. A couple nights ago when there was a break in the northwest rain blanket I ran out with my 15x70s and took a look at Jupiter, m42, around auriga, and then went to locate where andromeda was and realized that I could easily pick it out with only my eyes. Pointed the binos at it and sure enough there it was. So now I want to ask, does anyone have some a good list of targets to aim for? I only have my 15x70s so it's a bit harder to scan the sky. I need to get a pair of lower mag ones soon.
  4. too bad we are opposite sides of the pond. I'm the office manager at a machine shop so I made my own L bracket with a 3/4" thick piece of aluminum. talk about sturdy
  5. My inlaws brought back some Jaffa cakes when they came back from Ireland to be at their Irish friends wedding. Then my wife and I found them once at a Super Target grocer aisle.
  6. I've seen a raspberry Jaffa cake over here in the states. Anyways that is a beautiful shot, I was proud when I was able define the horse head with only a DSLR and telephoto lens.
  7. well i used to live in Vermont and up in the hills. the closest "big" city was 30 odd miles away. Now I'm in Oregon in the heart of the willamette valley so there's a bit more pollution but still good viewing.....except for the whole pacific northwest thing where it's cloudy from now till july and rainy....I'm hoping I'll get a break soon to get the the 15x70 binos out and do some viewing.
  8. the pleiades has always been the one cluster that has always been an easily found and one of my favorites. Before i even got into imaging and viewing It was something I could always find.
  9. I have and you can see my other threads where I've photographed the whirlpool, Bodes, horse head nebula, and some others. I have a 70-200mm f2 canon IS-L which I've done my DSOs. But I have to say I was always more impressed with the views that my 18mm-50mm produced.
  10. .22 rifle oughta help teach that pesky light i would think what your doing may be the only solution.
  11. I was going to suggest going into stellarium and putting in the time you saw it and then turn on satellite orbits. Thats how I identified any satellites that crossed my images.
  12. here it is. it still needs some refining. .....annnnnd the pictures sideways .......but you can see it
