  1. Hi Hugh, For my sins, I was a professional CAD engineer for many years. SolidWorks, SolidEdge & Catia 3D. Still wish I'd been given a career direction into software development though. Steve
  2. Thanks Gina. Had a good night's sleep last night, which seemed to help a tad. Steve
  3. Hi Hugh, It seems the project is has been thrown a bit of a curve ball. I have recently arrived back from an extended holiday and have fallen foul of a nasty bacterial infection that has knocked me sideways somewhat. I will have a look at the updated info and continue the build once I'm fit and well to proceed the soldering tasks. Kind regards Steve

    Hi again 👋

    Hi, and a very warm welcome back to the Lounge Steve
  14. Hi James, Great to see you are on the final throes of finishing your project. Have you been able to use your obsy to observe / image during the recent clear skies? Steve
  15. Fabulous project and well done completing what you had designed to do. I am part way through fully automating my Pulsar Dome, The last hurdle is to automate the opening & closing of the shutter. Steve
  16. Tremendous amount of detail there Steve. We've had a great run of clear skies recently and you have certainly used this time to gather the data. The processing is, as always, top drawer. Steve

    Hi from rainy Wales

    Hi Glob, and a very warm welcome to the Lounge Steve
  18. It's good to know someone is taking notice of LP. Bring in a light pollution tax and you would see darker skies Steve
  19. Hi, and a very warm welcome to the Lounge
  20. Hi, and a very warm welcome to the Lounge Really great to see you jumping into astrophotography from the start, no mean feat, as it's as complicated as taking photographs can get. Regarding field flatteners, these are usually dedicated to telescopes and if you plump for the Evostar 72ED then a field flattener would be a consideration. One piece of advice I give to any budding astrophotographer is to purchase the book "Making Every photon Count." It is written by a member of SGL "Steppenwolf" and is considered "the bible" for budding AP enthusiasts. You can purchase it here from FLO Steve
  21. Hi Mark, and a warm welcome to the Lounge. You live in a beautiful part of Northern Island, a real treasure. Steve
  22. Thanks Hugh I'll start on this as soon as I can and complete it on my return. Steve
  23. Hi Dan, and a very warm welcome to the Lounge Steve
  24. Very impressive images David. I can see you are going to love that new Atik Steve
  25. That's brilliant Hugh, I've not ventured any further from my side I'm afraid. I've been suffering with a chest infection, but on the mend now. I'm away for a few weeks and will start to build on my return, which shouldn't take too long. Just one note, I wouldn't mind seeing a stripboard layout for the relay board. Steve
