  1. To be fair I know it is easy to label things as "space station" and "bio lab" but to be honest can anyone actually explain what it maybe? The easiest is to say anomoly, lense flare or swamp gas. I will add that it does seem to be far from anything, assuming there is anything on Mars in the first place. As the guy in the video I linked too above states it is quite large. My own opinion on anything `out there` would be that of course it is denied as if something was really out there then imagine how much would have to change down here Who knows until... until I go there in person I cannot beleive it is or is not manmade.
  2. Looking good. That is a better image than supplied by Nat Geo This type of activity makes me want to get my scope in as short a possible time frame.
  3. Yes I have read about it. It certainly looks as if it is not natural. Is this viewable via a scope? Here are the co-ordinates 71 49'19.73"N 29 33'06.53"W (in google earth - mars that is) Also here is the video YouTube - ‪Bio Station Alpha on Mars. The latest discovery by David Martines. Original Video‬‏ Rgds

  5. I wonder what folks thoughts are on the PS Eye (Playstation Eye Camera). It has amazing specs and it is possible to download a PC Driver. I used to use one for monitoring the cats at the backdoor I do not have the knowledge if it is useful for astrophotography but I do have 3 of them and would use one if needed. SPECS: Connectivity USB 2.0 (type-A) Resolution 640×480 pixels @ 60 Hz[1] 320×240 pixels @ 120 Hz[1] Dimensions 80mm × 55mm × 65mm 3.25" × 2.12" × 2.5" DRIVER Sony PS3Eye Camera DirectShow Capture Source Filter *Update* v3.0.0.0901 AlexP’s Weblog hth
  6. aww thanks folks for the replies so far. I cannot stop viewing peoples pictures of their viewings, this forum truly is fantastic.
  7. Hello everyone. My first post of many I hope. I do have lots of questions and with the Astronomy arena being so wide in choices I hope to read a lot and learn a lot as a member. I must also thank Martin from First Light Optics. Being a visitor to Devon (it could become my home in the very near future) and being in awe of the clear skies over Dartmoor at night I feel the time is right to actually purchase a Telescope. I have been wanting to do this for so long but with the grim light pollution in London (home) I have always talked my self out of it..... I digress. I took it upon myself to visit First Light Optics - without ringing first! - On arrival it dawned on me that it was not a retail shop however after calling Martin was more than happy to come down and talk to me and advise me on my first setup. This is going the extra mile for the customer as far as I am concerned (this would not have happened in a London outlet). Martin's advice was fantastic and a real eye opener - something that I will repay by way of purchase from FLO in the very near future. I will go into more specifics in the EQ help forum. So my first post is written and I would not be here had Martin not advised membership amongst other things. So thanks Martin and thanks forum, heres looking to a great future. Thanks to you all in advance. John (Eccles_Explorer)
