    Excellent stuff yet again What are you using to create the animated time lapse once you've taken all your exposures? (How many do you take?)

    The Lyrids are coming

    Best one for me was more like a fireball in the Bootes area, heading down towards the horizon. Bright green, was slow moving, more a trickle than a streak if light. Seemed to break up too

    Seen many Lyrids?

    I agree, very clear here too, best I've seen for a long time. Shame we spent it waiting for a poor show

    Bright green fireball in the south just now, heading down towards the horizon. Totally different direction to what I'd expect

    PhD semaphore error

    I've downloaded more up to date Ascom drivers and it hasn't happened again since (touch wood). If it does, I'll get a shorter USB cable

    PhD semaphore error

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this So I could have my laptop indoors while I do my imaging, I bought a 5m usb extension to use with my qyh5 and PhD. However every time I connect to phd I get a box saying "error 131 semaphore signal timed out", but I don't get the error when I use the supplied shorter usb cable. Is this error appearing because the usb extension needs to be an active one?

    Another excellent image LJ, seems like you've been spoilt with plenty of clear skies lately?

    retaining colours in the stars

    My stars turn out all white also, I've heard lowering the ISO will help as mentioned above. Been using 800 lately, so will drop to 400 next time I'm out imaging
