  1. Hey I've seen a thing called an Astro clip. (google it) Connects iPhone to scope. Anyone know if the iPhone is any good? And another products like this astro clip. ??
  2. Anyone heard about this being seen in the uk tonight??? What sort of time ??
  3. Hey I'm trying to process and stack photos. But I get an "out of memory" error. Is this a problem with my computer? Can I fix this?? If so how?? (without upgrading my computer) Kind regards.
  4. Ok so I get my new scope next month... What else do I need? Filters? Eyepieces? Barlows? What about neximage? Worth getting?? But I will be also getting a dslr..
  5. Haha. Well post your results on this thread also mate so I can see your photos !! Deal?
  6. Amazing work dude. You want tips? Ok.. Don't run with scissors !! Apart from that I don't think you need any major advice at the moment but buy a sodium filter. This will remove all street light in your photos. Google it. Might help A little. I've copied some info below that may help you in other areas.... Good luck and I'm going to keep an eye out for more of your fantastic photos... Other filters can also be used for specialized purposes to improve astrophotos. Minus Violet filters filter out excessive blue wavelengths for refractors and camera lenses that are not apochromatic. Because these non-apo lenses do not focus the blue light at the same focus as the rest of the spectrum, they appear as out-of-focus blue halos around stars. The minus violet filter can remove most of this blue fringing and yield smaller stars. Hydrogen-alpha filters come in three varieties - cutoff, wide narrow band, and very narrow band. Cutoff filters block all of the light below a particular wavelength. A hydrogen-alpha cutoff filters blocks all of the light below the hydrogen-alpha wavelength of 656.3nm and usually pass 90 percent of the light above that wavelength. These filters are good for use with hydrogen-alpha emission nebula under light polluted skies. Wide Narrow band hydrogen-alpha filters pass the wavelengths in a narrow band, typically 6 to 12 nanometers, around the wavelength of interest. These filters greatly increase the contrast between the hydrogen-alpha emission nebula. They are really recommended for use with CCD cameras, but can be used with a modified DSLR. Fog Filters are "artistic" filters that are used to produce an aesthetic effect such as enlarged stars that make it easier to see the bright stars that make the outline of a constellation. --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.551911,-1.819813
  7. Just wondering whats the best DSLR camera to use for long exposure photos. In not a millionaire till I win the lottery at the weekend so what's a great affordable camera. My limit is about £1000.00 --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.551915,-1.819643

  10. The main function I believe is a much larger database and also with the pro you can use the wifi to operate your scope. Tell skysafari what you want to see and then it will point the scope for you. --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.551992,-1.819720
  11. Do you think we will ever see something hit the moon and leave a crater of a large size?? What would it look like do you think? --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.562333,-1.769971
  12. Wolfram astronomy app- Anyone downloaded this?? What other apps do you use and that are good.? Kind regards David --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.562342,-1.769857
  13. What is weins law? How do I find the temperature of the object and why do u need to know the peak wavelength of that object? Hope you guys can help --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.562281,-1.770081
  14. Fate my friend.. For your loss of time the stars shall shine brighter for when you are ready to view them. Appreciate what power you hold to look deep into heaven itself. Travel through the oceans of stars and navigating towards unseen lands. I hope you sleep well as come the weekend, you will have a lifetime to be amazed every single clear night of your life. Good night little fella :-) --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.552053,-1.819778
  15. Just wondering who and how many people are the members of the Swindon Stargazers? :-) --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.562356,-1.770202
