    Don't worry too much Tim, It's an 11 year old thread. I'd hope it's sorted by now

    Usb hub question

    short answer is yes but as with everything quality matters. be sure to get a powered hub if this is the way you go. Personally, I prefer to have everything running straight to the pc. Just one less thing to go wrong

    There are as many ways of getting started as there are astronomers so I'll let others share their methods. One thing I will add is, try and get everything you can connected and working IN THE DAYLIGHT. That way, when it's dark, there will be far less things to sort out such as plate solving and guiding.
  7. Mate, EVERTHING I saw from Skye was the best I've ever seen. If anyone ever told me that the Crab would look like a photo, I'd have been very dubious, but there it was in all it's glory.

    This is how I see it too. You could have said Swaneske and none would have been the wiser

    Possibly . Only we humans could measure intelligence by ones ability to destroy ones self

    Aliens- do they exist??

    I was talking about intelligent life. But I'm sure you know that.

    Aliens- do they exist??

    The real question is "will it ever be possible to travel at or beyond (circumvent) the speed of light" . If the answer is no then the existance of alien life is a moot question. At least in the context of interaction.
