  1. That's really nice. The 'curtain' behind horsehead is showing lots of detail.
  2. If it's USB3 then no! I believe USB3 is only good upto about 2m. Even with USB2, running 10m unpowered is not recommended. You would probably get lots of lost connection problems, if it works at all. USB is flakey at the best of times.
  3. Hi, just got in no problem from my android tablet. Could it be that you're using Ubuntu os?
  4. WOW! Absolutely stunning! I don't think I've ever seen so much detail around that target.
  5. Hi, sorry I've not replied sooner, I don't seem to be getting notifications of posts! Anyway, thanks for looking. It's just that I've heard bad things about the Chinese ones, with radial elongation amongst other things. Thanks anyway, I may keep you in mind though, if thats okay. How much were you thinking of for it; just out of interest? Clear skies.
  6. Hi, I'm after a Meade f/3.3 reducer/corrector for SCT. It must be of Japanese manufacture; not Chinese. I can pay by bank transfer or PayPal if you prefer. Thanks

  8. Looks like the 'scope coped admirably. Lovely ray detail in your image.
  9. It's nice to see some positives coming out of 2020! Lovely images.
  10. I would say that you've had a pretty stellar year, looking at your images.
  11. Very nice! Way better than my first M42. You could also try taking some shorter exposures to capture the trapezium cluster and then blend that into your existing shot with a layer mask.
  12. Very nice image Alex. It's got real depth to the nebulosity and you've controlled the trapezium cluster superbly.
  13. Try the rb digital app. If you have a library card, you can download digital versions of most magazines including S@N. HTH
  14. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. More times than I'd care to think about!
