  1. I was very happy with the star I was given. I realised it did not have any reality, but appreciated the sentiments of the gift giver, who saw it as as a nice way to reflect their wishes towards me while at the same time reflecting my interest in astronomy.
  2. How long were the exposures?
  3. As Oscar Wilde once said..."There's only one thing worse than being over-engineered....etc"
  4. Comes across as a bit 'passive aggressive', so may put some off.
  5. There is some more good news in that. Once the Mrs has gone, you can observe as much as you like!
  6. Isn't iso just a measure of the gain applied to the signal / photons captured by the pixels of the sensor chip? Exposure time / the number of photos captured will determine the signal to noise ratio. Changing iso will just stretch of compress this signal...... Won't it? Could be wrong.....
  7. Wow! Sounds like good value. A Galaxy for the price of a star!!
  8. That is marvelously simple! Do you think the leads could be made longer, say 10 to 20 metres?
  9. A program called Format Factory is worth a look. It's free, can do all sorts of conversions and seems to work well... http://www.pcfreetime.com/formatfactory/index.php?language=en
  10. I was in a state of watching it and not watching it at the same time.
  11. Take note of the word 'may' in the headline. Sensation seeking journalism!
  12. Don't worry about updating. It will still work a treat. Try it and see before you even think of doing an update.
  13. You could get a Canon 1000D body on ebay for under £100. It works fine for me and you can use all the usual free software to control it remotely.
