  1. So I thought the purpose of EAA was to not have any post-processing but to basically show the pictures as they appeared "live" on the screen? If you process in PixInsight, or any other program really, doesn't this then qualify as astrophotography? John
  2. Pleased (sort of) to update that I'm back observing. I wiped out the Mac, installed a fresh copy of Sierra, and I'm back working. Would love to know what combination of updates or programs, etc causes the problem, but for now, I'm keeping things very vanilla so that I can share the universe. Nothing beats this program btw as far as I'm concerned, that is why I am willing to wipe out my Mac just to get this working again. john
  3. Being hard on Paul? Look, Paul has done a PHENOMENAL JOB with Lodestar Live and StarLight Live. In fact such a fantastic job, that if the program stops working, its devastating to someone like me that relies on it simply to observer, that is all i'm saying. I'm going to actually try and just wipe clean and start fresh. I'm not sure what was updated, since I only updated to Sierra as a possible FIX for the issue with SLL and it didn't work. I'll keep the folks posted here, as I know of at least 1 other person with this issue, so I'm not alone. John
  4. My 3.3 version now keeps crashing on start up! I just updated the log on a similar issue on the BitBucket site. I'm extremely concerned about this program now, as I don't see any updates there on that site since April 2017!! I'm so incredibly disappointed, as I consistently speak highly of this program, and the LSX2 on blogs, forums, podcast etc and now its just not working. I have been restoring my Mac and it worked fine for 2 sessions. Now it won't start. This happened one time before, and from the logs it seemed it was related to the FITS directory and it was a fix for me to get work

  6. That is great color! Very nice. John
  7. The Horizon is going to give you a very wide FOV, more than the Ultrastar, and you may want or need a corrector for the newt, but good thing is they usually aren't very expensive. The Horizon will also have cooling. Now, I have not had experience with a cooled vs. uncooled camera directly, but what I have read is if your keeping the exposures down to say a minute, cooling isn't necessary. "Necessary" is the opinion of course of other video astronomy folks, so it depends on the eye of the beholder. For my EAA, I try and stick with the shortest possible exposures, most 30-45 sec, from time to t
  8. Galaxies were never something I really observed, until electronically assisted observing came along and now i use the LSx2 to view almost any I choose! Galaxies are great, and you have some nice grabs there. Well done! john
  9. Wonderful sketches! Thanks for posting up.. john
