  1. I was thinking about refurbished stuff if I knew what I was looking for
  2. Hi all I posted another thread about any programs that would with a Mac. However I've decided to go the opposite way and I'd like to buy a laptop that I can use Windows on, so I can use all the programs I'm familiar with. All that will be required of the laptop is to use sharpcap, startrails, registax, DSS, PIPP, and a couple more programs if I need them. It needs to be able to handle big avi files and have the power to stack a shed load of star trails pictures. Any help would be lovely! Thanks Chris
  3. now I've actually had problems with the usb2 ports on the old laptop, wouldn't work with them at all but if as you say the software works on mac i shouldn't have a problem
  4. I've had a ZWO Imaging camera now, just not updated what equipment I'm using on here haha my bad
  5. hi all i recently bought a mac book, and being me i forgot to actually check what software was compatible for it, software for stacking and planet imaging etc. it seems all the software i used on the old laptop such as deep sky stacker, sharp cap registax etc are all window based so can't use them on the mac. does anyone know of any software that i can use on the mac, or suggest a small laptop that i can get just for imaging and processing my pictures etc thanks chris
  6. she didn't give me the info of the location of the star in time for me to get any pictures, but if i do eventually manage to get a picture would you mind if i drop you a message so you can sort it for me? it would be a massive help thanks chris
  7. The perfect result would be the one star I'm messing about on a photoshop trial I've just got but haven't a clue what I'm doing
  8. i never thought of that, that sounds like my best best, thanks ill demo give that ago!
  9. hi all I'm heading to a star party soon and i got my friend a star named after her for her birthday, as I've said ill try and get a picture of it i was thinking the best way for her to always know which star it is was to add some diffraction spikes to it. however i haven't a clue how to do it, so does anyone know any software that can do it? note i don't have photoshop so plug ins won't really work any help would be brilliant, id hate to let her down. thanks chris
  10. my first image isnt nearly as good as that! i might have to try and do it the same way
  11. I got mine from tring astronomy, the bloke who owns the shop goes to the star party i just came back from, i was waiting ages for it though
  12. I was told i couldnt use a dslr with it, how you got that set up?
