  1. Night folks...time to dream of hunting the rubber rabbits at the Quarry where we shoot...
  2. Just making a big mug of coco...with a big dash of Woods rum.
  3. Now working on what I hope is the Veil Nebula as it is now above a tree in my garden..
  4. Best book on science: Bill Bryson 'A Short History of Nearly Everything'. Witty and precise, make you remember what you are reading.
  5. The great thing about rubber rabbits and foam foxes is that they don't move...but I can still manage a clear miss...
  6. I need to wrap up by 02:30 as I also have field archery in the morning and hunting rubber rabbits when you are bleary eyed is no fun.
  7. Set up and running again on the North America nebula to see if I can get more data. Had to throw away 13 subs of 60 last night due to space junk. Once Cygnus is a little bit higher I will have a go at the Veil. Again the White Cat + Canon 650D on the iOptron CEM25P. Did a two star align and it is bang on target.
  8. It was the 'silent running'..I'm ex-RN Submarine Service. Windy in Norfolk but hoping to have another imaging session tonight after moon set.
  9. Silentrunning...were you in boats?
  10. Some images from last night using the iOptron CEM25P with a White Cat 50mm and a modified Canon 60 D. 37 x 1 minute subs, at ISO 3200 for the N. American and 25 x 1 minute subs at ISO 1600 for Sadr & M29 area. I did have more but there is so much space junk up there i had to throw out a load.

  13. Done, just doing aome darks. Just calculated the dew point and it is around 0 C at present, so no dew on the OTA or camera but definite wetness in the air... can also see the loom of sunrise to the East.. ''night folks
  14. I was fortunate as I inherited some money which paid for it.
