    its Bird, it a plane, 23-10-18

    There is a Moon tonight, who'd a thought it! Last night superb, tonight nothing at all, someone nicked it. Best look on the Interweb for a likely seller. Rich

    An Incredible Region

    WOW, cracking image!
  4. Interested to follow the replies. If this was a normal daylight image shot RAW I would systematically bring down/darken the 'highlights' as in burnt out sun or other some such.
  5. A real place in my heart. My dad took me there for my 7th birthday 'treat' and in the control room I got to push a button that made the thing move (clearly a planned move) I then got "miles" of punch tape that was spewing out following this. RIP Dad, thanks Danny. PS PM sent. Best Rich
  6. Completed twice, absorbed something new every time. Well worth doing, very well put together and presented. Rich
  7. Hi, I have a 'duff' left eye, it captures light and enables a muzzy form. My right eye is somewhat OK with spec's. I would not "invest" in a bino setup without have my opthalmologist specify exactly the parameters of both eyes. ie for me, telescope, right eye, as left eye would be useless, or even a hindrance when used together. They say that they can 'correct' my left eye, but at my age my brain won't accept it.. Go figure... Welcome, Rich

    For those using Win 10....

    Well last weekend I left a new but unused laptop at a location that has proper high speed and connected it to their network in the hope of downloading every available update for every chunk of OS or software installed. It is still 'downloading/cycling' and it does have enough Ram/Disk.
  9. Midsummer camping in the Lake District........ Perfick
  10. I've got 3 of those ball heads on the left, they easily handle a Batt Gripped 7DII and Sigma 150-600 Sport lens which is around 5kg dead weight not counting poor positioning. I also have a derivative of that tripod in the back of the ML, great tripod, but my next one will not have twist lock legs, the internals of the locks were no match for my ham handedness. Rich
  11. Borrow it again! Great shots.
  12. Nope Toothy, you are not missing anything, that was exactly my first reaction. (ps any news on T/Brush) I do have a 150-600 Sport but have not tried deep sky, Moon is good on static tripod so give it a go at least. Rich

    PC build for processing

    One thing that you could never do, is, process images from the sofa. Day or Night! You need to be 'close'. I use what Victor uses. Rich
