    Cheap DSLR camera

    "Pending payment" being the operative phrase in barter transactions! Rich

    The Moon 24-10-18

    The RGB is the best of the lot IMHO. but why? Feel free to fire a broadside John, we'll still get along fine. The first B/W series are so far over cropped/zoomed that all I see are 'speckled' Mare and overall 'fuzziness' in what could be acceptable pictures if only zoomed in to just before the 'point of pixelation'. They are way over 'fuzzy' and the last one B/W is just a mix of white/grey. I have the same problem. Right now I have a stackable set from the other night, with the 7DII and 150-600S, I've tried various PPs and so far I have not got it right. Normally your Moon shots are great, what gives? Best, Rich

    Camera advice please.

    With all respect and politeness do not consider anything modified in your current state; I don't buy "grubby", but if the rubber grips are smooth I don't buy them either! They have been very well used!!! I do take 'punts' on camera stuff. As per Alan above. Rich

    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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Completed twice, absorbed something new every time. Well worth doing, very well put together and presented. Rich
  12. 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.
  14. Midsummer camping in the Lake District........ Perfick
  15. 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
  16. Borrow it again! Great shots.
  17. 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

    Stargazing on Vamizi Island Part Two

    WOW ! I have now read the other report and followed umptitudes of links. I have come to the conclusion that you will need me on your next expedition. Great stuff. 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

    Good to see John, nice and sharp.

    Dual imaging rig

    Well done indeed. It looks great!
  22. Lovely group picture. I don't need to use my very wide lenses to make things look as though they are ready to fall over, I can do this with a 600mm!

    Telescope for sketching

    Hubble would be good, it has all the features that you are likely to ever wish for.

    First go at Milky Way

    I've got no chance of downloading a tif. Upload a low res jpeg into your post. PLS
