  1. Very nice, it brings the memory of watching it back
  2. That is really good despite the poor conditions. You've got the terminator really nicely
  3. Really useful to see the comparison between the two days very nice image on the 5th
  4. Great programme - really informative
  5. Hi Colin Hope the weather, for clouds, was good for you. Hopefully the first observing event of many! Happy New Year Rob
  6. Just come in from observing the partial eclipse with a very nice pair of opticron 10 x 50 (tripod mounted). (Total cloud cover now) They showed the whole of the partial phase really well and showed Tycho, Grimaldi, Copernicus and Kepler as real 'show-off' items. Very nice observing session, if too short. Now trying to warm up -brrr Rob
  7. Very nice and clear image, bearing in mind what you said about the conditions that is really nice Rob
  8. Hi Shane There is a partial eclipse of the Moon at the moment - it should be all over by 9.30pm the 'best' bit will be for the next hour and a bit. At maximum 10 percent of the bottom of the Moon should be in shadow. Where I am I can only catch glimpses through heavy cloud. Hope this helps Rob
  9. Doug, I really like the capture you've done on Babbage - the highlighting and shading really show it nicely in relief. I can almost be there watching the minutes tick by waiting for the crater edges to be fully highlighted - well impressed
  10. Alan, that is really good, there is a real sense of depth to Clavius
  11. Perfect capture of the Mare Crisium, really nice image
  12. Very nice indeed - you've captured the Rima Marius really well Rob
  13. Sorry everyone, I became confused as to how to attach thumbnails hence here they are for the above post. I'm blaming it on the weather! So, the background is these were taken with a Skywatcher 127mm Supatrack SCT and the Meade LPI. First time I've been able to do any imaging since July It was a nightmare getting set-up - one of the tripod furrels became loose so the alinement wasn't perfect - and is showed in the tracking!! The first of these is a single frame shot from the sequence and the second is a stack of 9 images from 25 in Registax v4. I have deliberately done no further processing on these just to show what the initial results look like. The only thing done was to 'flip' the final image. All in all pretty happy with these although I will probably have a bit of a processing 'play' with them. Gassendi_Flipped_2812_09_1730_9stk.bmp Hopefully the thumbnails should now be here (fingers crossed) Rob
  14. They are really good crisp images well done - esp like the last one of the Mare Imbrium area Rob
  15. Hi Just a couple of shots of the Gassendi area taken on the 28th at 17.30 - I just had half an hour and it was pretty poor weather with heavy cloud creeping in. Anyway, these were taken with a Skywatcher 127mm Supatrack SCT and the Meade LPI. First time I've been able to do any imaging since July It was a nightmare getting set-up - one of the tripod furrels became loose so the alinement wasn't perfect - and is showed in the tracking!!

  16. Hi all Quest (Freeview Ch 38) are trailing a documentry on the Sun they are broadcasting on New Years Eve - 9pm Rob
  17. Was out in the snow for about an hour and a half last night from 4pm looking at the moon through a Chrissy prezzy of 10 x 50's - thanks FLO!! Very impressed with image quality - to make life easier they were on a tripod and I was sitting on a Lidl 'ironing stool'. The contrast on the moon was amazing. Happy times ahead.... Rob
  18. Given the bad conditions that is an amazing image Michael Rob
  19. Looks like Lidl is having a 'gadget day' this Thursday LIDL what with the mini planeterium, USB microscope and the zooom bino's. Now when's the Bresser scope going to appear? Rob
  20. I'm speechless, amazing set of photo's.
  21. Don't think this really fits in the observing section just a big cheer just spent an amazing hour and a half on my first ever view of Jupiter - amazing could see Io, Europa and Callisto as well. Just amazed, spent time changing magnifications and playing with different colour filters to see the effects. 127mm Skywatcher Mak Saturn still sticks in the memory for a first view earlier in the year mind but what a view this evening!
  22. Hi Tinvek, that would be great - much appreciated, I've been muttering to myself all day about dratted computers etc. Did anyone see the 3pm (UK) press conference - they were folks who'd done a really amazing job and the main focus of all the press was 'why no plume' and this meant the mission had failed in some way. Take a look at the Associated Press article on the Orange page to see what I mean. The mission folks were really excited about the unexpected, they detected Sodium. Good on them a real success story.
  23. I lost the stream to NASA.tv at the '5 minutes to impact' mark. Hopefully they'll replay a good part of it in the Press Conference at 3pm Uk time. It was looking really good as well...
  24. Hi Just came across this on BBC Radio 7: BBC - BBC Radio 7 Programmes - A Brief History of the End of Everything the first episode will be available until Sunday, second until Monday etc. Apart from co-authoring 'Turn Left at Orion' he comes across as very informative and having a good sense of humour. 15 minutes an episode - well worth a listen.
