    Just seen Uranus

    Nice work. I have yet to see this one...tried recently but could not locate it! You could actually make out the color? How easily?

    New to astrophotography

    Welcome! I'm looking forward to seeing some of your shots in the coming weeks/months/years.

    Hello from Southern Spain

    Hello and welcome to the SGL. Enjoy your stay!
  5. Any tips? I feel like I'm just randomly turning the dials with little clue as to how I'm supposed to be using them. The instructions say to bring the image into focus first (until the sun's edge is sharp) and then work on tuning. That's roughly what I've been doing.

    Good report. I feel like the moon is something that I take for granted...going to try and spend some more time with it this year. Living in a light polluted area it only makes sense!

    Wow the full res shot is amazing. The sharpness and clarity is unbelievable. Good job!

    Cloudy Skies every night

    If it makes you feel any better, we have had several weeks of grey skies over here in Northern California. It's not supposed to happen here! I recently bought a new solar scope and am desperate to log some quality time at the EP. EDIT: Adding some proof!

    Hello from Nottingham

    Welcome to the SGL! I did quite a bit of research on the NexStar Evolution scopes...came close to buying one a few years ago. Ultimately went with a big Dob but I'll be interested to hear your take on the Evolution if you end up getting it.
  10. Wow these are incredible shots. Blows mine out of the water. Great clarity.
