  1. Oi! what's wrong with a yahoo email addy?
  2. oh yes!
  3. Hi Alex, I guess you mean the standard install rather than RC1? I've tried running Stellarium previously using the standard download as explained above (at least from v0.13.1) with the same problem. I was hoping that the very latest version fixed the problem. I've tried running as admin and compatibility mode options with the same result. With RC1 I get the following dialog (text extracted from dialog below) when running the Compatibility Troubleshooter I'd love to give Stellarium a try. Maybe it's down to not having the correct support files? Program Compatibility Troubleshooter Publisher details Issues found Incompatible Program Incompatible Program stellarium is incompatible.

  5. Hi Alex, yes, I tried angle and one other exe in the folder (maybe standard, can't remeber) this morning (latest RC1) with the same result. Thanks for the quick response though! Regards, Fireball
  6. Help! I've tried installing several versions of Stellarium since v0.13.1 and now this latest 0.15.2RC1. Every time I launch it, it simply crashes at the start-up splash screen.

  7. I was also lucky enough to see a shuttle launch on my first trip over to the US. It was STS-65 (Columbia) on 8th July 1994. I had my Ricoh XR-2 SLR with just a 28-70mm Tamron zoom to get this shot. Should really re-scan the negative for a higher-res version. An unforgettable experience.
  8. nice
  9. Same here, you just end up with bloaty blue stars that are a royal pain to process! I gave in and bought a Tak FSQ85 - nice:)
  10. maybe the S lol
  11. Yes, as Peter confirms G1 can be controlled from a PC via a standard serial port (with USB adaptor if necessary). G2 has options for either USB or Ethernet (preferred for easy assess/control via a webpage). I've had both G1 and now G2 on my MI-250 mount for 10 years now. Check out Tom Hilton's fantastic website dedicated to supporting Gemini at http://www.gemini-2.com/. There's lots of info on both versions here.
  12. I'm a long term, happy user of MaxImDL, though mainly for image capture, calibration and stacking. It's a breeze and solid software when you've got the hang of it:) I tried to use it for guiding many years ago and struggled but then PHD1 (Push Here Dummy) guiding software appeared taking over that duty. Although MaxImDL may have been improved for guiding in the meantime, I can strongly recommend PHD2 for guiding duties. A great combo IMHO. PHD2 - http://openphdguiding.org/ Good luck!
  13. It's more likely your body heat that they are detecting with their IR cameras...
  14. Enjoy! I love my FS60CB
  15. Quite a claim nowadays lol Glad your query is answered - I use TV in just the same way.
