  1. Ha ha. Yes the better you get the more scrutiny you receive . Tom.
  2. Excellent detail Brendan. The stars look a bit soft but the nebula is fantastic. Super work. Tom.
  3. In case I did not say this already , I think the Ha was perfectly added in this pic. Not overwhelming, and so delicate. Top marks Maurice. Tom.
  4. Looks like it was a USB cable issue. That’s the third in about 5 months now. Same symptoms and same fix. Next time it happens I ll ask Olly to put in one of the old cables in case it was just a dry contact or bad connection issue. Tom
  5. That's a beauty Yves. I like the bright look and the colours of the browns are excellent.
  6. Damn it I m still crashing the Cooler somehow. This was after restarting the PC when it hung the first time tonight. Any ideas anyone? This bit seems like I might need to re install the driver or revert to the older Windows version Property write ASCOM.Atik.Camera SetCCDTemperature is not implemented in this driver.

  7. Did it work for you? I hope to find out later tonight. Tom
  8. Yes mine were set to Enabled. I'll be watching for the next Windows update to see if it resets it. I got there by a little different menu so here is what I had if anyone wants to see. Tom
  9. Hi All and especially Janos. I m having or was and are now again having similar issues. Using my Atik 11000 and SGP, the Cameras cooling would go from the -20/-20 display for Set point v Current reading would drop to 0/0 and any download would go on indefinitely. This would happen every 40-60 mins approx. Olly had replaced the USB cable for me and it seemed to work for a while, then it happened again 2 nights ago. And in what seems like the reason I had to get Olly to power up my PC as it was down. It only seems to go down if the power is off from the site / UPS for 8hrs plus, or if there was a Windows update. Time for me to check the USB in the device manager. Thanks for the tip Julian and Steve. Blank blank Windows.... Tom.
  10. Lovely strong reds, smooth too, and lots of detail in the bubble itself. Super! Tom.
  11. Great pic Olly. So much dust. Super data in this so I ve having fun playing with it. Tom.
  12. Gorgeous Peter. I always love seeing new objects too. Tom.
  13. Fantastic Yves, I really like this. RGB mosaics are fun though Tom
  14. Excellent pic. Nicely processed. Tom
