  3. Congrats with that achievement. Especially considering the UK weather.

    Last year I was also trying to image the "ARP galaxies".

    Up to now I have recorded 207 of them.

    Regrettable since mid September the weather in Belgium was not collaborating.

  4. Thanks Martin

    Hi Roel

    Yes, it is possible, but I don't have/use Windows so it would be a case of someone giving it a go. There are recipes to do it although it isn't straightforward I suspect (I tried a build for the Mac and spent some hours on it without resolving all the issues, so went for a code distribution instead). Jocular installation isn't necessarily difficult once Python and the required libraries are installed. And then the benefit is that future releases don't need these steps and it is just a case of dropping the new release in the right place.



    Thanks Martin. I'll try the Python installation.

    Have come across another solution that is a little cheaper than two computers. It involves this device.


     You put the 'transmitter' component at the NUC at the scope and from NUC run a single Cat6 cable to the 'receiver' indoors. You then connect Keyboard and mouse to it by USB2 and Monitor by HDMI. Seemingly works over very long distances.
