  1. Watch it dock https://www.nasa.gov/nasalive
  2. Another successful launch for Space X, it still amazes me the science that goes into launching and then landing the first stage on a moving barge in the ocean. Did anyone notice lightening in the background before launch?
  3. Cloudy so not a great spectacle, here’s some shots of it though.
  4. Ariane’s turn tonight 21:00
  5. Recent shots, frosty scope and stargazing buddy.
  6. I have a light on a street about 100m away that always seems to distract me, I put up a parasol to block it. My neighbours have bright bedroom lights and never even seen to be in them!! I have a retractable washing line that I extend right across the back, clip on old blankets and duvet covers then prop up with 3-4 m long pieces of wood. My house still reflects a lot of the light so it’s not perfect but it stops the direct bright lights.
  7. Maybe part of stacking and processing. Didn’t notice before that.
  8. I set the moon on an old shot of mine of the Owl Cluster, I quite like this as a bit of Astro Art
  9. That’s a shame, but at least your grand daughter is ok. There were a few more than that, but pretty much full. I’m still buzzing.
  10. Yeyyyyy, Astronomy in a dressing gown. Brrrrr but i got it. I’m really chuffed how the pics turned out, set up really quick, dodging the trees I was right up against the fence in a place I don’t normally set up. Didn’t have the battery for the motors as it was still on charge in the house, extremely rough polar alignment, bum perched on the edge of the guinea pig hutch, focus was trial and error as I couldn’t take long enough exposures to fine tune it due to no battery, so all in all, very happy my bladder is weak enough to make me get up at 05:00.
  11. Here’s some pics of another safe launch including a nosy bird.
  12. What an amazing bloke, inspirational, well educated, polite, humble, the list goes on. I feel privileged to have met him and listened to him.
  13. Another one tonight https://spaceflightnow.com/2019/01/19/live-coverage-delta-4-heavy-readied-for-launch-from-vandenberg-air-force-base/
  14. And here we go again. Ariane’s turn at 20:30 ish https://spaceflightnow.com/2018/12/04/ariane-5-va-246-mission-status-center/
  15. All seems fine. Xmas teddy hanging up
