    Hi from Birmingham :)

    Hey! Welcome to SGL. Hope you find this place as interesting an informative as I do Clear skies!
  2. Ticking along...

  3. I suppose it's stable from a user point of view - but from my system administration point of view and a kernel point of view - it's a shocking mess! And... what's all the integration of Ubuntu? If you're going to use Linux... you might as well use Linux and not run it through windows!
  4. To be brutally honest I'm not surprised. Avast takes ownership of so many vital system directories and renders them inaccessible to any user. Windows 10 is such an unstable operating system - it's like we are going back to the days of Windows 95 with a broken shell then a poor GUI slapped on the top... I am a Unix user - so I wouldn't recommend any version of Windows to anybody since Windows 7. That's my 2c... :)

    Starry Night 7

    I use SkySafari 6 Pro on my Apple iPad, personally I prefer this app to anything else that I have ever used (incl. Stellarium, SkySafari Pro 4/5 and TheSky 4/5/6/X). I do have Starry Night Pro Plus 6, but because I run Linux on my main Workstation - I cannot use it! The integration of the PGC catalogue is very useful as I have been able to find galaxies that most other programs don't include - my friends have been very impressed with this as well. Personally, because I carry my iPad everywhere and it has a very long battery life - this is the perfect solution for me. Yeah... I know its £50 for an app... but it's a good app!

    Stellarium

    What kind of problems are you having? Is is GPU related?

    TheSky6 Professional

    Hi; Does anyone have a copy of TheSky6 that they are willing to sell for a reasonable price? It has to be the professional edition. I would be grateful if anyone could help. Regards, Emil

    Super Blue Moon!

    Agreed! I have been asked to do a BBC Essex Radio interview explaining that this moon will apparently affect peoples behaviour and mood?! They would also like to know at what time we can see it... Obviously, I know that we will, unfortunately, not be able to see it in the UK. It just seems to get better as I go along! Ta, Emil
