  1. A cunning plan? How cunning? As cunning as a fox whose just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University?
  2. Charl, please educate this poor sap- on all your lovely images, there are two distinct edges. Is this you capturing two seperate layers of Sol 'atmosphere'?
  3. Thanks for you comments folks. MS ICE is next on the list!
  4. This is the result of my first mosaic attempt. 4 panes processed in GIMP. Today was all about getting the alignment. Removing join lines etc. is for the future. Comments, criticism and advice more than welcome.
  5. Makes sense now. I did wonder but couldn't see the strip in the images of the roof open.
  6. @Skipper Billy How does the apex of the roof seal on your obsy?
  7. Mark, A very thought provoking post. Astronomy is different things to different people. A member of my society never observes. His astronomy is the science. I observe and image but have little understanding of the numbers behind what I am seeing. We both consider ourselves astronomers. If it works for you and increases your enjoyment of what you love, go for it.
  8. Sensor artifacts? I have noticed odd patterns on bokeh effects in some more recent TV and film productions. I think it is related to the construction of the camera sensor.
  9. My southern view has been badly obstructed. I don't think the neighbours would be sympathetic enough to demolish their newly constructed retirement apartment block......
  10. I do a session showing images towards the end of my societies monthly meets. Would you mind if I included this? You would be credited of course! Thanks Matt
  11. Thanks for the info John. A lovely smooth finish to the concrete. A lovely dog also. My parents had a boxer. Beautiful but mad as a box of frogs

    The Obsey

    That is quite a neat solution and an exitingn find for you!
  13. I should imagine getting neoprene insulation offcuts stuck to your wife would be a bit of a problem....... I don't have any answers re dome manufacturers but I do have my own question John, your pier looks to be on a paving slab. If that is the case, what is the slab bedded on? I ask as I am trying to wheedle my way into pier permisson from my wife.
