    Cephus - Cygnus border (Samyang 135)

    This is a super mono and I am really surprised at how small the Cocoon is In fact I didn't even realise it was there!! What a cracking image and so well processed and stitched. I'd love to see the entire Bat..... but I imagine it's hard to know where to stop or in which direction to go

    SGP - Platesolving nuisance

    I do wonder how many people this affects...... they just think they can't flip and that's that ...... shame no-one felt it was worth looking into it, it's an issue that can affect so many people starting out and they'll struggle to know where to start with it. I only twigged it because I'd changed computers and had uploaded everything new onto it.

    SGP - Platesolving nuisance

    I'm thrilled that it worked I did mention on the SGP forum that there was a bug in later versions of EQASCOM but it fell on deaf ears.

    The Telescope That You Never Got On With

    For me it was the Skywatcher ED120...... really didn't like that scope and never felt that it performed properly for imaging...... the focal length was betwix and between leaving me in a no-mans land focal length I felt...... Was jolly pleased to be able to sell that I can tell you

    Mesu 200 broke

    What a pain Harry...... was there any indication that it was on the way out? I have such an odd relationship with my Mesu.... we're in a positive place at the moment. I'm sure it won't last
