  1. Den Thankyou for the reply... I've been keen on getting a Quark... nearly got a second-hand one recently... though there seem to be 'variable' reviews. You have some fabulous images on Flickr. Certainly haven't put me off my aim... quite the contrary.
  2. Den Beautiful images.. may I ask what imaging kit you have, allied to your processing skill?
  3. Clear here.... Starlink satellites (15) just ambled over...
  4. I found this a great help when starting out two years ago... https://www.lightvortexastronomy.com/tutorial-pre-processing-calibrating-and-stacking-images-in-pixinsight.html
  5. My kit bought off this website last summer (HEQ5PRO ED80 DS PRO) is manoeuvred into the garden and brought in each session with much mud on the carpets.... Has stayed in the lounge by the patio doors Sept -now. Have just this afternoon taken it all apart and put in in the spare room upstairs... Some serious carpet cleaning tomorrow a.m. Dog wondering where to lie now it's gone! Wife less impressed with me suggesting that the guitar(s) amp/kit comes down to occupy the space... may well cost me a significant amount of flowers/chocolate/cleaning/cooking.
  6. Not quite so often said of me.... (but non-zero!!!)
  7. It just gets dark too late for me at this time of year! The hound knows the walking routine and will get us home!
  8. I'll be on one end of the lead!!!!
  9. A bottle of lager and half a bottle of red suggests that I'm snoozing this evening! Might take binoculars out when walking the dog at 22.15.
  10. Had a very pleasant time last night; guiding went better than ever, sky was great. The forecast looks good for tonight, but I think that I'll settle for what I've got and try and rebuild some goodwill with the distaff side of the family! Too many recent late nights and cold feet.
  11. Probably one of my last sessions until autumn... Looks good in Suffolk. Will test my guiding following some HEQ5 worm/backlash issues. Hopefully sorted as otherwise......!!!
  12. A couple of early attempts...!!!! M101, 240 seconds!
  13. Windy but clear in Suffolk.... May try out the 'adjusted worm' on my HEQ5PRO... Challenging, frustrating, but fun process.
  14. Good luck. I've been thinking about getting a solar scope... but haven't been brave/stupid enough to 'pull the trigger'. Will watch this with interest.
