    Adobe creative cloud is only £12 a month and you get lightroom and photoshop for that.you also have access to adobe portfolio where you can build your own free website. I tried paintshop pro couldn’t get on with it for me I’d choose PS over any of the others out there it’s a lot easier to navigate.

  17. So last night i headed out to a spot thats not so popular very little known and hardly and shots with astro done. There was an amber aurora alert for this location but when i arrived it was clear but just clouding over. It was a long 3.5hour wait. lucky the car wasn't to far away as it was raining at times. spent around 8 hours at this location, and headed back the car at 4:45AM (2hour drive home) only to be met by some local police officers saying there have been reports of suspicious behavior they intrigued by what we where doing. once we explained what it was we where doing they where more than happy to get back in their warm vans as 2 of them where shivering while taking details Milkyway over a lovely little Tarn by Danny Kenealy, on Flickr

    Cygnus test

    yes its the skywatcher star adventurer. Great bit of kit when i can get out and use it. im going to make more of an effort this year to get out and use it. im pretty happy with the exposure lengths from the sticking polaris in the x cross hairs of the polar scope. im also going to try some work from home this year once i get LP filter sorted for the 70-200mm F2.8 lens, i may even buy a little APO to stick on it kids are getting older now so im able to get back out more for long nights.
