  6. I was out shooting around Liverpool yesterday evening for a client. on the way home i noticed a small display of NLC's, so far ive missed them this season but i decided to head to a spot not far from home to see what i could capture. i actually took a time lapse of the big knot moving and twisting but it doesnt seem to have saved to my camera strange as i played it back before i packed it away. ah well will have to give it another try tonight please click on the images to see the true colours and hi res images.

  9. still great effort. if you reduce the orange saturation is PS ( filter-camera raw filter- HSL ) should help tone it down a tad

Ive just come back from the Llyn Peninsula with the kids after a few days camping great location for astro its so dark, the only place that iv been thats darker is Skye. spent a nice hour watching venus set in between the rocks.

      @Uranium235 i was top 2% on xbox for years 1&2 on destiny tracker logged over 3000 hours. just to much grinding for me the social side was fantastic and i enjoyed it while it lasted. bring on ANTHEM !

      Xbox?...lol. Try D2 on a gaming PC ;) totally different experience. No aim assist, since mouse and keys are far superior  (headshots galore!). The new updates made heroic strikes more difficult than a nightfall  (which is utterly bonkers).

  14. I’ve got few mates who shoot with it and it’s awesome. Can’t wait to get one.
  15. The BATIS is next on my list. Dave. Unfortunately I’m in work tonight but I’m heading back on Saturday with the family for a sleepover so I will sneak out if it’s clear. The Sony raws are really nice and my laptop just about handles the 13 vertical panes !! Im really pleased with the Sony glad I’ve moved systems eventually. Dan
  16. I went out last night to a spot which pretty good to catch aurora if theres a geomagnetic storm, there was a slight purple tinge early on but the sky was not dark enough to really capture it on camera. ive recently got my Sony a7rii and last night was really the first real go i had of using it. unfortunately i think ive forgotten to take the steady shot off so as the wind has blown slightly the sensor has shifted during a couple of exposures but you really cant tell unless your a pixel peeper . so heres my first MW of the year with mynew camera I also captured this young couple sitting under Jupiter enjoying their technology rather than the sky both images resized down to 60% quality as the files on this camera are huge!!! SONYA7RII ZEISS 24-70 F4 for the pano 12 vertical panes ISO 3200 20seconds each
  17. bag packed, two night wild camp with the new camera. exciting times!

  20. @faulksy youd be mad to sell it with the EP's for that price. sell the scope and EP's separately. if need be mike i'll sell them for you pal
  21. thats a great way to test it Dave did you come up it with that idea?
  22. make sure your on polaris! i can get 300 secs @ 200mm with my star adventure just by placing polaris in the center of the cross hairs. it can do 420 secs @ 24mm
