  1. 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

  9. could always buy a coma corrector, the baader and skywatcher ones do a pretty good job, that would allow yo to go down to F4.5 or even F4.

    Alan your images are truly amazing. great work and dedication
  22. new pictures up tonight form a -8 trip to the lakes 

  23. there is no reason to be using it that low unless you have less well built tripod. my profile picture was taken in 25MPH winds on Anglesey, the manfrottos are absolute tanks even in wind. legs fully extended = polar scope at nice height and makes finding targets a lot easier. OP needs to make sure that the head they choose is capable of handling the weight of the camera lens combo. no point in having a cheap head that wont hold friction on a tripod that will hold 9kg.
