  1. What you are no doubt trying to do is virtual network computing, or VNC for short. A non gamers VNC alternative: https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/home/
  2. Thank you for an excellent inspiring report.
  3. I thought that the Sky At Night program was excellent, one of the best I have seen.
  4. That’s what happens when they announce the announcement instead of just making it.
  5. My guess, for what it is worth. The Event Horizon Team on Monday will announce that they have captured the first image of the super massive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. A follow up to last years well publicised first image of a black hole.

  7. I very much enjoyed reading your report, even if a few months have gone by since you posted! Thanks for posting.
  8. I watched the first half on iPlayer. Disappointing, so far, perhaps the second half will get better.
  9. More bad news for astronomers and stargazers. Taking on SpaceX, Amazon to invest $10 billion in satellite broadband plan
  10. Why not just wait 4 to 6 weeks by which time there is a high probability that the restrictions will have been removed.
  11. Great report. Thanks for posting. I think that you would have a chance of seeing the pulsar at the heart of the Crab Nebula with your 20 if you like a little challenge.
  12. Another interesting article here https://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/observing-news/is-betelgeuse-approaching-a-crossroads/
  13. These are really interesting images. Thanks for posting.
  14. I don’t watch this stuff on principle, it encourages more of it.
  15. Take this line from the article quoted in the first post, you remove the hyperbole which now seems to be part of most of what is written online, that sentence would read something like this. Betelgeuse is a highly evolved red supergiant the type of star that could collapse and explode some time in the next 1 million years.
