    Incidentally, I'm aware of certain under / over exposure elements across the board. I am still here so am unable to post process ........ I'm not even sure I want too. I'm still a beginner and I feel the images deserve to be left well alone Once I improve I can criticise myself from these

    Imaging the northern lights

    Hey all. Absolutely beautiful up here in ivalo (Finnish Lapland). I'm still here actually. Thanks for the comments. Literally my first proper Astro shots I'm pleased with. No lights since these sadly but lots of Star shots. I'll pop a couple up in a few mins. Mostly shot at f2.8 / 16mm ultra wide. ISO 320 (yes I know it's low but it works for me) 14-25 second shots.
  7. I hope this is in the right section of the site, technically a very special event for me

    Scope for kids

    Having owned a massive dob and a semi massive reflector I'm now looking at finding a scope suitable for my 4 year old to look through. Size wise the skywatcher127 is pretty good - is this recommended or is there something for a similar price but better performance
