  1. Good lord I last wrote here in 2012 a car is essential but to be honest if you can find an area with no street lights away from east London, Colchester and other town areas were the cameras don’t do tooooo bad. I’m in Ig10 area and I’ve gotten some good star trails and such from my garden. Margaret Roding as knobby said is next on my list (with knobby) all welcome
  2. That’s if the skies ever clear !!!

  7. 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
  8. 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.

  13. 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
