  1. Interestingly I was talking to a seasoned astronomer who was describing the day he met a guy who does really detailed sketches of DSOs with far more detail than you would expect.

    He said his pupils were much larger than normal.

    It's anecdotal, but I wonder whether there is some truth behind the story?

    you know theres other subsctances that are not that legal that can open your pupils and allow you to see things with a lot more "detail" lol:D

  2. Welcome to the lounge, I have enough trouble imaging on the relatively stable surface of the earth, god knows how you would even start trying to image whilst dangling from a balloon in the upper atmosphere! Will be following your project with great interest, good luck I think your gonna need it! Lol

  3. Don't get me wrong the moon is an amazing sight but believe me there will come a time when u will dread that big cheesy ball coming up over the horizon, specially when your dso hunting etc! Get stellarium downloaded and u will be able to see when the moons up next.

  4. er mine are called 100, 80 and 8 and soon to be 66.

    I have such an original imagination at times.

    The Obsy will be also names "The Obsy"


    ooh if we are naming obsy's when i do evetually get one ,mine shall be called "THE KACK TELESCOPE" for obvious reasons!:)

  5. was wondering the other day we know that nothing can escape from a black hole not even light,but then i watched something that said black holes emit jets of radiation,how can this be if not even light can escape? is there a sweet spot in the centre that is weaker so allows the radiation to escape and if so wouldn't there be a white dot where that sweet spot is where light is managing to escape or am i barking up the completely wrong tree (which is my guess!)
