  1. Thank you all! Cheers, I haven't had a working laptop for ages now and life has got in the way a bit but now I have dusted off everything I hope to get out a bit more and I can borrow my kids laptop too so fingers crossed I will have more to post soon. Thanks, I took these from my backyard in Spain.
  2. Thanks guys, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. It was a good night watching this.
  3. Hey all, it's been a while since I have posted anything so I thought I would share some of my eclipse pictures from the other night.
  4. The thing is in Spain, it can be an absolute minefield to buy any property and even more so a nice rural one. In the end we chose not to buy a rural property in Spain even though we found many we liked simply because of the legal situation surrounding the land and such. There is so much that needs to be considered and the market is already flooded with cheap properties so it is going to be difficult even before you start. That said any extra selling point can and will help so definitely worth adding the extra info. Short of taking an ad out in an astromag or maybe even ABS I don't know wh
  5. It just shows up on a 50mm lens and camera, would be better without all the LP too.
  6. Last night after a couple of unsuccessful nights prior managed to get an image in a 30 second exposure using a 50mm lens and my camera. Nothing spectacular though and my tracking was off but may iron out the kinks and scale the lens up.
  7. I have been meaning to point the camera in that direction and see if anything shows up. It has a nice long tail. Seems to have brightened considerably too, I have read reports of as much as mag 8. Worth a shot at least.
  8. Not to give away any spoilers but the show Expanse kind of deals a little bit with this. Absolutely no idea how much research they have put into it but worth a watch.
  9. Not the best timing I suppose, what part of Spain are you heading to?
  10. So Leonids peaked last night? How did that get by without a mention.

  11. It's a lovely book isn't it? I received a copy as a gift too, very interesting from a perspective you don't get to see too often. Enjoy your copy, I love the thinking behind getting a copy for you too.
  12. I haven't really done much stargazing at all of late but have taken at least during the day time to gardening and bonsai. That is helped by the fact that our garden needs lots and lots of work to get it close to where we want it so there is plenty to do. Plus lots of little DIY jobs too. By night sleep kicks in much earlier these days but I'm ok with that.
  13. It is all really dependant on just how involved you want to be. I mean you could take a job at a small aerospace firm that might just make one component of a satellite for example but at least you are in the industry in one way or another. And if you look at it that way then it's not all just engineering and science jobs. Every company needs and administration, IT, sales etc... Now I know that these sites are for the USA and EU mainly and it is often restricted to their citizens but maybe by going over the listings you can find something that does interest you and then choose to follow it
