  7. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xk-WjNG_lvnS8MN80SsTPJyXR1K85Ebd/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TeCU9kP1yQRcoqfpHOk_CTyFbiSG-LWc/view?usp=sharing hope this works. top one is 13 sec exposure. I tried to do 30sec exposure in second one ta
  8. Thanks , how do I post a link ? Camera is a Sony A5000. Ta
  9. Quite simply is it possible or am I wasting my time trying? Friday was a fantastic night so I set up at a nice location and shot some photos which looked great in live view on the camera but we're disappointingly dark on the PC. Shot in RAW but I could not replicate the live view images on my PC. My camera has an APSC sensor, is this too small to capture enough light for clear image of the milky way?. Exposure length was 15 seconds to avoid blur with F2.8 and I SO tried at 800 , 1000, 1600 all hopeless results. All advice appreciated
  10. Cant help with any groups but ive previously been at Playa Blanca and skies were fantastic, got my first view of Scorpius down there , worth packing the bins
  11. https://www.engadget.com/2017/11/28/nasa-release-voyager-golden-record-vinyl-box-set/ Apologies if previously posted but this looks like a fantastic christmas gift
  12. Not if its lightwright plastic construction, that was my problem. I had a surdy older mount but flat plate on top would have limited the motion of the P mount
