Steve the only way i know of is to copy the image from a website.

Right click on the image/go to properties

on the top of the properties box there is an http address

highlight it and copy.

paste it in the posting box

then highlight it again.

At the top of the posting box above the smileys there are function boxes

click the one second from the left on the bottom row. DONE!

I am sure that you can do the same if you upgrade your ISEE STARS account to the premium version.

But i would check with Grant first about that.

That is superb Pete, really, really nice.

Is the 20a the astro-special one from Canon?

Yes Daz, it's the one with a better red response and interactive focusing on the electronic view screen. A really nice camera.

Thats a great image Pete. Fantastic detail in the dust lanes and seem to have captured more of the galaxy than in most images.

Is the Canon 20Da your camera Pete or is it a review sample? In which case can we expect a review in Sky at Night magazine sometime in the future?

Regards

Russ

Unfortunately it's for an unofficial review - i.e. nothing fixed yet - the camera was just passing my way. It goes back today with a few more frames on the clock!

Hi Pete,

Couldnt help myself like Steve we like to play with Great images so here's my effort. I used Image Plus and Photoshop mainly played with the highlights and Levels.

That's a nice edit too. You've pulled out a bit more detail - quite subtle but it's definitely there. Well done James!

I could of pulled quite a lot more detail out of the Image but it would of looked over processed in the end. There's quite a lot of info in the image to play with, that Camera look's excellent for this kind of work.

Thanks
