Iris nebula second attempt

Recommended Posts

I played Dead space 1 and it was scarier than any film I've ever seen, I was on the edge of my seat, I don't know if I dare play DS2, tempting though its pretty cheap now, I've had my eye on Aliens-Colonial Marines, its not far from release now.

Dead space is the scaryist one deadspace 2 is also very cool as well play it with all the light out ;)

You have no excuses with all this cloud about there will be little imaging being done until its gone sigh

Sorry to stick my nose in, Just a thought to through in, the images we take now were impossible for the Amateur astronomer not so long ago back in the 70's 80's, you just didn't have the technology or funds, all you could do was read about it... cheap tech as helped no end, more kit more observers more data, and opinions @great@ win win.

We are living in a great age of exsploration its truly amazing what we have discovered in the last 50 years I think its wonderful to be able to image galaxys in your own back yard ;)

(un)fortunately I have oooodles of jobs to do apart from astronomy related!! But still doing repairs on my obsy roof. There's a few odd improvement jobs to do on the obsy as a whole too but they are daytime jobs. I could certainly do with a clear night for a change - I think I'm having withdrawal symptoms ;)

Great image Mark. All your shots give me hope that I will be able to do similar when I finally get my EQ5 motors and get my ST80/QHY5 guiding system working. It'll be autumn by then I expect.

'hope your floods subside soon and your hens don't get wet. Not too bad where I live but quite a lot of Somerset is underwater.

Best wishes,

Pete.

Floods have subsided now chickens are laying eggs for us all just need to see the stars again and I will be a happy chappy.:)
