Seriously.....how do you do it?!?

It's not that difficult Adam.

You just have to be systematic in your approach to AP.

Keep an eye on your equipment choice, procedure and technique. This applies to data acquisition as well as image processing.

...

Personally, I'm pretty shabby and lazy at this compared to some of the greats that I have come across. The journey is endless but you continually improve as well as enjoy an increase in frustration and witness a decreasing bank balance at the same time!

We'll sort something out Adam...

Might be a good idea to pop round when I go through an AP session with Vicky!

Super pics G, I was up at 4am this morning and the skies were nice and clear, i looked up where the comet was and thought it would be a great chance to image it or view it, but I had to be up at 6:30 so went back to bed.

Clear skies forecast for this Friday and I think saturday at the moment anyway, its gonna be chilly at about -3 and another 3 degrees below that at dunford bridge.

Exciting stuff Matt! You'll be busy today getting it all sorted out.

Hope you get some clear skies later to give it a test run :)

Hi all, just a heads up to read the important security announcement on SGL as it explains a little more about why it was shut down overnight.

It asks us to change our passwords for security, and also mentions Tapatalk which I know some of you use.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it as it contains some important information :)

Just read the post Vicky and I'm wondering if that's the reason my replies to posts have been stalling?

Anyway good to know and I will change my password.

On another note Darcy has been offered a place a Oxford. Happy if expensive days!

The Martian is in my pile of books to read, along with another 12 or so books. I really need to stop my book buying habit.

Looking like cloud until the weekend, but might get an old clear spell with the Moon shining through or something to have the maiden look through.

Matt.
