Nice shots :smile:  You are tempting me to get the kit out - should be working (this is a drinks break!) :rolleyes2:


You can work when it's raining Helen, which is quite often in Wales :grin:

:hello2::hello2::hello2: emojithon for you Charl, you have certainly got the WL captures nailed to the door mate, next stop for you I think is a Quark.

I am telling you Charl with the quality images you are putting up in WL.................well let's just say a Quark in your arsenal will give you a Solar kit you will tame in no time.

On a side note, all this weather is great but I have 100's of Gb of data to get through so getting it up here may take a while. All is good.

Lovely set sir ... :happy7:

Dreadful wibbly-wobbly here today so never bothered pressing the shutter , that added to me being out under his relentless glare since 07:00 meant no session for me , will have a peek early doors tomorrow though ... :happy8:

thanks Ewan, ive been looking at the Quark Chromosphere for a few weeks and putting a list together,  think im going to have to get a new ccd aswell like a PG BFLY or simler, but ive wont beable to buy untill the end of the year "unless a 2hand one pops up" ive got too many bills to pay first. thanks for your kind words,clear skys charl.

Charl don't make a mistake & rush to buy mate, worth saving the extra & getting what you want, not what you can afford at the time.

The PG imx174 I use is astounding (now I have the hang of it lol), I use an i3 lappy but put a 1TB Samsung SSD in it just to keep up with the PG, i am terrible at buying stuff for my hobbies :icon_biggrin: but i felt i needed to move up from the DMK 618.

Like you, i made a list, then took weeks to decide & a lot of images viewed later i ended up where i am.

What ever you choose i am sure you will enjoy the 'upgrade' but don't change whatever you are doing now mate............it's just so right.

Well done.
