I wanted to have the sensor cleaned on my canon 500D , a quick email to skears photographic in Northampton http://www.skearsphoto.com/ was swiftly replied with the cost £30 , I dropped it off and waited a week due to COVID-19 and camera being quarantined for three days first , picked up with a service report highlighting a mark on sensor, on pictures there was a black speck I thought was dirt , camera pictures nice and clean otherwise, would recommend.
I seem to have an issue with my NS camera that I can't figure out. Whenever I take a picture, every bright object in it, especially stars, have a black shadow on the right part of the image. I have disregarded the effect coming from the telescope or reflections from outside, because the shadow always appears on the right, regardless the angle of the camera with respect to the telescope. The effect is very apparent when I'm focusing. I have attached several pictures to see if someone can give me a hint:
- ...004: focusing street lights
- ...006 Calibration (Dark)
- ...008 Calibration (Bias)
- ...010 Calibration (Flat): pointing to a street light and trees
- ...013 Focusing a star
- ...019 Picture of street lights
- ...003 Focusing a bright star
- ...5420 Picture of a star field
I'm trying to do the firmware update for the Starsense in which I needed to install Java which I uninstalled ages ago because it plays havoc with my laptop.
Now, when I try and open the update a message pops up say 'A Java Exception has occurred'
Not a good start, having problems with it even before I've got it outside.
Could someone please tell me what to do?
I know a few members are using USB temperature and humidity sensors to track the temperature and humidity (of course!) in their observatories. Which make/model do you recommend - are they reliable and where can one purchase them from?
Is it possible to run more than one from the same machine?
Thanks in advance :-)
