This Sunday 24th May at 8pm, we are launching the first of an ongoing series of virtual astronomy talks, workshops and presentations at 'StarGaZine'.  You can attend StarGaZine events free of cha

We haven’t quite decided the ‘where’ yet but the ‘when’ will be later this week. It will be announced with link details once available.

We will be recording and will look at making this available to people who can't attend. This will be subject to each speaker giving permission. Meeting links and ID's will be sent nearer the time

Is there a graphic artist in the house? 🙂 

We will be building a website for StarGaZine so need a logo (will happily pay the going rate) so if you can help, please contact us.

This is an excellent idea and I'm sure it will be a great success :icon_biggrin:

I hope that visual observation and other non-imaging interests will be catered for in the near future :icon_biggrin:

I do realise that the majority of forum members do probably image or are interested in imaging though.

Back to my eyepiece now, while it's clear .... :rolleyes2:

Excellent idea.  

Why not make the graphic a competition and then choose the one you like best.  Perhaps you can give some ideas of the sort of thing you would like, I'd like to give it a go, though I am not a computer graphics expert.

That is a great initiative. There are quite a few youtube channels giving useful info, but they are usually based around hte enthusiasms of the host and who/what they can source. It is good stuff, but a well curated set of events that can tap into a whole community would be a very welcome addition. I look forward to the first event, since @steppenwolf is one of my heroes!

Good luck.. looking forward to it being a massive success of course.

Have a thread/poll for people to suggest topics, then we could find people to knock up some material. Not being an imager (well not at night time) am I in the minority?!

OK, I've registered with Zoom, but as I don't have a webcam on this computer will I be crippled in my access? Think my old lappy has a cam.

No, you can join Zoom with or without video.  You can join by phone if you don't have a computer.

Already have zoom, great idea this. I am doing more of the eeva aspect along with some wide angle camera only shots but I plan attending. Can still pick up some useful tips.

Thanks Ray. I'll have a look at my old laptop, currently I use it for RDP my telescope, but will switch that to another computer.
