Hello from Aberdeen

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've lurked on here for quite a while and decided it's time to sign up.

Finally finding the time to get back into Astrophotography after working in the Oil/Gas industry for far too long.

I have an Esprit 100ED, EQ6-R and ASI2600 on order from FLO and hope to get going in time for the dark Scottish nights 🙂

 

Pete

Welcome @ParallaxPete from a fellow star gazer in the north east of Scotland. 

When we finally get some clear skies, it sounds like you'll be ready to go! 😀 👍

Welcome. Glad you said hello. Seems to be a few folks from our area checking in recently. It certainly can’t be any prevalence of clear skies that’s caused the influx ...

If you’re up for some company - including some experienced AP enthusiasts (I’m visual only) - check out Aberdeen Astronomical Society. Online only at present, of course, but we’re friendly folks. 🙂

Hi Pete and welcome to SGL. You have a nice equipment setup on order, have you decided what image processing software to use?

I'm a bit of a Photoshop fan, but I am tempted to start using PixInsight. It looks like it'll take a bit of getting used to, but seems to be very powerful. As for other software, I intend to use NINA and PHD2.

Yes indeed, I'm glad to see it's still going. I actually met John MacNicol through work around 20 years ago (showing my age now 🤣) and he said back then I should join, I just never got round to it.
