Backyard EOS

I downloaded Backyard EOS to use with my Canon DSLR but it seems like it's been cloudy ever since then! With nine days left on the free trial licence I couldn't wait any longer for a clear sky at night so I set everything up yesterday day time and took some photos of a tree in the back garden of my neighbour five doors down.

9 lights 1/200s iso 200, 9 darks, 9 flats auto ...

Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm

I've been shopping around for a good deal on one of these M50's from Canon. Most of the kits have this 15-45mm lens. How is this lens?

Is it one that I'll likely keep? If so, then I'll keep looking at kits. If garbage lens, then I'll stick with the body only.

Thank you!

Who has been to a Star Party?

I thought it might be interesting to see who has been to a Star Party and what you thought of them.

We've been to several - I think our first was in West Wales, near the Presceli Mountains in Pembrokeshire, in which we had about 40 minutes of clear skies on the Friday evening before the rain set in for the rest of the weekend.
Excellent talks though

We have enjoyed several Peak Star Parties ...

Greenwich Royal Observatory Podcast

Does anyone here listen to the Greenwich Royal Observatory podcast?

https://soundcloud.com/user-429302439/l ... tober-2018

It has some interesting stuff this month. Dhara (not Ó Briain) giving us an update on the habitability of Proxima Centauri b and Greg (not Smye-Rumsby) tells us about the brand new planet-hunter TESS which has already found its first planet! Then, most importantly, a thing about the Vulcan home world!
