A place to hang out and chat about astronomy

Wiki?

Hi!

Do you WIKI? http://ukastroimaging.co.uk/forums/Smileys/classic/cool.gif http://ukastroimaging.co.uk/forums/Smileys/classic/cool.gif http://ukastroimaging.co.uk/forums/Smileys/classic/cool.gif

A wiki is a website designed for collaboration. Unlike a traditional website where pages can only be read, in a wiki everyone can edit, update and append pages with new information.
I have set up an experimental WIKI for adding / editing and sharing Astro - Imaging TOP TIPS.

Please feel free to have a go!

www.bluwiki.org/go/G4AQB_ASTRO_WIKI

The pages will also be linked from my website www.g4aqb.org.uk

There ...

S@N CD Software - K3 CCD

Hi all

I have just tried the K3CCD software that came on this months CD. I used a video of Saturn taken on Wednesday eve and attached it below.
Personally I prefer Registax for video processing but that could be just because I am used to it! Any comments are welcome.

Binoscopes

HI everyone, I spotted the photo of Stonkin looking through his binoscope and i have a soft spot for them. helious do several types with 45degree angle and changeable eyepieces, and they work with barlows as well so you can power from 25x to 100x or what ever works well at the time.they are not cheap, starting at about £1000 up to tens of thousands. I cant help thinking that these things serve a multiple ...

Full Moon

Hi Gang,
I have just had a visit from a neighbours son who wanted to know what the Earth looked like from space. After a brief chat I showed him some photos and a book called Full Moon by the American author Michael Light. I hadn't really thought of it before but I wondered whether any of the Apollo debinkers had seen this book. It is a beautifully laid out photographic atlas of man's journey ...

No Celestron Nextar 130 SLTs in stock anywhere?

Hi,

My beloved 114Gt was sold this morning - so I start looking for a 130 SLT - None in stock anywhere?

I suppose I can take comfort that is is cloudy at the moment so I could not use it anyway.

If the clouds break and we get clear skies while I wait weeks for the SLTs to arrive = just my luck.

I do still have the 80GT - unless that sells later ...

1960 Sky at Night.

Brilliant, absoluetely brilliant. I have just watched the 1960 edition of the S@N from this months CD coverdisc. Great fun and extremely interesting to see how times have changed since then.
I will repeat a tip that I put in the magazine a few months ago. That is try to play the CD in your DVD players. The MPeg files will play well on most DVD players. It is far better to watch the programmes ...

JUPITER

Hi everyone
The first clear night for weeks so made the most of it, stayed up until 3am and managed to get a pic of Jupiter boy was it cold -4C. Did anyone else notice the amount of vapor trails from aircraft though, must be a weather thing. Tried to do some a deep sky but having problems with my auto guider. Saw a couple of satellites and a shooting star as well.

Members' Phots

Just been looking at the photo gallery and glad to see that members are now adding their own albums. Good work.
One thing I don't like about it is the facility to "rate" someone elses efforts. Yes, some will be better quality imagewise (excuse the Americanism) than others, but these all depend on equipment, experience, location, conditions and of course money! All efforts should be commended.
Lets see lots more.
