making a programme on ion drive

would you be interested in making a programme on ion drive, my theory is to react xenon with flourine to produce a compound thus increaseing accelleration. plus n.a.s.a'ers chang diaz claims 39 days for the trip to mars.

A good starter scope ready for imaging ?

Hi,

I am very new to astronomy and I'm looking for a scope and mount that is good starter to general viewing but I can use for astrophotography later. I recently went to a local club and had a look through a few different scopes. I was going to get a 8 or 10" dob but, one they are quite big to store and transport and I would need to collimate it so I think ...

Imaging Jupiter and the Full moon

I have been imaging Jupiter and the full moon a couple of nights ago. I simply used my DSLR mounted on a tripod imaging at different exposures to allow for the varying brightness of the Moon and the planet.

Query about brightness ratio chromosphere and photosphere

Hi Everyone

I would be very grateful if someone could answer this question for me.

If you divide the brightness of the uneclipsed photosphere of the sun by the brightness of the chromosphere that can be seen around a totally eclipsed sun, what is the result? (Obviously when I use the word "chromosphere", this should not be confused with the corona.)

I am having difficulty finding the necessary information on the Internet in order to ...

Refractor best for photography

Hi,
First post so Hello.
I spent an evening with a local group of stargazers and found it interesting to say the least. So I would like to "have a go" myself.
I come from a photography background and although I would just like to gaze at the fascinating night sky, I can see I will get the itch to photograph it as well.
I am also lucky enough to have a garden a few ...

Can anyone tell me how to alter them into a format where i can access them in the folder which ...

I am beginning to create some simple pictures of The moon with my Alt/az mount at the moment. As my camera is not full frame I would like to/believe it is possible to create mosaics to join the various sections together?
