Celestron LPR Binoculars ?


Anyone out there who uses Celestron LPR binoculars? The write-ups seem to be spit, on the one hand they do an excellent job of cutting light pollution and enhancing the views of certain nebula. Others say that the BAK 7 prisms are not as good as the BAK 4's and the overall quality is not good.
I have been toying with the idea of getting some, but would love to hear what other users ...

What software are you using?

Hi Gang,
I was just wondering what software you are using and which do you recommend. I am using Starry Night Pro v.5 and find it the most informative I've used up to date. In the past I've used Redshift 5, Skymap Pro and most of the freeware available for download. Does anyone out there have any opinions or recommendations that they can suggest? I'd like to hear your opinions.
Co-incidentally as a foot-note I'd ...

Post-processing of images

I really enjoy looking at people's imaging efforts, and we've already got some great pics posted in the photo gallery.

I've come across many pics on other sites where the full technical spec. has been given to how the image was achieved, e.g. how long the exposure, how many frames stacked etc. and quite often I see that the image was further processed in Photoshop, or a similar program.

What kind of processing is done ...

How do you deal with dew formation?

I am new to astronomy and find that my view quickly turns hazy, which i think is dew formation. Where do you store the scope, room temp or outside temp, and are dew removers effective? I would appreciate any advise.

CCD or astro digital SLR?

I have been thinking about moving on to a Starlightexpress, possibly the SXV M8 C although I still need to educate my self in these things. I was sticking to CCD technology because I always hear that digital SLRs can't handle long exposures with out creating loads of noise. Now I have just found this Canon 20DA astro digital SLR. What do you think of this? How would it compare to the SXV M8 C? ...
