Re: Orion Nebula

Excellent image.

Haven’t used my scopes for a while having had several very frustrating attempts to set my new EQ6 mount up.
Been thinking about having another run at it recently and this has inspired me.

Where are you based with your scope?

Cheers,
Jeff.

Re: Last Gasp NT North West

Hi Rich, These are nice, that house in the first few always reminds me of dazzle camouflage lol. What is the wooden pole with the coloured glass about? If I could make one criticism or observation, sometimes less is more. You have an awful lot of pictures here and many of them are almost duplicates ...

That’s an interesting image, love the range of colours on the metalwork.

Well done.

Re: Another Hunter ruined..

Its not ruined at all, paint can be stripped and applied time and time again. Chopping it up into tiny little pieces, melting it down into ingots and then making razor blades will ruin it, somebody is just offended its not in its original colour scheme. Hey ho, tough luck As long as those razor bla...

Re: Parking charge on private land - your experiences?

Ian, Broadly speaking the best way is to ignore them completely, don't acknowledge the letter and don't admit to being the driver and there is no requirement to reveal who was driving either. (It sounds like you've already done this though). I have successfully ignored two of these, one for me in a ...

Re: ISS Moon Transit

A resounding well done sir :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
As an aspiring Astro photographer who still struggles to set up his driven mount I am in awe.
I was taking moon photos the other evening through my smaller more mobile scope so may well try this myself.

Absolutely excellent, Well done.

It's parked up at Ardmore in NZ. I got a couple of shots of it last year. It looks scruffy with no engines or fin but not beyond saving. Good luck to them.
