  1. Well done Tony, though I wonder how you manage to lift all this stuff in your circumstances. Also I thought I read you saying a while back you were planning to move, and that is why you had delayed getting a bigger mount, is that not happening now? Carole
  2. Put an obsy round it Dave, you know you want to. Carole
  3. I believe he did, though there are many more tutorials out there now. Carole
  4. Ah yes, I recall you were the first person i saw Demonstrate that. I didn't have a clue what was going on, and decided there and then it was not for me. Seen 2 further demonstrations since and still did not like it so am still using Photoshop. Yes not seen Dennis around since PAIG but then with all these Alias names, we could have been talking to him all along and not knowing ha ha. Carole
  5. Good images, I like the top one best as it is not full Moon and shows shadows in the craters. Carole
  6. I only E Mailed Dave Smith in the last couple of days. Astro wise he was doing something a bit diverse like measuring for exoplanets or something non imaging. Can’t remember exactly what it was. but he has also been laid off for a while with eyesight problems but after surgery l believe he is on the mend now. carole
  7. You're doing to well now Gabs, well done. There is even more nebulosity to be pulled out of that image, I will E mail it to you. Carole
  8. Ah Dave, I know you, I met you, Tony (Mighty Monoped), Roger and Wobby Bob and Dennis (and others) in Suffolk (I came with Dave Smith). All falling into place now. Glad to hear you came through the big C and are back into imaging again. I have a feeling you sold your observatory to someone I know (or did that fall through)? Really sorry to hear about Wobbly Bob, I have met him at Kelling a few times since then. I am still around and haven't stopped imaging, been using a Mono camera since 2012 and I think I was still using a DSLR when I last had contact with you, so it's a long time ago. Been looking around Suffolk for campsites to bring my local group to, but several won't take groups of more than 2 pitches, and some of us have given up tents and want PODs otherwise we could go to Haw Wood Farm.

  9. Welcome to BYA. When I first saw your post I was a bit confused as there is another Dave S on here. I think you have to both put up an Avtar to differentiate yourselves. Not sure if the other Dave S has done so. Carole
  10. I like both but the 2nd one does it for me. Carole
  11. Thanks Guys, I fiddled around with the Ha colour for ages before I finally settled on something that wasn't too brown, too yellow or too red. Carole

  13. Yes I was out last night. As my above post, I tried Platesolving which did not work yet again. Forgot to copy the log files, so reverted to my workhorse of handset, Artemis and PHD1. Next clear night I shall align the dual rig which is already set up, and hopefully can collect twice as much data like I used to do in the past. It was a bit too cold last night to do too much fiddling. Carole
  14. Wow, that must have been scary. Glad you have come through it all OK and things are on the mend. Carole
