  1. NGC 7822

    Epic mate. I'm a bit jealous. My PC in the obs died a few weeks back, and I have missed some great skies. Ray
  2. A decade of astrophotography

    Holy moly! That was amazing Gordon. Some great work there my friend. Ray
  3. satellites

    lol, plenty more of those to come mate. Are they trackable on via software? Ray
  4. All is good on my end. However we had a powercut about a month ago and that killed my motherboard in my observatory computer. So annoying. I imagine it is the motherboard because I cannot get video from either the motherboard or video card. I run four monitors in my observatory. I had just finished revamping the observatory as well. So I have missed some clear nights. I am time poor at the moment, so getting the PC fixed was one of the last things I thought I would have to do. I'll have to get some computer guy out I think. Ray
  5. How is everything going my mate? Ray
  6. NGC 3201

    Your collection on FB speaks volumes mate. You are doing great work. This glob is awesome, and globs come with their own set of challenges. Ray
  7. Yes, agree totally agree. I've completely rebuilt the outside of my observatory, and I'm almost finished shooting the tarantula (keeping in mind I haven't produced anything for some time), we had a powercut and my video card dies (this was about two weeks ago). Annoying to say the least. I have four monitors hooked up to it as well. Ray
  8. Dark Matter

    Prof I will PM you. Ray
  9. Crikey..!!!

    Shame about Kangaroo Island. Zoom in on this map of NSW https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/fires-near-me Satellite time lapse here - https://fbwat.ch/1WIJXFNdwlWpitsp Unbelievable stuff happening. Ray

    Daryl I heard it was getting up to 45 and 46 in S.A and got to 48.9 in Gippsland earlier today. Just crazy. Ray
  11. Crikey..!!!

    I had a PM from a member on Ancestry. At first I thought it was some type of scam, but there was a DNA alert flashing on my account saying something like "father, exact match" or something similar. So it was pretty cool. We made contact and sure enough, a whole new family. Crazy. Ray
  12. Yeah its crazy, new moon and hazy cloud everywhere. Just when I had some time to shoot. Ray
  13. Almost complete. Just tweaks and finishing touches remain to be done. Ray
  14. Same to you Dave. Love the photo mate. Hopefully you'll take a couple of the hatchling. Ray
  15. Crikey..!!!

    Greg my sister lives in East Sussex (Preston). I only found out I had a sister about 18 months ago thanks to an ancestry test. Ray
