  1. Got today's EPOD with a non-astro picture http://epod.usra.edu/blog/ Greg
  2. 110 hours and 38 minutes later out came a Sierpinski pyramid in Rigid.Ink black PLA, 162mm along a base edge and 0.2mm resolution. Greg
  3. Trifid Nebula

    That is already a belter - so when it's finished - WOW!!! Greg
  4. Another ISS pass and Summer sky

    I think it has something to do with the Moon being upside down at your place Greg
  5. ISS transit

    Yep - the sky was too light for a single 6-minute exposure. Greg
  6. Another 6-minute ISS pass plus a quick shot of the Summer Triangle (and Mars) Greg
  7. ISS transit

    Last night's 6-minute ISS pass - bright light behind tree is the Moon Greg
  8. I think anyone would be horrified if they knew what went on in their garden down at the macro-scale Greg Should I be putting "Warning - Graphic Images" next to these??
  9. Some more macro work

    Last set for today. Bee, unopened Sunflower and some other plant Greg
  10. MiniWASP article

  11. We have had unusually hot weather recently and I have had to go out most nights with the hose to prevent the Missus' plants from dying. Noticed Superhydrophobicity at work on the Bulrush leaves, so I went out today to macro the effect. Wasn't expecting my little mate to be there as well - I'm always amazed at the antenna length of these beauties!! Greg
  12. Cocoon nebula region

    I added some extra data to the north of this one and reprocessed the whole thing. Taken with the Canon 200mm lenses and Trius M26C OSC CCDs - a horizontal 2-frame mosaic. Greg
  13. dead mount cable?

    Just stick a 1kW UPS in, they're only £100 in the UK and it will power mount, computer, monitor, the lot. I have 2 x 1kW UPSs in the MiniWASP observatory. Greg
