  1. Wasted time.

    So. It's clear, it's fairly cold, I'm sitting here watching some planet jump all over my screen, scratching my head, I'm going, wtf? Thinking back, (something I always used to check,) I forgot about checking the jet stream, AAAAARGH!
  2. This is last nights effort. Hope to get some better images as it's beginning to get colder at night. Might steady things up a bit. Tim.
  3. Last nights Mars.

    About 9pm it pops out from behind a tree....But it's ideal about 11pm to 1am.
  4. NGC7331 massive crop

    Yep, that worked very well! Tim
  5. Got a few clear nights. Trying to get in some imaging time. A little soft, but better than to overdo it. Cheers, Tim.
  6. Obs refurbish/repair

    A fridge, bar and a TV you got a Man Cave!
  7. Haven't seen one of these little fellas in a while. Hung out a bit then went his own way. Tim.
  8. Walked outside last night about 11pm, and noticed this action going on. It was cloudy earlier, so I didn't bother trying to do any imaging. But anyway just a quick snapshot a Mars and the Moon hangin together. Tim.
  9. Obs refurbish/repair

    Looking good! Tim.
  10. Pleiades ultradeep - with colour

    Nothing short of spectacular! Tim.
  11. Pearl Cluster

    I'll just say, "Holy Crap!" That's sweet! Tim
  12. I've finally gotten familiar with my new CEM 70. I'm thinking it's going to be just fine. Any-who, a few assorted pics. From the 20th. Smoke from the California fires came into play on this one. Sky had cleared a few days later, jet stream sent the smoke northward. Mars a little smoky as well. A Jupe from a few days ago, (still smokin.) And last night's venture. Not too pleased with any of the above, but under the current circumstances with the weather, I will just quietly grumble under my breath. I'm probably done with Jupiter and Saturn this apparition as they're easing toward the west. Could be worse, after buying a new mount, and, building an obs, I could be totally clouded out for months! Tim
  13. Pelican

    Amazing result Greg. I've always loved this region. Cygnus is loaded with eye candy. (Images are much better on here than FB.) Tim.
  14. The ZWO120mm monochrome cam. Baader fitlters. Tim.
  15. It was one of those moments when almost anything that could go wrong did. New laptop wouldn't recognize camera, had to grab old laptop which hadn't been fired up in months, battery dead in camera, grab more batteries, the old GC-5 mount wouldn't come on, flick switch 57 times, yep that got it! And the result for all that fun filled enjoyment... Ahhh, there it is! Tim.
