Re: Current status of the book Getting Started: Long Exposure Astrophotography

Everything has been digitally approved, the printed proof is on its way and should be here by Tuesday the 23rd. After all the people that have looked over the manuscript, they say it is still normal for authors to go through more than one printed proof. This of course means I would have to push the ...

Re: Clear Skies!

It certainly will not hurt anything to try, especially since you already have the parts. I would be very interested in the results! Honestly I have no doubt that a cooler camera will produce better images, I am just not sure it is "all that and a bag of chips" for DSLRs like some people say. But kee...

Re: Clear Skies!

I have thought about the cold box idea, and have even followed a few websites detailing the build, and of course the one from Orion pre-made. The problem I have is I have never seen before and after images, in fact I have asked for such and been ignored. To me this means they probably do not work ve...

General guidelines for all forums

I hate rules, and even more I hate keeping up with rules, so I will make this simple. There are no hard and fast rules, everything is taken in the spirit of the rules.
