SIR PATRICK MOORE 1923-2012Norman Lockyer Observatory.
Hi Guys, just joined trhe group. Am setting up new system and looking at WiFi. I see 2 units - the SkyFi wireless serial and usb adaptor and the Omegon SkyFi unit - both look the same. Both from Germany - the one is cheaper than the other.
Furthering the experimentation of imaging and video-ography!!, I have explored the minute world of nano electronics in the form of a very small quad copter vehicle, carrying a small micro digital video camera.
Thanks to Kate, with whom I have had several useful conversations recently (on both atrophotography and sweatshirts!) Through her, I have joined this forum and hope to learn much from it. I shall be attending the Introduction to Imaging Course next month and I am sure my knowledge will increase as a result. I really must try to get along on a Friday night but unfortunately I am not as local as some other NLO members and Salcombe Hill is pretty steep and windy on a dark winter night (when the stars look their best)! If anyone would like to find out a bit more about me, I have a pretty detailed profile which I have published this afternoon. Some of my (very amateurish) astro photos can be found on the Torbay Astronomical Society Facebook page.

Hi. during the evening of 10 march while looking with my binoculars at the Orian nebular, a satellite passed my field of view traking east to west. could this have been the ISS?

Well, Monday and Tuesday were clouded out but at least I sorted out the interface between Starry Night and the CG5 so not a total loss.
Really rubbish day, outside playing "Games" for teambuidling all day in the rain. Sent them to bed at 10pm with ligths out at 11:00pm then did a wander around to check on them and discovered that the sky was amazing. I could see casseopia clearly including some of the smaller stars between the W ones. Saw the plough and the square of pegasus. All very clear.
Monday and Tuesday - Do further trials of new scope to try to shake down the balance alignment issues noted on Saturday
