Re: Learning to Use Photoshop Curves

Hi Greg,

Welcome to the forums. If I remember correctly, I don't think Elements will do curves. Does elements now support curves?

Re: Rosette with RC8

That's really good Sean! PI and Fast seem to not work for me. I'm still slow and go with PI. Congrats on your photo and RC8.

Re: when to do a meridian flip?

I don't have an automated flip in software. I think it takes a little practice and knowing what works for your setup. On my mount, I can use the width of my fist to "estimate" one hour. When I image during the night, I'm always up, checking it, but, I like sleep too. I'll estimate how many hours and...

Re: When do you have time to take darks?

Hi Randy, It's a different story when you have regulated cooling and you can set your chip temperature. To be honest, I have done both. With regulated Cooling and without. In your case you do not have regulated cooling, here's what I did in that scenario if it helps any. Take my darks during the twi...

Re: New Gear Too!

Congrats on new gear and your website looks nice. BTW, Google is dropping sites from their search engine if they aren't secure. Yes, MAI.com isn't secure either. Do I care? No. But, if you want your website to become available with a small chance of being served up, you may want to consider securing...

Re: I have data, but, not processed!

Yeah, I guess I should process this data, but, I haven't. Still so many other projects to do. I installed three new windows, finished the inside, painting, patch, etc... I did the outside stucco and sealant, but, need to paint trim on the outside.

I have data, but, not processed!

OK, I still go imaging whenever the skies are clear.

I've got a couple of data sets I haven't processed yet. Elephant Trunk (9/2018) and Witches Head (12/2018).

As you can see, I'm running behind schedule!

Re: Time lapse at Gayle Beck Lodge

Nicely done Gordon!

The flashing lights were a little distracting, but, the photography was superb! I like the crystal ball focus with the blurred stars in the background. I think it was Orion in the Ball?

I never stopped imaging! I just took a break.

I'm getting the email notifications now. This should open the board to new members.

Sorry for the down time.

Trying to dial things back into shape. I apologize for no contests. If we get everything back in working order, then I may decide to try it again. It really isn't fair if nobody new can join the forum. I'm hoping we'll get some new members after things get running again.
