Hi Mark,

I spent some time looking at your images, I totally love them. They're amazing! The Elephant trunk is one of my favorites.

By the way, you asked me about Startools the other day, and Ivo, the guy who wrote StarTools decided to process my Heart nebula to show me what the tool can do, and I was blow away for an image that is taken from a Bortle 8 sky like Portland downtown...I uploaded his processing and obviously gave him credit for that, and I thought you may want to take a look to it.

Cheers, M.

Hi Marc. My apologies for the slow reply. I have been busy and haven't been on Astrogab in a loooooong time. :-(

Thanks for the comments Marc. The Canon 20Da has 2 main features for astrophotography, it has a slightly better IR response and more important it has 2 live focus modes that enlarge the center of the image making focus very easy. Trying to look through the view find is useless for the sky. My understanding is that when the 20D was in production one of the big executives asked engineering to make ans astronomy camera for him. They said they could not make one but they could make 5000, so they did and sold them. Don't know if this story is true or not.

Thanks marc, Slowly but surely I am starting to figure a little of this stuff out.

Light Pollution

Posted on June 11, 2012 at 1:01pm 1 Comment

I love the irony in this pic,
We can't see the stars because of all the light pollution we generate, so we'll put up fake stars and constellations and generate more light pollution-Great Idea! Marc
