Re: Satellite Tracking

Jack, you are misunderstanding Clarence's request. He's not trying to image Earth or Space from a satellite in orbit, he is trying to track and image satellites in orbit from Earth, with his Telescope. Clarence, here's one program that allow our telescopes to track satellites. SkyTrack from HeavenSc...

Re: My astrophotography 2021

Stunning!
Every night I attempt to image Rho Ophiuchus I get clouded out or fogged out! I think it doesn't want to be photographed.

Re: My astrophotography 2021

Nice attempts hhzhang.

Re: catch the super flower blood moon eclipse on may 26

Was still good to watch :mrgreen:

All Overseas shops say they can't send to Australia because companies like Meade, Celestron etc won't let them....

Re: My astrophotography 2021

I'm sure Methuselah might have :mrgreen: Beautiful landscape shot :) https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3dstPHoBUGdlajL14uA9lqkqwqo-crGmI9qEKJVk_4m_VanrEribbpYH8ndnL9seg2mKOF...
