Re: If you are going to buy a Tak...

Takahashi is switching to a new colour scheme. They are phasing out the green.... http://www.takahashijapan.com/ct-news/news_160629_lbci.html The problem is I already told the dealer that I'd like to buy old green ones but they still shipped new blue ones to me. If you need a replacement, you need ...

Re: Summer Milky Way at Taichung, Taiwan

Wonderfully clear skies Robin! I was there as part of my tour 2 years back but unfortunately, the sky was cloudy all the time! Wrong timing or someone must have bought a big new scope then! :) Haha~ Spring and early summer are generally the worst time. It rains and the cloud never disappears. lots ...

Re: Summer Milky Way at Taichung, Taiwan

Robin, Very nice colour on the wide-field imagery, and great account! Thanks Remus! I wish I had a full frame camera that night. Anyway, I should be grateful since other than the camera body (550D), all the other equipment were borrowed from the amateurs namely the Takahashi TS90 mount and Canon EF...

Re: Summer Milky Way at Taichung, Taiwan

Hi Robin, Since a picture is worth a thousand words, and I'm left quite speechless, I can only say.... 'Holy Cow!' Can you tell us a bit about astronomy sites in Taiwan? For example, where do astronomers go to usually? Is the Great Snow Mountain their main site? How's the transparency, light pollut...

Summer Milky Way at Taichung, Taiwan

I was in Taiwan during 2012 summer for research project in observing extragalactic objects. My supervisor and I went for Great Snow Mountain in Taichung during a weekend before typhoon struck. Needless to say, the sky was absolutely clear and the cloud was below our feet at 2632m altitude. http://fa...
