Hi Nor,

Great job on the website! The gallery is coming along nicely. Thanks for the section on auto guiding, as I'll be referencing it once I get my setup going here.

Cheers

Hi Nor, I am so happy to have found this site. I have always been so interested in the stars and did not know where or how to begin my learning adventre. This looks like the place. I am not sure how to find my longitued or latitude though. I know I will spend some time checking this site, if you don't mind I might have a few questions. Nice job on this website, I am so very glad to have found it. Fyi Note: when I got to the the comment page there is one of the security image boxes. I attempted to put in the image both in lower and upper case but it did not accept my submittal on several of the images. Cheers, Janet

Hi Janet,
To get passed the security window you MUST click SUBMIT. Hitting enter on the keyboard won't do it. AS for the your coordinates, try Google EARTH and put in your address The LAT and LON will be displayed on the map.

Chers

I've had tried to get order information for the LXD75 Belt Drive but have had no response for the Warps guy. Do you know if this is still available

10/30/2009
TO the best of my knowledge Warp is still making the kits. HE sometimes is slow to respond. Probobly busy.

Hi,
Your web site is great, lots of information for those of us who are just getting into telescopes and astrophotography. I have the same Meade LXD75SN scope. I would like to get a better focuser and have been looking at the Moonlite. I was wondering how you like it and if you have any thoughts on various motorised options?

11/4/2009
The Moonlite focuser is great. Very smooth in manual mode or when using the control box. It's strong enough to handle heavier Digital SLR bodies.

Nor

Very nice. I've always been interested in the SN-8. I've read that the remaining coma can be removed with a Baader MPCC, so it might make a great widefield scope as well.

cheers

Noticed your site link in the WOW message you sent about my 6 Minute M51 using Neb2.2.6 so have spent a couple of hours on your LIFE TIME web site. Outstanding Nor and cant imagine how much effort you must put in to just keep it current. I had a web site back when the internet was just getting started, that I manually constructed and spent a lot of time on it Now spending time learning to post process my images. Ill be back!

Hello,

My name is Taryn and I am the marketing coordinator for Unique Photo, NJs largest camera and video superstore. We are holding a seminar in Nov '10 on night photography and going to be photographing the moon with our 200-500mm lens and 2x tele-converter.
I was hoping maybe you could recommend someone living in NJ/NYC area or close by that would be able to instruct the seminar? I figured you would be a person to reach out to ;)

If you have any recommendations or think we could work something out to get you over here, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Thanks
Taryn

Hi NJS,
beautiful image, M42 is one of the most spectacular.
The trapezium is very difficult to expose for as it tends to blow out the image. I think yours suffers from this.
Perhaps do this bit again and merge as the rest of the nebulas look good.

Hi Nor,
Looks nice. However all I received was:

"Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'lt'

/inc/Sidereal.inc, line 33 "

Might be something I did - don't know!

Look forward to trying it again later.

Happy New Year

Love your mosaics,,,I like to do mosaics too in imerge.

1/14/2011
This is the first sight I check out before observing. The only thing that would make it better would be a night mode to reduce scrap paper. Guess I will actually have to spend some money on one of those monitor covers!

2/26/2011
Nor,

d be nice to have the following in the printable report for each object:
transit elev
rise azimuth
set azmimuth
rise time
set time
(all this is on the last line when an object is selected in the list)


great progrqm, use it all the time before observing

thanks

Jon

Hey. Great tonight's sky page - very useful. Occasionally get a "Type mismatch: 's' /inc/Sidereal.inc, line 15 " error, but works anyway.

Any chance of an android version that utilises built in GPS? That would be AWESOME, and I'd pay for that.

Cheers -

Nice!!!

Nor Hello, my name is Jesus Cornejo, I am 59 years old.
I live in León, Gto., Mexico.
A friend lent me his TeleStar DS-114.
I am a beginner in this field.
Searching the web I found your site and liked it, so I will take this as my guide in this cosmic adventure, if you wish.
My English is not good, I hope you understand.
Greetings.

Nor - great pictures of the astroid! I can't believe it. What was the time lasp from start to finish? What causes the astroid to start moving and to stop? Sorry if I'm ignorant about this but you can barely call me a "tire kicker" when it comes to stargazing. I was just fasinated when I saw the pics you sent Alexandra - double cheers back!!! Stephanie

3/2/2012
Nor As my typing skills are really nonexistant this will be short. I like the site very much. The pix are great and the info is fresh and relevant. It makes me want a scope of my own, truley a thought I never had before. I am also inclined to think that other visitors may also may be inspired along the same lines and that is a good thing my friend.Well as the old star hustler Dr. Jack Horkheimer used to say KEEP LOOKING UP!! With sincerest regaurds, Brian

Hi, I like the comet very mutch, especially the way you present it. I've been picturing Garradd myself but the big problem is the movement. The way you present it is wonderfull. May I ask you hou to implement this kind of presentation myself?

Hi, my name is Mike and I'm just getting back into astronomy after 30 years. Just found your site and will be doing alot of reading on it. Recently purchased an Astroview 100 refractor and hope to try some astrophotography in the future. Oh yea, I'm just down the road in Buttzville.

My site has no adds because I can afford $6 a month and have pride.

Way to go Norb...Can never get over the colors you achieve. geno

Hi nor,

Love your work and i have a starshoot pro v2 myself, though i'am getting a few hot pixels, is there anyway to remove them using darks because my darks don't fix them. I can make a bad pixel map from my darks and that works ok though my darks don't fix my images. If you could help out it would be great, thankyou Jay.

3/16/2014
Fantastic site! Just found it today. I have added it to my favourites as it will be a useful tool for planning observing sessions. Thanks for your effort

Shelley

10/26/2014
Love the site, it really helped me fully utilize the gear that i have got

What I think might enhance the site is if you used an api like open weather map to get the weather and visibilty etc. for the geographic coordinates entered.

1/3/2015
Hi Nor, i think the site is great and useful to read. I like your tonight sky programme and now that Microsoft is available for Apple
I can run it on my Ipad. Cheers Steve

3/19/2015
Why doesn't m81 and m82 plus m42 show on the list for tonight's observations? I don't think I understand what you mean by altitude transit in degrees. Also negative time zone from gmt. That may be my problem. I'm at -113 and 37 St. George Utah. those m's should show up.

3/20/2015
When using the TonightSKy app, only those objects that will transit the meridian at your location between the start time and end time given will be displayed. You can always widen that window by putting in an earlier time than the default.
