Hi Rob: to get your name in first, enter your name first and hit send. In the chat box you will see that your name is entered. You can then send text at will. There are four buttons by the "send" that select font, color, etc. Hope to catch you on NSN soon altho the weather here looks bad for the next week.

Some non post-processed Screen Grabs from my latest Broadcast on NSN, last night.
This is only the 2nd time I have used Miloslick software (still got some learning to do) and 1st time with a Mallincam Video Grabber instead of the cheapie EasyCap.

All with Mallincam Xtreme, ED80, and home made 0.58x FR.
All are screen grabs using integrations between 20 seconds and 50 seconds (I forget which ones were which).

First up is NGC 4945 the 'Great Edgewise Spiral in Centaurus' galaxy.

I am moving my captures from the this last weekend to the gallery as requested and adding the data along with each capture.
Here first I wanted to show the conditions I am capturing under. It is a red zone under a street lamp with a overly lit school across the street.
