Hi all,

Lovely! You must have pretty dark skies, it takes me abut 2 hours to get a stack that looks like one of your subs with my 12"!

Surrounded by glacial lakes, thin air - elevation 2358m (7736ft) lots of sunshine, remote.   

 

The rule of new equipment doesn't apply here!

 

Keep the jet streams away and I'm happy.  

 

Wash the salt from the wounds.

I echo Nick's "lovely!" Dan...also nice to actually "hear" from a fellow poster in your video - it's funny when you've communicated via text over time to hear someone's voice! :)

 

Of course I had to sample it when I saw what I thought was a tad of green in with the blue, re your comments about colour at the end..! :lol:

Thanks Darryl.  You know movie stars, always hamming it up.  I wish I had the writing skills as in your case.  You’ve got to put your travels, techniques and images into a book.  I’ll be one of many to purchase!

 

I'm seeing the blue/green envelope around the nucleus of close-by comets recently. I was surprised to see the colored envelope around 2I Borisov, not for its interstellar nature, for its relatively far-from-us 2A.U. Distance and it’s faint 16.3 estimated visual magnitude.   I could have guessed your extensive work with Uranus and Neptune would have picked out such subtleties early on in the short clip.

 

Best from me from the Northern Hemi
