Re: tutorial on astrophotography

Yeah, I understand how you feel. I hate it that I can't take pictures of mountains, deserts, and canyons here in Indiana.

What do you mean?

Re: tutorial on astrophotography

Based in New Zealand

Um being where there is hardly any light pollution is the key no matter what this tutorial says. I really miss my big dob, but light pollution in Maryland is so bad I gave the hobby up entirely.

Re: cataloging as you go

Oh, and believe it or not, I don't have a smartphone! Finally considering it, though. The monthly cost is what stops me.

Considering iPhone actually!


iPhone? Ewwwwe and more expensive to boot.

Re: cataloging as you go

Canon SLRs have had an audio memo feature for quite a while now, but limited to the more expensive models.

The answer is to use your smartphone, as a matter of fact it does not need to be active. Use the wifi to install apps. Use the GPS to [more]

Re: Trippin' Photo Backup - iPad or?

I agree with you. But to be fair, there are people out there doing amazing work with nothing but an iPhone.

Yep they look good at 900x700 pixels on the screen, and when you dare to make a print is where it all goes to hell or perhaps [more]

We used a 16GB iPad for storage from 4 iPhones during our trip to Italy in 2011. Around 9K JPEGs from the iPhones 5mpx captures.

Re: Trippin' Photo Backup - iPad or?

With my camera a raw file is around 28 megs and 2300 photos would be 64,400 megs or 64.4 gigs. Um I'm not sure you can fit 65 gigs on an iPad. There is a 128 gig ipad but costly. A Galaxy Tab 4 7" is $170 and 64gig Micro SD cards are $38 each. [more]

Re: Raise the rent and communication strategy

Definitely give them written notice with some time to adjust. What does your lease say? Does it specify how far in advance you have to give them notice of an increase? With my wonderful tenants (I mean that sincerely) I give them 3 months notice. I [more]

Re: wow...equipment...

It's amazing how they have all this knowledge about equipment and none of them thought of illuminating the stuff they were showcasing.

Obviously with great gear you don't need light!

Re: Where to park the money

I am not sure that you need to be entirely out of the market with 100% of these funds, especially those that you do not need for the next 8 years. Clearly those within 5 years are understandable, and the 1/2 need in years 6 & 7 are more [more]

Re: Where to park the money

Well as of this morning everything was sold except for stocks purchased less than a year ago. This particular account was a normal brokerage account. Time to hit the tax man!

It was a little unnerving at first, but as I looked at the charts [more]

Where to park the money

My first kid is starting high school this year and kid #2 is 2 years behind. My stock portfolio is only 4% below its all time high in dollars. I think it is a good time to sell and park the money.

Suggestions are welcome as I'm struggling to [more]

Re: Monitor gamma

I would expect the sky in the first photo to be super bright. It is a bright scene and you have shadow detail in the rocks. The photo has just a hair less contrast than I'd prefer personally, but it looks perfectly fine the way it sits.

Re: Anyone succeeded in paying for college?

And one other thing-I began moving money to safe places when each began high school - one semester's money every six months. Tough to do when the market was going up but later it looked pretty smart.

I'm about at that point, although [more]

Re: Anyone succeeded in paying for college?

Our kids are 14 and 12. Without putting in another penny if we earn 5% a year we will have enough for them to attend school for 4 years each, 5+ if they do community college the first year or two. I'm not saying we wont save a little more, just [more]
