Hi Dave,

Unless your camera isn't supported by V2 then there is not too much reason to move to V3 yet.

Hi Steve,

If you are installing the V3 beta, you need to have V2 installed first. So,
just to be clear, there is no license to enter for the V3 beta.

To use the V3 beta, install V2 from the CD that came with your mount. The
license key should be on the CD case/sleeve. After entering the V2 license
you should be able to run the V3 beta. However, I just released the latest
beta last night so it is possible there is a bug somewhere. Please report
back if you can get it working or not. If you still have a problem with it I
will work with you offline to get you going.

What I meant was FB for personal use. The AP FB page is for sharing info with far flung astro users of any events of interest that come up. A lot of people don't like Yahoo either, so this is simply another info portal.

Fully agree, Rolando.
 
    Never used Facebook, have no need or desire to do so, and never will join, as long as there remain the regular AP contact methods of email and web pages (which do need a SEARCH box). I’m used to Yahoo Forums, so I hope that stays, rather than a corporate Forum.
FB isn’t for me. Too old to get addicted to time-wasting  social media, but I guess it satisfies the habits for distraction of the younger crowd.
 
    It will be interesting to see how much traffic the FB page gets, after a period of introduction.

What, and miss out on all the cute cat (feline, not catadioptric) posts? :-)

But really, you can use FB any way you want. Just block notifications from people who have an agenda and those who can't stop telling you what toothpaste they used. It's a fairly effective means of communicating and staying relevant, and astronomy pictures (and classy gear) always generate a lot of interest. Some of it may hopefully kindle enthusiasm for the hobby. 

Astro-Physics joining FB is a good idea IMO, and it should not be a half-hearted effort. With all the publicity going to new Chinese offerings, it's very easy for established leaders of the industry to be overlooked by the newer generations (and I don't mean children, I mean newer generations of 50-somethings, easing into the pre-retirement slope with new hobbies such as astro-photography).

Fully agree, Rolando.
 
    Never used Facebook, have no need or desire to do so, and never will join, as long as there remain the regular AP contact methods of email and web pages (which do need a SEARCH box). I’m used to Yahoo Forums, so I hope that stays, rather than a corporate Forum.
FB isn’t for me. Too old to get addicted to time-wasting  social media, but I guess it satisfies the habits for distraction of the younger crowd.
 
    It will be interesting to see how much traffic the FB page gets, after a period of introduction.

Facebook is a way to reach younger people, but I'm not sure how well this will work. I don't use FB myself and probably never will. I'm not into telling a bunch of strangers what I had for breakfast yesterday ;^))

and a whole bunch of embedded advertising one cannot get rid of no matter what you have liked, unliked, or found some way to block. I have used all sorts of blockers over the years but they still keep on managing to find new ways of shoveling the stuff in, so I have done the best thing for me, I blocked FB, in its entirety. Anyhow, Marj has responded that other more useful (to me) avenues of communication will continue to be employed so I need not worry. Thank you Marj!!

Hi all,


I would like to share this new image done with my  Riccardi-Honders from my yard near Paris.

The target is the large but faint nebula SH2-232 and its neigbors located in Auriga.

A bit lazy to spend so much time to process the raw data acquired in mid January...


Below the link to the full image :
