    Smile New toy arrived today !



    Christmass has come early this year, my new Cannon 1100d has arrived and its "T" ring.
    Wupee, hopfully the clouds and rain will go away soon. Tuesday night was clear but the moon washed out most of the stars and what the moon didn't the light polution did ! Will have to spend time now with the camera and the software and get used to how it all works.

    Congratulations on the new toy. Today is supposed to be the best day of the week weatherwise, although it won't take much to beat the last few days. I hope you get some clear skies, and I look forward to seeing your images.

    Hi Pete,

    Have you decided on a camera control program yet? If not, may I suggest either Astrophotography Tool (APT) by Ivo, or Backyard EOS (BYE) by Guylain. Both of them are very inexpensive for what you get and do so much more than the included Canon software - EOS Utility. Lots of new stuff to learn, don't hesitate to ask questions.

    Clear skies,

    Hi Pete. Congratulations on the new Canon camera. I hope that your weather clears up soon, and you can give us a report on how your first light with it went for you. Thanks for your new equipment report, and best wishes for some great astrophotos from you soon.
