    Default Gaia Sky v. 2.1.7 download



    This is a very interesting free software offering that I came to knowledge of. Some of the extra/add on database files are very large, ad may tax the graphics system pretty well from what I hear. I've yet to fully install and test it, but on the surface looks very intriguing.

    I've been out with the binos a few times, but haven't thrown a tube out lately. It was absolutely beautiful last Friday night, but the wind was gusting to about 25mph. Nay Nay, no can do for very long!

    Last Friday was almost perfect here too - did a lot of playing with the frac & ZWO - warm but ugly since.
    Started today with cold rain, turned to big sloppy flakes with 4-6" of the ugly white stuff projected. See you online tonight!
    If I figure it out I'll post some processing attempts from the last session.
