    Welcome! Please share anything you find, photos you take etc. I'm sure a lot of us are jealous of your beautiful skies! Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum, yep Gaborone will be lovely. We are currently experiencing unusual warm weather for this time of year, we are nearly in June and still warm enough to wear tshirt and shorts in evening. and you are situated just little higher then we at Hartbeespoort, so you must be having a lot of fun......cheers, Zedd

    Hi Guys,
    I work in JHB but live in Pilgrim's Rest (I only get home about once a month though). I'm pretty much a beginner so I'm looking forward to learning a lot here

    16-2.jpgI don't have a functional telescope yet but I've taken my camera outside a few times. The light polution in Johannesburg has been a problem but it this one came out a bit better than the early attempts.

    It was with a Canon EOS1100D. The lens was a cheap Tamron 70-300mm zoom set at 70mm. I took 20 5 second light frames and the same number of dark frames and stacked them with Deep Sky Stacker.
