Well, this is a bad one, a very bad one…

I tried to take a 20 sec exposure of the stars through our Hill’s Hoist, whilst painting the frame with a red LED torch. Why? Oh, for the October comp of course!

The next photo will have “Something to do with your non-astronomy related hobby” in it.

Cheers

This is a picture of a cumquat. This tiny citrus fruit has skin like a mandarin but tastes like a GRAPEFRUIT. I make yummy jam from them.

The next picture will have some sort of ACROBATIC FEAT in it.

Which Acrobatic Feat do you want?

A step ladder or a full size ladder?

Next photo will have something to do with a broken astro accessory in it

Hi

Here is an image of my "broken" home made solar filter after I left it out in the Sun too long!

The next photo will have “Something to do with rain” in it.

Dennis

PS – Just kidding, following in JJJ’s footsteps of using some imaginative, artistic licence – the solar filter was “broken” by “creative use” of Corel Photopaint, my image processing software…

I reckoned no one would admit to breaking an astronomical accessory, let alone post a photo of one, so I had a play around with my photo editing program. With hindsight, I guess a solar filter is the one astronomical accessory that should not be tampered with, even in a photo editing program.

So, just for the record, the Baader solar film is in perfect condition and was morphed on my computer using some funky filter in Photo Paint. Please do not be alarmed, these filters are incredibly tough and resilient when handled in accordance with the manufacturer’s data sheet. But, as always, take care, take no risks and always use an approved full aperture solar filter – your eyesight is precious.

Cheers

Dennis
