    Ah too bad he sold it. They can easily be converted to astrophotography use by adding a wedge to them. If you want to learn more, i suggest joining the following sites. stargazers lounge cloudynights ice in space.

    Strifus. yes that is omega centauri. It was taken using a 17" planewave CDK located in coonabarabran (i use itelescope which has remotely operated telescopes in siding springs and new mexico) The moon shots are taken in my backyard with a 5" refractor. As for tracking mounts. ones for just a camera such as the vixen polarie and ioptron skytracker are around $500. if you want to add a telescope to it, i'd recommend at least a eq5pro equatorial mount which is around $1100

    No special camera settings (although the camera itself is special) usually at least 30 shots of 3-5 minutes each.

  11. Do you have a tracking mount? If not you'll want a short fast lens.

    Personal alarms

    That's what the police are for. Didn't you know that they can instantly teleport to any disturbance?

    Another plane missing

    Wasn't the super sophisticated computer the cause of a crash back in the early 2000's?

    It's only those that emit the loud high pitch beeping. under the letter of the law really bright flashlights come under the same prohibition. I love this country.

    Are now prohibited weapons in NSW? When did that happen? I remember chubb given out bags of them just for getting a quote on a home alarm system.
