  1. Past hour
  2. YouTube offers a readily available television interface for people who access the service using an ordinary web browser. This interface is most commonly used by people who have a small computer, such as a PC stick or Linux box, hooked up to their TV as a substitute for a streaming device, but that’ll be changing in the near future.... https://www.slashgear.com/youtube-is-discontinuing-its-tv-interface-for-web-browsers-13591695/
  3. Today
  4. I have mostly TV, but lately I like Baader Morpheus. I have an ES 30 82 degree, and an ES 20 100 for wide field low power. I use a Baader MPCC with them. Now everybody is making 20mm 100s. APM is quite good and low cost. Most optics from China. Even Meade. They've got their coatings down. But of course German optics such as Baader and APM are outstanding. I went through a planetary eyepiece phase, but now I'm done with that. TV delites are outstanding for planets. If you want to just use plossls, Dakin barlows from Brandon are the sharpest.
  5. I downloaded the .zip archive of the 2014 Carver Site 2 disc reference set several years ago and burned the tunes to cd. I can't find that .zip file and I loaned the cd's to a friend who lost them. I found a link to the file on the carver audio site but it doesn't seem to be there anymore. If anybody has the .zip archive I would appreciate a copy, PM me and I'll send you my email addy. Thanks. Mark

    The field of view is (evidently) much flatter with the newer design's, but I can't afford to chase that train, given the difficulties I now have with handling something that size it's not worth investing in any longer (unless I had a younger healthier helper) When I first got my scope, I damaged the diagonal, and replaced it with a televue; I was so impressed that when it came time to expand my eyepieces, I stayed with Televue. I've heard good things about ES, but have no personal experience You?
  8. A friend just got a Celestron 8" CAT. This one has sharp optics. Many I have looked through not great. You a Televue guy or ES?
  9. The usual tools: Clinometer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.plaincode.clinometer great for leveling your washer or dryer, etc. Barometer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.exatools.barometerandaltimeter check how solid the ground is beneath you SPL meter: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.keuwl.splmeter

    Nice; mine is a CAT (meade LX-90 8") and wouldn't travel well. There's a local dark site here (fontanelle forest) that is very very nice
  11. Same here, only I went from cable to hulu and netflix (both of those shows are online). I don't even know the popular shows on cable any longer, as I rarely wqatch the screen; sometimes at night I watch a show before bed, that kind of thing. Those two episodes take the nanny state idea to extreme ( a little bit of reductio ad absurdum, but for purposes of entertainment).
  12. Collective Soul The World That I Know
  13. And this is new how? Other than color of error screen that's been theit pattern since Windows 1.0
  14. I gave up on Windows about 2 years ago. Got tired of the broken updates, updates that takes too long to install and restarts when I'm in the middle of doing something. Much happier in linux, although I understand that it is not for everyone.
  15. I have a 17.5" reflector. I've had my telescope near Sedona. Been looking at Jupiter lately. Saw the white pearls outside the bands.
