  • Okie-Tex!

    Well, I've certainly made up for lost travel time recently! After taking the summer off from traveling I've returned to the circuit a bit with two back-to-back trips last month that I've just returned from this weekend (so, sorry for all those...
  • Hot Pixels 2: The Heuristics

    I know it sounds like the name of a bad Sci Fi sequel, but as of daily build 10229, the Starlight Xpress plug-in has a new hot pixel elimination feature. The old hot pixel feature is still there, but I'm encouraging users to try out the new "Heuristic"...
  • The Joy of Unguided Imaging

    When I first started imaging with a Paramount ME, I had no way to guide on my Mac and so I prided myself at going unguided. As time passed, I started writing more and more camera plug-ins, and I needed to guide to test things out, and honestly, I'm...
  • Backlash and Focusing

    If you are having trouble getting consistent focusing results, please READ THIS BLOG! I recently finished working on a focuser plug-in for the Rigel Systems nFOCUS/nSTEP stepper motor focuser controllers. They are very versatile products that work with...

  • New Scripting Hotness

    There is a whole bucket of goodness in the new 10.5 update of TheSkyX, and the latest daily build has a new feature that is near and dear to my heart. It's something I've been wanting in TheSkyX myself for quite a while, and a customer came up...
  • Oh... Canada!

    I'm writing this blog from a Starbucks not TOO far from my mother-in-law's house in Louisville, KY were I will likely be stranded for a few days. I'm limping back from the Canadian Astrophotography School and AstroCATS expo that took place...
  • Time to Stay Home Awhile!

    I'm back from the Texas Star Party, and have not quite caught my breath. The weather was really great this year, and my only regret was I was shooting a little over sampled for the seeing. Still... everything looks great on an iPhone, or shrunk down...
  • Live from Ft. Davis!

    The Texas Star Party is now in full swing, and I'm here for Software Bisque on the north field. This is the first year they've made an allowance for the vendors who are "demonstrating" as opposed to "selling stuff", and I'm...
  • NEAIC & NEAF 2016

    I'm back. In more ways than one... Apologies to anyone who missed me at the Winter Star Party, but it could not be helped and unfortunately the death in our family has put me out of work off and on for quite a bit over the last couple of months and...
  • Traveling Adventures in Imaging

    Today is the first time this year I've been home for two solid days in a row. I've been a busy bee, and it's a good thing I do most of my work on laptops! January 1st, I drove with my family to Key West Florida for an early morning ferry ride...
  • Buddy's Checklist

    I'm spending the week in it's entirety down at my observatory in South Florida. My neighbors and I are having a "closed star party" kind of event where some invitees from the industry and fellow imagers are camped out around the grounds...
  • Chiefland Star Party 2015

    I'm back from the Chiefland star party, and about a week behind on everything else now. I thought a blog on the event was in order while the week was still fresh in my mind and before I bury myself in code slinging and debugging. I've been to...
  • AIC 2015 Announcements and Recap

    My body is still trying to operate on three time zones away and I have over 1,000 unread emails (mostly spam of course).... but I'm back, heavily caffeinated, and getting back to work. This year's AIC reboot I think was fantastic. Close to 400...
  • Backyard EOS and Nikon Support

    The next today's daily build for Windows (build 9241 and later) has a new X2 plug-in listed under O'Telescopes . With it, you can select Backyard EOS or Backyard Nikon (edit: the Premium Edition is required for the TCP/IP interface) as the camera...

  • Guiding Best Practices

    While it is true that we have a very thorough users guide that details how to guide with a Paramount, recent events have led me (and others) to believe that a little tutorial or review of guiding best practices is in order. Exhibit A to the right is my...
