    Just wanted to remind everyone who's interested the Perseid Meteor Shower will be this Tuesday and Wednesday night:
    http://www.space.com/30216-perseid-meteor-display-moon-jupiter-boost.html
    I think I'll get my Nikon D7200 out and experiment with some time lapse. Hell, may as well dust off the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 and make a night of it!

    You mean so you don't run out of battery ?
    If so when I do Time lapse with it I plug it into a PowerBank I think it's 18,000 it'll go all night (like me :D)

    I missed out. Had meant to put my D800 with 80-400mm on the Alta Pro 263 AT, but unfortunately I got caught up in some other matters of the heart... ;-)

    I am not complaining, but it would have been different fun....

    That's funny you would mention me.
    I get to spend some evenings sitting in the hot tub looking at the southerly sky. It's been a great show since Sunday. Can't imagine what it was like last night though, I was studying the inside of me eyelids.
