Re: Contrail spotting October 2018

Do you guys do videos as well as stills? I'm experimenting with some slow motion video with the S7. They look ok but the cheap tripod isn't helping, wondering if a az4 would help.

Re: Contrail spotting October 2018

Your pics are amazing!!!! That damn air Italy always avoids me 😪 got a nice Emirates 777 this morning en route to Dublin. Got a few specs of dust on my eyepiece but I'm a bit wary of cleaning them.

Not exactly contrail, think it was about 13,000 - 15,000 ft, airbus beluga.

Re: Contrail spotting September 2018

As S7 has no optical zoom, it's either crop slightly and lose image quality or put up with the black outline. Thinking of s9+ when contract ends in February.

Re: Contrail spotting September 2018

Same here, not far from Manchester and everything interesting seems to avoid me 😥 got on or 2 pictures to post, my post processing seems to make the pics worse so will be posting "as is" from now on, hope you don't mind.

Re: Contrail spotting September 2018

That's good to know, got myself a mak102 in perfect condition from a well known auction site for a ridiculously low price, an adapter for my phone and a cheap tripod. Have been looking at the az4 as possible upgrade as I feel this is the area I could make the most improvements on. Where you happy wi...

Re: Contrail spotting September 2018

Been thinking about upgrading, a dob is out of the question as I only have small area for viewing as I am low down in a garden. Thought about a bridge camera for portability but I'm leaning towards getting a skywatcher az4 mount as I am only using a cheap £30 tripod. Been capturing 4k video with the...

Thank you! Bit nervous about posting them next to your super images, but hope to show what can be done with a cheap little set-up.
