OK, if you are in the broadcast area and want to see an unrehearsed LIVE ((please, please, please, don’t let me make a fool of myself)) television interview then tune in to Meridian News on Monday, 20th November at 6.30pm.

Fred Dinenage will be in the studio and the mobile team will be at the New Forest Observatory, asking questions and showing images with their satellite-link van parked outside the house 🙂

 Did I make a fool of myself?  Yes!  Right at the very end I said about capturing images on film.  Film?  Film?  I’ve never used film.  Why did I say that?  Live T.V. is actually pretty scary – avoid it if you can.

You can read the online version of the article by Michael Hanlon on the Daily Mail website.  If you want a laugh make sure you check out my photo….Never wear a white top when standing next to a white observatory…

The guys over at Curdridge Observatory have done some interesting work with our mosaic image of M31.  We produced our mosaic with the SXV-H9C one-shot colour camera on the Hyperstar lens which has a reasonably large field of view (FOV) of one degree by three-quarters of a degree.

So, what is so interesting?  They have used our image as a chrominance layer with their own image as the luminance layer – the result looks great. 

Make sure you take a look at the original M31 Andromeda Image by Tom How at Curdridge Observatory.  Oh, the Curdridge image is on the left and our image is on the right 🙂
