I was very disappointed to note that Noel Carboni was not credited with all the digital image processing in the text accompanying the Rosette nebula image in the June 2008 issue of Practical Astronomer. I have asked Eddie to rectify this oversight as an erratum in next month’s [July] issue of Practical Astronomer.

In the December 2007 issue of Practical Astronomer the Editor (Eddie Guscott) interviews Greg Parker about his imaging from the New Forest Observatory and his collaboration with Noel Carboni via the Internet.
This is a 6-page interview and makes the magazine worth purchasing :-)
Our thanks to Eddie and the rest of the team at Practical Astronomer for taking the time to interview us, it was a great experience.
The images below are the same as some of those in the article
