This is an image of the whiteboard in my study. In the top left hand corner are 4 numbers taken to a LOT of decimal places. What are these numbers? A good mathematician should get 3, and exceptional mathematician should … Continue reading
From M42 to M78
Only 2 x 20-minute subs with the 200mm lenses – but it shows the way to proceed with this one. Obviously a 20-minute sub is way too long for M42, but just fine for the Horsehead region. So a fair … Continue reading

I managed to get 22 x 2-minute subs using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the ASI 2600MC Pro OSC CMOS camera on beautiful Sirius last night. Given the bright Moon overhead I am very pleased at the final result. … Continue reading
29-hours of IC410/IC405 Data
I put together the 72 x 15-minute subs (UV/IR cut) and 30 x 20-minute subs (L-Enhance) taken on the 200mm lenses with the L-Enhance and UV/IR cut filters – and then took away all the stars to get this result.

What is Consciousness?
Looking at some old emails from way back in 2015 now, 8 years on, the idea I had back then seems better than ever to me now. The reason I wrote it off back then, is that I mailed David … Continue reading
Complex Power Fractals
Another oldie from 1998 – this time dragging out the fractals hiding in complex power iterations.
Complex Power Iterations
Just putting these results from way back in 1997 up here so I know where to find them.
