    Stargazing A good quality telescope?

    If the image does not look clear visualy it is either a dirty lens or mirror or the mirror needs adjustment. If it looks clear try taking a picture with a cell phone and see how that looks. Here are some pictures I took by just holding my tablet up to the eyepiece, no tracking. I used a 13.1...

    Complaint A disservice to science

    As Greg said "Philosophical discussion is at the mentor's discretion" that is why we have mentor's and adviser's and moderator's on this site. I think they do a good job and if you get a thread locked or deleted you can always PM the group and get a reply as to why.

    If you became brain-dead, would you want them to pull the plug?

    Stargazing Astrophotography photos

    I do not know what is was, it did not move, the flashes were in the same position both times, very strange... Both pictures were 30 second exposures, don't know if there are any stationary satellites in that area.

    A campfire powered generator?

    Look into a thermoelectric generators they would be easier to build, lighter and would run quiet.

    Stargazing Astrophotography photos

    What was that? I was out trying to catch some shooting stars and seen a flash 2 times once while the camera was resetting and then caught the second flash with the camera, was it an Iridium flare? Look to the left and down from the last 2▼ stars in the dippers bowl.

    How to make a girl fall in love with you?

    No, but I probably could teach you how to make her hate you. Feelings are strange aren't they... Just tell her how you feel and see what happens.

    Legality of cannabis

    Just a comment on what EVO said "the majority decides what is acceptable", too bad this is not true, in the government it seems to me that the corporations often decide what is good for us, and in the case of marijuana I think it is the big drug companies that are dictating what laws get passed...

    I will have to do some experimenting next time a storm comes up. I would think the pictures would be a lot better because the video has limited resolution.

    Variable Frequency Generator

    Sorry about the (HiJack) but I certainly would not want the guy next door running a 5 watt signal generator that is spitting out signals all over the place, a call to the FCC would not be fun for anyone.
