Okay, this is strange.
I let some of my friends test the new release but it wouldn't work for any of them.
Crashes on loading the map.
I've been trying to get it work for the last 12 h but so far I wasn't able to fix it.
2 to 3 h compiling time doesn't help this at all.
I'm very sorry - Halloween occured to me as the perfect release date.
As soon as I figure out what the problem is I'll notify you.
Again,
I'm sorry. I hope all of you had a nice Halloween though.

You're welcome and same to you!
Really love your DSO pics :)
I'm pretty much restricted to planetary imaging and very bright DSOs with my equipment.

Good evening, Nicolas. Thank you so much for the fave on The Quiet Man (1) and The Quiet Man (2). I'm happy that you like Bruno Peter's portraits. I attended his memorial Saturday. In the evening we boarded a boat, and had a burial at sea in Monterey Bay for his and wife Patty's ashes. The day was sweet and sad. It was very nice to be among his family and friends.
Regards,
Ed

You're welcome.
I really love the shots you made :)
By the way, how high in the sky are Jupiter and Saturn for you right now?
Saturn is really low for me for example and the Cassini Division is lost to the atmosphere.

Thanks :) (Smile) Likewise, you've done some great astrophotography, as well.

They're both around 40-ish degrees above my horizon, so on a good day I can usually resolve a lot as far as cloudtop details or the Cassini Division.

Thanks.

40-ish sounds really nice. For me Jupiter is a bit over 20, Saturn and Mars are below 20.
In 2 years Mars will be well over 40 for me though, hopefully there is no global dust storm then ^^
I guess I'll have to wait for Saturn and Jupiter some years before they get to the 40 deg mark.
Today I managed to find Venus with my XT8 during the day and got some ok results despite the strong wind.
Probably going to try get some crisp images of Venus over the next 2 to 3 months.

Good evening, Nicolas. Nice to hear from you; it's been a while. So many changes going on here on different levels. How about you? Thanks for the fave on The View From Ryan Ranch in Trance (2).

I'm quite well, but busy. I got my B.Sc. last summer and am currently putting most of my time into passing exams for the my M.Sc. with good grades.
Every now and then I take a look at DeviantArt.
Hope you are good and well.

Hi, Nicolas. You're always one of the first to fave my new stuff, and I really appreciate it. As you can see from the date on Failure To Communicate, it seems to take months for me to finish anything new like this (though I'm usually working on a few things concurrently). I hope you're well and doing fine with your studies. What are you majoring in nowadays, if might ask?
