I agree. I do-not know why camera designers bother with electrical focus manual mode. There is just no beating a good  manual focus ring. Aperture ring and shutter speed  adjust

First Sun Spots for 2019.

Typical solar minimum sun spots
I am not sure what the shadow to the left of the spots is. May be a cloud although the sky appeared to be clear?

Can somebody tell me how to fix my comp screen.scratch
When I shut down the other night I inadvertently clicked on something that shifted the blue task bar (or whatever you call it)  to the far left of the screen.
How do I get it back to across the bottom of the screen?

I can rotate the entire screen but not just the blue bar]. Mad

Hi Adrian, I was just looking at my settings, right click on task bar go to ( task bar settings ) and on mine go down to ( task bar location on screen ) but my screen looks a lot different than yours. Running windows 10
Just a thought what comes up if you click on customise?

Cheers Peter

If its Windows XP I think you left click on the taskbar a drag it where you want it. To stop it from happening again make sure the taskbar is locked

Post  adrian ss on Sun Apr 14, 2019 2:21 pm

Largish Sun Spot approx 40,000 km in diam with a bright prominence spanning the centre region.
Not very good shots but what can you expect from a hand held un filtered shot at 1000x of something 150,000,000 km away

Jaged a shot of an aircraft flying past the moon just now.
You can just pick out a bit of the jet exhaust on the right limb of the moon.

Aah I finally figured it out. Need to click on the pic to get the full moon shot with the jet exhaust.

Don't sweat getting an answer. The issue was my screen size and resolution. To allow mee to more easily read most basic text on my Windows Surface, I have to change the screen resolution (it is a touch screen so just a couple of finger movements ). It seems that while it also can change the pic size, the text size for this large pic is too small to read easily by the time the pic fits the screen.

Hi Jackie.
Pic taken from my back yard. Aircraft was on final approach approx 7 km away as moon was rising just above my neighbours roof and some local hills.

Moon is over exposed because the 900 was set to capture the aircraft.

Awesome pics. I watched several videos about this camera and all of them are complimentary! As a person who are interested in photography, I would recommend this camera for newbies and post-newbies, this camera will fit all their needs.

Nice pics Adrian,I saw these two planets last evening and it reminded me to say thanks for sharing the Nikon pics.
You might have discovered your own fuzzy comet? Laughing or it might be the mould growing inside your lense Shocked

Mould! Mould! There's no mould in my 900 Grrrrrrrrr.
Am uncertain about the comet notion. a possibility I guess. If not too cloudy I will have another look to night.
    The fuzz ball was not in pics taken on 24/11/19 at 2043, 2044, 2045 and appeared in pics taken at and after 2053.

Enlargement of fuzz ball.

By the Adrian way forgot to mention about things on lenses/screens,back in the old days in hospitals they use to have the xray box,dr's would put the xray up to examine it.
On the odd occasions a patient lung/chest xray would have the preliminary diagnosis of a "shadow" on their lung, only to turn out to be a smudge on the perspex screen.
Some git had used sticky tape on the screen,when the tape was removed and not cleaned properly it would build up a translucent smudged area not seen until the light box was turned on.
The good old days not.

These are single frame snap shots of the Southern Cross region taken April last year and about one minute apart and shows an egg shaped smudge that has moved during taking the pics.
I did not notice it when setting the shots up and have no idea what it may be.

Quick shot of Venus tonight and there appears to be some cloud banding visible...That is about as good as the p900 can get it without enhancement.
