Thanks George, spectacular aren't they? You would almost swear that they had planted them specifically to attract tourists ! (I presume they haven't but hey who knows these days? )

There are many more trees in town etc. with even more spectacular colour but one suspects they have been planted in more recent times and that they are cultivars bred specifically for more colour.

As I have Covid (again!) and am stuck in my van for a few days I hope you don't mind me sharing the link to my latest processing of another DSO (Deep Space Object) for anyone interested.

Next up on the Deep Space Object list, IC2944, The Running Chicken Nebula.

This is located just to the right of Acrux, The Southern Cross. Also known in Australia as the Emu Nebula.

First let me say all the best with this round of Covid and hopefully it is a milder case!

Re: your DSO, WOW! Just incredible. Please share links all you want to!

A little over three weeks ago I started to prepare to digitize thousands of slides. I built four period computers from scratch to run three vintage (circa 1996-2000) Nikon film scanners - primarily to use the Nikon SF-200 auto slide feeder. I just don't have the time to manually digitize so many slides, and this allows batches of 50 at a time. I got thrown back in the Windows 95, 98se, 2K, XP, era plus Win 10. Usually dual booting into linux for safe online retrieval of needed files. I found out what interface (SCSI or Firewire), operating system, hardware, plus which software combinations worked best. It won't surprise anyone here that Nikon makes great film scanners. So, here are a couple setups I shoe-horned into my less cluttered darkroom.

shot with the IR converted 5DmkII and the Nikkor 24mm f2.8 ais at iso 2500






















So happy to get the SCSI Nakamichi CD changer, and Panasonic phase change dual working again in Win10 after 20+ years

Great work and those pics could have been taken back in the day !

My late father travelled the world as a fitter in the Merchant Navy in the early 60's (Engine Room for The Blue Funnel Line out of Liverpool) and took many slides that my mum now has somewhere. Would be great to get them scanned. What are you rates ? ;D

I was watching a youtube last week of an American travelling to the UK to visit vintage computer museums

https://youtu.be/3sz4L_h_6I4?si=N8UUjZ-QmsspmEmC

Also, has anyone watched the show "Halt and Catch Fire" ? It's a drama about the birth of the PC era. I loved it.
I think it is now available on netflix.

WOW, an old Shuttle! I always meant to get one back in the day. I probably could have sent you a full blown Win2k setup...

Hi, everyone:

James, great work on a very interesting project.

Regina, super nice job manual focusing the runners. I have done this at the NYC Marathon and it is not easy with these lenses.

Andy, terrific fall colors.

Conservatory Garden, Central Park: It has been under renovations (more like an overhaul) for the past 3-4 years and sections remain closed to the public.

Andy, Thanks for the links! Many of the parts I needed were stored in my darkroom. I built computers for my seven kids from the early nineties until they left home. They were always pushing me to make faster computers for their games, and I for Photoshop. I built so many dual processor machines in the mid 1990s that it is embarrassing. Boards that gave SMP to the masses like the Asus P2b-ds, Pc-dl, or the A7m266-d, Tyan tiger mp, and the legendary Abit bp6 - the last three all taking advantage of enabling smp on non-smp cpus - it was a thrilling time. Or the pencil trick on Durons - that was so cool. sigh

I agree about Nakamichi - best cassette deck I have ever heard. I need to rebuild mine, because the belts dried out.

I'm a Shuttle addict. The Shuttle SN-45G with two scanners piled on top is an Athlon 2800+ 2Gb ram, SCSI and Firewire running Win2K (though I am only running the LS-1000 on it). It has to be the most responsive computer I have ever used - almost instant reactions to mouse clicks. The 5400 dpi LS-1000 scans use to take about 60-70 seconds each on my old dual cpu computer (dual slot 1 coppermine core 750 mhz intel) - now 10-15 seconds with this hardware using Silver-Fast (great software).

I know I'm way late to the eclipse party, but I'm just starting to get my energy back from last weeks procedure. Hopefully, I'll feel well enough to participate more.

I shot this handheld with my 50-135mm through my welders helmet. It wasn't at its peak yet, but I was lucky to get this one as the sun disappeared behind the clouds for the rest of the afternoon.
