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

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.
