Alone in the cold blues and soft pinks, I melted away into the snow. Looking on it now, it seems another time, another life, even another place. You sometimes forget, but my pictures help me to remember. Otherwise the experience just slips away, like so many other less important things.

Is the plus still the place to upload the best photo quality and least compression? Seeing that my dinosaur computer ( I think nearly 10 years old now ) mostly functions as file storage and web browser now I’m trying to figure out a way to edit my files using google drive in conjunction with an iPad and running Lightroom. I pay for creative cloud but the ole dino won’t even run it any more, poor thing lol

In effect, I pretty much put the kibosh on taking anything more than mobile photos. I have a pretty well aged and used camera but it still works fine, knock on wood lol Trying to find my way back, ya know? Working with what I have. I do need some opinions on how these test photos turn out though. It’s a fairly large iPad but it’s still small by desktop screen standards and I have no idea if it looks....wonky. Hence my post :D I’m not super familiar with Apple products, so I hope I chose the right file version .

I feel like such a dork saying this, but were Santa to come down my chimney and drop this off : https://www.digitalstorm.com/configurator.asp?id=1766751

under my tree, would it do the trick for lightroom, photoshop, possibly video, 3d and fractal rendering? Oh an photo manipulation because that seems to be way things are going now a days.

I don't know if it would get my creative juices flowing again, but it's gotta be a hell of a lot better than the 9 year old dinosaur I'm using now, besides the fact that lightroom doesn't work AT ALL anymore, yet I'm still paying the subscription lol This is pretty much my only choice among the lovely beasts living on that site. Like I said, it's Santa putting this together not me, but I would like some input if it's not too much trouble, before I put it on my list :D

Had my first imaging session with the new-to-me Celestron 8" SCT. The first target I have imaged with the scope is an oldie, but a goodie. The object is M51, the Whirlpool Galaxy in Canes Venatici. More information provided on my blog along with a comparison of the same object through my Newtonian Telescope taken 3 years ago. http://adirondackastro.com/2017/04/m51-whirlpool-galaxy-04-15-17/
