Well it's nice to see all the previously-inactive zooites come on today. Maybe stellar & alice will arrive?
Inactive? Nah - we're just spread across the Zooniverse these days! ;)

Happy 7th to us all! This was the first forum I ever contributed to and is the reason I stuck with Zooniverse projects. Where did those 7 years go?  ;D

Stunning sights! / Re: "Starclusters"

Berkeley7 :) Just checked and it's in the collection.

I spoke to lots of people who were doing podcasts, vodcasts and the like over the 2 days - this is one that's just appeared on You Tube. They just wanted to know how I got into citizen science. There's one from Zookeeper Rob too which is well worth a watch! :)

Thanks Bill! That was actually taken through wispy cloud too! I shall pay special attention to those dark spots next time!

Thanks for the comments everyone. Yes, I am very pleased indeed with my new toy. I have still to try it out on some deep sky wide field images but so far so good. And that was through cloud!

First Moon mosaic:


full res

Really pleased with the result. I'm amazed at what my new tiny refractor (66mm diameter) can do.

Here's a close up of Copernicus - you can see the white spots really are craters!

Never mind - at least the scope made it! ;)

Nice work BP! I'm just putting my first Moon mosaic together.

Oh and the "curved feature" is rays from Tycho. The white spots below Copernicus (the big "splash" crater) are real - small high albedo craters (around 8 km / 5 miles in diameter!)

This also. Very sad. Hope they find it.

Got a link for that John?

Really - oh dear. I was rather hoping to find nothing but any help to find the missing plane and help the relatives has to be worth it. Disasters like this are truly awful but I think that the citizen science approach can really help.

Could really do with a zoom feature - something 10 feet across would just be few pixels. I've seen a few isolated examples and dismissed them too.  :-\

14
Some citizen science is urgently needed here to help find the missing plane.

Well some of the project teams were quite happy to have users help out with coding and design (Eyewire is one that comes to mind) but I didn't come across any scientist-volunteer data analysis collaboration. I mentioned Quench to a few people and Rob also mentioned it in his talk. Quench seems to be taking the initiative here.

I don't actually do much Galaxy Zooing these days but I'd rate it pretty high! ;)

And I've just noticed a typo in your quote of my notes I need to go and fix...
