Hi Ashley,

Do you realize that the image you posted was a thumbkin, tiny little dot of a picture, LOL! Look at thr file size.

Hi Ashley,
My first reaction was..."well, that a very tightly cropped shot of Venus...".
Then we all expect Asher to ask for a wider shot!
...just kidding.
Welcome aboard, glad you you found us at OPF!
Getting the hang of inserting images takes a while, and each on-line storage place is a bit different.
As an aside, it's alway good to use the "preview post" button before obligating yourself.
Don't be discouraged! Persevere! Shoot! Post!

Hi Ashley,

Yes, it's come through! flare is a hot spot where there was over exposure or lese a volcano on the moon and it will be name after you, LOL! It's a memorable first picture.

I hoe you and your good husband will both be regular contributers. Do you have a mac or PC? There's a program that does auto uploading for PC's if you are interested. It's by Nikolai who has several threads active right now.

Asher

Hi Ashley,

It works with all website AFAIK. I think it's called *Explorer or Star Explorer. The link is below Nikolai's signature!

But I don't see any noise or banding, so maybe that's a good thing. The optics look great, too.
