Can I recommend a slightly beefier mount? The EQ2 mount is ok, but add the weight of the 7D and things will get a little wobbly. The EQ3-2 mount is very good. I used one on my 150mm Newtonian for a number of years. You can still get a motor for it as well.

Have you looked at the Skywatcher refractors? They are very good, and don't have the collimation issues you get with reflector telescopes.

You can also mount your 7D direct to the mount, and use the lenses you already have.

A photography challenge for a year
I started one of these about 3 weeks ago, and so far am really enjoying it. For me, its more than taking a photo a day. I am using it as part of my recovery from depression.

Started a Blog here on EPZ. I have not had time to upload the last weeks photo's as its just been too busy, but will get it done either today or tomorrow.

I say go for it!

Very true. He was one of the unsung hero's of the war. I heard he died of cyanide poisoning. Wonder if it was by his own hand or the state?

Nice one!! Have seen it many times over the years. Each time I still find it hard to grasp that there are 3 or more people in it when it tears by at 17,500mph!!!

Hi Cathy

That is so strange - I watched that very thing last night!! My other half, Charlotte posted it on Facebook and told me it was worth watching. Really sums it up well I think.

Have you tried the local police? Maybe some kind person handed it in at the police station? Just a thought - hope it turns up.

My Journey to Recovery
Hi all.

Thank you all for your support and kind words. I would say its good to hear that some others can relate to my situation, but you know what I mean!

I knew that I would find support here - its that sort of place, and for that I am grateful. I start today - charged my camera batteries last night, and have it in my bag, so all being well, I will get out at lunch time and take some shots. First blog entry will be with that image tonight.

I know the next few months are going to be hard. We have my mums house down in Norfolk to clear and sell (I live in Derby, so its 165 miles each way). Clearing out all those memories from the house I grew up in is going to be bitter sweet. On the one hand, we will be finding lots of memories, and reminders of mum, but on the other hand it will be the closing of a big part of my life.

Thanks again all of you.

My Journey to Recovery
Thank you all for your kind comments - it means a lot to me, it really does. I needed to put this out there, and try and kick start my recovery. My mum would hate to see my like this, so for her, and my family I need to start fighting.

My Journey to Recovery
Hi fellow EPZ'ers.

I have been toying with posting this for some time, and I now feel ready too - please bear with me here, and note that I am not fishing for sympathy. Its just something I feel I need to share - sorry if its long!!

18 months ago, I was diagnosed with severe depression, OCD and anxiety. I went through several months of CBT therapy (finished that in April this year), and am now on anti-depressants, something I didn't really want to do, but actually seem to be doing some good I think. To sum it up, work has caused me nearly 3 years of stress, with 'at risk' letters coming in each quarter, and no support from management - you know the story! I know most people deal with this, but I seemed to have reached a breaking point, which resulted in a nervous breakdown of sorts. I won't go into details, but it was a very dark time.

All through this, and as part of my CBT I was encouraged to do things I used to enjoy before, and try and find some time for myself. I put myself in a bubble - not wanting to go out from home, not socialising with friends, and not pursuing any of my hobbies. I just didn't want too. I felt safe in my bubble, and didn't want to leave. I forced myself to go to a party with my other half earlier this year, but left early as I was physically sick. I still haven't been out with my camera 'properly' for a year or more.

To cap it all off, on October 5th this year, my mum passed away after a very short 3 month battle with cancer. I was very close to my mum (my dad and I have not spoken in 23 years, despite my efforts), and losing her has devastated me and my immediate family. My partner has been hugely supportive, and I would not have got through the last 18/24 months without her. I thank my lucky stars I have her. I am still grieving, and undoubtedly will be for some time to come. I am having difficulty accepting whats happened, and am puzzled that I have only cried once since her funeral 6 weeks ago.

So - the reason for this post. I now need to get my life back on track. Taking the first step is difficult, and the last 8 weeks have really tested me. However, I need to start, and now is the time, and this post is to let as many people know as possible - if I don't talk about this with people other than family, then there is more chance I will fail.

So, I have made the first steps already. I have been clearing out my photo folders on my HD's. So far deleted about 1500 images, none of which I, or anyone else will miss. Obviously not the family ones, but early landscapes, and any my other 'experiments' etc!!

I am going to start a Blog, here on EPZ to document my progress, as much for me as anyone else, so I can look back and see how I am improving. I will post a link when its up and running. I aim to post one picture a week on it that I am happy with. Will also post same pic on the main EPZ gallery, with a summary of what got me to the final image.

I have signed up to Blipfoto (user NigelWB) and want to try and complete a Project 365. Many people say don't force yourself into things, but part of the CBT i did was to MAKE myself do these things, and then the enjoyment will return in time.

So there you have it. These are my photo related aims - the others may appear on my Blog!! I got myself a new lens last week - out of necessity, as my old Sigma 17-70mm lost its battle with the sand introduced to it by my son in August! (Got a Canon EF-S 17-55mm f2.8 BTW) and am hoping this will kick start the process.

Sorry to have rambled on - as I said, I needed to say this, and here seemed a good a place as any.

Thanks for reading guys and gals,

Poor Credit Card!!
I have finally done it!!! I have this afternoon ordered a Canon EF-S 17-55mm f2.8 from MPB Photographic!! Second hand, and it was reduced by 160 to 439!!

Couldn't let it go, so ordered it - my early Christmas pressie, as my poor old Sigma 17-70mm is on the way out, thanks in no small way by my 5yr old son kicking sand over it in August!! Focus is really hit and miss on it now. Sad really, as it was a cracking little lens. However, i think the 17-55mm will make up for it!!

It should arrive before the weekend!! Soooo excited!! Was toying with the idea of a 24-105mm L, but I really cant see full frame in my future just yet.

The kids of today.....
A famous person said the following:

"Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers."

Who said it . . . . . . . . . . .

Socrates, about 2500 years ago . . . . seems things don't change that much!!

How old is the digital camera you are currently using?
I still use my first (and only!!) Canon 400D - think its about 8 years old now. Nothing wrong with it at all, although my Sigma lens is starting to play up a bit!

Lens help?
Hi Kim,

Not a dumb question if you dont know the answer!

So its a zoom lens of 70mm to 300mm. Minimum aperture is F4 at the 70mm end, and F5.6 at the 300mm end. It sounds like at the 300mm end, it can take close up images (the macro 1:2 indicates a subject will appear twice as small on the sensor as in real life)

I imagine there are a couple of 'things that turn'! The zoom ring and a manual focus ring. The zoom ring will have the 70-300mm markings on, and the manual focus may well be blank. There may also be an Auto Focus on/off switch on it too.

Stick it on your camera and have a play around with it in the garden perhaps - use the full zoom range, but remember the high the the zoom goes, the shorter the shutter speed you will need to keep the image sharp!! Good luck!!
