    You'll quickly get fed up with the bloody shield alarm going off.. You'll need plenty of iron, Herudium, plutonium and zinc to repair all the launch and plasma engines. Basically keep using the orange beacon things until you get a trasmission tower pop up, it'll be one with a house icon and not an observatory or the one that looks like a screwdriver,

    It only work on planets that have a single alien (gek) race on it. Up to 42 slots so far....

    It's a bit like Graffiti really... My mate does it and print a lot of the stickers that people use (a couple of those he's printed).... The next few weeks looks pretty good for Astrophotgraphy... From Thursday onwards the moon will be rising late enough to give a good window for some nice dark skies... So from Thursday 22:00 (ish) until midnight is great and from then on roughly an hour more each day, through until the 8th when the moon sets at 22:00, witht e 14th being the last nigth to get any sort of good conditions until the 24th.

    Yeah I'd go along with that...on a wide lens you tend to notice a lot of star trails at the edges if you use the rule of 500... I tend to go for 5 seconds under the or something like that... think i'll probably get a star tracker of some sort...

    yeah it does move, but not much at 200mm Where to point? you can just about make out where Andromeda is... using star hoping its fairly easy to find... started practising and can find my way round the night sky.. you just need a couple of of constellations that you know and you can jump from one to another to find what you're after. Cropping wise, yeah It is, thats probably 1/8th of the full image your 100-400 should be fine

    Didn't track it at all! Basically fired off 140 2 second exposure @ 200mm f/2.8, then did 20 dark frames (same settings but lens cap on) and 2o bias frames (same settings but at fastest shutter speed and lens capon) and chucked them all into deepsky stacker and let it do it's thing! Want to have aproper go at doing it with my sigma 150-600 but its f6.5 so might be a bit slow..

    Its quite addictive! Just a pitty the windows for doing it are typically so small.... seems to be sods law that you get a clear sky and the moon is up....

    My first crack at Deep space photography, Andromeda Galaxy by Keety, on Flickr shot on my 5dMk3 and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens Roughly 140 Light frames at ISO 6400 f/2.8 2sec and 20 Dark and Bias frames. This could get quite expensive!

    I'm guessing that it's getting all of that working in an online universe with other player interactions that's the hard bit...
