  1. So it looks like Sunday night is going to be clear. :ticking:

    I have a wide angle lens I want to try out on the winter Milky Way. Oh, please be clear! :mlp_please:

      Twilight Luna

      I’m sure Luna will help make sure you get the best possible view. :squee:

      @Twilight Luna, if it's clear Sunday night, I'll give Luna a big squeezing hug!  :LunaMCM:

      That's good to hear! :mlp_yay: I hope you get more amazing images! :ticking:

  2. Oh Twilight.  ^_^

      i wonder if it's some play on the chant, it also mentions ladybugs though not in fear of them it seems



    2. Phosphor


      @Lord Valtasar, yeah. I was expecting it to be about her fear of quesadillas. Guess we can add ladybugs to the list.  :muffins:

      ... I have several questions.

  3. Phosphor

    What would you do if you get...?

    I'd buy some land out west, where the skies are free of light pollution.

    How Are You With Needles?

    I've gotten a lot better with needles in the last few years. I use to be terrified of getting shots. Now, I have no problem getting blood drawn... as long as I look the other way and get a Spongebob bandaid.

    1. Tacodidra


      That was cute! ^_^ And great animation as always! :D

    2. Partialgeek514


      I always love these! :mlp_yeehaa:

      I hope it clears up soon for you!! I love seeing the pictures you take!!:ticking:

      @Arc Flash, Say, don't you have a 10 Gigawatt laser? I need to burn some clouds.  :fabulous:

  7. I've had a lot on my mind lately, especially with my plans to buy some land in a couple years. I find moving to be stressful, since I moved a lot when I was a kid. I've lived in the same general area for about 2 decades, so it will be tough but I'm ready to move on.

    100 acres of pine trees and class 3 dark skies is calling my name.

      Good luck, my friend! :kindness: Even if it's difficult at first, I'm sure everything will go well! :rarity:

      Lord Midnight Madness

      I'm looking to move to but it will be a little bit before I can get my place in the country. I hope it goes good for you man. The place i'm at now is my parents house and the internet sucks so a place with good internet is a necessity. lol

    4. Phosphor


      @Lord Midnight Madness, I live in a fairly rural area but I don't own the woods surrounding me. The only internet I can get here is satellite, which is what I'm currently using. It works

      @Twilight Luna, Oh believe me. I'd love to, but I can't move too far away from work. There's some really dark skies within an hour or so drive from my work, so that's probably what I'll go for.

      The ending though:laugh:

      Well, it's not like they're in that kind of relationship

    Season 9 CONFIRMED to be the last season.

    FiM had a great run, but it is time. I'd rather a show end on a high note than continue on and decline into something I no longer enjoy. Good news is G5 will be coming and I'm sure the fandom will continue to produce great content for all of us to enjoy. I saw something about a new cgi movie. I don't know how I feel about that, given my opinion on cgi animation.
  10. A taste of Spring!  :fluttershy:

    Auto or Manual

    I prefer an automatic transmission. I'm not good with manual transmissions in cars but I have no problem with them in forklifts. Ford C6 is best automatic transmission

      @Stone Cold Steve Tuna @Phosphor

      A decent number of observatories (usually smaller ones) do free open nights, you just show up, and the staff will just point the scope at anything interesting in view, and give little informal lectures/information tidbits on what you're looking at. Worth doing a google search for anything local to you to see if there's anything like that.

      I'd also recommend Elite Dangerous, Steve. Bit of a steep learning curve, but they went to town with the accuracy on scale/distances and physics, so it's a great way to see celestial objects up close in a more personal way than Space Engine (cuz you actually have a character/avatar, as opposed to just being a disembodied camera).

      I have played Kerbal Space Program before.

      There were no survivors.

    4. Barnstormer


      @Stone Cold Steve Tuna I *want* to like KSP, but trying to make a truly unique and creative ship just goes to hell because the physics engine is still too wonky. Thus all I can seem to to is make a ship that *should* work in theory, and is pretty as hell, but flies like a dead fish taped to a brick -_-
