emails from the Forum

....are all now going into my spam box - I've noticed the subject header has changed. No matter how many times I 'tell' Google mail it's not spam, each new message goes to spam......



Am I alone in this experience?

Re: Members please respond to this email question

Have message headers - subject lines changed. I've started receiving some with "Stephen Ramsden at Solarchat" - now my messages are heading into the spam folder.

Re: CaK Full Disk and Polar Jets - 27th March

Great ones Mark. ( I was all go for a session yesterday morning, clear blue skies. Hit the sun first time ( well top left of sensor on a 174 ).

Re: FireCapture versus Sharpcap?

Sharpcap licence is 'only' £10 per year, I'm happy to pay that if it keeps the thing available. I've delved into firecapture on a few occasions, but found it too confusing for my little brain - so I tend to stick with SC.

Re: Recommended ZWO camera for CaK

Re: Recommended ZWO camera for CaK

Thanks so much everyone for your comments and advice. I find that each time I interact with this forum, I gain a quantum leap in understanding. The dust cover of my SW ED100 converts to a 50mm aperture mask, so it becomes trivial for me to reach F18. Ken et al, how do you achieve a color image with...
