Astrophotography

I don't have a camera, but my mate's one is a cannon EOS 200d I am pretty sure.

We don't have all that much light pollution, except that night was moon and smoke from fires so it was polluted some.

Astrophotography

yeah deep sky stacker is what I used. My friend is looking to get a tracker for low ISO high exposures to get better images in the first place.  Most pics here weren't more than 2 sec exposure on 25600 iso due to the narrow FOV on the 600mm lens.  Even with 2 sec there is smear.   Once a tracker is ...

I resized some of the ones I felt were the best shots. _MG_6149-rs.jpg _MG_6180-rs.jpg _MG_6204-rs.jpg _MG_6211-rs.jpg _MG_6231-rs.jpg _MG_6233-rs.jpg _MG_6235-rs.jpg One I tried stacking with reasonable success. It reduced the noise to nothing as far as I can see, lost a little detail but not much....

Apparently it won't be visible from Australia. Meant to happen after the moon has already set here.

Astrophotography

Friend of mine came out last night with his camera gear and few differnt lenses. One being a 600mm tele lens. Just a learing curve on how to set it all up for astro photos. Feel free to look at them all.   There is a bunch of multiples here and there that can be stacked. He wants to get a tracker mo...

Yep it will work in pci 3.0. not much benefit at this stage. Maybe in the future when cards become a lot faster than they are already. Bios update I doubt will give the capability, it's mostly hardware level. Yeah for 16 core the tdp will be higher, no way around that. But 8 core vs the old 8 core t...

New boards will have PCIe 4.0 and few minor features. 

Your existing board with bios update should support them just fine.

Long video but great analysis.  I can't wait to see the final form of ryzen 3000. Going to be a killer product!

L1 is still in KB, usually 32-64Kb, L2 single MBs, L3 as high as 256MB in AMD Rome CPUs

It's actually gone the other way, ram being used as storage and non volatile versions of ram like optane. You just can't beat the speed of ram and it's related counterparts. There is a general rule.  Speed and size are interchangeable but both go up with time.   eg.  L1 cache=  kb in size, TB/s in s...

It's about time really.  Radeon vii has a whopping 1TB/s bandwidth :D Some performance comparison to the old vega. Not too shabby at all. Overall looking to be a great high end card but prices are on the high side, still cheaper than nvidia so there is that. https://www.techspot.com/news/78212-look-...

Interestingly v2 has double the rops and less FPUs, so it has been re-jigged more as a gaming card and bit less compute.  And it has 16GB !!

Maybe what Ultima Thule could look like on the surface.
