Maybe.

Right now the BFC, from a technical standpoint is as follows:

Picture a 1976 Pinto that just got a new engine from 1979.

The database was upgraded but only from 4.x to 5.x and it needs to be a little bit higher.


If RYP is willing to invest some money into the site and you’re willing to do some functional and technical requirements, I can put out an RFP or RFQ to some vendors in India that I’ve used in the Gulf. Between the three of us I don’t think it would be a difficult project to manage, and AWS or Azure would make the infrastructure side pretty easy.

getting lumped in with the best of them.....

Louis Farrakhan, Alex Jones and other 'dangerous' voices banned by Facebook and Instagram
New York (CNN Business) Facebook announced Thursday that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who's notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as "dangerous" and said it will be purging them from its platforms.

I guess anyone not to the Left of Lenin is getting banned from Facebook....I was banned back in February of this year - Same as RYP, I violated community standards (whatever they are)...Anyhow, I can see why a raving mad dog Republican like me was banned, but I don't understand why RYP would be? A pretty moderate guy, politically speaking.

You weren't banned for being republican. You were banned for being a plain old vanilla cunt.

Cool. Seems it is old home week. Greetings from the Baleares island of Menorca. Practicing shooting the Milky Way and the odd light house. Cheers.

There's the old 500 rule, but any light in the foreground always seems to fuck that up when I try.

Thankfully not much ambient light in the foregrounds....steep learning curve. Always.

Pardon the intrusion..

The exposure time length vs ISO can be critical in keeping noise low. As the sensor heats (long exposure) noise increases.

Have a look on the web for common solutions. Cooling the sensor is best. But, being practical, keep the camera as cool as possible.

Snip
The noise is thermal noise, which will become noticeable as your sensor heats up during a long exposure. In astrophotography, it's quite a common problem.
Some ways to reduce such noise:
cool sensor down, e.g. by shooting in the cold weather. Note that cold also negatively affects battery life.
set the camera to take a dark frame with same settings (to get just the noise) and subtract it from the image; this can be either done manually (taking a second frame with lens cap on) or automatically by camera (the feature is called Long Exposure Noise Reduction or something similar).
using a stronger noise reduction setting in camera; this may also make the photo softer overall.
shoot several shorter exposures in a sequence and add them together in post processing (this is called "stacking"); you could use DeepSky Stacker for that. Make sure you do not combine this with dark frame technique to avoid dotted trails.

Have fun.
