Unfortunately it was cloudy here in Ottawa, Canada last night and we missed the Lunar Eclipse. :( The pictures of Orion and the Pleiades were 10 - 15 second exposures taken with a Nikon D3400 DSLR. I am actually in pretty heavily light polluted area., city suburbs, Level 7 on the Bortle Scale.
Very scary, it seems with this type of non seismically generated tsunami it is much harder to provide any kind of alert. Appears there was little to no warning at all.

Welcome to the forum! We have quite a few members here interested in both lasers and astronomy.
Already have some threads relating to astro gear and telescopes:
Post your telescope here: :D
I got a new keyboard recently, a Corsair K70 RGB MK.2, and it works great once Windows had loaded but the BIOS won't recognize it so I am completely locked out of changing any BIOS settings. From what I have read some gaming keyboards have this issue and some have a compatibility switch...
Awesome logo. Think it's time for a new one myself, we've usually upgraded every few years. Not a huge fan of the current one tbh. This was always my favorite, some here might still remember it:
(Sorry, I don't remember who made this to credit them)
Unfortunately I do not have those pieces of equipment to test with. The fans have 4 wires.
^Yeah that's it. Yeah, I looked through the BIOS settings but there are very limited options with this motherboard. There don't seem to be any options relating to the fans.
I will try plugging the CPU...
I have been having this strange problem with the CPU fan on my PC lately. Right from boot I get an error message "0135: Fan Failure" and the fan immediately speeds up to maximum speed. No matter what I do it will stay at full speed for as long as the PC is on. I have been monitoring the system...
Could do something like that where the prize is a really epic laser, like a big frame whitelight ArKr. Some of the revenue from ticket sales would go towards buying the laser and the rest goes to the forum. Could be a new laser item every month. First the ArKr, then maybe something from Sanwu...
Another temporary workaround you can use is if your display has a "Reader Mode" it'll skew the colors over to the red wavelengths and dim the display somewhat while reader mode is activated to make it easier on the eyes. Probably will look slightly different on every monitor, but the option...
Very minor issue, but it seems all animated gif avatars no longer play. It just shows one frozen frame, so for now I changed my avatar as the previous one doesn't make much sense without the animation playing. :D
I like the lighter theme, for some reason I always found it easier to read. Glad to see the rep system replaced with the likes, hopefully this focuses on the positive posts and can avoid all the stupid drama that has plagued the old rep system in the past.
