  1. Welcome to the Release thread for James Webb for Kerbal! James Webb For Kerbal 1.9.x (1.10.LTE) is now out! This has been tested with Textures Unlimited and TSST for version 1.9.x. This was also tested on KSP 1.10.1 and this mod experienced no issues. I cannot guarantee anything beyond that therefore, this is 1.10.LTE and should be official for 1.10.x once T.U. and TSST are updated.

  2. On a trip down to the south coast, I brought my telescope. It's a beat up old cheap one i got of the internet, which I fixed up at home, a week before. Most nights were cloudy, but Jeb was still enthusiastic. I didn't tell him it was just a hall light he was looking at. When the clouds finally cleared one night, we headed out to set up. Collimation seemed fine, and didn't take long to get a small scope like this ready to use The sky darkened, and we saw lots of stars I saw Mars, some clusters, and a few other things. It's a bit wobbly this old telescope, bu

  4. MacLuky Space Solutions Standing on the shoulders of giants we strive to bring a unique set of parts to the game that enhance and excite the gameplay. Download from GitHub: https://github.com/macluky/MacLuky/releases or SpaceDock: https://spacedock.info/mod/1279/MacLuky's Space Solutions Current release consists of: The IRAS Space Telescope IRAS is modeled after a telescope that was constructed at Hollandse Signaalapparaten, my first employer. The mod tries to stay close to the original. More info in the dev thread: Mod Support:
  5. Hi, i have a contract running since about 8Y (in-game). I should track asteroids endangering Kerbin, but the given orbit is over kerbins orbit, so that the telescope is mapping Duna. The asteroids apeer near the probe on the map, but i'm not receiving any updates about the contract. Should it be like this, and maybe I should let it run for a longer time, or can it be that there is some kind of a bug?
  6. Today, I got a telescope that my neighbor was giving away for $5. It is a TwinStar AstroMark 80mm 16-40x Portable Refractor Telescope, which is normally valued at ~$40. I set it up tonight and looked at Venus, but the image had lots of water spots on it. I took the included lens wipe and wiped off the front lens, but the image did not improve very much. The viewing aperture and a few of the other lenses looked kind of smudgy, but I did not want to try wiping them without knowing more about it. Does anyone have any recommendations for cleaning the lenses of a telescope like this? Also, co
  7. Are there any working telescope mods that anyone knows of? I know Tarsier used to have one that was OK but I'm pretty sure it doesn't work, or at least the forums post about it seems dated. I'd like to build a Kubble, or James Kebb telescope that actually functions (for asteroids, planets, moons). Even having a ground based one would be cool. Thanks for any help!
  8. Hi. Does anyone knows of a telescope mod that allows us to view planetary surface, from orbit, in variable detail (zoom in, zoom out)? I know that SCANsat allows us to build topographic maps of the surface, but what I would like would be to view as if I was, say, low flying over ground, when on a satellite orbiting the planet. Like a HiRes Spy Camera does in the real world. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi, does anybody know about a mod that adds real space telescopes? I would love to have Fermi, Chandra, Spitzer, Kepler, HST and so on in my install, but I can't seem to find any.
  10. I am looking to buy an nice telescope that wont break my wallet too much, but not one of those cheap ones. Anyone have some advice on where to look, what kind of specs im looking at, all that stuff. Asking all of you cuz we're all bloody rocket scientists edit: Anybody know if there is a "special term" for the telescopes that can connect to your computer and have the image on the screen?
  11. So, the current thread about telescopes has inspired me to give this hobby another try. Now, when I'm new to something i start googling for hours, but as I like this forum and its users I wanna ask a few questions about astronomy: Can someone point me to some beginner guides or books? Something to read to get familiar with this topic? What equipment do I need for starting? What Would be a good beginner equipment, what is absolutely necessary? How is this all being done? You go out on the fileds, set up your equip, and then? Do you spend hours just on one object? Yeah,
  12. I'd like to find a good solar filter that is not too expensive (<$150), which can be used to view not only transits, but also see features like sunspots and maybe granulation. So far I've found these: $173.51 $145.00 $129 $89.95 (this one seems perfect but is apparently discontinued. ) $89.00 (this one also seems perfect but the big "Pending Delivery" makes me think it would be a while...) Any advice? P.S. I'd like to have it before the May 9 transit, if it's possible. I've now bought a sheet of solar film, and am waiting for it to arrive in the mail.
  13. So I found this nameless ancient telescope in my home several years ago Link to imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/wcuER because apparently the forum imgur album embed doesn't work and I cannot delete it The big knob have this text on top of it: 20X-60X D = 60mm Zoom Focus Hard Coated Optics Japan Code no. 20-20-61 The small knob have this text on top of it: 60x <- ZOOM -> 20x When I try to look at the eyepiece, the image looks really blurry with several black dots on it So how do I use this for, lets say looking at ISS from Earth? And is it possible to attac
  14. I remember seeing a mod in Add on releases that added a telescope you had to use to find the celestial bodies in the solar system (except Mun, Kerbin and Kerbol). What was it's name?
