Thanks for that, I have been looking at gaming laptops but didn't see many 2in1 versions, and I like being able to use the digital pen in photoshop. I can use the lightroom mobile app to use a tablet in the same way but I don't think I do that with photoshop. Will have to wait till later in the year now tbh
Will check out the video later

I upgraded my PC around 6 months ago as my previous one was struggling with the latest version of Photoshop, Lightroom and Luminar AI.
I found this Youtube video useful in giving me an idea of which PC to look for based on GPU, CPU and RAM requirements:

I ended up buying a gaming spec PC, and it works really well.

Another related question, what do you guys see as minimum requirements for an editing laptop?

I bought my daughter a 2 in 1 jobbie, I put photoshop on it as she's using it a lot for coursework, so much faster than my laptop and the touchscreen with a digital pen is brilliant! So much better than my wacom tablet.

But what spec would I need, I'm not a big photoshop user, but I have been playing with focus stacks, and 8 images is about the max currently for this, also the same using deepskystacker but I do want something that would cope with a lot more images without taking a week. I think 32 images + calibration frames would be about the sweet spot.

Is it unrealistic to think I can do this with a laptop?

Anyone got any experience with astro tracking mounts?

I've been trying to get some shots of various deep sky objects with my 75mm 1.8 but with 3.5 sec exposures it's a lot of work stacking loads of exposures and results are still pretty meh, a stack of 8 images of andromeda is the best I've got so far but it's still grainy, I reckon I'd need 32 exposures to get anything decent

Ideally I'd like something small and fairly cheap so I can take it fishing for some wide field milky way shots, but I would like one up to tracking for 30 sec exposures with the 150mm equivalent lens

Annoying isn't it
I was watching a carp you tube vid the other day, reminded me of picking up the phone when someone was on the Internet in the early nineties with the focus motor jitters and clicky aperture stepping

Thanks duggs, I've got a shotgun mic that fits into the flash housing but yes as you say you can hear the motor!

I can't really help with canon lenses but when video is involved you have to look out for noisey motors. Some of my lenses I can only use for video if I can use a lav mic, or a shotgun mic on an extension lead away from the camera. You'll do well to search for video specific reviews of any lens you consider

Hi, I am looking for some advice based on experience and knowledge of what Lens to upgrade too.

I have a Canon 80D and have been using a EFS 18-135mm USM lens, but wanted to get a better zoom, possibly up to 300mm.

Can anyone recommend a high quality lens (for photography and video too)?

Many thanks.

This is so true.

I take pics in high q jpeg and raw with a 36mp camera. Each file is 40 times the size of an old 3.5 floppy disk. And yet I don't delete anything.

Bought the big camera fishing hoping to get some shots of the hobby/s I saw snatching dragonflies last week, haven seen a glimpse of them this week but I did test the stabilisation last night.

8 seconds handheld was easy, 15 seconds was possible leant against a tree at 12mm (24mm equivalent)
