seems PB have reduced their prices drastically, it's about 5 bucks/month now. Still not paying it :))

Same here - will only go back if it's free. They should have been making enough money from the ads.

Agree. I'm currently using TinyPic to upload to this forum. Its 'Photobucket light' essentially. I only use it to upload here and for nothing else.

Well, I have six refractors if you include the two ST80's, four Mak's (although one of them is a rubbish Bakelite 'Omegon'), two Newtonians and an SCT. Some of them are now officially retired though lol.

The Starwave is nice, I wanted a four inch refractor with minimal CA. An Explore Scientific triplet I looked at was too heavy, so the Altair ED doublet fitted the bill at four kilo.

I haven't closed my PB account but I find Imgur a much better site.

It loads quickly and there isn't the sluggishness like with PB.

Can act a bit odd in Safari 12, but that's WebKit for you.
