im getting a 60 gb ssd to load my OS and processing software in it.=D

What are you going to put on that drive? Just asking because I built a new system last weekend with a 120GB SSD. After loading Windows 7, Lightroom v4 beta, Photoshop Elements, and MS Office Home & Student (Excel & Word) I have 50GB free. That thing fills up fast!


7DMKII, 5DMKII, Canon 17-40L, Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro, Canon 70-200mmL f/2.8 II, Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Zeiss ZE 50mm Makro Planar, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, Kenko Pro 300 DG 1.4x TC, Canon 2X III TC, 580EX II x2, YN560, RF603's

Did you turn of hibernate mode?

If not Windows 7 will reserve a chunk for hibernate and for page filing, those are easy to remove and will free up quite a bit more space. (Generally keeping the page file is a good idea though).

So for example, if you have 16GB of ram, if you turn off HIbernate you will gain 16GB back on your SSD.

Look into disabling hibernation and a few other items if you don't use them and it will free up quite a bit of space. I have the same programs (minus Elements) and am only using 20GB.

I followed this guide.

Yeah, I got back over 8gb by disabling hibernate mode. I never liked it either. Plus there's a few other tweaks you can do on the SSD to get some space back, but hibernate was the one of the largest for me. That 60gb SSD will hold more than enough. I got back about 22gb of space on my 128gb SSD after those tweaks and about 12 for my 60gb SSD.

I didn't do any tweaking yet. Thanks for the link silvrr - going through the guide now.

seriously, is that for an immersion project or the like? it would make a great technical write up, I bet.

The image was definitely one of the highlights of AIC, Advanced Imaging Conference in San Jose, California. Nothing but top images in astrophotography and people using astro optics. My picture was the one in the Astro Physics booth. 2 feet x 9 feet. You could print it at native resolution on a 12 foot billboard and it will show plenty of detail.

Look for it on the upper left hand pic of the link.

How do you like the FX-8120? I know it is more like a quad core in real world use. Microcenter has a pretty good deal on this CPU with free mobo and I am considering.

I just built a budget/speed system based on AMD's AM3+ socket. I hope they develop on this for a while, unlike Intel that changes sockets every week. I am hoping to be able to swap out for a faster CPU on the AM3+ socket, add more RAM, and switch to a SSD in two or three years. The disasters in the far east, have really effected the price of hard drives.

--AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor
--HIS IceQ X Turbo H695QNT2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit video card
--CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
--ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
--(2) 500G SATA6 Drives in RAID-0
--(1) 3T External Drive
--RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Power

160mm you can get used for mid 20 grand when they're available. Wait list is at least 10 years back for one of the 7.5 scopes, or you can go with a TEC160FL which has a shorter wait time. They're not making the 160FL now since one of the glass types is not available. Might change in the future though. AP900 you can get almost off the shelf.
