comment Are photolab negatives to digital (e.g. CD) always better than a low cost USB self scanner?
Why don't you try it? Scan one of your negatives yourself and get the same negative scanned by the service. After that you can compare.

comment Is it possible to print a photo so it can be mounted on a globe?
If you print at 300dpi then 1500pixels=1500/300=5 inches. If you print 100dpi, it's 1500/100=15 inches. Check your printing software, probably you can set the dpi (or at least it will print it to you).

I've just added the link to the similar question. The downvote comes from somebody else.

comment Can I take my monopod in my carry-on lugagge?
Once I was flying to watch total solar eclipse. On that plane at least 40 tripods were in the carry-on luggages. Most of them not even put into the small bags. I still don't understand how it was allowed.

comment How do I know what celestial events will be visible soon?
Not all of them, but sometimes it's still very useful for me. Usually I just read: "the next night there will be a lunar eclipse on Jupiter". With this software I can "simulate" the event, find exact time, location, it helps the preparation. At least for me.
