  2. smisy's smartphone pictures Updated

    I have Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, alt-az mount. I take pictures  and videos with my Huawei P10 smartphone with ocular projection, used 25mm plössl eyepiece. It gives 80x magnification, that's not bad for Messier objects. They can be captured only with one shot. Of course with this one shot comes not so many details, as it does with stacked images. Somehow I would say, these pictures looks like the really look through a telescope, for example a sketch.

  13. First Imaging Attempt Updated

    Just before Christmas 2015 I began taking photographs of DSO's using my SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm refractor, alt-az mount and Canon 600D DSLR.
    To date all images except the Rosette Nebula have been taken using ten second exposure lengths and at ISO 1600.
    Image processing uses Deep Sky Stacker and StarTools software.

  14. Photos from Bury Updated

    This folder contains photos taken from my house. The view is quite obscured to the west and south so I must wait for things to come to me.

  15. Next Attempts at DSO's Updated

    I have been imaging using my SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm refractor on a Go-To Synscan alt-az mount and Canon 600D DSLR since just before Christmas 2015. Having since read, "Astrophotography on the Go" by Joseph Ashley I have been inspired to use longer exposures, typically 30 seconds at ISO 1600 and to take more images per object (up to 200 light frames) weather permitting. I use Deep Sky Stacker to collate frames and subsequently process the master image using StarTools. I hope this album of images shows improvement upon my earlier attempts.
    Since April 2017 I have been using a SkyWatcher Star Adventurer (SA) mount on an old Celestron heavy duty tripod to image DSO's with my Canon DSLR. At Christmas 2017 I received a modified Canon 700D DSLR and an Astronomik clip-in Ha 12nm filter to complement my UHC filter. I am continually impressed by the accuracy of the little SA mount.
    In January of 2018 I began using my old CG-5 Go-To mount to take images and later swapped the original Celestron polar scope for an modern SkyWatcher type which has made polar alignment faster and more accurate.

  20. Pulsar Motor Drives Updated

    These are photos of my homebrew motor drives in my Pulsar 2.2 metre observatory. The motors are controlled using the Lesvedome ASCOM driver software. I used stepper motors but most people use basic geared DC motors. The shutter drive is powered by a 26 volt LiFePO4 battery. When the dome is in the parked position, the battery is automatically recharged. The dome drive motor uses power from a mains-driven14 volt 20 amp DC PSU. The shutter drive connects to the main controller via wireless, using XBee modules. The main controller has a safety system built in that performs start-up checks for the dome and shutter latches and shutter battery voltage. It also connects to a Hydreon rain sensor and a cloud gauge and will close the shutter if unsafe conditions are detected.
    I am happy to try and answer any questions if anyone would like more information.

  25. My quest for DSOs Updated

    My first two years at Deep Sky Astrophotography. Still on the (steep) learning slope, but some of the things out there are just amazing.
    All the images are taken from my light polluted, suburban, back garden with an astro-modified Canon 700d mostly at prime focus on my SW 200P originally mounted on an EQ5 but lately on an Alt Az EQ6.  For most of the wide field images a 200 mm Canon lens was used. The EQ5 did have added motor drives which were replaced with the Astroeq belt driven stepper motors in a quest for greater accuracy.
