These captures were made during a near real time viewing session using a SX Lodestar X2c camera and Loadstar Live software. The wide FOV was the result of using an Orion 50mm mini guider at it's native focal length of 162mm. A narrow band 7nm Ha filter was also used to enhance the contrast of emission nebulae. Thanks to Dom for developing this technique for the color version of the Lodestar.
These are just a collection of lunar shots taken with my cellphone, a Samsung Galaxy S4. with an adapter attached to our Zhumell Z12 Dob. They have been enhanced by Google+ so you can see we've put a whole lot of work and money into this (sarcasm). We are not wealthy but we ARE enthusiastic! Gradually, If I stay alive long enough and we come into some cash, we might venture out a bit further into this hobby.
This is where my interest really is. These are all taken with an Explorer 150P or 250PX. Older images were taken on a driven EQ3-2 with an unmodded 1000D, newer ones on an NEQ6 Pro Synscan with an SXV-H9 and Baader LRGB+Ha filter set in a manual wheel.
These captures were made during a near real time viewing session using a small 50mm finder scope and a Lodestar X2 mono camera equipped with narrow band Ha filter. The scope has a focal length of 180mm that allows viewing of large emission nebulae such as California, heart and Soul and Rosette. Using such a small scope does create field curvature problems at the edges and corners, but still presents a nice view of the DSO.
