  3. 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.

  11. Planets Updated

    I have only ever caught anything but the Moon as small pinpoint lights, though I have caught the moons of Jupiter and Titan using a Canon 40D and an EF 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 lens. so I am entering a new era with the SW 200P and NEQ6 Pro Goto mount, with the view to possible getting the Jupiter Saturn conjunction on the 21/12/2020, I guess I have some time to iron out any problems before then.

  15. Cygnids in Jully 2019 from Bulgaria Updated

    I joined in the "Beli Brezi" camp near Ardino, Bulgaria, in July. It is an astronomical camp, attended by many students and scientists from all over the country and abroad. I participated in the Meteor Visual Observation Group. We were supposed to observe DEL, CAS, ANT, CAP, PER, SDA and PAU. But with the rest of the group we noticed a lot of sporadic meteors coming from the constellation Cygnus (Swan). We began our exploration and finally concluded that this could be a new meteor shower. It can't be Kappa-Cygnids because they are in August. And the characteristics of the meteors were not the same as those of Alpha-Cignids. My question is, did anyone watch anything like this between July 22 and August 3? If yes, please contact me!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  23. 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.
