    What do you think? Good, bad, suggestions for improvement? This is my first image of M13 made up of about 4 hours of 2 minute exposures from the centre of light polluted Manchester. Skywatcher 150 AZEQ6-GT Mount Altair HyperCam 183C

    This is beautiful too. Such a beautiful texture and I love the bright filament of yellow light near the top right.

    Thank you very much for your kind comment. I did not set out to image the Moon. I was setting up to image Venus and noticed the Moon much lower down and just above the false horizon created by the kitchen extension roof. It was so beautiful I decided to capture a composite image. I never think you can do justice to the quality of light and colour when you capture the Moon in twilight. But I keep trying! George

    Nice conjunction took this quick handheld snap with my Canon 600D at about f=300mm. Can never really do these beautiful conjunctions justice. Just goes to show what a fabulous bit of kit the eyeball brain combo is!

    Wow--this is nice. It looks like it would look through the worlds best eyepiece. It may not be the most detailed image, but it evokes all the details. Quite amazing.

    You have picked up a few galaxies as well. That must be taken with a fair focal length to get that lovely detail on the nebula. Pure LRGB or NB ??

    The above image created from the SDO 'Sun Today' (composite 171,211 and 304 angstrom filters) Credit for base data "Courtesy of NASA/SDO and the AIA, EVE, and HMI science teams." I really like this image as it appears to show Mercury within the corona.

    My HFD at 3.87 arcsecs per pixel is about 3.5, your HFD at 4.8 as/p is 5.99, so it might be worth giving your focus a tweak too. Michael

    Refutes the perception by some that defocusing helps guiding. The PHD2 developers often have to tell users with problems to improve their focusing, going for minimum HFD reading in the Star Profile. Michael

    Just after midnight this morning a camera on my 'meteor rig' snapped this Perseid shooting past Cassiopeia. Canon 400d -EFS 18-55mm lens at f=18mm - ISO 1600. - All on a Star Adventurer mount. Star field - 20x30 sec stacked lights layered with frame containing Perseid.

    Satellites are generally lit for a short period as the sun's angle means it is reflected for a period and then the satellite goes back into the Earth's shadow. It could even be a piece of space junk. There's a lot of it up there.

    Very Much. This was supposed to be stars. But no chance. Still this might have worked.

    A Globular Star Cluster further out than the Magellanic Clouds. Gaia estimate - at least 65,000 light years. Fancied having ago at this for some time. Thought the Robotic Telescope on Mount Teide gave me the best chance of resolving dimmer stars. Credit: COAST robotic telescope - telescope.org - Open University.

    You have some very nice images using your Evostar 120 achromat, I normally image with an ED80 but also have an Evostar 120 achromat. I am considering using and it after seeing your work look forward to the new season. One question have you ever used a 0.85 focal reducer with the 120 when imaging

    Tim, your sketches are superb and an inspiration! Looking through those on show makes me want to spend more time studying some brighter DSO's. Truly excellent! Mike
