    I recently aquired this lens, a 200mm F4 Asahi Super Takumar and did a quick M42 with it. I stopped down with a step down ring (to F5.4) and I'm not sure if some of the background colour is vignetting from that or if its the dust that surrounds the nebula. 60x 1 minute Lights 60 x Darks 100 x Bias 100 x Flats Imaging camera: Canon EOS 500d (unmodded) Mount: HEQ5 Stacked with DeepSKyStacker. Processed with Pixinsight. The next thing to try is a powerful UV filter to try and reduce the violet chromatic abberation. let me know what you think.

    Up for sale in pristine condition is my ZWO ASI120MC usb2 colour camera. In excellent pristine condition, with no marks on either camera or box. Due to a shift away from imaging this is now no longer getting any use off me. Bought just under a year ago off FLO. Asking for £85 which includes postage in the UK only. Payment via PayPal friends and family, or Direct bank transfer. Thanks for looking! Gus Now Sold. Many thanks!

    This was a bit of an experiment - but by the time I'd finished with some lunar stuff I was getting pretty frozen, so I didn't really complete it. The idea was to get Uranus with moons using longish exposure, then do Uranus again with Powermate and shorter exposure, then do a composite having rescaled the background. I did the first shot at native 1000mm, but then packed up. I need to find a warmer hobby - or a warmer climate maybe. Normally I do AVIs, but for this I did a series of 100 TIFFs, not sure why - seemed a good idea at the time. Gain 422 -bit random. Stacked in DSS, didn't process. SW Quattro 10 + ASI290MM. (red filter) Not really very exciting but amazing to think that Ariel is only about 725 miles in diameter and is 1.76 trillion miles away!! Hmmm - Is that really right?
