  1. Hopefully this is an improvement on last year's image, this should have been 4 hrs or so, but what with wind and cloud (it was supposed to be clear) it ended up at 75 mins of 60's, 60's due to wind and cloud.

  9. Yes Reggie, I thought Syrtis Major was very prominent this year.The last time I managed to image this feature was back in 2014.You really notice the passing of time when you have astronomy for a hobby. Stay safe George

  10. Great, George! I noticed the polar cap was smaller, too. But Syrtis Major more than made up for it

  15. Great image. Funny I’ve just literally tried using TDNAI too and it does work surprisingly well, I tried it on one of clavius too.

  19. I did see the beautiful conjunction of the moon, Saturn and Jupiter. I got a picture that I haven't uploaded yet. Mars, though, has been getting most of my attention these past few months, lol. Looking forward to "seeing" more of your images, George. All the best, Reggie

  21. The link is not to a 2" to 1.25" but to a T-2 mount camera body (no lens) / t ring / t mount - inserted into the telescope focuser as you may not be using the diagonal you may need a 2" long extension tube to use instead of it Before buying anything I would read up more on using a camera with your Evo 90mm

  24. 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

  26. 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!

  27. 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.

  28. 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 ??

  30. 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.

  32. 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

  33. 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

  34. 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.

  37. There are some critics of the 294 camera but I love mine and your image just goes to show what can be done with it.

  41. I think this one and the Triffid Nebula are my favourite shots from 5 years of astrophotography M31 is quite a tricky one to get right and it took a lot of effort to finally capture the data I needed to draw out all the detail. Not just that but the learning curve required to get the processing methods was a good 3 years work so don't be disappointed if you try and it just comes out all wrong keep on going and you will get it right remember, no pain no gain in this game.
