  2. From the album: Imaging Challenge #17 - Through the Eyepiece

    I just tried to see the moving of this object. I made 20 frames with my Huawei P10 smartphone, with the monochrome camera. My star tracking is not so sharp, I have alt-az mount, I used only 10 sec expositions at ISO 1600. The shots was taken in every 10-12 minutes in this time intervall: 00:16-03:53am 2018. 08.16. Celestron Nexstar 8 SE, 25mm plössl eyepiece (magnification 80x). Of course I used a good adapter too. Frames has added with Gif maker pro mobile application.

  4. From the album: Imaging Challenge #15 - The Milky Way - Now Closed

    A 25 second exposure from a time-lapse taken over the cloud filled Caldera de Taburiente in La Palma in the Canary Islands. Mars is the red object to the left of the Milky Way. Saturn is in there too but is lost amongst the milky way. The bright lights hidden under the clouds are from the towns of Los Llanos and Tazacorte only about 7-8 miles away as the crow flies but about 90 minutes away by car! 25 sec at f/1.8, 14mm Sigma lens, ISO 3200, Canon 6D. The scene was illuminated by a crescent moon beyond the right of the image.

    I was surprised by how intense the airglow was on this night at Yosemite. This was my first very dark sky I've seen, so it was incredible to see the milky way in all its glory. This is a five panel mosaic captured in Yosemite national park California on 7-7-18. Each panel is 30", ISO 5000, 11mm f2.8. Canon 7d MKII, Tokina ATX 116. Stitched and processed in Photoshop and lightroom.

  14. From the album: DSLR imaging

    From Burrough Hill in Leicestershire, June 2013. Canon 550D with a Tair 3S 300mm lens at f/4.5 mounted on a Skywatcher EG3 Pro Synscan. This is a combination of 20 frames, 2 mins each. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker software. The lens is from an old Russian "Fotosniper" kit, and it has fantastic optical properties; very sharp even wide open. It has M42 mount so an adaptor is needed to mount it to the Canon.

  16. From the album: Planetary work

    This is the final animation made from 60 individual stacked images each made from 2 minutes of data taken duing the night of 13/14 March. The gap in the sequence was caused when my camera battery died. Recharging it took about 30 minutes. This took a lot of effort to process each image but it was well worth it. Strange to be converting the original video to a single frame, only to combine those frames to make a video... Scope: SW Skymax 150 F/D = 12 plus a 2x Televue Barlow giving an effective F/D ~ 24, I also used a Baader fringe killer. Camera: Canon 550D, 640X480 movie crop mode,

  18. From the album: Lunar

    Arzachel, Alphonsus and Ptolemaeus It feels like I have been back to basics this week with imaging, exploring sharpening options. I think I will process a few more lunar shots to help get a new sharpening process going. This was sharpened using Astra Image. --- 01/01/2016 Celestron Edge 8, ZWO ASI174

    Having messed about with one of my blurry images of Mars for most of the afternoon, I may have captured the clouds over Olympus Mons or otherwise I've managed to organize 'noise' into a clump.

  21. From the album: Deep Sky III

    I decided to try to maximize detail by collecting a large quantity of Luminescence data and then applying strong deconvolution to the areas of high signal to noise. I also decided to try out Mure denoise, a Pixinsight routine that reduces camera noise. The final result is an LRGB and represents just over 17 hours integration time. I hadn't noticed before the rather strangely shaped fuzzies in the backgroud - have a look at the annotated version for IC4278 and the triangular shaped galaxy PC2292105.

    I just tried to take some pictures about the Perseids, but I captured only a plane and milky way with some clouds. This gif made from 18 frames, taken with Huawei P10 smartphone, monochrome camera was used. ISO 1000, 30sec exposition each. Hirschegg im Kleinwalsertal, Austria.

  26. From the album: The next step.

    I wanted to try again on this for a while now, a gap in the clouds recently gave me the chance although it was literally twenty minutes: 19 x 60sec subs with calibration frames taken indoors. Quite surprised with the image for such a short exposure time.

  29. From the album: Mars

    Night of the 9th October 2020. A clear night but unfortunately the Jet stream conspired to make images wobble like jelly on a plate! A stack of 9mins of RAW video clips. 127mm Meade Apo Refractor with 3x Barlow and QHY5-11 colour planetary camera. The best of a poor set of clips.

    After months and months of trying to improve guiding I have nailed it. The magic for me was putting an I.R. filter in the guide scope. This improved focusing beyond my dreams and hey presto 0.5 total error. Never got close to this figure ever.

    This image of the milky way over the Mountain of the Sun Zion National Park, lefthand side, is a single 30 second exposure. The red sedimentary rock formations really add to the image.

    A small bunch of dead trees i found on a beach lined up fantastic for an early season mikyway shot. I love the fact this was shot in Wales but feels like it could have been shot in Namibia

  37. Never had much luck with this target, however last night (11/09/2016) the conditions were quite good what with the moon setting around midnight, relatively clear skies and M31's position in the sky. I managed to get 8x600s subs before the clouds rolled in - considering the relatively short integration time I'm quite pleased with the result and plan to grab more data as and when possible. Shot under dark skies from Surprise View Car Park in Derbyshire with QHY8L, SWED80, HEQ5, Orion SSAG. Processed in PI and PS. Thanks for looking! Rich
