  1. Thanks for the help Milosz. I think I with have a look at bit more because I will not image until around the 26th January so I still have some time.
  2. I had a look in CCD calculator and it looked ok but I could be wrong. After seeing some images on SGL and the filters I can use, could I make a Hubble palette of something like the rose nebula?
  3. So could I do luminance 5x120 secs at 1x1 bin, bvr 9x300 secs (3 each) at 2x2 bin? Sorry for the questions but I'm a bit confused.
  4. Hi milosz, What are the BVR filters? I thought these would be like RGB but maybe not. I am new to DSO imaging so still learning about filters and stuff.
  5. Hi, I am going to be using this telescope soon http://www.itelescope.net/telescope-t16 but I need some help of what filters to use. I want to image M31 and I have an hour to get some data. These are the filters I can use, Luminance, R, V, B, Ha, SII, OIII, I, and also how many should I take and for how long. Also, the one hour is of full imaging and does not include focussing, slewing, etc. Any help would be excellent, Jack
  6. Have you tried using a Barlow to increase image size?
  7. I will be happy to vote for some people Just need to find out how to do it though
  8. Wow, what an opportunity. Would be great if someone from here joined up.
  9. I love Hubble palettes so this makes this image even better, superb
  10. I went to Reykjavik in October and although I didn't see the lights, Iceland is an amazing place in itself and makes up for not seeing the lights (I still want to see the lights though)
  11. I live in Birmingham so not the darkest place. On very good nights, from just my window I can see to about 3.5 to 4.0 mag if I'm lucky.
  12. One problem you might have with using a DSLR though is you may not get focus. I have no experience with using a DSLR on this scope as I do planetary but that is what I have read.
  13. Do you have a nosepiece for the webcam? You are best doing planetary and lunar imaging at the moment so if you have a look at my website then you can see some images taken by me with the same telescope as you.
  14. What was the original price of this and also would this be a good increase from a 130M or should I wait a bit longer and save?
  15. I agree with melsky. GoSatWatch for the satellites and GoSkyWatch for stars and that. Also, Sputnik is pretty good for ISS and Iridiums
