  1. Made a short video on perseids last night. Photos and timelapse. Enjoy
  2. The second pass at around 7:48pm looks more promising for me here. Its going into the shadow of the early on though so hard to track. Will keep an eye on the moon during that time
  3. Sadly its too far south to see it here. Looks like anyone at around 54' should see it. Would make a nice picture
  4. Ok thanks for the advice DrRobin. I'll give it a go
  5. Some fantastic views of Jupiter tonight. Used webcam this time to capture Jupiter and manage to capture the shadow of Io as well. Jupiter - 2nd Feb 2013 by .digitalight, on Flickr
  6. Hi, just bought the 9mm super plossl from scopes n skies and very pleased with it after my first viewing through it. I decided to get this as an upgrade to the MA Skywatcher 10mm. Even though it was not the best viewing conditions tonight, slightly cloudy I could see a good improvement in detail when looking at Juipter. It's now my favourite eyepiece. Recommend to anyone who is still using their SW 10mm
  7. Glad you got an hour anyway. There are a few clouds still about but mostly clear now. I've been looking at Jupiter and the moon tonight. Just finished processing the image of Jupiter which is in my other post http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/175495-jupiter-27-jan-2013/
  8. After what started out as a cloudy start to the evening. I was very pleased with the results of imaging Jupiter. I recently purchased a laser collimator, after collimation it made such an improvement to the viewing quality and therefore the imaging. Used a DSLR camera through Skyline 250PX and made up of up 4 stacked images My next attempt is going to be using the webcam more to get better shots but still very please with tonights result.

  9. Thanks for the link. Looking much better now. Clear skies!
  10. Been preparing for a good night of observing Jupiter tonight. Recently got a laser collimator and played around collimating my scope as precise as possible during the day. First time collimating my scope with a laser. BBC Weather report looks good for tonight. Getting setup now and guess what comes floating across the sky big as anything? Oh the life of a UK amateur astronomer
  11. RIP Sir Patrick Moore. You will be missed.
  12. The other night I decided to do some wide angle photos and stargazing. Their is a bit of light pollution which is evident using long exposures but I like to turn the photos into B/W that's looks better to me. Was surprised how many DSO you can see in the second photo. Great fun! Milky Way - Looking South by .digitalight, on Flickr Milky Way - Looking East by .digitalight, on Flickr
  13. For first outing that is pretty amazing. I'm a newby at planetary imagining and tried to get shots of Jupiter but none have come out as clear as yours. Well done
  14. Quick question, What's the best way or easiest way of inserting photos from Flickr into posts on SGL? In the past I have grabbed the flickr jpg URL of the medium (640px) version gone to Insert Image pasted in the URL then highlight the picture and created a hyperlink to go to the photo page on Flickr. I've noticed quite a few posts where people have used flickr photos and have it says "from Flickr" along with the title of the photo in a consistent way. Am I missing something? Do I have to use BBCode? If so which one? Thanks,
  15. Just posted my picture of it too. It was very bright tonight.
  16. Always enjoy watching the ISS going over head. Always gets me that there are people living up there.
  17. Thanks for the tip. Handy app for any astronomer.
  18. It's been a while since I done any astrophotography. Decided to take a picture of full moon through my 10'' Dobsonian via DSLR. There was alot of cloud and just waited out until a small gap in the cloud. The weather has been pretty bad for long time now which is probably why I havn't done much astronomy this year. Enjoy
  19. If you do go down the route of Picasa to manage your photos on your computer. There is a addon which makes for simple uploading to Flickr. picasa2flickr - flickr upload plugin for picasa PS. you need Flickr Uploadr installed as well for it to work.
  20. Great video. Thank you for sharing
  21. Hope you don't mind but I was just doing some deeper comparisons and noticed during the 2 hours between our images that two small craters appear inside large one. Really cool to think that the moon phase is changing that fast.
