  1. What a lovely little group, I'll have to give them a go if the clouds ever go away :/ Smashing image.
  2. I use spiral cable wrap http://www.maplin.co.uk/productsearch?criteria=spiral
  3. Now on the BBC - well done http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-23779447
  4. I was the same as Gib007 - once I'd tried DBE I bought it and don't regret it one bit. The Batch Pre-processing for registration/calibration is great to use too.
  5. Ran it through astrometry.net to get the sky location in case it helps
  6. I use http://www.maplin.co.uk/13.8v-regulated-mains-power-units-231 and http://www.maplin.co.uk/4-way-cigarette-socket-adaptor-42895 to power mount, dew band, filter wheel and camera.
  7. No probs Olly, let us know if you want more help
  8. I love being out in the garden at night, I live on the outskirts of Halesowen and it quiet in the daytime and dead quiet at night. I have been visited by foxes, hedgehogs, neighbours cats, my cats, owls and bats (we used to get a badger come around to eat but the neighbours blocked his access :/ ) and I love it all. I don't bother listening to music as I can remember huge amounts and play it back in my head - including the whole of The Snow Goose by Camel which I recommend if you haven't heard it, try listening to it and reading the short book by Paul Galico that inspired it.
  9. It's probably serial port drivers you need. When you have the cable plugged in, goto Start-> computer (right click - manage) to get the management up, go to Device Mangement and look for the Serial or com port entry (doing this from memory...) if the drivers are loaded you should see a Serial port with a COM number, if they are not it *may* have a CHxxx where xx is a number... if that shows up then that is the serial driver type needed. Let us know what it says and we'll take it from there. What OS is it BTW?
  10. Nebulosity will let you run multiple instances too - try the demo version.
  11. Gina, on the 1100d, is the audible noise when you take an image actually the shutter mechanism or is it electronically generated?
  12. Bonjour et bienvenue à SGL
  13. I've run it through DBE in Pixinsight to remove the gradient...
  14. I bought one a week ago and found this tutorial invaluable http://www.propermot...ate/Chesire.htm
  15. Globular clusters are a good easy first target, nice and bright and always pleasing to see.
