  1. Absolutely amazing!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!!
  2. Here is my attempt at Saturn throw a X2 Barlow last night. I can see the Cassini Division coming through!! I live in a very light polluted area (inside San Antonio city limits ), and this is from my back yard, so I think if I went out where it was a lot darker, it would prob look much better. Still not the best with Registax, but I will keep trying!
  3. Very good images!! How are the viewing conditions in Northern Cali?
  4. Thanks everyone! @Beamish: I attempted to use a 2X barlow, but the image was far too blurry. It was still early in the evening and just cooling down, so there was a lot of heat rise distortion ( not sure if that is the technical term )going on. Thanks for the link to the tutorial!!
  5. Yes, they were captured last night. The first one was captured just as the sun was setting, so it was still quite bright outside. The second was awhile after sun set, but not all that dark. I knew that I would not be able to stay up too late, and wanted to image Saturn, so I started early with the moon.
  6. Last night was my first attempt at astro imaging. Did two shots of the Moon, posted in the lunar imaging section, and one of Saturn. Any tips/criticisms are welcome!! Equipment: SPC900NC with adapter, but no other modifications Nexstar 8SE Software: SparpCap for capturing Regstax 6 for stacking ( or at least attempting to stack...I need to read a tutorial )
  7. Here are my first attempts at astro imaging. One looks a little over processed. Also shot Saturn, posted in the Planetary section. Any tips/criticisms are welcome!!

    Hola and hello!

    New to SGL and to astronomy in general, so I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Joshua and I live in San Antonio, Tx USA. I have wanted a telescope since I was about 14 ( im 26 ), and decided to go with the Nexstar 8SE for my first scope ( tax return money!! ) So far the only thing that I don't like about the hobby is going to work with only 3 hrs of sleep from stargazing all night!! I have two eye pieces right now: the 25mm EP that came with the scope and a celestron 8mm-24mm zoom. I read a lot of opinions on telescopes on SGL, which helped me decide, so thanks!! I have taken a few pictures of Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon with my iPhone through the 8SE, and they turned out shockingly decent. The hardest part was lining the camera up and not shaking while it took the picture. I uploaded them to my albums. I am a computer programmer, have been doing it for 7 years now, and start college in the summer to get my Physics degree. Not sure what I want to do once I get it, but prob just keep programming.
