    M81 LRGB

    Great capture Steve. Unfortunately Mr B has washed out some of the colour, especially the blue channel. But, imaging is imaging and I tend to use Ha during the moon phases. Steve
  2. This was my project layout board. Patent Pending Steve
  3. If you need information on motorising your dome, I would start here:- http://www.dppobservatory.net/DomeAutomation/DomeDriver.php This project uses the Velleman K8055N project board. Details here - https://www.velleman.eu/products/view/?id=404880 Steve
  4. Yes T10 belt 16mm wide and the sprocket 40 tooth. I purchased a second hand 12v car wiper motor with a mounting configuration that suited my Dome. But I had to add a motor controller to reduce the motor speed. You need to slow the motor down, so that the Dome completes a full rotation in around 90 seconds. Steve

    Software upgrade

    I've used SGPro for around 3 years after migrating from MaximDL v5xx and could not justify paying the increase to v6. SGPro fit the bill as I'm observatory based, and, with any software that goes a long way to automating your imaging sequences, there is a learning curve. You can find lots of information youtube and astro foums, including Main Sequence (SGPro) about setting up your particular equipment. Once set correctly it runs a dream. Steve

    Great image Steve. The subtle colours gives it a surreal 3D effect. Steve
