  1. Bonjour or Bonsoir

    Hi Vianney and a warm welcome to the Lounge Steve
  2. Hiya from Brighton, UK

    Hi Russ and a very warm welcome to the Lounge Steve
  3. PHD 2 GUIDING PROBLEMS

    What are you imaging Rob?
  4. PHD 2 GUIDING PROBLEMS

    Ayup Rob, I assume you have set up PHD2 correctly and used the guide assistant. Have you balanced "east heavy" I can see you are guiding at 1.5 sec which I think is too short. I guide at 5 sec which negates chasing the seeing. I chucked my guide scope in favour of OAG. Less weight and removes the chances of deflection which can cause oval stars. I can now guide in excess of 30 mins. Steve
  5. IC 405 HARGB

    Hi All, IC 405 - 20 x 10 mins RGB, 10 x 20 min Ha. I'd like to remove stars to allow the nebulosity through. Try as I might I am struggling to do this without detriment to the image. Any help appreciated. Steve

    Juast another question. If you have purchased SGPro recently, over the last month or so, I have read in the SGPro threads that you should get a free upgrade to V3. Steve
  11. Last night saga. SGP to PHD to MaximDL

    I use SGPro and once set up correctly it is really good. I know you have PHD2 to contend with, but I suppose you have a similar dilemma with MaximDL and Focusmax. The good news is PHD2 is free. If you need any pointers on both SGPro or MaximDL. Fire away. Steve
  12. Last night saga. SGP to PHD to MaximDL

    I know that several members have asked SGPro on configuring their software to enable dual scope imaging. I was hoping it would be an important facet of their version 3.0 upgrade. Sadly not. Steve

    Sorry to hijack this thread Souls33k3r. Dave, I had the same issue as you. Eventually I decided I would have the main scope managed and guided by SGPro and the second scope managed by MaximDL. Does the job fine. Steve
  14. NGC2244 Rosette HaRGB

    Hi Meygray3833, I blend the Ha with the red channel using pixelmath in Pixinsight. I don't think this is the issue. The issue is with my understanding of the converting my image to the web and getting the colour balance fine tuned. It's a frustrating addiction hobby sometimes Steve
  15. NGC2244 Rosette HaRGB

    That's a great rendition of my image laser_jock99. Yes I agree monitors do cause a concern when posting on the web, especially on a new monitor. I tend to set my black point at 27, which supposedly gives an un-clipped neutral background. Steve
