    Mars With a 1-Meter Scope

    Hi Charles, Fabulous images btw. It certainly proves beyond doubt that aperture counts, for planetary. If you don't mind me asking. What sort of scope time did you rack up for those images. Steve

    Great design and build. My obsy was the best investment I made for astro-photography. Steve
  6. My only image of Mercury was taken in Ibiza in 2017 with a conjunction with Mars. Steve

    hello

    Hi Richard and a very warm welcome to the Lounge Steve
  9. That scope is certainly a beast. I would consider balance weights on the top of the tube. Your current set-up is creating a lot of strain on your focuser. Steve
  10. Great images for such short exposures on a phone and considering the conditions. However, the swings hanging off the focuser will not help with the tracking Steve

    target in sgpro

    Like any new software, there's a learning curve. Once you start a sequence it goes through the centring (platesolve) proceedure, starts phd2, autofocus routine and then starts the imaging session when PHD2 has settled to your px parameters. It should not park the mount unless you pause then abort the sequence and finally "ticking" the dismiss the session. Regarding platesolving. You must have your pixel scale accurately set for your particular scope and camera. Steve

    Tell us your sky quality

    Mine's not too good either. A gigantic Aldi warehouse is being constructed 2 miles away. Don't know hat effect this will have on my imaging exploits. Steve
