    Hi from a newbie

    Hi and a very warm welcome to the Lounge. Also, very nice images and congratulations on your first steps into astro photography Steve
  4. That's exactly what I used to do when I first ventured into astro photography.Ii used to set-up and tear down every session. So on cloudy days and nights I used run dummy imaging sessions to fine tune my methods so I could confidently set-up in the dark and be imaging sooner. Steve

    Hi all you stargazers

    Hi and a very warm welcome to the Lounge. https://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/ is a good start for second hand equipment. Although getting this book:- https://www.firstlightoptics.com/books/making-every-photon-count-steve-richards.html will help enormously into what's needed for AP. Steve
  7. You definitely need to fully calibrate your subs prior to any sort of processing. You didn't expand on how, what software and process you used to calibrate your images. regards imaging last night, well there was so much moisture in the air and combined with a bright blobby, it was very challenging.

    Wow, details amazing Steve and if the clear night skies keep diminishing even I may stray onto the "hot" side Steve

    Rosette Ha(R)GB

    That's a cracking image. Combining the Ha & red has really brought out the contrast & detail. Steve
  10. Great image Göran. Nice rich deep colours, without affecting the star colours and nicely processed. Steve

    Luna 16-1-2019 IR642

    Really great shot Steve. I usually curse the big glowing thing in the sky as I'm after imaging the squiggly & whirly things in the sky Steve

    1st Moon shot in years

    Great shot Francis and great to see ingenuity when most would give up as a bad job and not image at all. Steve

    Matter where LP filter is in train ?

    My LP filter is housed within my focuser unit so before my broadband & NB filters. Not had any issues yet. The plus point of adding the LP filter inside the focuser, is that it doesn't use any of the precious back focus distance. Steve
  20. Cricky that is tiny. My Altair Astro 80 Triplet looks like a Mother Ship compared to the Exp Sci. Steve

    Small Mars, 9 Jan

    Nice images with some fine detail. I am woefully short on planetary imaging and will make a serious attempt this year. Steve
