    First light ZWO 1600mmpro

    Thanks Dave . I will try out those settings. Nick
  2. Hi there, Well its been somtime ..infact just over 2years since i last posted a picture . I sadly sold my Morvian 2 years passed and have been without a camera untill now . I bought a ZWO 1600pro with filter wheel and 1.25 filters last week ( aplogise for the rain ) and this is the first outing with it on my Borg To make matters more intresting i also used a new PC for imaging which i thought had all the correct an up to-date software . But it wasnt untill I got SGP up and going and ready to take a shot it imforms me im using an outdated PHD2 !!!! SO not dithering for this image section . I started taking 2mins subs and then moved up to 5min subs in HA .I was unsure how much time i would get but some how dodged most of the clouds for 2.5 hours. This Picture is 50 mins of 2mins and 1hour 40mins of 5 mins . I took lots of different flats 18000 ,24000 and found 30000adu seems to work the best with Darks for this picture. (intrested to know others take on ADU for flats with the 1600) My stars arnt quite round towards the edges and i put this down to my back focus being 58mm which i hope to sort over the next week . I have stretched the image maybe a little too much for the data ,but over all im very happy with the first light of this camera and am very excited at the potential of this camera. Thanks for looking Nick

    7nm or 12nm Ha Filter?

    The lower the better . Its all about narrowing the band of light so 7nm would be better.

    Ive Borged the veil

    Thanks Olly , Its your doing ! i'm sure you have been told many times but its from your inspiring work that i love a little bit of widefield . I have seen many combos of different cameras and telescopes with higher PP and delivered great shots . That is what made me take a slight gamble with it . Im glad i did ,i love widefield !!! Nick

    Thanks John, Olly, Paul for your kind comments . Yes i have Paul but as you can see i have done i have mashed the picture toghter so dbe has done a good job . With my 1.25 filters and a fast sysem i get quite a dip in light at the edges so it does look like i need to nail the flats with the combo i have . Thanks Nick

    Ive Borged the veil

    This is first light (over two night ) with my new Borg 77 with reducer making it a speedy f4.3 . I have had this scope over a week but the connections to the back end to camera is quite frankly mind boggining and not alot of info on the internet made it even more intresting . But ive got there and i will do a right up on how to connect a ccd too borg for reference for people in the future . This is my attempt at the veil both east and west . Which is one of the reasons why i bought the borg just so i can fit a nice bit of sky FoV 3.58 in one shot ,over doing mosaics in Uk's fickle skys ! 3.37 per Pixel Configured as HOO . 4hrs in HA 900's 4hrs in O111 600's No Flats bias or darks ...need to sort out Flats as it needs it .
