  1. Ok getting a bit better now. M51, still picking up an odd vignetting in APP like the flats have been over enthusiastic so had to crop quite small. New camera and new software is always going to produce something weird. Ill keep working on it About 6h total integration with 300s subs binned 1x1, 40x flats (teeshirt on evening sky), 30 darks, 40 flat darks ive got two more nights of clear skys so i can either add more time to this or try a new target
  2. Finally made the move from a DSLR to a OSC and bought my self a Zwo Asi294mc Pro. By some miracle there have been a few clear nights since it arrived so i have managed to get about 4h on M81 and M81. Struggling a bit with colour saturation and i have picked up an odd gradient i cant get rid of yet and a LOT of sky background. i think it might be the streetlight but M81 is quite high up this time of year. I normally use a CLS clip in on the cannon but had to put in a cheep skywatcher light pollution filter here which might also be to blame. Might look at getting a IDAS 60 x 300s subs, 30 Darks, flats and Dark flats. Stacked first in DSS but ive also given Astro pixel process a go using the free licence. I can get a bit more colour out using APP it seems. please, any hints and tips gratefully received
  3. m81/82 tonight first light with new camera (i know! its clear!). but had to do a quick 10 min stack of ATLAS unguided
  4. first go at m63 tonight for me. its a genuine pleasure to be under the start tonight after the week ive had. i was exhausted on friday but tonight i just want to sit and gaze
  5. just packed up after spending the evening gettting a stellarmate to work.....not bad so far but i want to see how it does on an actual immaging run
  6. also, looking at that picture the az bolts are about 4x the size!
  7. ok its about 1.5kg so postage is feasible, so how about £20 inc postage?
  8. Hermes seem to think that postage will be £5 or so, ill weigh it when I get home if you are still interested
  9. Honestly I can't say.....I know they fit an neq6 and they look like the picture but I can't give you a definitive yes. Postage to Spain would be at a cost to you and I would have to check prices but I am happy to look tho
  10. Where abouts are you? It is quite heavy and bulky, its probably worth about £15 I think ***Edit just read your tag, not massively close to Cambridge***
  11. i would kinda like to sell it as a set if its possible
  12. The clearout continues, im getting closer to the back of the cupboard now I upgraded my NEQ6 with the MKII wedge and ive had these bits left over for ages now they are the upgraded heavy duty bolts, seem to be about £50 a set on ebay so i guess im happy taking £25 *****EDIT now sold thanks!*** NEQ6 head (see photo) is surplus to requirements so i guess if you are interested in it make me an offer ******edit £20 with postage***
