  1. Incredible imaging! Truly inspirational. 2 months very well spent. Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk
  2. Excellent image, especially with the luminance added. Looks like you'll have a lot of success with the new camera. Sent from my HTC One_M8 using Tapatalk
  3. I use Backyard EOS for focusing, framing and capturing and I can highly recommend it. It's very intuitive to set up and has many useful features, especially to aid focusing. Clearly APT has a lot of satisfied customers too, so I'd guess you can't go wrong with either application. Craig Sent from Android Mobile.
  4. I can only repeat what everybody else has said. Simply stunning. Sent from Android Mobile.
  5. Lovely image. Well done! The Sombrero is my favourite galaxy but is probably a bit too small for my current setup.
  6. Great image. Lots of detail and lovely colours. Sent from Android Mobile.
  7. Well done on capturing these galaxies for the first time. Nicely framed too. Gradient Xterminator is a paid-for plugin but I think you can have a free 30 (ish) day trial to try it out. It works a treat for light polluted skies. Sent from Android Mobile.

  9. Hi everyone, I live in Chippenham, Wiltshire. I've been observing the night sky from my back garden for many years. I first got the bug as a young lad when my brother and I watched an incredible meteor shower from our parent's back garden. Regrettably, I do not remember which one it was. Since then I've been a casual observer using my trusty Meade LX-10 which has served me very well indeed. More recently, I decided to take the plunge into astrophotography and so I've purchased a Teleskop Service 80/480 APO Triplet and HEQ5 Pro mount. I use a Canon 1000D which I'm considering modifying. I've got loads to learn and my early attempts are not the best but I'm really enjoying learning. Just wish for a few more clear nights (don't we all). SGL seems like a fantastic forum with freindly members offering a wealth of advice and so I'm really looking forward to being part of the community. I've been browsing the site for ages, so I thought it was about time I said hello.
