  1. Running Man Nebula 10 frames @ 20 sec ED80, Atik 2hs and 0.5 Reducer Blustery but clear night, could only manage short subs as the wind was causing problems.. Saying that it's my best running man to date.. Martin..

    I missed this object last time the old star hopping let me down, so i thought i would have another go just to see if i could find it although Rog will do me about HA Filters lol sorry Rog i know your right old mate will get one soon You can just make out the cone centre just lol... Shame about the blob on the ccd had that on all my shots last night Anyway here it is Martin
  17. Good attempt Rog, difficult conditions although i had the best night for ages last night just i had the focus slightly off and should have used 2X Barlow and not 3 X, the seeing was perfect saturn was so still i had to keep checking the computer hadn't crashed Martin..
  18. My First Saturn since may last year.. Helios 8ins F5 Reflector, atik 1-c, neodymium filter, ir block filter and 3 X Barlow There's two images taken with slightly different settings although i think the focus was just a bit out.. Still I'm happy with result Martin
  19. Horse Head done with a skywatcher 102 s/t, atk2hs neodymium filter and ir block filter. Excellent night very clear as this image shows lots more detail compared to one i did a few nights ago... Had to crop the image as there was a dark blemish on the lower part of the shot Still no HA Filter Used Martin.. Spent a little more time with photoshop hope you like it
