  1. Mostly I'd like to apologise for the snoring.REEALLy.......sorry It was a pleasure meeting everyone and look forward to seeing you next year.
  2. Hi everyone, get out your ear plugs I've booked and will be there from Tues/Sun. Two heaters this time and more home brew!! Look forward to seeing you then.
  3. And this is the triangulum Galaxy. All the above shot with un modified nikon D7000 on CG5 mount with an 80ed celestron and dodgy guiding via an Italian stand alone system.
  4. Being a newbe at this and fighting with my kit all the time, I know I'm on a long learning curve, but it's great fun and look forward to practising and improving. I managed to get ok subs up from 30sec to 8mins....some of the time. Below are a couple more from 6dH
  5. Hi everyone, Apologies for the late posting. Having problems on how to upload images, cant seem to upload anything more than 1meg!! Any help? A big thank you to Mark for organising a great event, which I know he will build on. It was great meeting everyone, a fantastic way to get to know people and learn alot.......... Such as.your voice travels a long way whilst cursing junk Italian auto guiders.Apologies for that bad hair moment! Nelson was great fun, a true Astro dog! I look forward to seeing everyone again next year and with a little hlp will stick my humble offerings on this post. Lookk forward to hearing back. Thank you. Mark2
  6. Hi Mark, I was across the way at sgl12, home made wine and 40 year old wiskey. Look forward to seeing you there. Thanks, Mark.
  7. Hi, Hopefully someone can advise me on how I should best go about restoring this scope which I recently purchased. It is a 3" 1000mm Hilkin refractor 1960's I think with box. The optics are in dusty, but great condition. It's missing the nut to fasten the counter weight It has all the eye pieces, but I tried it with a standard adapter with a cheap diagonal and 20mm possel and it is razor sharp and no colour fringing. It has a mount for a 40mm guide scope with pre drilled holes to fit it, but no 40mm guide scope. There is, as can be seen in the pics a 6x30 with mount, but only one drilled hole to take it {which is the front mount hole for the larger finder scope mount. Apart from that it seems to be all there. I've tried looking for info on the web, but there is next to no onfo, but it my be made by Eikow for export. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks Mark. Attached Thumbnails

  9. Hi, and thank you to everyone who helped me at sgl7 nick, Lee and astrognome. I'm very new to this and it was a first outing for the neq6. My kit was all wrong for imaging... a televue f11 102 acro with a williams 66 reducer/flatner and a dodgy LV guide camera with a Nikon D7000 that will not shoot longer than 30secs with the software I have + a bottle of home made wine! I know it's not a good picture, but as a start point in this hobbie I hope it's a step in the right direction. Any criticism is most welcome as it will only help me improve. Thank you. Apologies if I kept anyone up with the snoring.
  10. sorry here's the link for the image which did not load. sgl7

  12. Yes all details correct, thanks. Mark. Do I still have the option of a hog roast? Thanks, Mark.
  13. Thank you for your insightfull replies. Much appreciated. KInd regards, Mark.
  14. Hi, hopefully you guys can help, my question will seem stupid I'm sure as I'm still really new to this hobby. If I was to take one image at 30s at 1600iso would I get the same information if I took three images at 10s? Essentially can I reduce exposure time and increase the number of shots and get the same depth of info when stacked in DSS. I hope you can help. Thanks, Mark.
