  1. Thanks for the comments, did you see the animation?, as I just noticed for some reason it only appears as a download link under the second image?
  2. A little after the event, but here are my attempts at capturing the Transit Mercury Transit 2016.mpeg
  3. Glad you posted, its a good image considering the poor seeing conditions you had.
  4. The second set of images are very good, perhaps the extra time for the equipment temperature to stabilise and improved seeing both played a part. I agree with Freddie on the length of capture for the reason he gives.
  5. A superb set of images Freddy, colour balance and levels all look good on my pc.
  6. Nice images Mark, amazing how Registax can create a decent image from captures taken when the seeing is not that good.
  7. Thanks for the animation instructions Dror, I did one in Gimp last week, but your procedure seems a better way to do it than the way I went about it.
  8. Image from 15th showing Jupiter and the Galilean satellites, taken with 12" LX200 and DBK41 Imaging source camera.
  9. Absolutely incredible, that filament is awesome.
  10. Thanks for all the comments, the seeing was poor when I started and I was not going to do any imaging but just watch the transit. I changed my mind and deciced to take images approx every 15 mins and hope for the best, glad I stuck at it.
  11. Took a sequence of images for the transit of Io and it's shadow on the 5/6 Nov, the seeing was quite variable over the time of the event, I have included three of the best images and an animation of the entire transit. Both Io and its shadaw were seen to transit across the great red spot. Taken with 12" Meade LX200 with 2X barlow and Imaging source DMK21 colour camera.
  12. Thank you all for the welcome. Your right Jamie, but I'm here now. Hope to post some images in the near future.
  13. I have followed the Stargazer lounge activity for some time as a non-member and thought it was now time to join. I have been interested in astronomy for over 4 decades, currently the equipment I use is an observatory mounted 12" Meade LX200 classic with Imaging Source DMK21 camera. Brian
