    That is the plan But it one says too much it is never going to stop raining. Indeed, last night was special. I did get a good clear views of Jupiter but with the 80mm it is small. Thanks for watching!

    Moon 22 June 2018

    The moon last night . Taken using my SWED80mm+ASI1600, 500 frames, processed in PIPP and AS!3. Probably the last time I take pictures from this location as we are moving.
  3. Thanks for replying I'm curious because the plastic filter box has the numbers and it looks like it was put there at factory.
  4. Hi, Can someone please help me with understanding what is meant by a UHC filter with a -1 or a -3? Such as with https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F382412136463 Or https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F162948992611 Thanks beforehand.

  5. Markarian's Chain - wrong orientation and missing some bits.... Altair SWED80 + 0.8 Planostar reducer/flattner; Nikon D7200 @ISO 1600 processed with DDS 64 bits, Pixinsight and PS. Thanks for watching. Comments are welcome! R:)

  8. Righto. Obvious now. It's my bad flats. Thanks guys!
  9. I'm a novice but hjave taken to image at any opportunity I get. I'm getting this round halo when imaging for 50 s at ISO 1600 using a D7200 and SWED80 w/ Altair plano reducer/flattner. Please see the image below. Can anyone please comment?
  10. Any ideas what to do with an unused AR 1562S? It's big and heavy and I'm trying to decide to sell it or not. After fitting an Baader semi APO filter and motor focuser it performs quite well but it's quite cumbersome to use for VA. Perhaps it's good enough for some AP? What uses would you recommend for this scope?
  11. Many thanks for a likes and comments ! The SW ED80 is my favourite scope at the moment. I need to get my C11 EDGE HD + 0.7 FR out on the mount soon to try at f/9. Tempted to try on this target first and then move on to M101?
  12. This widefield view of M51a and M51b was taken with an SWED80 + 0.7 Field flatener using a stock D7200 at ISO 1600. You need to zoom in to see some of the fine details captured within the galaxies. I used to 50 sec subs 20Lx15Dx10B. Processed with PI and a little PS. Thanks for watching!
  13. This is my first ever M51. 50s subs 20Lx15Dx10B (still not flats). Taken with a Nikon D7200 at ISO 1600 on a SWED80+0.8FR. Processed with PI and a little PS. I quite pleased with the results and wanted to share although I know it can be better :-) Thanks for watching!

    Rosette Nebula

    Rosette Nebula taken with SWED80+FR0.8, using D7200 at ISO 1600. Unguided 50 sec subs 24Lx28Dx20B. Processed with Pi and PS.

    M42 another effort but not in RAW

    I think this is the optolong that has come loose! I fixed this issue by bending the little tabs in the lower part of the filter so as to make sure filter clips in place.
