  1. Got my 1st astro camera last week, a Zwo Asi 533MC Pro OSC and took it out for 1st light on Saturday night. I went to a (dark site, nothing's dark at the minute) Can't get this from my home and the dark site has a nice flat horizon. Anyway this is just 6 x 5 minute subs cooled to - 10c and darks to match. No flats. Love this camera.
  2. I'm on the £9.98 subscription but just started using Astro Pixel Processor to stack by images and it also has decent processing tools so I might ditch PS and use Gimp for finishing off. Will purchase Pixinsight one day.
  3. Paid for and downloaded Annie's Astro Actions last night and had a quick process of my Rosette Nebula, the star reduction tool definitely works! Thanks.
  4. Thank you, I'll have a look at Annie's Astro Actions
  5. Hi, Has anyone got any good guides or plug-ins for reducing the number of stars in a star field using PS? I imaged the Rosette Nebula the other night but find the number of stars distracting from the Nebula. Thanks.
  6. I am selling my Polemaster and Skywatcher HEQ5 Adapter. I use a Asi Air now which has a built Polar Alignment feature so the Polemaster is now redundant. Purchased in August of last year in great condition. Looking for around £220 ono, that includes P&P. Bank Transfer preferred but will accept PayPal. ******* Now Sold ********
  7. Them drawings make no sense to me. So if the Canon t mount is 11 mm, should the Flattener be set to 12.9mm or 13.9mm with the filter in?
  8. Hi yes, I have a Svbony CLS filter in. So adjust to 13.9mm?
  9. I have a William Optics Z61 with the Flat 61A adjustable Flattener. I took an image of the Horsehead Nebula and noticed there was a bit of coma in the corners. I have it set to 12.9mm as instructed on the WO website. I am using a Canon 6d with it. Would the 12.9mm be correct or will it be more or less?
  10. Enjoyed the show today. Big thanks to Rob @FLOfor belt modding my HEQ5 Pro. Only money I spent today was a tea for my dad and some chips for me. Some fantastic kit on display.
  11. I was being cheeky and seeing if there was a discount on the kit as well as free fitting I brought my HEQ5 Pro off you about a month ago.
  12. Tempted with this. Will there be a discount on the Rowan kit?
  13. Got these today. 50 velcro cable ties for a bit of cable management, a micro USB for my Canon 6d and a 2.1mm right angle extension cable for my HEQ5 Pro. Can't understand why Skywatcher don't make this connection standard instead of the straight plug so the weight of the PSU is pulling on the plug
  14. 10m 4-port USB Hub and a Lynx Astro EQDIR cable so I can image with my HEQ5 Pro in the house with my laptop. Beats sitting outside freezing!
