  3. Hehe, i wouldn't worry about asking questions - we have all likely asked a few good ones during the learning stages. as for first targets, the best one - if its around at the time - is the moon, close up or full disc its always nice to see (and later on easy to photograph) and any of the larger planets will do as well. Check out freeware stellarium for a good idea where to find things. hth regards Aenima

    Jupiter mono shrp N blur

    This was done using a webcam type video camera, it goes directly into the telescope. It takes a video of the planet and the best frames stacked together to bring out detail. in this case a 3x barlow was used (between the cam and scope) to make the image bigger..

    You wouldn't see this amount of colour or detail without a camera, but the brightest area of the nebula along with the central stars can be viewed through a scope, and as usual the bigger the aperture the better it will pick up the fainter objects.
  6. Thanks QM, it's great to hear the extra '50 in 350D might allow the pc connection that the 300D lacked. I had hoped for focus assist, but not looked into it before now. I have heard also that the 350D has compatibility issues with anything later than winXP.... might be worth reverting to an earlier OS just for that reason. ASTROEQ looks at first glance to be mainly for non-goto users, but still a nice piece of DIY Regards Aenima
  7. Great post, looks like a nice set-up. I managed to come across a 350D recently thnx to a very kind deal from a fellow stargazer - i'm quite pleased with it, it's definitely an upgrade from the 300D.. Im interested in the possibility of using it with the laptop -- the 300D wasn't supported by BYEOS or other astro software , but failing that i'm happy using the remote timer (very useful things aren't they? )... ive had laptop trouble which halted guiding for a while but shouldn't stop me for too long Aenima

    double cluster 2

    From the album: The next step.

    One of my first targets but still trying to get a decent image - clusters are harder than they look to capture due to them being all stars so tracking errors and uncorrected optical problems are very quick to show up in the end result.

    No introduction needed for this amazing nebula, very popular, and lovely to observe.
  10. Sorry only just realised the question was here - that bright star is the first on the left of the 3 in Orion's belt - called Alnitak. thnx for the comments btw :)
