  1. That's what I was aiming to do. I also tried to make the stars much smaller as their were too many. The shot was taken with a half moon so some gradient is present when trying to stretch too much.
  2. Canon 5D MKIII attached to an Orion ED 80 refractor. 16 x 5min frames at iso 800.

    NGC 6960

    Fantastic first light. The sharpness stands out.
  4. Moon with Canon 5D MkIII and 10" Quattro
  5. Left home at 22:00 last night on foot and arrived at 06:00. I had to gain quite a bit of altitude in order to have a good visual of the comet.
  6. I also have the 10" Quattro. The stock focuser is not up to the task of Astrophotography by a long shott. I also updated it immediatly to a moonlight and stepper motor. I would advise you to get the carbon fibre version as the steel version is not great when loaded fully for Astrophotography. I had a carbon tube made for mine.
  7. After taking some images of a Comet last night I decided to slew to M101 and let the scope pay for its keep for the rest of the evening. 10 x 600s in ,R,G and B 18 x 600s in L Scope: Sywatcher Quattro 10" Mount: Mesu 200 Camera: Atik 383L Filters: Baader I will try and acquire some more data this evening.
  8. Asi 120mm hooked up to my homemade 16 inch dob. This is not in perfect focus but I was playing around with my Dob that I only use for visual. I am quite pleased with this brief attempt.
  9. I use Pixinsight to add Ha to the red channel of my rgb image.
  10. Location: Italian Alps 10x 300 sec subs in Ha,L,R,G,B Telescope: 10" F3.9 Newtonian Camera: Atik 383L Mount: Mesu 200 Filters: Baader Ha,L,R,G,B. I used "Pixmath" in Pixinsight to add Ha to the red channel
  11. Thanks for the input. I will double clean and check today. I would have thought that my flats would have removed them though.
