  1. no you need a machine that can bend space sufficiently enough between you and M57 so that the apparent distance is negligible, then you wont even have to move, you can just bring M57 right to you.
  2. Not possible. Even with antimatter.
  3. yes, unless you cryogenically froze yourself.
  4. nice, do you think getting a powermate is worthwhile?
  5. no. you would die of old age before you got anywhere near.
  6. Thanks for the advice everyone! I have a ccd webcam and im going out tonight to try it out if the sky stays clear, will post the results if I do!
  7. I use a DSLR but people often say a CCD is better for imaging planets, why?
  8. Thanks! Do you think i would get better results with a CCD?
  9. Hey, this is my first attempt at imaging saturn, viewing conditions weren't perfect but image turned out okay! Any tips? Taken with Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT and canon 550d. Image is made using a movie stacked in Registax 5.1
  10. Deciding whether or not it is worth getting one and if so which one is the best... Any ideas?
  11. Wow awesome! How long did u spend editing them?
  12. Okay well this picture is made of i think 3 10 second exposures with my canon 550d and Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope with standard go-to tripod... the problem is many of my pictures have star trails, even if i do a really good set-up... i think it might be the tripod? Should i invest in a better one and if so which one? Also any good tips on keeping light pollution out of my photos?
  13. hey thanks for all of your advise, i will try some of this out next clear night, but a big problem for me seems to be wind, with longer exposures all it takes is a small gust of wind and it ruins the photo, and ideas how to stop this??
