  1. Fantastic Barry. Your processing skills are something to aspire to
  2. Thanks, nice of you to say that! Yes, I am pleased with it but there is plenty of room for improvement!
  3. Yes, it works very well. So much so I have got one exactly the same to make up a dual rig
  4. Thanks again for the kind comments all
  5. A great result, full moon or not! The 3nm filter certainly helps with the Moon and general rubbish sky conditions.
  6. BTW, Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated
  7. Great job, just need to nail the focus!
  8. Great job! Hate to say it though, probably slightly out of focus??
  9. Superb. Lots of great detail!
  10. Hi all I am amazed that I even managed to get this much done this year! About five hours Ha and an hour each of RGB. Conditions bad to terrible!! ASI 1600mm; Esprit 80 Cheers Nick
  11. Nice one Steve. I would be inclined to suppress the green, but it is a really nice photo with some excellent detail anyway Cheers Nick
  12. HI all This is two hours integration with the Baader f/2 narrowband filter on the Hyperstar C9.25. I was not satisfied with the quality, so I have now moved on to a refractor based rig. Not sure if it was a good move or not... Cheers Nick
  13. And also Rodd, it is possible (in fact probable) we are not even looking at the same thing! On one of my monitors this looks great (the correctly calibrated LCD from work), on the other it looks a bit overexposed with a bit of a gradient in the bottom left. In fact, your processed versions look a lot better on this (other) monitor. The only way to know for sure would be to print the picture out...
