  1. Took these last night. 22 x 25 secs through a standard Canon zoom lens at about 200mm. Definitely fading quickly but worth a shot still. It may be an artifact but there appears to be some detail in the nucleus. I've tried to process to bring it out but it may be some quirk of the stacking etc. I've seen another thread where this has been mentioned but cant' find it. Anyone else seen this?
  2. Still playing around with data from two nights back. Prefer the colours on this one and more of the Ion tail. What are we all going to do when this one fades ????
  3. Thanks. If I get another chance I want to try through a scope and use an LP filter. Unfortunately the comet is in the most light polluted part of the sky from my garden but isn't that "Spodes Law" or something according to Mr Moore. !
  4. Cleared last night but Neowise is low down. The sky was a bit murky but pleased to get the second tail (just). As I set up in the garden the ISS went over. It went over again before I finished. They had been around the earth while I stood in the garden !! Taken with standard canon 55-250 at 200mm. 20 x 20 sec exposures at 1600 ISO on a star adventurer.
  5. Thanks for the kind comments. Fingers crossed we still get good views in darker skies later this month
  6. Forecast changed during the evening and clear enough to see the comet after sunset. A bit low down in the murk and the sky not very dark. Managed a few subs at 8 seconds through an ED72 with Canon 1200D . I'll have a go at gradients and LP later, you never know, maybe more detail in there somewhere !, but pleased to get a first shot for me in the evening.
  7. Yes. Fair comment. Would like to try with a better quality lens I guess. Will try the lower ISO and see what happens
  8. Hope this one lasts. Looking forward to getting a scope on it. 10 pics manually stacked . Canon 1200D with 55-250 zoom lens. 8 sec exposures
  9. Last night at 02:00 Canon 1200D and standard 55-250 lens. Lets hope we have many weeks of this
  10. An experiment really to see what a Canon Powershot 530 would do. It comes with a 50 x optical zoom. This is a single shot taken last night. It's not a telescope but I'm amazed how the technology has come on in recent years.
  11. That’s a fine job with the 120 ED. They are often overlooked for lunar and planetary but do a really good job. Nicely processed.
  12. Thanks Richard. I enjoy taking this type of shot. Seems more real than through the scope if that makes sense
  13. Taken a few weeks back but just got around to processing. The camera was a canon 1200D with standard 55 - 250 mm canon lens at about 135mm. If you can't find it, Mercury is right in the middle about 20 % of the way down from the top edge. I'm always pleased to see Mercury. I think this is about the fourth time in 50 years !!
  14. Still wading through video files. Different exposure here seems to have captured more detail on the crater ramparts and the area to the North of Theophilus. I never seem to process following the same routine or is it just me? Trouble is I usually forget between sessions !
