  2. Hi Barry, The problem is that DSO's are very very dim, always difficult, but your yes need to be really dark adapted and you need to look at the object for a good few mins before it starts to emerge
  3. Mike, thank you so much for this information, I really appreciate it, I would love to ask you a few questions about the shutter as mine gets stuck quite frequently. And thank you so much for the instructions, will have a read through the tonight. Thanks again Craig

  13. Hi all, not been around for awhile or even been out for ages, a combination for bad weather and work commitments. Went out last night\this morning 06/09/15 Taken using my Canon EOS500, at ISO1600 and my CPC800 Telescope. Total of 35min Exposure. Comprised of 22 images, 20 @120 seconds and 2 @200 seconds
  14. So not your normal homemade obsy, but here's my birthday cake my amazing girlfriend made me
  15. fantastic, has a really natural look to it
  16. Thanks Chris So should I use the remove the IR cut \ L filter from the train competently?
  17. Hi all I didn't want to high-jack the other thread re: IR Pass filter. I recently bought the Astronomik ProPlanet 742 IR-pass filter expecting to achieve better results when imaging. I went out for the first time with it last night and tried using it in different positions in the optical chain. 1) replaced the L fitler for the IR pass filter 2) fitted it into position 4 of the filter wheel without the L filter in place 3) same as above with the L filter in place. I targeted Venus first, being nice and bright, I had to increase the gain up to 100% and the exposure up to the point that I was capturing at around 14 / 20fps. Introducing the colour filters just made the situation worse. When turning to Jupiter it was impossible to image Equipment used: CPC800 ZWO ASI120MM LRGB Filters + Wheel Televue 2x Powermate Any advice appreciated Thanks Craig
  18. Nice one guys, wont being trying that one in a hurry then Thanks all for the input. Craig
  19. Just a random thought, Obviously a DSLR images in full colour but would there be any benefit of using a LRGB filter set while imaging? Ta Craig
  20. Love the top pic, very gothic
  21. Fantastic shot, especially for you first effort and from an ipod. Well done
