  1. Is any one hoping to catch a peek of the chinese sapce station falling to earth these coming couple days? ive only read bits and pieces in the news paper which is not the best source of info lol, so i thought id come here to the pro's lol
  2. have not laughed this hard in a very long time, thank you loooool
  3. HUH!!!??? am i in the right place??? this is well different....liking it tho

  4. Thanks buddy, I could not be happier with how the Test run went tbh, and the setup time is what's Got me hooked to this wide field imaging malarkey Lol, 1000% will be doing more wide field, hoping to get A lot of hours in to do some serious stacking and Processing, I was surprised at how little noise this Image has, it was shot at iso 200 tho, hardly Needed any NR you going to dust the cob webs Off your star adventure then and join me in some Lovely wide field imaging
  5. finally got PI to solve, dont know what i done different but it worked this time... happy i got M31 & M33 by Martin Young, on Flickr
  6. Thanks all does feel good i admit having some new data to play about with, im just trying to get PI to annotate the image for me, but the image solver is not having any of it..... thanks,, im also looking forward, i was quite shocked i got this amount of detail really, from one 2 min sub, @ ISO200! too i might even try M31 & M33 again but centered in FOV when i go to the forest next, be nice to see what 5 hours worth of 2 min subs chucks out @ f2.8
  7. thank you all for the kind comments, im really eager to get out to my dark site now thats for sure and get some subs stacked
  8. Howdy folks, my old wired intervalometer broke, it was a cheap £5 that has lasted me a few years so happy with the use from it. How ever now im in the market for a new one, i dont mind going up to £30-£40 for one, now ive seen they have got wireless one, just wondering if anyone has had any experiance with them? they seem very nice, as im all ways fumbling at night trying to find my wired one, and most of the time i knock the tripod so these wireless seem great? i like how this one the receiver plugs on to the hot shoe also, would like to hear how they perform from some real people on here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400842644628?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  9. Ah tell me about it buddy, it's a dream for me compared to setting up the scope imaging Literally 5 mins and your ready to start shooting, one thing tho I'm not use to having so many objects in one field of view lool, it's a good thing tho, can't wait to try some more with the nifty fifty that s for sure Hi Alan, wow thanks for that! I'm terrible at star hopping, that's what eqmod is for haha, again thanks for taking the time to star hop me to M33
  10. thanks all for the kind comments, would someone mind ringing the triangulum galaxy for me lol these are both 1 sub @ 120 seconds ISO200
  11. thanks buddy, it feels good to get some imaging in i have to admit, ah how cool, i had not even noticed i got the Triangulum also!
  12. Hi all, its been what feels like a life time since ive had my scope out imaging.....last night we had about an hour gap in cloud, so i got my heq5 out in the garden, i could not be bothered getting the scope and laptop out or with the long winded setup and getting guiding going etc, so i thought why dont i just image with the DSLR?.........lol, this was the first time ive tried imaging with the dslr with a lens on and it was a nice change i can tell you, within 5 mins i was setup and polar aligned, but then i found out my shutter release is playing up and would not take shots automatically so i had to manually keep the shutter open which was a pain, but none the less i loved it and got a couple images im happy with which i was not expecting at all for a quick setup and rushed polar alignment lol..... HEQ5 - Canon 7D, nifty fifty stopped down to f2.8, ISO200, 121 second exposures, i cant wait to test this combo out at my dark site in the forest with a lot of subs! Bagged Andromeda! (just lol) can you spot her by Martin Young, on Flickr cosmos through the tree's... by Martin Young, on Flickr
  13. awesome! and the full res is a nice treat look forward to seeing you finish this if you get the chance mate
  14. i do not think anyone is claiming a scope that is good enough to see colours/bands/even different band colouring on these distant exoplanets many lightyears away in my opinion i take this as a piece of art, no they are not original images, but it does not take away the enjoyment i get at looking and thinking about these distant worlds, just thought other people might enjoy it also, im sure they wont halt the building of the E-ELT solely on this "visualization"..... id love to get this printed in poster size, laminated and will take pride in my shed lol
  15. awesome how its done in like a graph format also, with up and down showing the density of the planets and left to right shows the temperatures they are, from hot to cold
  16. My good friend Dan sent me the link to this amazing visualization of over 500 exoplanets and since then i cant stop looking at it, ive got it as my desktop on my pc and phone, hope you also enjoy looking at this http://orig00.deviantart.net/505e/f/2015/294/8/e/exoplanets_by_jaysimons-d9dv6th.jpg http://www.iflscience.com/space/check-out-visulization-over-500-exoplanets
  17. thats a lovely image, so much going on in fact i think a B&W negative version would go down really well here
  18. very nice, been waiting to see what this lovely sun looks like on here what star did you use to get onto this target?
  19. wow thats an art piece, really like that
  20. very interesting read for a sunday morning is the mystery solved....... sounds like the star is consuming the planet.......... and wow i never knew it would take us 37,200! years to travel 1 light year! we have to be able to shave them years down surely http://anonhq.com/the-truth-about-nasas-alien-mega-structure-discovery/
  21. i really need to get back on the imaging bus.....b4 i know it, dark skies will be gone again... :(

  22. oh er.... i like them a lot, especially M33, very nicely done
