    Really nice affect on the dust lanes, great image!
  5. Skywatcher 100Ed 2.5 powermate, Zwo 224MC. Mars Gain= 31 Exposure=0.015737 Uranus Gain=258 Exposure=0.058589 Thursday night here had some really good seeing so I decided to try some imaging again. The night was nearly a disaster when noticed my dew heater cables were unplugged when switching from Saturn to Mars! and the lens was full of dew. Explains why I could not get decent focus on Saturn Once everything was dry again I began. I managed to image Olympus Mons on Mars this time so really happy. I then switched over to Uranus and after about 10 minutes of switching between eyepiece and camera I was amazed to see a bluish out of focus blob on the screen, tried focusing best I could and this is the result. I just need Neptune now for my set, can't wait! Uranus at 200%, Mars at 100%
  6. Hehe, I am going to need a longer selfie stick
  7. CraigT82 has a Mars post and I can see clouds in his data, so I would say they are clouds.
  8. With the addition of Mars my quest to image all the planets in the Solar system and our Moon took a step forward. All the images were taken with the ASI 224MC apart from the 2012 Jupiter which was captured using a SPC 900. Uranus is going to be my next target. Also I am claiming the Mercury transit as my Mercury for now
  9. I joined all the separate AVI clips into one large video using pipp. I then auto aligned the RGB in RegiStax and stacked the best 80%. Slight sharpen and warming filter in PS. I prefer the following version. 150% and 100%
  10. I much prefer the first image.
  11. Managed to get a practice run in on Thursday night ready for the 13th. My first Mars so really happy. Used sharpcap, 2000 frames. Gain 33, Exposure 21ms.
  12. Great first attempt. I can see some drift in the stars, maybe try some deconvolution to adjust them?
  13. M33 captured over 4 nights, 16hrs of data using 300sec subs, darks from library, mixed flats for an average and bias frames. Camera: Canon 600D. Everything put into Deep Sky Stacker and the resulting image processed in PS. I used a video made by Scott Rosen on processing to help me process and I learnt some really powerful techniques to use in PS. I think this is my best processed image to date, so I feel happy I have made some progress. Looking forward to reprocessing my old data armed with the new knowledge .
