  1. i need to sort a wedge at some point .... if i polar align the tripod / mount will i be able to just put the scope on and go each time ..... as i dont want to polar align each time i go out...... then hopefully i should be able to take longer images for better finished products colinb
  2. hi i just learn as i go along and if u get stuck just ask questions on forums. i have a canon full frame camera u need a t ring and adaptor to fit camera to telescope
  3. hi will do wen / if given the chance weather is rough at moment
  4. Hi I have an evolution 9.25 using 6d at prime focus I tried stacking 12 or so raw images . I realise that 12000 is prob way over what I needed I mixed in A couple of images can at around 1600 . But I've only just got camera and I'm giving it a try I shot some at 25000 and 52000 as well ..Apart from blowing the middle I didn't think 12000 clone too bad
  5. Hi how long was each exposure how many seconds at ISO 400 ..I think the 6d can work at 3200 with low noise value at 20 to 30 second exposures ..Do you have your scope polar aligned colin
  6. Hi Thanx I have all images in raw I'll try again must admit the centre is over shot a lot of the images are at ISO 12000 .Do u think I should take some at a lower ISO say 1600 then a few more a little higher and so on up to 12000 to give me a better centre . ? As for affinity photo I have never used any photo editing software before so am on a learning curve . I only used the basic tools on there . Exposure, .Curves histogram,, etc but I see what I mean about the green but I quite liked the smokey effect that it showed up . I'll play around again with it again though.... I have a couple more end results so far with more red in them... I used a uhc filter clipin with the camera. And it seems to work well maybe I could send u an,original raw image to see what it should really end up like. Thanx for taking an interest and replying Colin

  8. hi this is one of the first images using canon 6d and affinity photo does anyone here use affinity photo ? any tips ? colin
  9. hi 2017 and i have a problem with t adaptor for eos canon ordered one and movement was evident . just sent it back and the new one has also got movement if u watch when u load it too the camera the small spring pin popped up as the adaptor is turned . this pin should lock the adaptor but as the groove in the adaptor has been machined a little wide and possibly in wrong position the movement is evident . obviously the movement is quite an amount on the o.d of the adaptor. i would of thought any movement is bad after talking to the two different suppliers they have both said they have had no problems with them colin
  10. Hi already been out just now an took some quick snaps while it was still light .I'll go try again I After dinner
