  1. Sorry for hijacking the thread, but I have a thought here. Hmm, so Ollys blue stars contain more blue? If we disregard scope types and Noels actions and think about this in a scientific way instead, there might be other reasons to star colour differences. Atmosphere eats up the blue light and a higher elevation of the object photographed increases its relative colour intensity. Did you compare your altitude above mean sea level and the elevation of the object when photographed? I might be very wrong here, but I suppose Olly is situated quite a bit higher up than most of us, and thus get a little star colour bonus. In reality, this might be so small that its unnoticeable, but at least its an interesting thought!
  2. Impressive for the lenght of subs!!looks really good!
  3. Hello Göran, very impressive dslr images! Inspiring for me as a fellow dslr user!
  4. Nice and sharp capture! Although I myself would prefer a more "realistic" look on the colours. Maybe it is your monitor calibration?
  5. Agree with others; nice subtle processing. Erik
  6. Fantastic colours! I like this very much! /Erik
  7. I like it a lot. I would like to give it a go on this galaxy with my modded dslr as well!
  8. Thanks laudropb! Thank you Chris! Thank you Paul! Yes sometimes less is more, and even though this was a testrun, I believe a too deep rendition removes a bit of the mystique of space. Erik
  9. Agree with all other comments! Nice job?
  10. Hi there Scott!, And thank you! Yes the maths are correct; only a few exposures here. I tried 1/2/3 mins but had some problems with autoguiding, so I decided on short exposures. I got "saturated star" warning and poor guiding stability, and it was my own fault choosing 1 sec update on guiding, making phd a bit stressed out! At least I think this was the reason. Anyways, we just moved to a new house with clear unobstructed view south without disturbing light! And that makes a big difference. /Erik
  11. Thank you wimvb! Yeah, garage floor collimation is an upcoming trend, you should try it?? The trick is to drop the scope at the right height and angle!
  12. Hello all, finally I got a chance to use my scope again, after a long pause due weather and work. After banging the scope against the garagefloor, I was expecting some collimation problems. When setting the scope up, I was worried that this incident might have caused problems, but when looking at the first image my stars were better than ever! Since I haven´t been using my things for a while I decided to just go for a quick checkride on M42. Everything seemed to work fine, except some autoguiding problems now and then, so I am looking forward to imaging more coming months. This image consists of roughly 10x20 secs + 10x5secs at ISO 1600 with my modded Canon. No specials, and I know you guys have been posting and seeing a lot of this target, but I still want to post it, since I always appreciate ideas and comments!
  13. A fine image as always! But, since you welcomed opinions, I think the first one is more attractive. Pure scientific, I guess the second image would be interesting /Erik
  14. Phuh! Thank you guys! So everything´s just fine then! Hmm, I was about to sell mine for an ED80 instead, need more FOV, but maybe I should keep it.... Erik
  15. Hi all, I have a question for you MN190 owners. I was going through my scope because I might be selling or trading it, and noticed that the tube isn´t perfectly round all the way. Is it just a seam from manufacturing, or is it something else? You can feel that the roundness is a bit "bevelled"/flatter along the whole scope on one side, approx 2cm wide. You can barely notice it if you dont have hawk eyes... Can someone with a 190 pls take a quick look!? Thank you for helping me. Best regards, Erik
  16. Impressive image!! The hi-res version is something special. /Erik
  17. Agree with all others, fantastic processing! I like that you have not overdone the noisereduction.
  18. A very fine image! I like the full resolution. /Erik
  19. Nice image! One thing you could try iis to download Regim, and tell it which object you are imaging, and then it will calibrate it to a G2V star and normalize your background. It works well and it is also freeware. /Erik
  20. Here is a total rework of the image I posted earlier. Used a form of light DDP in IRIS, and then worked from there. I think it looks better now, with a better hint of the dust around the galaxy. Interesting is that you also can see spiral galaxy NGC906 and NGC909 in lower left corner. I am now happy with the data I have dug up from these 30 mins of exposure. Still struggling with the background and noise, but with more subs it should be alright. What do you think? Criticism or tips is more than welcome!
  21. That´s really impressive Louis! I like the mood in the mono image:-)
  22. Thank you very much Ishan and Sara! Much appreciated. Ishan - the link to where you can get Regim is here; http://www.andreasroerig.de/regim/regim_e.htm
  23. Thank you Pete. My next object will consist of more subs
