  1. Images taken on 26th 27th 28th March with Atemis 285 skywatcher 100ed 0.85x My focuser pro 2 HEQ6 CCDCIEL GS Server The star Gamma Ursae Majoris is leaking at top right maybe need to look at flocking my scope . The star spikes are software. Thanks for looking .
  2. Looks like pinched optics .This image is from a 80mm refractor I had in 2014 I could have fixed the problem by loosening retaining ring on objective lens but exchanged the scope instead .
  3. Less aircraft traffic and less road traffic pollution .
  4. Cheers Martin had a look at there web site under contact didn't see where I could upload a file karl

  9. I got a Artemis 285 which is the same camera off ABS. It cost £300 . I had to make new seals for optical window and buy some desiccant but otherwise its giving good results .Usb 1 is slow for bias as each download is 13 seconds binning 1 .But for a 300 second light frame 13 secs not so bad. This is an image I am working on - M51 60 x 300 secs bias & flats Go for it . M51.tiff
