  1. M1 Crab

    V nice!
  2. I have been trying to get my Syn scan adapter to work for ages, If i use the phone app it works fine till I leave it for an hour and then nothing works till I restart! have had loads of problems trynig to get it to operate with Win 10. Must be somebody out there that can help. Its a great idea for reducing the amount of cables but in practice it seems v hit and miss.
  3. Cone in Ha and HaRGB

    Nice, really like it!
  4. QHY10 OR QHY8L?

    Not 100% sure but i think you will find its an internal reflection caused by the star, I get a few odd ones when i catch a bright star just right. A bit of pain I know but thats par for the course.

  13. Jelly on a plate!

    Hi all, Managed a couple of hours out side on Thursday so while the moon was still dozing i had a quick go at the Jelly fish. This is another WIP but with the data so far got im pleased with the result even if a there is a bit of noise. 20 x 8min subs taken at - 15 with my QHY 10 through my SW 130 pds. Hints and tips welcome.
  14. NGC 2244 (again!)
