  1. Thanks for the pointers, I have to say that I have not done planets for so long I was realy having problems in getting everthing to work . Next time Ill give that ago, hope to get Mars next time.
  2. Hi all, with a small window in the cloud forcast i wasnt going to waste it so i thought I would have ago at the planets, something I havent done for a few years. The seeing was poor and I had to relearn how to use my old scope and camera. I got jupiter and Saturn but gave up getting Mars as moon glow and mist put an end to the session. So here they are, taken with my old and dusty SW 127 mak and a ASI 120 mc ( that old usg 2 is so slow! only managed a max of 5 frps! } I know they could be better but im pleased with the results. Hins and tips welcome thanks for looking.
  3. Stunning! Wish I had the patience to stay with a target that long.
  4. Had ago to remove some of the red, not sure if it worked.
  5. Thank you, I have just changed the HOO image as i uploaded the wrong one. I think Im leaning towards the HOO just for the colour.
  6. Just noticed how green the backgorund looks in the SHO image so ran another SCNR over it, a little better I think.
  7. After me quick go at M16 I thought I would try M 27 as it wouldnt hide behind the house for quite a while and I should be able to get somthing like a finished pic. Here is 2 versions one in HOO and the other in SHO. Not sure which I like best. Taken with my SW 72ed using my ASI 1600mm. All cropped heavily due to poor alignment by me. Hints and tips welcome. and a wider field shot
  8. V nice, Im working towards a SHO image of this target, got the Ha and Oiii but strugling to find a clear window for Si. Hope mine comes out as good as this.
  9. Yep, v nice. Will have to look at doing this target myself.
  10. Still nice despite the seeing.
  11. V nice, working on this target at the moment. Hopefully weather will let me finish this one soon.
  12. All v nice, Like the Ha starless a lot.
