  6. Hi below a first work out on the center of M33 http://stargazerslounge.com/gallery/image/20706-m33-center/ Canon EOS1100 D, unmodded, C8 at 6.3. 90 minutes at 1600 ISO. I turned to play on the centre, as I have too much vignetting to really play on the entire M33 I am new to process with Pixinsight (1 week, a cuple of hours) and just to say it is fantastic although I have been struggling to get used to it and all parameters to play with !! (so far my processing was with Nebulosity which is great but PI offer so much more possibilities) Enjoy

  13. Hi For your info, in the meantime i moved to a celestron C8 with focal reducer... But still enjoying very much the skymax as grab&go! But never got any input on my question above nor found some directions (apart moving on into a sct)
  14. I have same problems: no buttons "Delete" nor "Image moderation" anywhere I can go in any pages I open under my own gallery/albums/individual picture, under "edit gallery" etc etc... I remember it used ot be a button when being under EDIT gallery, beside rotating but nothing anymore.

  17. Hi Same problem, I would like to delete some pictures of my gallery, but simply cannot find the option (I remember it was possible under Edit gallery, beside "rotate" and "cover image", it used to be "delete" but it is not there anymore regards

  23. Hi ! Thanks. LP conditions are pretty good, although I am in the out south suburbs of a small town (18 000 inhabitants) rather isolated (no other "town" within 35 kms apart few villages), in my garden (but no direct light) and 180 degrees south direction if just forest, only few houses in between. The Cocoon is currently high in the evening, no moon, it is good conditions. Naked eye, I am about a magnitude of 4,5 to 5 when excellent transparency/no humidity/no moon. Also I forgot to mention I use a Baader Moon and Sky glow filter which I like very much in my slightly LP area, it makes the necessary kick and allows me to go up a bit in exposure time and/or ISO (without it, 1 min ISO1600 as above would not be as good, I would need to either go down ISO800 or decrease time maybe to 45 sec). I have really enjoyed the AVX since I got it late spring. PEC is very usefull as I am not (auto)-guiding -pretty happy to be able to use all my subs of 1 min at F10 with PEC enabled -without PEC, I am down to 50-60% usable at 1 min, F10-. I am still learning it and trying to push it (in principle I would have used a focal reducer 6.3 to capture above, but I am still looking first how good it works at F10 in getting good subs and happy with above 2 hours run thorugh 1 min shots). I think I shall be able to go to 90 sec maybe 120 sec at F6.3 with PEC while still keeping >90% usable. So I am still experimenting and learnign the limits of my set up.
  24. Hi Back in business now that nights are getting longer and "clearly" dark up here in sweden!! Started the season with the Cocoon nebula, see below Exactly 2 hours data, 120 *1min ISO 1600 with unmodded canon EOS1100d, unguided with SCT C8 on mount VX at F10 . Quite happy and I will add more data for sure another coming night. Also I stack almost all my subs but I think I can discard 10-20% of egg shape ones which shall turn in a sharper stack (stack in Nebulosity and final touch on gimp). I will see with more data and will post later on Enjoy
