  1. Superb image Paul, love the trees sitting on the horizon
  2. thanks for the heads up Stu, just checked Stellarium and the moon will be sitting in between Venus and Jupiter!
  3. I use a 1.4x extender with my Canon 80D and ED120 for lunar shots and it works great
  4. Incredible! I could watch this all day
  5. There's another mod for the SW stock focuser that's a bit more involved.

    Moonlit Caldera

    Stunning photo, absolutely stunning!
  7. great thread for recommendations, I'm thinking about a trip next year too so this is very useful thanks. Thats a great image Dave, looking forward to seeing more from your trip
  8. Due to a change in my imaging rig I no longer need this filter as I've downsized to the 1.25" version. Comes in this foam box and will be well padded during postage. It's in immaculate condition, £120 inc postage (RM tracked delivery, will post to UK only) Paypal accepted.
  9. It was a nice cold clear night so setup the ED120 and took about 800 frames with my Canon 80D + 1.4x teleconverter (ISO 200 @ 1/60th sec) Processed in Registax 5 using the best 200 frames
  10. thanks, the teleconverter is a Kenko Pro 300 which gives a little extra reach and is cheaper than the official Canon ones.
  11. It was a cold clear night and seeing wasn't too bad so took out the ED120 with Canon 80D and 1.4x teleconverter. Stack of 400 frames using Registax 5
  12. Hey Davy Harperrig is indeed a popular spot especially those from the Central Scotland Observers Group, they are friendly bunch so its worth dropping them line as they organise meet ups when the clouds are away. Its a good opportunaty to meet like minded folk for help and advice and to check out some astro gear . I more of an imager so my not-so-portable gear is planted in my garden in Duddingston
  13. Hi Davy wishing you a warm welcome to SGL from someone else in Edinburgh!
  14. Not done any lunar imaging for a while so felt a bit rusty... at least in the processing side of things Stack of 600 frames from Canon 80D attached to ED120
  15. Stunning detail you managed to capture there!
  16. Hi and welcome to SGL (also from Edinburgh)
  17. Do those two screws (behind that single finder screw) come in contact with the draw tube at all? I had a finder / guidescope attached using those two screws as well because the spacing was perfect
  18. fantastic shots of the aurora, looking forward to seeing the timelapse
