  1. Thank you all for the comments! I've seen noctilucent clouds a couple of times earlier, but nothing like this before! I hope I'll get another night like this before the summer is over...
  2. I too agree that this is a lovely image, though I'm a little biased as I too like the less popular planets :-)
  3. Excellent capture! I can imagine there is a great deal of planning for something like this. How did you frame the object? Do you trust your goto so much that it centers the object? :-)
  4. I live in an apartment in the city center of Stockholm so I usually don't do any astronomy from my apartment, but now I finally got a chance to do so. When the noctilucent clouds started, I was not at home being with my friends. When I saw the show I had to say goodbye to everybody and run home. The movie consists of 656 pictures, taken 10 seconds between each other. Taken between 2014-07-11 22:40 and 2014-07-12 00:31 UTC. Click the icon to watch the movie: Noctilucent clouds are the highest clouds in Earth's atmosphere at around 80km altitude. What a great night it was!
  5. Those are power cables. I need the cable for camera control (shutter). Sorry if I was unclear.
  6. I was thinking of using the synscan to control my Canon 600D so that I never have to worry that my camera shutter runs out of battery. With the synscan this is possible to do with the multi-purpose port (see chapter 11.4, page 47 and 50 of 51 in the PDF, located here: http://skywatcher.com/downloads/HEQ&EQ6+Hand%20Control.pdf This requires that I built a cable. My electrical skills are bottom-low and the last time I tried soldering something for another project it ended up with burnt electronics My question is: does anyone know where I can find this cable that goes from the multi-purpose port of the Synscan to the Canon 600D?
  7. I too want to agree that the NEQ6 Pro is pretty silent. When I'm out with my friend (which has a Meade LX200GPS mount) the Meade is a lot noisier! You have a pretty decent "sound test" on this youtube-clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23G83RhQhys
  8. Looking really good! Your first attempt looks way better than mine!
