  1. This Covid-19 outbreak reminds me of a film called Contagion.
  2. I don't like those clamp shells. Maybe having tube rings would have pushed up the retail price.
  3. Wonderful image with nice processing
  4. I was until the leisure battery started to go low, so had to pack up.
  5. I love newtonian spikes showing the spectrum effect, just hate adding them with processing software.
  6. The colour rendering is wonderful.
  7. Try spacing upto 60mm. What total length of spacing do you have?
  8. I have 4 renditions of this. I found the decreasing the stretch to reduce the red blotches also the faint stuff would be faint as well. I did use a noise reduction filter but not aggressively. Even though it would have giving a slight better balance of colours. I do wonder are the blotches are more apparent due to the length of subs taken, as the noise levels on coloured cmos cameras to be much more then a conventional ccd sensors. Maybe someone with more knowledge then I can comment. N.
  9. Buy one of these. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dovetails-saddles-clamps/primaluce-lab-240mm-plus-vixen-dovetail.html
  10. It's a beautiful rendering close up, what are your acquisition details may I ask? N.
  11. I think you are quite right. I have tried a couple of coma correctors but always found the Skywatcher 0.9x corrector to be better especially when it comes to using a DSLR as I never needed spacing. I found baader to be fiddly in spacing even with a DSLR. I have found spacing around 60mm to be better when using SW CC with my ASI294MC Pro and the 130PDS This image is my latest using the above equipment. Regarding reflections, the only time I observed reflections was when I was using LRGB filters on a mono camera using the 130PDS. I put it down to filter coatings myself. Nadeem.
  12. I took this image of NGC2264 from Monday night, while processing I realised I might have lengthened my subs too long using my ASI 294MC Pro instead of taking shorter subs, I let you be the judge. Taken with 36x300 Subs with using a Optolong L-Enhance filter using a Skywatcher 130PDS & SW CC 0.9x N.
  13. My hat off to you for a wonderful composed image. The colours are nicely balanced, may I ask please what was your data capture details?
  14. I don't blame you and you never get the same again unless its fate.
