  1. Those are some amazing pictures, especially Blast off.
  2. Following from my try at Cygnus in the Peak District I also captured Cassiopeia on the same night. Same lens was used a Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens with a Modded Canon 1100D with a Skywatcher Star Adventurer. 24x 1min at ISO800 with no LPR filter, no calibration files were used hence some nasty's in the pic.
  3. We had a fantastic time walking the snake path. Which our cottage was next to literally. Also no light pollution any where apart from a slight glow in the direction of Manchester
  4. This is my 2nd try out using the SW Star Adventurer mount, I used a 50mm f1.8 prime lens to capture this area in Cygnus. Taken with a Canon modded 1100D, 55x 1min at ISO800 with no LPR filter, no calibration files were used hence some nasties in the pic.

    Absolutely stunning image, in the end I opted for the sw star adventurer. I had it out the other night on a 50mm lens.

    If only I had the time for bigger instruments. A legend of a scope.
  7. your tiff. Cygnus widefield.tif
  8. Hope you don't mind and not to offend, but you put your tiff up. so I have made some changes to your image, you still have data in the image.

    I am genuinely eyeing one of these up from my setup. Can you a get a reducer for this and will it have enough focus travel?
  10. I am going to keep my Celestron C100ED and C80ED Refractors. I am not so kind .

    A nice M3 with star colour - also the background looks a bit clipped.
  12. the 2nd rendition is much nicer.

    I can see where this is going. This is where I will duck out. Just remember Martin to buy the collimation tools.
