  1. New WO73 fpl53 glass.

    FCD-100 is a Hoya product: https://refractiveindex.info/?shelf=glass&book=HOYA-FCD&page=FCD1
  2. I love my Celestron 100ED. Beautiful colour correction. I know coupling this with a Atik 314 would make a nice close up imaging scope for galaxies.
  3. Nice camera Steve, as you say its a nice introduction from users of DSLR's into dedicated Astro Cameras, and the camera looks a bit meaty as well.
  4. NGC7000 - H-alpha DSLR

    Was thinking over buying one of those 12nm Astronomik Clip in filters, the more I see these images, the more I want one. Nice processing BTW.
  5. Mono ccd

    Now can be found on a Astro Dealers s/h website
  6. Buy the 130PDS, it gives a nice fov. Similar to an 80ED but faster. There's hardly any difference between a 150 and 200mm
  7. They have probably have had this technology for a while. Mainly used for defense research in the beginning or from reversed alien technology. Very deep black projects which come to light after a couple of decades. One example would be the SR71 Blackbird, 20 years ahead of its time, theres one in Duxford Air Museum, truly a magnificent plane.
  8. I would opt for the gso.
  9. The Sun Through Sahara Sand

    it reminded me of a scene from the recent V series - The Red Sky.
  10. I like the colour of mine (red)
  11. Hi NGC281, The Pac Man Nebula in Cassiopeia, taken with a Celestron C80ED at f/6.37. Exposures were 12x600 Secs lights with calibration files. Taken with a Modded 1100D camera.
  12. Those are some amazing pictures, especially Blast off.
  13. 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.
