  1. Narrowband Images 2017

    These are images taken since insatllation of Pulsar 2.20m Dome. Purchased Atik460ex and FW2 Summer 2016 from Ian King Astronomy but only started using serious since August this year. Pleased with progress made , few issues overcome, no doubt more to come.
  2. Another counterweight query...

    May I just make an enquiry. All your cables appear to go into Hub of some sort. What is this or is it part of the mount? Thanks.
  3. Elephant Trunt Nebula

    Few nights over past few weeks. approx 10 hours data in HA, SII, OII. Have had few issues with Flexure on some images, hopefully worked out the problem now but lost about 25% off images. 15min subs - 10. ED80 Pro, SW 80 Guide. Atik 460ex. NEQ6 Pro. Pulsar 2.20m Dome new installed thsi spring, but still very much a novice. Plenty to learn. Will be proccessing more in PS to Hubble Pallet but very much a novice on PS Clear Skies to all.
  4. NGC896

    Thanks. This is first image I have done using Narrowband Filters and ATIk460 which I purchased last Summer, so I am really on a big learning curce, as I am with Photoshop but I am getting there, I think
  5. NGC 896 , part of the Heart Nebula. This was my first attempt at Narrowband imaging carried out of the August bank holiday weekend 2017. Ha 12 x900sec, OIII 14x900sec, SII 14 x900. ED80pro, NEQ6 Pro MOunt. ST80 with Starshhot Guide (PHD2) Atik460ex Mono Processed using DSS and Photoshop 5 to best of my ability at the moment. I am no expert by long way, still lot to learn but very pleased with this image.
  6. This image is my second attempt with Narroiwband imaging. 7.5hours Integration Sept 2017. HA, OIII, SII. 30 x 900sec Stacked in DSS, Processed in PS5. Pretty pleased with result as limited expierience with Processing images. ED80 Pro, EQ6 Pro, ST80 with Starshoot Guide Camera. ATIK460ex with FW2. SGpro.
