  1. Many thanks Greg. Will be watching this one - if I get to see it that is - just hope it keeps on course Regards, Dave.
  2. James, that's superb!! Hopefully, when I've got chance this weekend will pop my 300D onto my LX90 and if I can track without too much movement will try the Ring Nebula. You've given me some ideas as to what exposures to use bearing in mind that the 90 is at F10 in prime focus...but looking forward to the session. Nice image though - I will have to work hard to match that one!! Cheers, Dave.
  3. Andrew - that was an excellent read!! Really enjoyed it and will certainly refer back to it Best regrads, Dave.
  4. Excuse the pun but - out of this World!! Superb image Martin, it's on my list at present Best regards, Dave.
  5. Nice shot Greg, How did you capture it? Was it a single exposure or a multiple stack? Saw it last night and the night before for the very first time - was absolutely stunned as the LX90 had only been set up on Vega and Arcturus and when using the handset and goto - went straight to it and stayed there with it!! Looking forward to capturing an image - with my 300D but not too sure what would be the best exposure period ( subject to movement ). I'll try with Prime focus through the 90 and hopefully may try again this evening, must admit though although not too much in the way of clouds, the sky seems to be full of a very light haze even around midnight. Anyway - seeing yours has given me the urge to carry on Cheers for now, Dave.
  6. Absolutely, fabulous image!! I was trying to capture last night - the wind was awful to say the least - will try this evening although there's some light cloud about. Got to get a Barlow !! Cheers, Dave.
  7. Hi James, Thanks for that - it's a 2.66 GHZ running 512 ram - only runs Stary night pro 5 in background. Have managed to use the link you advised and actually have got a couple of the AVI's running and processed - superb, just chopped the affending end of the file a couple of frames and re saved the AVI under a new name and it worked. Will be keeping myself busy now trying to make a decent Jupiter image. Really appreciate the help mate Best regards, Dave.
  8. Hi Gordon and James, Fantastic - will give them both a try - have been storing AVI's so looking forward to getting around this prob. Cheers guys, Really appreciated. B Regards, Dave.
  9. Hi All, Iv'e been using Registax3 and 2 and for some reason when nearly 95%+ the note pops up advising unable to decompress AVI frame - not too sure what that's all about but it stops the optimisation and stacking in it's tracks! If anyone has any info re this and what it may mean I would certainly appreciate any ideas anyone may have please. All the best for now, going to setup the scope for tracking Jupiter again - I love that Planet - :jupiter:. Cheers Dave.
  10. Hi Philip, Many thanks indeed for the pointers - will certainly give them a try. Managed to capture a few AVI's last night and will have a go this evening after 9:30 - 10:00 once it's a little darker. Iv'e been using Registax3 and 2 and for some reason when nearly 95%+ the note pops up advising unable to decompress AVI frame - not too sure what that's all about but it stops the optimisation and stacking in it's tracks! If you know what it may mean would appreciate any ideas anyone may have please. All the best for now, going to setup the scope fro tracking. Cheers Dave.
  11. Hi Philip, Thats a fabulous image of Jupiter - I'm quite jealous as it's far better than mine!! LOL This is my attempt from last night - I'm already set now for this evenings attempt - need to get more colour I feel. I did this one as an AVI from my Neximage and my 8" LX90 - prime focus. I got around 421 frames and put them through Registax 3. What do you think? PS Having difficulties when sending the image - being advised login details incorrect ! :? Will retry in a second or two ... Cheers Dave. -- Excellent think I've managed to attach th epic now
  12. Hi Gaz, Many thanks - appreciate your offer, look forward to the update. Best regards, Dave.
  13. Hi Steve and Gaz, Many thanks indeed for the info - have tracked down the connector required. Will go for the 9pin to USB lead - should do the job nicely. Appreciate the replies - off to ge the order done. Best regards, Dave, East Devon.
  14. Hi, good afternoon all, Does anyone know how can I can link the lead from my LX90 EMC to a laptop? I've got the lead which connects to the Handset on the LX90 and at the other end is a 9 pin 'female'. My laptop (Toshiba Satellite 2450-101) is fitted at the rear with a Serial port (15 pin) female) and the printer port also female. There is also 3 USB 2's. Is there a converter available that can be fitted between the 9 pin female and then either the serial port 15 pin female or better still a USB (female)? Hope that all makes sense?? Ideally the converter needs to have the male end at both ends! Any help would be really appreciated, I'd like to see if I can setup viewing via the laptop if possible using my Starry Night Pro 5. All the best for now, Dave, East Devon.
