  3. Thanks for making me look at this supplier properly! Deposit paid a few weeks ago. Cheers Paul
  4. ...Thursday night looked like the final opportunity for a decent look at the comet. Waxing moon and cloudy forecasts. I realised that I could get an image of The Plough, NEOWISE and my home from the other side of Swaledale. Canon 6D MkII, Sigma 24mm, 8s, f1.4, iso800. Foreground taken 5 mins earlier before the streetlights are turned off. After leaving the comet I turned around to find that darkness had returned over the past 2 weeks and the summer Milky Way was visible to the south. Same tech. details. A short cruise of the Milky Way and Messier objects with the binoculars finished off a lovely session. Wishing all the best for the new astro season! Paul
  5. The juxtaposition of faint fuzzies near and far is pretty cool!
  6. ...limited to 6 x 30s subs. Cloud kept forming directly to the NNW last night. Nowhere else!! Canon 6D MkII, Canon 200mm at f2.8, iso 800. Processed beyond reason in DSS, Lightroom and Photoshop. The odd artefact or three...
  7. Portrait - 3 pane mosaic. Canon 6D MkII, 200mm. Reeth Village and comet. Landscape Canon 7D MkII Sigma 24mm. Reeth, Fremington, comet and NLCs. Wonderful to see so many enjoying the view!! Cheers Paul
  8. Cheers! Though I'm keen on having two arms and two legs... ...many thanks. Paul
  9. Hello all... I'm looking at various UK suppliers. Some premium (gulp), some less so. For various reasons am not able to build from scratch. I could enhance a prebuilt structure, with some help. I've found these suppliers https://www.taylorsgardenbuildings.co.uk/roll-on-roll-off-roof-observatory-shed-1-82x1-82m.html https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/shedshedshedsandfencing Does anyone have any experience of the above? Any other suppliers that people might suggest/recommend? Many thanks Paul
  10. Thank you! Turned out to be a nice image with, rather than of, noctilucent clouds Paul
  11. Cat and mouse with clouds last night (21/22 June). 5 pane mosaic. Canon 6D, Sigma 24mm, Nodal Ninja, 1s at f1.4 and iso400. LR, ICE and PS. 1/4 res image. Darkened room viewing. Cheers, Paul
  12. Thank you. I'll be asking you what worked later... ...have also looked at your pier setup. Matching the camera with a RASA 8. Cheers Paul
  13. Likewise Dave! Have you looked into attaching Canon fit photo lenses? Cheers Paul
