  1. Really like this, great detail, colour and pop - super!
  2. That really is a great piece of work, stunning! For my personal taste though I'm inclined to agree with Wim - I generally prefer to see a distinct glow around the more luminous areas of any AP image as I feel it gives a greater sense of depth and dynamic. Having said that, I still think it's superb - well done that man!
  3. That's lovely! As others have said, super detail and really nice, tight stars - well done sir!
  4. Here's a picture with the green plug with the screw terminals removed, showing the socket.
  5. It's difficult to see from the picture, but the green power connector is a plug and socket affair - the conductors don't clip in a la speaker connectors on domestic amps, they screw into a plug that locates in a socket.
  6. Hi Andy Yes it will - I modified mine to have the standard 2.1mm socket but if you get a standard cable with a cigar plug on one end you can chop the plug off the other end and bare the wires which will terminate into the plug/socket provided. Alternatively you could make your own cable if you're handy with a soldering iron. There's some at a good price here - they really are very good, reliable hubs and don't fail when the temperature drops below zero. Hope that makes sense! Rich
  7. I've used a Star Tech Industrial Hub for years and it's never let me down. The same hub comes in a 7 port configuration - no usb 3.0 though. HTH Rich
  8. Yet again, a wonderful image Fernando, keep 'em coming!
  9. Many thanks for this Pieter - I've been considering upgrading from my QHY9 to this camera as the smaller pixels would suit my widefield rig very nicely. Your image has given me the confidence to pull the trigger when funds allow, excellent stuff!
  10. That's lovely Rodd, fantastic image!
  11. From the album HaRGB images

    2 hours HA and RGB shot with dual rig under dark skies at Surprise View, Derbyshire on 15th March 2017.
