  1. i am so sorry too. Finally received my mount but sadly the part where counterweight axis tight is damaged. the problem is aesthetic but definitely this part needs to be replaced fortunately it does not affect the operation and i managed to do some tests
  2. Hi, Very informative topic, thank you all. As my mount is on the way I learned a lot of things here. May I ask if finally you have resolve the meridian flip problems and reverse settings problems? May someone post the “working settings” of PHD, SGP and Sitech? Thank you Manos
  3. Hi, Also I placed order back in October of 2020 and the mount its on the way. Lucas is very responsive and answer to all of my question. As I don't find any video on YouTube about how to setup the mount I am thinking very seriously to take some videos for my YouTube channel on how to set up the mount and what settings you need to make in the software.
  4. I'm at the stage where I'm looking for plans to finally make my own observatory and this thread inspire me @DaveS
  5. Hi Olly and Chris thank you for advices. the proccesing method I used is tone mapping the ou4 it is very difficult to enhanced without that. I used Pi only for dbe and rgb combine for other steps only photoshop . The noise reduction is on chrominance And lum only by 30 percent.
  6. If you use the reducer the field still the same so you have fast telescope 3.6f and field 2.17 arc/sec
  7. Both 383 and 460 but Αtik 460 its more sensitive and collect a lot more information....
  8. Υes, of course just send me an email with p.m.
  9. Sh2 129 large emission nebula in the constellation Cepheus. The highlight of the image definitely is the object Ou4 ''Squid Nebula'' light on Oxygen line. Discovered by Nicolas Outters in 2011. Full resolution and Technical details: http://www.astrobin.com/235869/
  10. The Bubble Nebula (NGC7635) is one of three shells of gas surrounding the massive star BD+602522, the bright star near the center of the bubble. Energetic radiation from the star ionizes the shell, causing it to glow. About six light-years in diameter, the Bubble Nebula is located in the direction of the constellation Cassiopeia.

Ha 6x1200sec Bin 1x1 at -15
  11. Hi, Difficult target wtih a complex dark nebula and low light reflections. I tried to give a soft natural looking without exaggeration on color and contrast. S 155, also known as the Cave Nebula, Sh2-155 or Caldwell 9, is a dim and very diffuse bright nebula within a larger nebula complex containing emission, reflection, and dark nebulosity. It is located in the constellation Cepheus. Visually it is a difficult object, but with adequate exposure, makes a striking image. The nebula gets its name Cave Nebula from the dark lane at the eastern side abutting the brightest curve of emission nebulosity which gives the appearance of a deep cave when seen through a telescope visually. Takahashi FSQ-106ED with Camera Atik 383L+. Guiding with Atik OAG & Lodestar Autoguider. Capture details: LUM 50X600sec Bin 1x1 at -15c. RGB 12X600sec each filter Bin 1x1 at -15c.

  13. Hi check here my latest image. Iris Nebula NGC 7023. RGB 9X600sec each filter Bin 1x1 at -10c. Νεφέλωμα ανάκλασης στον αστερισμό του Κηφέα. The Iris Nebula, also NGC 7023 and Caldwell 4, is a bright reflection nebula and Caldwell object in the constellation Cepheus. Takahashi FSQ-106ED with Camera Atik 383L+. Guiding with Atik OAG & Lodestar Autoguider. Capture details: LUM 30X300sec Bin 1x1 at -10c.
