  1. Thanks Giovanni, Yes, I used the Badder MPCC. You can get the Skywatcher one as well though I have only used the Baader one. Stay safe!
  2. I added some 3 year old one shot RGB data to some Ha (3.5 hrs, iso 800, 10 min subs) that I got a few nights ago. I lost some fov because of misaligned images, but not too bad overall. It's nice to give old images a bit of a boost!
  3. This is my last imaging for a bit and it didn't go all to plan, with some guiding issues and noisy subs. 22 x 10 min, iso 800, ha filter. The Veil is the remnants of a Supernova some 8000 years ago. The Star was 20 times larger than our own Sun. The diameter is enormous, estimated at 130 light years.
  4. Congrats.... that's about 2000% better than my first attempt!
  5. I managed to do a better job this time... Here is original post:- Here is version 2...
  6. I have no idea! I always get that with bright stars. Sometimes its a nuisance because you get long spikes from stars that are not even in the image .
  7. This is 43 X 5 min, iso 1600, UHC filter, Flats, bias and dithered. Stacked in DSS and processed in PS. I really like this bit of sky!
  8. I got 3 hrs of one shot RGB, 6 X 5 min, iso 400, last night and added it to some Ha I got a couple of years ago. Hence the star spikes don't match and and lost much of the image because both the images were out of orientation. Better than nothing though! It will look OK on a phone Stay safe...
  9. I usually start at 5 mins, iso 400, no filters, and if the histo is too far to the right, reduce it.
  10. I have re-processed and done a more restrained, cleaner job and retained some of the more subtle colours from the rgb image. I used Ollies 'lighten mode' suggestion for it which did a better job, combined with better dealing with the colour gradients in the rgb image.
  11. Here is a couple with a Star 71 and 100D dslr. Not ideal for galaxies at all but you can get some nice results.
  12. From last night. 24 X 5 min subs, iso 400. DSS and PS. First one is the uncropped and the second is cropped and processed a bit more to highlight the galaxies more.
  13. This 35 X 10 min Ha, iso 1600 and 45 x 4 min RGB, iso 400 (nearly 9 hours) combined into a HaRGB effort. DSS and PS. Star 71 and 100D. I think its almost pretty good but had trouble with the colours again and horrid colour gradients... I've already spent too long processing this! Re-processed... 27.4.20 Much better I think!
  14. Hi Paul, I use an HEQ5 and guide with a Lacerta MGEN and an Orion 50mm guidescope. No computers .
