    Large magellanic cloud

    thank you, TheMan Thank you, DP. I'll try to get more southern objects imaged. there are some beautiful ones out there
  5. Hi everyone, been a while since a post an image due to the rainy season here in Brazil and also my lack of patience to mount everything up because of all the heat (summertime, about 40c durin the day and sometimes 30c at night). this is a stack from 3 different nights, making a total of 2h 45 min( i plan to add some more data to it). According to wikipedia: "The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way.[5] At a distance of about 50 kiloparsecs (≈163,000 light-years),[2][6][7][8] the LMC is the second- or third-closest galaxy to the Milky Way, after the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal (~16 kpc) and the possible dwarf irregular galaxy known as the Canis Major Overdensity. Based on readily visible stars and a mass of approximately 10 billion solar masses, the diameter of the LMC is about 14,000 light-years (4.3 kpc), making it roughly one one-hundredth as massive as the Milky Way.[3] This makes the LMC the fourth-largest galaxy in the Local Group, after the Andromeda Galaxy (M31), the Milky Way, and the Triangulum Galaxy (M33)." This was taken with a canon t5i and a 135mm tokina lens, i had to crop a good portion because of different stacking orientation. Hope you like it.

    APT Plate solving problem with PS2

    hi Carole, only thing different here is the all sky plate solver directory, mine is under: "C:\Program Files (x86)\PlateSolver" another thing, can you please post a screenshot of your all sky plate solver indexes? open the program and select the indexes menu and select index installation wizard. In mine i have installed the indexes for my 130pds and a 135mm lens. if all is configured correctly you can test with the stand alone program so we can check if the error is within the apt settings or asps itself. to test it, you go under settings, plate solver settings and insert the scope focal length and your camera pixel size. here is a screenshot of mine: after you enter the focal length and pixel size, you select your image and hit the plate solve button. if it solves, than it is working fine and we can move to the apt configuration. just remember to close it before trying to run inside apt. hth

    EQASCOM wont run

    Eqascom flickers like that when it can't connect to the mount, It keeps trying to connect all the time. How are you setting it up and connecting to the mount ? You have to choose the correct port If you are using an eqdir cable or using the pc direct mode with a usb adapter. Like tooth_dr and Cornelius varlei said above, try running toolbox, make sure eqmod.exe is selected under windows and ascom registration and press the register button. It's normal to have an error notification followed by a success one. After that, click on driver setup and choose the correct port( You can check that under windows devices and printers) and press ok. If all went well it should connect after that.

    3D Printers

    I just finished a print of a saturn V rocket model i found on thingiverse. this is the model i used: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:45316 We had a blackout due to a heavy rain that hit tonight and the resume function worked as it should. The print came out really nice. Here is a picture of it:

    APT 3.60 with Auto Meridian Flip

    Great news. Merry Christmas.
  10. It looks like walking noise to me. I used to have this in almost all of my images. Dithering between frames should handle it nicely.

    Stellarium Telescope control problem

    Did you check the box to auto load the telescope plugin when stellarium is started? After that, close stellarium and try clicking the "start stellarium" button in stellarium scope.

    3D Printers

    I was trying to make a m48 t2 adapter for my coma corrector but i couldn't create a custom thread in fusion 360. If someone could help me out with this i can make a test print to see how it goes.

    Interesting. Do you cover the whole glass? Does it get ripped with the models when you remove them?

    Piezo sensor looks interesting, is there any videos showing it fitted to an ender?
