  1. Tracking solar

    As David said plus plenty of patience waiting for Sol to appear.
  2. 200mm Toscano RC and SX694 9 x 300secs binned 2x2
  3. 200mm Toscano RC and SX694 27 x 300secs test run ,scope needs collimating and a note to the user to do flats before removing CCD in future
  4. Eskimo NGC2392

    Very nicely done. Must have another go at it myself.
  5. The Sun - Feb 17th

    What is this sun you speak of? Very nice
  6. NGC 2903

    Did you threaten it with massive violence ,take the dog for a walk and have a brew, if not thats the reason. if they allow me back near the front I will run it again this year.
  9. IC417 Hubble palette

    Taken with TS71 imaging star The rgb 's were 300secs each bined 2x2 and TBH I am not sure how many of the 20 subs of each went into the image its either 1 of each of 20 of each. The ha was 26 subs @1800 secs the O3 was 18 @1800 secs the subs were aligned in registar, stacked in maxim (at this stage the flats got omitted) the colour image was constructed in PS using Annies actions. The image was split into the 3 colour channels and the stars removed using Stratton (yay I got it to work-ish)recombined in PS and then the rgb was layer on top for the stars. I intend to redo the lot using the flats and in a sober state at a reasonable time of day -ie not finishing at nearly 4 am.

    Not too dodgy at all. Was fighting with the collimation on the RC, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.

  12. IC417 Ha RGB

    I took subs of 1800secs for the ha and 300secs for the rgb and am currently doing O3 @1800 secs. the ha looked like this

    Done, finished,final, had enough of this now (unless I update it) click through for full res
  15. Solved - I was treating the data as unsigned when in fact it is signed
