  1. Neptune's large EQ spot...

    Brilliant work Darryl. Love the animation of what looks like a huge disturbance. Peter
  2. Here is a close up of big bright galaxy NGC6946 taken during the recent spell of warm clear nights. 25 x 5 min subs with OSC ST2000XCM on C14 at f/7. Amazed that this never made the Messier list. Supernova SN 2017eaw is still visible see red arrow - thank you andrew63 for pointing this out! Peter
  3. Saturn 12th Aug

    Excellent images under the conditions. I gave up on Saturn a while ago! Peter
  4. Io and Europa, double transit

    Lovely animation of the transits. Peter
  5. Cocoon Nebula

  6. Cocoon Nebula

    The cocoon nebula 33 x 5 min subs with ST2000XCM OSC on an ED80.
  7. Crescent nebula in moonlight

    Here is an image of the Crescent nebula NGC6888 in Cygnus taken with a gibbous moon causing sky brightening. Surprised I at what I did, but amazed at so many background stars in this region almost swamping the nebula. 15 x 5 mins subs with a ST2000XCM OSC on an ED80. I wasn't expecting that?? Peter
  8. M31 The Andromeda Galaxy

    Beautiful image
  9. insight-astronomy-photographer-year

    Congratulations, well deserved. Peter
  10. An amazing Saturn with ASI 290!

    Superb image, well done. The 290 gives a smoother image perhaps as well. Peter
  11. Witch's Broom

    NGC6960 - The Witch's Broom nebula. So many stars almost swamp the nebula. 52 Cygnii is very bloated. ED80 and ST2000XCM OSC camera - 15 x 5 min subs Peter
  12. A quick Triffid M20

    Scudding clouds and light pollution hampered progress last night, but I managed to get a half decent image of M20 the Triffid nebula. ED80 and OSC ST2000XCM camera, only 6 x 5 mins subs. Cropped to remove worst of the gradient. Peter
  13. M20 Trifid nebula from Sussex

    Hi Carole A very nice image. It's low an in the light pollution from my part of Sussex. Peter
  14. Saturn (LRGB) 12 July 2017 - Good seeing

    Hi Geof Great image from the UK. Peter
  15. Saturn 6th July

    This will probably be my last image of Saturn this year. Conditions are not good enough from the UK to warrant repetitive imaging. I'm going to set up for deep sky imaging now.......... Regards Peter
