  1. Wow, there's a lot going on there. Looks like the mod was worth it!
  2. Not sure what the flashes are but it's a great image with plenty of detail considering the 'short' sub length.
  3. That's pretty cool. I missed these this year. Bring on the next lot!
  4. Looks great. Would love to know how you 'dragged' it out
  5. As Peter says the Baader film will be your best bet. You can easily cut two pieces and make 'covers' for each end of your binos. Depending on their size you may be able to utilise toilet roll tubes as well. Just be careful with finger prints on the film.
  6. Personally I use a home made Y mask and focus on a bright star. Live view can help immensely. You could make a B mask but you may find it fiddly to construct with the correct spacing etc. you could combine a mask with software to absolutely nail your focus.
  7. TBH unless your going to buy a clear filter that is of equal optical quality to your lenses I wouldn't bother. I'm always changing lenses 'in the field' and occasionally need to clean my sensor because of a dust bunny.
  8. Id say you have achieved that nicely.
  9. That tail is starting to show through very nicely.
  10. I haven't seen the rosette done like that before. I like it! Far be it for me to critique but gave you tried seein how it would look with a bit more contrast?
  11. Great image. I had a go last night as well but am not holding out much hope for the results. It shows up really well at 35mm as well.
  12. Look promising. I think the gopro editing software can remove the fish eye. I'm pretty certain it csn do it for video but am happy to be proved wrong.
  13. Looks promising. Can't offer any help other than to ask what focal length did you use?
  14. Any object apart from the brightest ones are going to be hard without a tracking EQ mount. Not impossible but you have to tailor your expectations to suit. The rosette is a fairly large and IMO challenging target, I've managed to capture it (albeit faintly) with a Nikon so it's not impossible. My best advice is to give it a bash and experiment.
  15. Well maybe you should?
