  1. Thank you Adam. It all began with this thread, and help and advice from people like you.
  2. I guess I was in a rush to share it
  3. okay, I seem to have a mistake .... ops, actually, major ops I copy pasted the time from my Facebook and it seems I got them from the wrong picture. Am sooooo embarrassed.
  4. Don't say that .... we're coming up on the "I can't image because there is too much sand in the air"
  5. I guess you can blame an f/5 scope and a very sensitive CMOS camera for that :p
  6. Hi, Would you be willing to ship to Jordan? Of course I would cover the extra cost for shipping.
  7. I believe this is my absolute favourite image I have taken so far! I never thought I would enjoy HaRGB this much! NOTE: My apologies, I had to correct the exposure times. They original ones were taken from a test I did on the image before I started working on it. OPS Telescope: Skywatcher 130PDS Mount: Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro Camera: QHY 163M Filters: Ha + R + G + B Total integration time: 14 hours 15 minutes Exposure: Ha: 32 X 512 sec Red: 91 X 128 sec Green: 91 X 128 sec Blue 91 X 128 sec

  11. I reprocessed the image in the Hubble palette. I still can't decide which I like more! Each has it's own personality. Naturally, all the exposure times are the same as above.
  12. Hi All, Its been a while since I've posted anything. Here is my new version of the Orion Nebula. Hope you like it.

  13. Hi All, I find myself in a very weird place. I seem to have misplaced the knobs that hold the vixen bar in place onto the puck. Anyone have any idea where I can get them? I tried using regular workshop screws, but the vixen bar keeps slipping. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Fakhri PS I have attached a picture of them
