  1. Taken with a Celestron C14 pier mounted on a CGE (old) and QHY5L-II M @ 30fps 1280x960 23 Panels in total Stacked in AutoStakkert! 3, stitched in ICE and processed in PI and PS Could have done more sharpening but I felt like it'll be too unnatural, especially up close. Final PNG came out at 8272x4108 or 33.9MP CC is welcome Matt
  2. Is there actually any difference in sensitivity between a modded 60D and a 60Da?
  3. Baader MPCC MkIII since the Skywatcher one causes reflections on very bright targets such as the horsehead
  4. Sod's law, I've just bought a 60D from ebay for £300 with a CLS-CCD filter, but thanks either way
  5. Apart from the pro batteries, I'll be controlling the camera using APT
  6. That's what I was thinking, I actually went ahead and bought the 60D so we'll see.
  7. I'm just wondering if the price difference is justifiable between either waiting for a 600d or going for the 60d now, especially in terms of noise difference
  8. Sorry yes I mean those two but both modified for astro. And when I say 60D I mean one that's been modified, not the 60Da by canon themselves
  9. I've got enough money to spend on a new camera which is going to be astro modified. I just don't know if I should wait and get a 600Da and get one for about £225 or buy a 60D that's been modded right now for £300 with a CLS-CCD filter included with it?
  10. Looking for one at about £200 but open to offers
  11. M45 - The Pleiades 50*180s 2.5 Hours Intergration Nikon D5300, 130PDS, HEQ5 Pro Processed in Pixinsight
  12. Had my first go at processing some data from the Liverpool telescope, and what better way than to start with the M1 Crab Nebula Processed in Pixinsight, combining Ha with RGB data and following Warren Keller's workflow
  13. Literally just got one, but thanks for asking!
