    I know Dave... But when you are doing a quick 10 min process at 4 in the morning while feeding and burping a baby, this is what you get..

    Orion Rising

    Lol.. Come to my location. You'll 'love' it. 30-40 stars at the max
  5. 1 sec exposure of Orion rising over London, taken with Sony Xperia XZ Premium, I think it captured the smudge of the nebula as well

    Light Pollution Filter

    I've been pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of Optolong's UHC filter. I live in Canary Wharf area in London and this filter enabled me to extend the exposures a lot. The sky background is easy to get rid of as well.. It produces a green cast which is very easy to remove. The image is not great, sorry the collimation is off and the tracking was a hit and miss, but I like the colours in this RGB image.

    No, its a 2 pane image... when i put on a 0.5x reducer on the nosepiece, 3/4th of the sun was there. Guess, I need a bigger chip but they cost £££. Don't want to go the CMOS way because of Newton's rings. Guess I will get a full disc with my guidescope. I will try next time.

    Thanks Pete, Yes, I sorted that out on QHY, but it didn't happen on DMK at all..

    So, I tested my newly acquired DMK41 mono cam, both with and without a nosepiece reducer. What a difference from QHY 5LII- no Newton's rings. Easy focusing, and better frame rate Quark chromosphereTS 60ED on iOptron SmarteqDMK41AU04.AS

    Yep.. Horrible. I had two options give it up or carry on. Glad I chose the second option.
