  1. Hi Alan. I'm not sure how your skill set in working with metal is, but mine is none! To be honest it does depend a lot on size, etc. I f you have good drawings then it almost sounds cheaper to rebuild the structure, than to move a large shipping container if you were to move? I know I have kept my drawings with all measurements, so if I where to move location I could order the timber pre cut at what I would suspect will be a lower price than to hire a crane operator and a truck to relocate a container. It would result in some more work, but I don't relocate so often that it's a big / likely issue. I'm sure it could be done, but not 100% sure how much there is to gain? Good luck on your research / desition, Magnus.
  2. MonkeyHead NGC-2174 Ha

    From the album Observatory 17b

    Camera is ZWO asi 1600mm-c, with Baader Ha filter. All subs is @Unity and offset 21 cooled to -30c 64x 5min lights (Ha) = 5hours 20min Ha 200 biases 60x 5min darks Remotely imaged on the night from 13th to 14th of February 2017
  3. Thanks for the comments Olly an Paddy, and the likes! I'm happy that you liked it
  4. So this is the Monkey Head nebula in Ha. Imaged with the asi 1600mm-c @-30C 64x 300sec, Gain 139, Offset 21 I'm gathering O3 as we speak, but liked the mono version too. Pretty happy with it at the moment, but feel free to comment with tips or feedback
  5. California NGC-1499 (H)SsynH

    From the album Observatory 17b

    Camera is Zwo Asi 1600mm-c, with Baader Ha and S2 filter. All subs is @Unity and offset 21 cooled to -30c 70x 2min lights (Ha) 26x 5min lights (Ha) = 4.5 hours Ha 15x 5min lights (S2) = 1h 15min S2 200 biases 16x 2min darks 9x 5min darks Remotely imaged on the night from 7th to 8th of January 2017 (Ha) and 21th of January (S2)

  7. I'm not sure what you can tell from this? but here are Menkib in Ha and S2 (don't have O3). Setup is identical for both, subs are 5min @Unity with offset 21. The stacked images is 4.5 hour Ha and ~1.5 hour S2 Ha S2 The reflection is not showing a lot in Ha ,but in S2 it's very clear! Scope is Equinox 80, with SkyWatcher non reducing Field Flattener and Baader NB filters. Please share what this means.
  8. If that is your experiments with a guidecam first time processing mono, then I'm looking forward for things to come
  9. One thing to note about the INDI drivers is that they are sorted in to groups like focusers, ccd's, telescopes (mounts) and several more. All of these groups is implemented as super classes with all the generic features of the devices as virtual functions. So the super class for focusers will have all the functions for initialization, connect and everything to generate the gui an listen for button clicks etc. For a focuser there will also be functions for setting focus in / out and focus for x milliseconds. As there are no super class for framing hw, your best bet is to make it as a aux device. Aux devices in indi is the most basic devices, but you have all you need to add the gui buttons and text / number inputs, and you have the timerhit function that is the event loop for the device. One of my INDI drivers is an aux device, so it might give some insight, or make everything a lot more confusing.... https://github.com/magnue/indi_wiringpi_gpio/blob/master/README.md
  10. It's this sort of thing, I think. On a different scale. http://www.rpdms.com/satillusion/
  11. Thanks Barry When it comes to saturation I have a tendency to under saturate, to avoid my tendency to over saturate... I should probably do all the mono processing first, leave it over night and come back to work with colors. If not everything looks highly saturated. Guess I vill learn with time
  12. Thanks Sara! That did add something quite nice At 100% the effect was too much, but soft light layer at 50% seamed to to the the trick.
  13. Sorry about my falsy advertised California in Ha, O3
  14. That's prove enough for me! Filters are in correct position and working, just hardly any O3 in California
  15. Just thought I should add that there where some filter mixup.. I thought I had gotten to the bottom of this before posting, but looks like there are no O3 in the pictures I posted. Only Ha and S2. Oh well, everyone was new to filters at some point
