  1. Hi folks, I have a Quark Chromosphere and I am very happy with it. I use it in combination with a 80/480 APO. For photography I use the DMK21. Now my question: I want to make pictures of the full globe. A reducer could be the solution. Does anybody use a reducer, the 0.5x Antares for example or this one: http://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p676_TS-Optics-TSRED051-Focal-reducer-0-5x---1-25-inch-filter-thread.html Your opinions would be appreciated. Regards Werner
  2. Great work! A weak and not so well known objekt capturet perfectly!
  3. Very nice, this part of the milky way ist not sooo bright. But you captured it very well!
  4. John, it is better do use the 300 lens. The tails are long and weak, less focal length is better. I captured this comet with 660mm and 200mm. 200 is much more better.
  5. Hi folks, I waked up in the middle of the night and did a look through the window. Wow, clear sky, so I captured Catalina from my balcony with Canon EF 200 and Canon 5D. 23x100s. A globular cluster and some weak galaxies are in the field too: I hoped to get more of the tail. Conditions were good, so I do not know why there is not more to see. Regards Werner
  6. Great work, I captured that too, but your result is much more better!
  7. Thank you for your nice comments! Oh 38 years, I think these will stay my best pictures of this forever.
  8. Overall scale is 93'x70'. I used the MoravianG2-8300Fw.
  9. Great work, I know how exhausting it is to do such a big mosaic.
  10. Hi folks, 99% moon at christmas. I captured the rising today. Wish you all a merry christmas. And some more: Regards Werner
  11. Thank you for your comments! I hope I will get the chance to present you further results. I will never reach the level I can realise with my 10" newtonian. But I can touch it a little.....
  12. Very nice, how did you combine Halpha wiht RGB? I think this could explain the green.
  13. Hi folks, for doing good astrophotography I always have to leave my home and go to places with better conditions. My favorite place is not far away, but I have to transport all the equipment. I have a 10" newtonian, to transport it is not really a simple thing. So I realised a little dream and I am the owner of a TeleVue 127 now. Some days ago I had my first light. My target were some faint galaxies in constellation Aries. Only luminance (52x600s), no flats. I have to correct a small tilting, then it should be okay and I can start with the full programm. This is a 100% crop: Some annotation: http://www.starrymetalnights.at/Bilder/NGC680_group_L_Annotated.jpg Regards Werner
  14. Thanx! Pay attention to the bottom left corner. You can see there a little blue ball. This is NGC 1514, a planetary nebula.
  15. Very nice! You can see a lot of the faint stuff arround. And colours are nice too!
  16. Hi folks, after a very long time of abstinence I am back here. Motivation for astrophotography is not always the same. I did nothing in months. But now my love for astronomy is back. I bought a new telescope (TeleVue 127) and started with a session for two nights with the Canon EF 200LII. I tried to capture a very faint object, IC 360. Between Plejades, Hyades and California Nebula there is a lot of dust. My picture shows a part of it. Done with Moravian G2-8300FW, 35x600s L and 15x300s for every channel in RGB. Regards Werner
  17. Very interesting, nice results for your 1st attempt! I am flirting with buying a Quark too....
  18. Great idea, love your presentation!
  19. Very nice, I think there is nothing to improve. Great widefiled!
  20. Nice image though you have a strong gradient in it. With PixInsight it could be possible to remove it.
  21. Wow, so many details! And I like the colours too!
  22. Thank you for your nice comments! @laser_jock99, very cool widefield!
