  1. Thanks, ill make sure I change the format next time.
  2. I still don't seem to be able to just add the shot without others having to download it first? Can someone help???
  3. I tried stacking 2, 2 X Barlows after a thread on here suggested it. I'm pleased with the results. Didn't get many frames so there's only about 300 in the final image.
  4. Meryck, thanks for that. I didn't realise you could stack Barlows. Think I may have to try a 3 X. Rich, I'll try that next time. Anything I should be setting differently on Sharpcap or Registax? Steve
  5. These are my 1st goes through my new 200P on the EQ5. SPC 900 and I had a go with PIPP. Processed through Registrar though I'm not convinced I know what I'm doing! Any suggestions for improvement would be appreciated. Venus.bmp
  6. Thanks for the replies. The mount is an EQ5. I've had a few goes with the webcam already which I really enjoyed. I'd like to get a full shot of the moon now. I'll post my attempts when the camera gets here.
  7. So, I've just taken delivery of a Skywatcher 200P and waiting on an EOS 1000 to arrive. I'd like to image something not too hard as a first target just to get an idea. What would you recommends? This is my first time with a DSLR. Thanks, Steve
  8. Hi, I'm at the same stage as you. This shot was taken through my Skywatcher 150P. 1500 frames manually tracked and stacked. I have just got my 200P and I'm waiting for the EQ5 to arrive. I've also just ordered a Canon EOS 1000D so hopefully my images will improve! JUpiter.bmp
  9. Hi, I thought I'd share my very first efforts. I'm using an SPC 880 webcams odded to a 900. I have a Skywatcher 150P on an EQ3-2 mount although I have a 200P on its way. I'd appreciate any comments. Not sure how to post multiple images so I'll put my moon shots in another post. Thanks, Steve JUpiter.bmp
