  1. Hi. Selling my Astronomik 1.25 ccd Filter (12nm). Its in exerllent condition throughout.Just some normal dust specs. Asking £65 including 1st class tracked poatage. Cheers. Mick
  2. Hope you get the O111 filter soon Adam,such detail in these images its boggling(is that a word) Mick.
  3. Its a corker Adam. Just seen your posting,such great wide field images.Which Ha filter do you use? Mick.
  4. Thanks for the comment,fully appreciate it. Mick.
  5. Hi. I aquired this image of IC5146 over two nights,the second night being last night.The skies in East Yorkshire have,nt been kind of late,and i had to wait over two weeks to complete. It was taken using a Altair Astro 102mm Triplet and a Atik 314L+ ccd camera. It is a Ha/RGB image. 12x600 secs for the Ha, 9x600 secs for The Red and Blue,and 6x600 secs for the Green. Calibration was applied althougth i did not use darks. I do like the scope,but even with a Triplet the Blue Bloat of the larger stars still presents itself to some extent. Cheers. Mick.
  6. Wow thats worse than mine,and mine is bad enough.Three weeks and counting till last clear sky. Mick.
  7. Hi. Their is someone interested, just waiting to hear. Will let you know if he wants it or not. Mick.
  8. Hi. Thanks for the enquirey. What you are seeing is the inside of the plastic cap that fits over the end of the 2 inch extension.On it is stamped the number 51(Its a sp cap that i had lying around) misplaced the original. The lens is fine and unmarked. Mick.
  9. Hi. The above Field Flatteners are in exerllent condition.Lenses are very clean and bright. Their are a few light screw marks around the 2 inch Barrel which is to be expected. Asking £56 posted for the Flattener. Asking £49 posted for the X0.8 Reducer. Will split. Cheers. Mick. The Reducer has been (SOLD).
  10. Their are a few things that i can now check from your write up.I have been toying with the idea of moving over to APT,and i think you have just given me a push i needed. As i say everything seems fine apart from not seeing the camera in the list.I know Astrotortilla is quite old now,but when it works it is really good. Thanks for the write up,and the time taken. Mick.
  11. I,m surprised no one is using Astrotortilla!!
  12. Hi. I am using an Atik ccd camera,and their software Artemis.I connect through the star map CDC which is all fine.To platesolve i have been using Astrotilla,which i quite like.However trying to install on a new computer when i open up the Astrotortilla interface box,i dually connect to Ascom,but when i come to the Ascom camera chooser my camera the Atik 314L+ is not there.I must be missing something,but cant seem to overcome this. Any ideas please. Mick.
