    orion nebula

    Very good capture indeed,especially as the Moon is playing its usual havoc. Nice detail,and you have have kept the colours slightly muted,which i like. Mick.

    IC443 a bit of Jelly Fish

    Hi. Been clouded most nights recently,but a clear patch opened up on a very windy night. I feared for my obsy roof as i opened it,but took a chance. Anyway managed a few subs with my DSLR before cloud returned again,and put paid to the session. Using my ED 72 and my canon 1000D i took about 12 450 secs at ISO 800. I did calibrate using Bias and Darks. As i say,a bit of the Jelly Fish did show up + a very bright Eta Geminorum. Cheers. Mick.

    Imaged this the other night with my usual gear. It is the sum of 30 600 secs subs,fully calibrated with darks flats and bias frames. It was a narrowband image consisting of both H-Alpha and Oxy111 filters. Using two scopes i imaged with both filters at the same time,and alighned in software. The scopes had different FOV and had to crop a little. Cheers. Mick.

    Thanks for all the input guys,it was really helpful. In the end i did a full system recovery,and re-installed windows.By doing that it has cured the problem. It was not as drastic as it may seem,as i only use this for the obsy. Just re-installed my software and drivers and i,m away again. Was i bit worried at first though. Mick.
