  1. Thank you and very true, if it gets folks interested then great
  2. Thanks everyone, even sky at night are in on it... They had a poster with all the names on. There's some corkers, I'm just happy with full moon
  3. I'm not sure where all these odd names for the full moon are coming from? Apparently last night was a worm moon??? Regardless happy first day of spring everyone...here's my moon from last night Taken with an altair 72EDF Deluxe, GPCAM 290c and 0.5x reducer.
  4. Postage will be extra, but can get a price online
  5. Hello , I'm selling my Sesto senso robotic focuser (RRP £329) This has been fitted to my scope once and comes with original box, all the required leads, usb drive with software and all the required bits and bobs for different scopes. Selling as there's a vibration on my scope focuser and it seems that the Sesto isn't the best fit for my requirements. UK only and postage will probably be no more than £10 with royal mail (special delivery, covered up to £500)
  6. Decided to restack and rework it
  7. Took this over the last couple of nights with the new primaluce gear that i got on Friday . Pleasantly surprised with the airy72ed scope, on paper it doesn't have as good glass as my Altair 72 ....but I actually feel the image quality is higher. I need to do more comparisons anyway. Either way super pleased with how this one turned out And thats a wrap 252 minutes on the cone nebula area PrimaLuce 72 Airy Scope, 1x flattener, Altair Hypercam 183C ProTec, Primaluce Eagle , HEQ5 pro
  8. Primaluce airy 72, flattener, scope rings , 60mm guidescope with rings, vixen bar, psu for eagle
  9. That's the plan eventually ! I found focusing manually with the Ha filter difficult....so I've got a Sesto senso for my birthday (in less than a month) then I hope I'll be able to focus easier and make use of those filters! Cant wait. Thanks for the good feedback also
  10. Thanks so much David . This was a challenging target for me as really I am still a beginner compared to some folks on here for example, it was only on my latest session on the jelly fish (14th Feb) that I carried out a meridian flip for the first time
  11. It's a different process, this time I focused on the jelly fish nebula itself and not the rest per se. I didn't want to 'overcook' it this time whereas in the previous version I felt I did to keep the area on the left. Everything is a balance...im quite happy with my latest and final version
  12. Yep! Just to increase the SNR. More darks and flats didn't help the previous version
  13. Putting this jellyfish back in the pond now! had enough for this season, but its been a useful learning tool! IC443 - The jellyfish nebula. A Supernova remnant in the constellation of Gemini. 143x120s. Altair Astro 72EDF Deluxe, 0.8x reducer, Hypercam 183c Pro Tec, HEQ5 pro. Stacked and processed in Astro Pixel Processor, with some hefty processing in Photoshop too. This one has been a pita to me ...I so wanted to call it finished but couldn't leave it alone. Finally happy with this version now!
