    orion nebula

    Took this last night in a rare beak in the clouds, still a work in progress and the moon was close. it was also a bit of an experiment on how my L pro max filter would help with moonlight, the answer is...quite well actually! the rest of the moon glare was mopped up in astro pixel processor. 55x60s, flats, darks and bad pixel map applied. stacked and processed in APP and final touch up in PS. Still a work in progress and i'll add more data as and when i can

  6. Happy new year everyone...i never thought we would see the end of those clouds, however last night presented itself a small window to get some imaging done. It was a good night for me as i've finally got my set up to work remotely and i'm still getting over a horrendous cold/flu (so it was nice to be able to image from my lounge in the warmth) Anyway this is 50x120s, darks and flats applied. Stacked and processed in astro pixel processor and final touch up in photoshop. Equipment used: Altair 72edf deluxe, 0.8x reducer, hypercam 183c Pro Tec, 60mm guide scope with altair 290c camera, Skytech L Pro Max filter and a HEQ5 pro (rowan modded)

    Rosette RGB - first image of 2019 for me!

  8. £130 Ono ! Will calculate postage when sale agreed but I can't see it being more than £10 with royal mail Stellarmate imaging astrophotography computer. Based on raspberry pi . Comes with upgraded 32gb card rather than the standard 16gb. Included in box is hdmi cable and usb cable with power switch. This was an early Christmas present but is turning into a project I just don't have the time for. Works with anything that has an indi driver. https://www.stellarmate.com It's like the zwo ASI air ...but can be used with other equipment including zwo. Please note if you have Altair cameras the driver is still in development.

    M45 The Pleiades

    Spent a weekend in deepest darkest yorkshire!! Managed to get this 22 x 120s, darks and flats applied. Stacked in DSS and edited in Photoshop. This is one of my all time favourite targets. It's a bit glow-y due to the sheer amount of dew in the air, it was overwhelming my dew straps.
  15. Sorted now, got my hands on a 7nm ha and 8.5nm oiii
  16. Please get in touch if you have one for sale

    South Birmingham

    Hello! just wondering if anyone is around south brum? I'm still a billy no mates...I quite fancy getting out into the countryside sometimes to do some imaging, but its a bit intimidating when you're on your own. Would love to make a few astro friends around here
  18. Hi I'm selling my beloved scope. Its around 7 months old ish. Has the usual marks on the vixen bar. Comes with aluminium case, 2" 28mm eyepiece, 2" diagonal and 6x30 finder scope. A great scope for beginning astrophotography not bad for visual either. £380 , collection from Birmingham only.
  19. Potentially getting a 7nm Ha and 8.5nm OIII
  20. This is the Elephant Trunk Nebula, though I think it looks more like a Nik Nak. It lies at a distance of about 3000 light years from earth and stars are actively forming in this area. The glow in the bottom left had side of the image is from the Garnet Star, this star is a red supergiant and is also one of the largest and most luminous stars in the milky way! 52x120s with darks and flats Stacked with PI and edited in PS. Altair 72EDF with 0.8x reducer, Altair 60mm miniguider, Heq5 pro, Altair Hypercam 183C Pro
  21. Yep that's right! Bloody love that focuser haha
  22. There's a reason the ed80 is known as a giant killer I was almost in two minds to sell, but hey ho... Need to fund the new scope somehow haha
