    Incidental Objects

    Using Cartes du Ciel, I was just looking around Triangulum to see what was was there. Click on the object, my mount moves to that part of the sky and I took a few Lum subs. This is NGC 973 15 x 60s Subs of L only. C11 at 2800mm FL f/10. ZWO ASI 183mm Pro. Astrodon 1.25" E-Series L filter. Mesu 200 mount.

    Rosette Nebula and NGC 2244

    Thanks you TereqPhoto. I agree, I think the Rosette is a beautiful nebula. I hope you have better luck in the future.

    Rosette Nebula and NGC 2244

    Thanks I have been waiting to image this since earlier in the year. The Rosette is too big to fit in FOV of my C11 with Hyperstar. So, I purchased the TS 65EQ Quad. Now I can comfortably image the Rosette and other objects such as M45 without stitching panels together

  7. Removed as no use if poor visible East/West horizon.

    Securing Obs roof from inside

    I use 4 Turnbuckles, one for each corner of a 10ft x 8ft roof. No worries yet. And yes, we have had a few storms here.
  9. I have the Mesu 200. Its permanently mounted in my ror shed. I love it. Because the mount can take the weight, I have a C11 and a TS 65EQ Quad with EFW3 filterwheel, OAG, cameras. About 20Kg in total. PHD2 guides great. It makes imaging a dream. My only real problem is clouds !!

    Bad timing

    1 out of 3 is not too bad. Nice photo too. Pity the clouds rolled in but at least you had a taster. Nice report too
  11. Very nicely done. I must try this target myself one day. I have the same chip but on the ZWO model. I agree, the small pixels do bring out some great detail.
  12. Taken using TS Optics 65/420 Quad, ZWO ASI183mm Pro camera. Baarder Fast Ha/OIII/SII filters. ( RGB respectively) Processed in Pixinsight. 40 x 120s each channel (Ha/OIII/SII) About 4 hours. Thanks for looking.
  13. Taken 7th Oct 18 from my garden observatory. 40 x 120s Astrodon 1.25" Gen II E-Series Filters. ZWO ASI183mm Pro camera on Celsetron C11 and Mesu 200 mount. Guided using Lodestar X2, and ZWO OAG. ATIK EFW3 with 2" to 1.25" adapters. Processed in Pixinsight. Slightly cropped. Thanks for looking.
  14. Mods, please move this post if i have posted in wrong area. Thanks. Not sure if this has been posted here before but following a post from someone else here on SGL Friday, I watched their posted video link then ran into this. I found it fascinating and very informative. The lecturer is also very good at presenting...I never fell asleep once This is the latest I am aware of from Gaia's data. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOJ1XmbSKhM Enjoy

    Cracking night tonight !

    Sounds like you are having a great night there John. Enjoy! Here, I'm waiting for the skies to clear here. Forecast is to clear up within the hour. Then I will be, hopefully, imaging Rosette Nebula.in Narrowband.
