  1. Just got back its a nice event met lots of folk very friendly loads to talk about...had a great time will go next year
  2. oozing quality...such a tight and crisp image
  3. Lovely job on this.... I like the framing on this with those smaller galaxies very nicely placed.
  4. The dark dust lane is coming through nicely. As you say more subs will improve on that and even show the blue reflection around the outer edges......really nice shot there
  5. thank you Paddy, Paul...cant wait for some longer darker nights
  6. a real stunner....I've yet to use my A7s on my scope...think I might give it a go after seeing this
  7. welcome to the forum
  8. Thank you Rodd, Yep had to wait a few times before. Very difficult to know how to process the blacks as everyone's monitors are calibrated differently
  9. Fingers crossed you get the clear skies on those dates. I do get good views of Antares from here and have thought about trying it. But with its fleeting fly-by across the horizon I've always thought about going to a better location to image it....never got around to it. Your image has really made think hard about giving it a go from here. It would be interesting to do an overlay from an image from further South and compare how much atmospheric refraction you have in yours. Peter
  10. For some reason I had this in my head it was imaged outside the UK. This makes it even more remarkable, a superb achievement from your location. How long is it image-able (if that's even a word) for you during an evening?
  11. Yeah I know anything after a tweak or clean I tend to call a 'test' image.....I've spent some time designing a modified Dall Kirkham. It will be a 250mm, carbon truss design fully corrected across a 50mm field. Ill let you know how it goes.
  12. great scale super shot
  13. nice to see it all in one shot. Lovely image
  14. No Not at all they were just grubby....just me being over the top...they really only needed a wash but I ended up having them coated while they were out the scope.... all that time left out in the observatory with high humidity I would periodically run the dehumidifier but not often enough it would seem.
  15. one of my favourite parts of the sky....looking good
