  1. Prom detail is gorgeous in these, all great images.
  2. Thanks for this all my gear been stowed away due to remodeling, nice to see the video.
  3. Thanks, did not know that. Always take glasses off, will try with glasses on if sun pops back out.
  4. Luminos 15mm / 82 deg. Dumb question perhaps but adjuster ring to raise or lower eye cup, is purpose to just block reflections or also fine focus? My good eye is not great but this morning viewing prom with pst seemed focus changed a bit from highest position to lowest. Thanks!
  5. Really does pay to be below average astro imager. Only recently joined after gathering my best dso data few months ago so only need to reload the one lost image. Not bad for free premium upgrade! Now im going to upload all kinds of crazy poor effort stuff.
  6. Nice prom and filaments capture! ISS crossing sun tomorrow morning from my yard. Unfortunately 100% cloud cover.
  7. Terrific capture, can certainly see rotation. Well done.
  8. Beautiful captures and processing, always look forward to your closeups. Know its wrong, but like to see huge smiley face or crop circle carved in Sinus Iridum. Bit of a hike with good number passes.
  9. Kaboom! Thank you wind storm, few minutes ago neighbors 70 ft ash tree came crashing down. Base has to be 7 ft wide. Beatles killed it nearly 3 years ago, ever since been hoping they'd chop it down. Fell harmlessly towards woods. This opens up entire new swath of space to the South for me. Improves everything, planets, solar, lunar, dso's. So great !
  10. As mentioned good night for getting spacing - kit in working order. Wish I had clear night coming up, have flattener spacing tests to do.
  11. For sale or swap, Atik Infinity color with Japanese 35mm f1.9 mini lens / comet hunter. I've used the Atik on all of my scopes for imaging and EEVA, also used mini 35mm lens with Atik for viewing night sky and bird feeder watching. Fully adjustable beautiful little lens. The drivers and Infinity software are available via website download. Infinity software is flexible with live stacking option, fully adjustable color offsets, saves individual files as fits, save stack as fits or tiff plus replay and many other options. Below is example of mini 35mm lens with Atik Infinity, only have soft yellow light, its night / dog is brown and black so he doesn't really pop. A red Cardinal is brilliantly red in daylight as is a blue Blue Jay, least gives you idea of chip condition. Full disclosure A. 12v cord not included, sorry need it for new camera. Will take any normal astro 12v cord specs on website. B. Original outlet cord included works but is little loose, its a defect of cord itself, don't have same issue with 12v cord. If position cord on top wont have any worries of it falling out or as mentioned use different 12v or outlet cord. C. Mounted plastic GoPro accessory attachment to the rear for tripod use, doesn't weigh anything. Can heat up with hair dryer and remove if so inclined. Location Wisconsin USA. Price $349 plus shipping. Swap - meteorites similar value, fossils similar value, old bottles similar value (unbroken). Thanks for looking.
  12. High hopes of low noise, first cooled cmos. Extra couple usb ports is nice, includes short filter wheel cord. Not intimidating as I imagined it would be. SharpCap which used to working with manages everything for 1600mm. Drops to -20C fast and holds. Moving 174mm to OAG will make finding guide stars so much easier. CS!
  13. Constellation Fever. Worshiped by Babylonians from 2370 bce - 2379 bce. Fever was clerk by trade who lived with his parents until he entered a dance contest and won a trophy. In 2380 his dance was banned by the king and pretty much everyone else.
  14. Gorgeous capture & well balanced / processed. Like sharp details without heavy contrast or blown out areas.
  15. Orion ed80t-cf I use for solar / lunar. Brought it back into dso fold with clear sky last night, but could not acquire OAG stars no matter what. Prism popped out of oag recently so took a look but was intact. Abandoned evening as was getting nowhere fast and temps froze finger tips. A peek inside carbon refractor tells all. A structural support had popped / wedged sideways blocking the oag. Wonder how long its been like that, year or more.. I recently posted a lunar pic from it. The good news is popped it back and secure again. If saddle ring is in right spot and tightened can pop a structural ring loose on these carbon fiber tubes.
