  1. Thanks. Looks promising. Will give it a go.
  2. Very nice Martin. I thought I would ask questions here vs. CN since this is a dedicated thread. What GUI framework are you using in Python to develop the UI? Python is incredibly easy to write in and most of my photometry scripts are in Python but I have not found a good GUI framework yet for rapid development.
  3. Thanks Martin. Very well researched and a very interesting read.
  4. Martin, Great capture and write up. I have tried observing this ARP from my location but the bridge has proved elusive. Needs darker skies. Another reason I enjoy your captures. -Hiten
  5. All Celestron C6 SCTs are Hyperstar compatible even though it does not say 'Fastar'.
  6. I have found that software to be very promising but the stacking is not robust enough yet. Needs a few more development iterations. This is not a ding on the SW. Given the variety of cameras supported it takes a lot of testing and refinement to make it robust. Just the nature of the beast.

    EAA - Atik Infinity Color

    All images from a live observing/imaging session at the scope with the Atik Infinity Color Camera and software. No post processing. Evolution C8@f3.7 and AT72ED @ f4.5 (on the Evolution mount)
  8. Alex, very nice images. I have been toying with the idea of a C8 HS for a while. But have been debating the right camera. The 825 sensor produces great images but due to the under-sampling smaller objects are challenging. I have also been investigating the ASI1600MM. Should be a very good fit wrt sampling. The 3.75 micron pixels provide an almost perfect 1.84"/pixel sampling which means you can zoom in on the acquired image and view smaller objects at almost the same detail as a Ultrastar at ~750mm FL. Plus the field of view covers a huge 2.4 deg FoV. But the one downside is that the EAA software is not as good as SLL. Should do well for imaging though.
  9. Surreal landscapes of gas and dust. All images taken with a SCT 8" at f3.3, a Ultrastar Mono and SX825 cameras and Orion 7nm H Alpha filter. All images from a live observing session with no post processing.
