  1. I have the same problem . Try using an image converter as it worked for me!
  2. Am I the only one who still hasn't got it yet?
  3. Looks like I'll have to keep the LP. Not the end of the world really as it is cropped out mostly in my reprocess. Thanks for all the advice though JR
  4. ATM I have no money for pixinsight . Are there any other methods that might be doable in gimp?
  5. Thanks! As I am a complete newbie to processing, please could you tell me how you removed the light pollution?
  6. Link to a (in my opinion) much better reprocess https://www.astrobin.com/259915/
  7. Thanks! I was on holiday near the kielder forest. Truly amazing skies...
  8. Here is my first proper go at milky way imaging using my new star adventurer. 6 x 180sec at ISO 1600. Your processing advice would be greatly appreciated as I have only done basic stretching. Thanks in advance
  9. The detail and colour captured is fantastic but maybe a tad over processed? Nice image though
  10. Read the response in full and has worked hard to reduce the negative effects of light pollution. In 2014, the Government published a policy update, ‘Artificial Light in the Environment’, highlighting the steps that have been taken to reduce artificial light pollution. The update is available to view at:www.gov.uk/government/publications/artificial-light-in-the-environment-policy-update. Defra will continue to work with other Departments to enable the impact of outdoor artificial lighting to be suitably considered in future relevant Government
  11. Thanks for the idea about the eq6 tripod. Will probably use one as it is fairly cheap but VERY sturdy. My only concern is that it may not be portable enough for easy transportation.
  12. That looks a lovely tripod! However, I was wondering if it is possible to use anything cheaper (probably not as you get what you pay for).
  13. Hi guys. I am thinking of buying a SW star adventurer and am wondering if anyone can recommend a tripod to use with it. I would be using it with lenses up to 200mm in focal length. Ideally it would be as cheap as possible as I am on a tight budget. Thanks in advance
  14. How about a c11? Quite a few people on here use them and focal length is fairly long http://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/celestron-c11-xlt-optical-tube-assembly.html
  15. I couldn't see it either, despite the fact that I was using a 200mm reflector and I KNEW I was in the right place!
