    Live rocket launch

    Not the most exciting launch, camera was out of focus and no 1st stage landing. I guess we're getting a bit blasé about all this.

    The EQ3 DSO Challenge

    Crescent Nebula from Saturday night, 60 x 45 seconds ISO 1600 plus bias and darks. Stacked in DSS and stretched in GIMP and PS express. I have flats to add so will reprocess and see if there's any improvement.

    Plans for tonight?

    I often think this but get dragged back to trying to improve on previous targets.

    Sky Watcher 150p

    I use a screw in adapter onto the canon t Ring with a 6mm eyepiece in it, drop it into a 2 x Barlow then onto the scope where the eyepiece would go. All a bit long and focus difficult, but managed this recently.

    Shame about the coverage for the landing, think we were spoiled by Falcon Heavy double landing.

    Sky Watcher 150p

    I use my canon 1100d on 150p and have got loads of images (nothing like the beautiful images on here with more suitable equipment but to me, I love them). Camera is attached with a t ring adapter at prime focus for deep sky stuff. I reach focus winding in to about 1 finger width of all the way in. Then I fine tune focus on a bright star using a bahtinov mask. For lunar imaging I use a 2 x Barlow. Here's a picture of about where I reach focus. Hope this helps.

    Whale & Hockey Stick Galaxies

    This is beautiful. It's another one of those images that I love to zoom in and try and count the small fuzzies in there. Love it. Got about 30 I think.
