  1. Here's M42 from last night, whilst watching a film (Rita Sue and Bob Too) i paused it and had a look outside the seeing was 7/10 :shock: so off went the film and i frantically setup the Mount and ED80. Observed Orion for a while then got some frames for stacking 28x30, my intention was to get 30x 30secs and 30 x 8 secs but alas the clouds came rolling in. Really pleased with the image although i think i can get some more out of the RAW files later. Hope u like. James
  2. I setup the same as Russ and Rog it's quick n easy but Drift Alignment has to be the Best esp taking images of Dso's?..

  4. When using the Canon DSLR i use a combination of slightly over exposed images and just under exposed images with the Moon, i find i get a perfect exposure after the resulting Stack. Looks Fab anyway Greg! James

    Hello Paul, Welcome to the Forum! Hope you enjoy it here James
  15. The objects seems a little sharper than the stars so it leads me to believe it could be an artifact during stacking or hardware? The images are Raw mate no stacking etc etc just cropped for the Animation.. Just been looking at the frames up close there is deff another object/whatever there and also a hint of one more, iam at a loss what they are i would put them down to artifacts but like i said there not there from other images on the same night so Temps etc etc were the same.. James
  16. I'll go and Check mate, no feedback from anywhere else yet as such.. Interesting there's other objects can't see it being artifacts though as there are none on the images taken the same evening and around the same time too.. Puzzled lol. Thanks James
  17. Yep it Works just done my Laptops Starry Night
  18. Your Welcome Doug, it was a toughie but you did superbly capturing as much as you did.. James
