  1. Hi. Takahashi fc100dc + Canon 200d. 10x30'. It's a difficult target with moonlight and moving so fast
  2. I saw the comet the night It came close to NGC 2903. It was really amazing watch It move around the galaxy. I took some pictures only as a testimony of the approach. Windy, gusts over 30 km, Moon...
  3. Hi Before bying my fc100dc I used the mount several times with a SV90btv + baader 2” prism + nagler 20, about 5.5 k in total with no issues at all. The gotos were smooth and acurate. The biggest problem you can find It is that It won’t be stable enough when you push magnification. I usually set the mount on the tripod of my eq6-r. With this combination you can go (a bit) over the 5 kilos limit.
  4. Hi After a really boring 2018, the Sun woke up with a lot of activity in this new year. I post several pictures taken between december 31 and january 2. Thanks for looking Lunt 80 + asi 1600 (close ups asi 120 + powermate) Lunt 80 + asi 120 +powermate Takahashi FC100DC+ asi120 + powermate
  5. Good luck. Day off work, nice day with rare good seeing and a lot of activity. Lunt 80 & así 1600. Close Up asi120+powermate Thanks for looking
  6. Beautiful Sun today. Interesting proms in the border although no details in the disk. Lunt 80 + asi1600 Close ups with my QHY178 and powermate 2.5. Quite windy today, I didn´t get the resolution I expected. Anyway I think the pictures are interested enough to be posted.
  7. Just for fun, last year I imaged Júpiter once with my 4.7" refractor. This is what I got Obviously, aperture rules. But you can do interesting things with a small telescopel
  8. Yes. Ten degreees is quite a difference. It´s too bad that we haven´t been lucky so far with the seeing. Yesterday I tried on jupiter. But the jet stream was really strong. I only managed to get this. Regards
  9. Sorry. I think I didn’t explain myself well. I used the 4” to check the seeing, but I took the picture with my 9.25 hd.
  10. With all the main planets well placed for imaging, it's amazing that there's not a single night with good seeing. I've been trying for almost a month, watching the planets with my Little 4" and waiting for a good night to set up my SC. The seeing didn't look too bad yesterday so I decided to try, just to see saturn "dancing" in the screen of my computer. Focusing was a real adventure. Anyway, my first saturn this year.
  11. It's just a matter of patience. This time I took the picture only 10 km from home. My first iss took me almost 100 km away
  12. HI. Lunt 80 + qhy178 + the hottest sun ever... Thanks for looking Regards, Rafa
  13. ...So far this year, cloudy and windy Spain Thanks for your answers
