  1. Another one from Dorset, this was shot from the garden of the cottage we stayed in. Wanted to do more of an exaggerated edit to this one and may not be to everyone's liking. This was shot with my Nikon D3200 with a 35mm lens. 180 seconds ISO 1600 at F1.8 single image tracked on the sky watcher star adventurer Thanks for looking. Edit: Colours aren't showing as they should on this compressed version, please click on the image to see full. Thanks
  2. I had a go 2 nights before hand but that was without any framing to do with foreground objects. I have found polar alignment so much easier with the polar align app. So yes it was my first proper imaging session with it
  3. Was taken with my Nikon D3200 with a 35mm primed lens at f1.8
  4. I've never seen the Milky Way so clear with the naked eye, I was thrilled. We stayed in a cottage in Symondsbury just above Bridport, I don't think I've seen so many stars at once in my life. Had an extra treat with the meteor shower happening aswell.
  5. Hi Everyone, I just come back from a lovely holiday in dorset under their magnificent dark skies. Took many astro photos and was trying out my new toy, a Skywatcher Star Adventurer. Absolutely love it, easy to use and set up andf it gets amazing results. I just finished editing my first pic and thought to share it with you all. Single 3 Minute Exposure for the stars at ISO 400 @ F1.8 tracked. Foreground was a single 5 Minute exposure at ISO 800 and is therefore quite noisy. All edited in Photoshop and finished and tweaked in Lightroom. Im really pleased with the result, hope you like it and if anyone has any tips or what not please feel free to share. Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the replies, I will be sure to give a lot of them a go when we next have a clear spell of skies. Been cloudy and miserable all week, typical britain
  7. I have looked at a few double stars, my favourite being Albireo. The trouble is I never know what double stars to look at, what's easy what's hard etc. Have you a list of some easy to tough ones for me to try out?
  8. Hi all, It's been a a while since i've been out with my scope and am wanting to. The trouble I'm having is I keep observing the same things nearly every night. I live in a small town with a fair amount of light pollution and I use a Skywatcher explorer 130P. Can I ask you to give me a list of things to try and observer from my garden. It can be anything from planets, double stars, clusters, nebulas etc. Thanks a lot
  9. Amazing set of images there mate. Very nice little lens indeed.
  10. Thank you this worked, I knew I had to put the exe in the same folder as AS but I downloaded a different version which did not include an ffmpeg.exe
  11. brilliant image, I would be very happy if I got such a crisp result
  12. Just a quick one tonight, rough edit and no details like my other images. Stacked in Autostakkert 3 sharpened in IMPPG and finsihing touches with GIMP (no photoshop atm). poor seeing so only 500 frames stacked out of 12,000, not sure if that's a good ratio. Thanks for looking.
  13. Hi everyone, does anyone know how to get Autostakkert and FFMPEG to work together, I used to use them both all the time. I dragged the .mov into autostakkert and ffmpeg took over to convert the mov to avi. Thanks in advance.
  14. Another clear night under the stars, lovely and clear not a cloud in sight. Managed to grab some shots of the milky way over wicken from soham. Only edited one so far because I have an early start in the morning. Wish it came out a bit better, though I did catch a satellite, need to get Photoshop back as editing is horrific at the moment. This shot was edited roughly in Lightroom. I'll leave the RAW file here too if any one wants to have a crack at it, I'll also put another one in which has potential . Hope you like my result. RAW Files: DSC_0128.NEF DSC_0129.NEF
  15. +1 for changing the colour balance in Photoshop, reduce the cyans/increase yellows. Just play around with the colour balance until you're happy with the colour.
