  1. I agree with Adam, the Pillars have come out really well.
  2. Tuesday 17th March, 2015
  3. Seeing the Northern Lights from the Moor near Pateley Bridge. The Geo-mag forecast looked like it might go Kp=7, took a chance and there it was..... I literally said "Wow" on that dark desolate B-road at 1oclock in the morning....
  4. Those inky dark areas on the Ha image are very striking. Have they been teased out in the processing or did your original subs capture them ??
  5. Very nice image Alex. I struggle to get defined spiral arms with this object, but you have caught them a treat.. and with a 150PDS.... marvellous.
  6. Hi David, If Takman (above) does not buy, then put me in the queue.
  7. Not much clear sky action for me in North Yorkshire over the last fortnight due to trips and work. Managed a rather segmented session on the 1st October, and caught two of the classic nebula that are visible at this time of year with the GSO 6" F4 Newtonian with Aplanatic corrector. I do like a gas cloud that actually looks like it's description. Hopefully you can identify which is which !!!! Details: Fish-head. 6"F4 + aplanatic corrx HST 48 x 1min each wavelength. Atik 414ex mono (-20'C) Horsehead 6"F4 + aplanatic corrx Ha-O3 (24x2min Ha, 6x2min O3 ...Atik 414ex mono (-20'C) curtailed as the Sun was coming up !! )
  8. I'll second that, and Olly's pictures always have a 'wow' factor to them.
  9. Great image. I agree with you, clusters of galaxies are fascinating. Possibly the biggest item in the Universe that a backyard astro-photographer can image.
  10. As above, I think it is set for the standard DSLR backfocus distance of 55mm.
  11. Most of my subs show a bit of celestial motion !!!!... Does that count ???
  12. I feel a mosaic developing..... Pickering's Triangle is off to the bottom left, a lovely delicate stucture in Ha. This is an excellent start. Well done.
  13. If not already snapped up....... how much for the QHY163M by itself ???
