  1. Here's some other exposures 3, 3.5 and 5min of the same object done with a slightly different edit to show better nebulosity. As well as a comparison of an image I pulled of the web of Orion B. Just also got funding to buy some narrowband filters and guide cameras for projects next year so hopefully will be lots more images coming soon!
  2. Managed to take these images of some Nebula Around Orion B. This is the first set of deep sky images that I or my colleague martintblack have taken. Slight Blurring due to the fact that we do not ye have either off axis viewing or guide scope capabilities at the universities observatory. The following image was taken with a 3minute exposure on a starlight express CCD with no filtering. Not much has been done to these images in way of processing, just some basic level adjustment, contrast correction and false colouring, just happy to have gotten them in the first place as we have been plagued with cloudy scottish nights. Hopefully many more images to come and of better resolution if we can convince the university to invest in some off axis mounts and guide cameras
  3. I actually already have a scope. Its a Bushnell 4'' reflector that Ive used when the weather has been clear and Ive been away from the light polluting streets of Glasgow. I actually meant my new scope which will hopefully be a 6'' or 8'' Meade Trying atm to get our department to invest in some narrowband filters so I can start doing some image compositing. Also trying to see how feasible it is to write some sub pixel tracking programs, maybe turn it into a lab project for the second semester. -Steve
  4. Cant wait to go up and see Galloway forest for an observing night. been before but not with telescopes...
  5. Hi there, im Steve and I'm studying physics and astronomy at Glasgow university. Pretty much enjoy the astronomy more than the physics tho these days, especially want to start doing some imaging at our universities observatory and maybe on my own scope when(hopefully not if ) I get it that is. -Steve
