  1. Superb 1st light, what a cracking image!
  2. I also have a C9.25 and the views can be at first glance underwhelming, even of the brighter DSO's. Dark skies are obviously the best help, but filters are can improve most nebula's. Expectation is another thing that can dampen the views, even the mighty Orion nebula looks nothing like the photos. The more time you spend observing an object, the more you see. As other have said, i also do not use my focal reducer much, there are not many objects you need it for.
  3. Looks very good on my Laptop, a beautifully peaceful scene!
  4. Its been a while since i switched to Autostakkert, so my memories of Registax is a little blurry. Are you using alignment "dots" for your alignment or boxes?
  5. Some decent detail visible there, how were the seeing conditions?
  6. Fingers crossed for the cloud/weather, just some decent gaps please!
  7. Lovely fine details visible there.
  8. Nice to get something especially this time of the year.
  9. Lovely set of images, i can not remember the last time i saw a filament.
  10. Some very detail visible there.
  11. Definitely the number one imaging target for the next couple of months, going to be long, long imaging runs to try and capture more than just a disc. Manged the Polar cap during some fine seeing a couple of years back.
  12. Looked really nice earlier, despite the best efforts of murk trying to obscure it.
  13. A very nice "family" gathering despite the focus.
  14. Excellent images as always Avani, been thinking about your images for the last couple of weeks, since you posted them. The Polar region is definitely visible, I have managed to capture that once myself. As for the other "markings" I guess time will tell. Have thought about trying to capture the rings?
  15. I booked it off a while back. Let's hope the weather is kind, or at least some decent gaps in the clouds. I was going to try and find somewhere where I could image it all the way down to the horizon, not sure I bother now though.
  16. Cant imagine the people selling the policies would have a clue about the terms and conditions. Its all about commission and nothing else unfortunately. Well done to you for taking the time to check it for yourself.
