    I think I need to get myself one of these... It looks great!
  2. Hi there gang, I've been asked as part of a committee member of my local astronomy group to see if we can purchase some large scale educational posters to hang on our walls for showing guests and the public a more in depth look into some of the constructs of our solar system. Does anyone have any experience with also purchasing similar posters for their own group or maybe even yourself? We're mainly looking into firstly a large educational poster of The Moon, The Sun and maybe the structure of the Solar system. I have seen a few online but not with the ability to be laminated when purchased. Ideally A1 or maybe A2 and it would help if it was laminated as they could last grubby hands. Here's an example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Earths-Moon-tubed-NG-PSP602276-Reference/dp/0792280946 Thanks, Tom
  3. I've just re-uploaded my first astrophotography YouTube video. Thanks to people pointing out the issues and now we've got a more refined video for you all. Please let me know on what to improve if you could :)

      Nice video! I have to say my total fav part was the part about your Kick butt power supply you made. It’s huge i have to say, but it gets the job done, and making it out of a toolbox, so darn neatly, was BRILLIANT!!.

       love that power supply!

  4. It's time to start a YouTube channel. I've been running a YouTube channel about video gaming for a few years now and I have always had the urge to start making videos about my adventures with my astrophotography hobby. So I've finally bitten the bullet and given it a go and uploaded my first video, lets see how this goes.

    First Filter?

    How about a CLS filter as a clip in, then an actual filter such as H-alpha or Oiii as a 2inch ringed one? Or would you not need a CLS when using a H-alpha?

    First Filter?

    This looks incredible... Was this the one with the 12nm Oii clip in filter? Iam super impressed with this. Thank you so much for the help

    First Filter?

    Is there a limit to how many filter you can use at once? Or generally it's not best to use them in combination? I am new to the filter techniques

    Do you have anymore examples of photos taken with a that filter with this setup mate? Looks like a great picture! Thanks for the advice!

    First Filter?

    I have been doing AP for nearly 2 years now and I've not purchased any filters. I've situated within the dark skies of Suffolk and I'm curious, if I was to purchase a filter for my optical train, which one would you guys recommend? I mainly capture DSO's so that's a bonus. I have an IR modded Canon 1000D but it has some dust on the sensor and so I've not been using that one recently, but instead I've been using my unmodded Canon 1000D. Any thoughts? I don't really want to break the bank but I'm curious what would improve my results best? Cheers!

    I've got one of these scopes on the way (Thanks to John) and I'm looking forward to seeing sights like this! Nice upload!

    @Patbloke what mount do you plan to have holding this scope?

    First time viewing

    That's lovely looking dob! You will have many years of viewing pleasure with that. I agree that after a hard days work, going out in the cold and peering into the dark night sky is a wonderful feeling. You need to wait a few months to get a glimpse of M42, M45 and M31. Get your wife out at the scope for those and maybe she will understand and join you in your hobby! It's lovely seeing these things, but it's even nicer to show someone who's never seen them before!

    This is a great list to get started with. I thank you kindly!

    An application to help learning star names

    I didn't mention it in the original post but I mean to only learn the stars included in the constellations, many of the stars around them I'm going to ignore I reckon.

    Good thought. I may after all put my Computer Game Design degree in use after all XD Hmm I don't have one of these, this definitely will help, thanks mate.
