    Saturn At Last

    Hi all, Had some clear patches tonight just as Saturn transitted the gap between the houses opposite. All I can say is wow, even though the seeing was not great and then the wind picked up, all i did for 30 minutes was to keep looking at the wondrous site within the eyepiece. I was using Celestron 130EQ, and used a 30mm, 15mm and 10mm eyepieces, with and without a x2 Barlow lens. Cannot wait to view it again. Cheers, Terry

    Need collimation?

    Thanks for all the good advice. Followed astrobabys instructions. Was nervous at first but took the plunge. Managed not to break anything and stopped when I thought it looked ok. Will do again soon. Thanks again. Terry

    Need collimation?

    Hi all, Thanks for all the great advice given here. Think I will spend Sunday reading and rereading then giving it a go. Terry
  5. Hi, here's a quick shot down the eyepiece, still being very new to this, do the experts here think I need to collimate? Scope is Celestron Astromaster 130. Terry.

    Software for Nikon DSLR

    Hi, I am currently using the 30day trial of BackyardNikon, so far I have found it good for still and for movie captures. I think about $50US if I decide to purchase. Terry

    Hi all, Heres a shot I took today. Still very new to this and tried different technique. I shot 10 frames in Backyardnikon, then processed the images through imppg to centre, then stacked in registax 6, with some adjustment in wavelets. Such a steep learning curve, but the missus says it keeps me quiet. Thanks for looking, Terry
