  1. Thanks Rihard for providing that info because I honestly can't remember what I done!! Paul Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk 4

  3. Obviously that should say uncooled telescope. Not sure how to edit posts
  4. I ordered one on Friday and it arrived yesterday (Monday) I got my first light with it this morning before work so this shot is taken through an uncooled camera and I also used Firecapture for the first time so all the settings are at their defaults. Skywatcher 200p Tal 2x barlow Best 75% of 2000 frames in Registax. Paul
  5. Not dumb at all but my reply probably is as I don't really know! I would guess that it is probably a mixture of my own interpretation and actual colours. The reason our eyes don't see the colours I'm guessing is because the moon is highly reflective of sunlight resulting in us seeing a white disc. My answer is probably wide of the mark but maybe this link helps. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/multimedia/lroimages/lroc-20100910_color_moon.html Paul
  6. Thanks. Thanks. It's just a single RAW file taken with my DSLR and given a saturation and contrast boost in Photoshop. Paul
  7. My first effort at the Moon in colour. Taken with my Skywatcher 200p and Canon 7d. Contrast and saturation boosted in Photoshop. Paul http:// The Moon in colour. (Explored) by Paul S Wharton, on Flickr
  8. Cheers. I did use Sharpcap but I can't remember the settings. Paul
  9. Here's a wee tip to help with fine tuning your focusing. Just use a clothes peg! It works wonders just by nudging the peg instead of fiddling with the wheel. Paul
  10. I live on the edge of a town called Craigavon in Co Armagh. My back garden has good views of the east, south and west but having a neighbour who works out of his back garden as a mechanic can be a pain when he puts his security lights on! Paul
  11. No need to start with lunar then on to planetary. They can be done together along with solar with your current kit and a webcam and some solar film for the solar imaging. Once you decide to move to DSO's that's when it gets expensive and complicated! Paul
  12. I use either AutoStakkert 2 or Registax 6 then finish in Photoshop. Paul
  13. Thanks for all the replies. I'm going to look into upgrading to an imaging camera to replace my webcam. I've also got an Imagemate 4x but since I got it 6 months ago I've never been able to get a decent focus. I'm sure it's just down to bad seeing but I've pretty much given up with using it. Paul
  14. I was thinking that too. I'm hoping to get an Imaging Source camera soon. I'm also hoping to get a Celestron C9.25. Paul
