    Remote Imaging

    Since Sept 2012 I have been remote imaging using my equipment at Astrocamp, Nerpio, Spain. (www.astrocamp.es). All these images are captured remotely and processed by me. Learning all the time!
  3. I just rejoined today after a 5 year gap visiting this site. Now I do all my imaging remotely using equipment I have installed at astrocamp atop a mountain in Spain. Mostly I do deep sky stuff, but I had one go at photometry with the help of a friend to process. I'm keeen to do collabrative projects if anybody else is? I have a Stellavue 102ED with televue flattener on Paramount MX mount, QSI 683wsg with 8 filters, lodestar for off axis guiding, lakeside electronic focuser, kendrik dew heater. s/w Sky X6, maxim DL, ccdautopilot professional, ccd navigator3, photoshop etc. I have on order a Takahashi 150 which should be up and running by the end of May 2014. so would love to do some collabrative stuff, binary star stuff and eventually exo planets. let me know. attached is my first and only results, which show good correlation to the established data.
  4. i got photoshop cs3, should help with the processing. But i'm saving up my shekels and pocket money and any other currencies i can get my hands on for a visit to astrofest in london, which usually sees me parting with hard earned dosh in a mad buying fest. actually just want a televue reducer/flattner for my imaging.
  5. second hand is the way to go, not only ebay but also astro buy and sell is good, or drop a line to a few astro societies, they'll check amongst their members. I think you should also consider an astro ccd camera, i sold a starlight express MX7C one shot colour camera on astro buy and sell with software and it fetched about £350 i think, having bought it about 5 or 6 years earlier for about a grand, so there are deals to get good kit.
  6. Thanks, could do with some clar sky. Plus having to take a short break from imaging as the connector on my Lodestar autoguider broke, solder problem so it's gone back to Starlight, who were very responsive.
  7. i'll take a look thanks
  8. anybody else out there got an opticstar DC 145M ICE by the way?
  9. appreciated. it really is with imaging that i need all the help i can get, plus if anybody can either clear the skies and pollution or perhaps lend me their cabin and equipment on a chilean mountainside is always appreciated too.
  10. Hi ,I used to have a celestron I think you should not use the pole star as one of the aligment options. think that will do it.

    just joined

    Hi I have just joined. I live under orange skies in the UK. Marvellous. No choice. I have a roll-off obseravtory with a pillar, vixen sxd mount and for visiual an orion optics UK 12" Maksutov. I have started astro photography in the last year and use a stellavue SV 102mm and an opticstar DC 145M ICE ccd run by nebulosity. Coupled with this I have a skywatcher 66mm and Starlight lodestar for guiding. I can get very long exposures as everything is rock solid, but usually do 5 minutes then stack them. I am poor at processing which i need to learn. I use astro art mainly. (dreadful instruction booklet). All assistance with processing is welcomed!
