  1. Well last night was a lovely clear sky so decided to head up to that not so famous tree to take a photo of the night sky with a friend, after nearly running out of puff many times on the hills up and down we finally made it and set up to enjoy the glory of the dark skies in our area it was so clear that at one point it was mentioned it looks like you could reach out and to the stars i haven't seen it so clear in a while.
  2. Looks great seems to be such a hard target I found i could pull more colour out with less data which I found strange .
  3. Here is mine of my little observatory in my back yard while imaging messier 101 the pinwheel galaxy I decided to time lapse my imaging rig with the noght sky received_1529059737298297.mp4
  4. Hi all looking for some advice i have recently bought an altair astro 183c upgrading from my 450d canon i had and so i am still getting used to using it in apt now over the very rare last few clear nights i have imaged messier 101 the pinwheel , and now have over 5 hours of data to edit in photoshop but i dont seem to getting a great lot of detail i will upload both autosave and edited version , this was all taken with a skywatcher 130pds 183c 240s subs lights darks bias flats . any help tips or ideas muchly appreciated m101.tif m101 autosave 7-4-21.tif
  5. Other keter shed seems to have screws all the way around not bolts like the factor from what I have seen After looking at them .
  6. Hi Glen very interested in doing this type of obsy shed my self i presume that you got the factor keter shed as there is many different models and the only one with bolts for roof seems to be the factor model thanks stuart
  7. First time I have shot with my ha filter and tried to add it to my rgb image so not going to jump up and down about this one as i feel it needs a lot more data but this is around 3 hours of Ha/rgb on ngc7635 (the bubble nebula) 24x 5 min rgb subs 10x 5 min ha subs 10x dark flats and bias was all taken in my backgarden astroback yard style Gear used Heq5 pro with belt upgrade Skywatcher 130pds 90x50 guide scope with zwo 120mc Canon 450d modded Stacked in deep sky stacker and edited in photoshop let me no what you guys think .
  8. Thanks for your input as new starter with adding the ha into the red channel so this is my first tempt at this I thought i had focus on my ha as very hard to do so with it being the 7nm filter i will keep trying to re edit till I am happy
  9. Well Saturday was the first clear night I have been able to make use of so headed up to the battlesteads observatory to help out and of course to do some of my own imaging ,so decided to image the rosette nebula and give my ha filter its first light still not happy with this image but just learning how to merge the ha in with my rgb. so here it is my first hargb image added my 2nd attempt lot happier with it 20x240s ha 20x240s rgb 10x darks 20xlights 15xbias all taken with my skywatcher 130pds heq5 mount modded canon 450d
  10. Hi all first time I have been able to get out with my ha filter 7nm and decided to shoot the rosette nebula I have collect data via 240s subs in ha and also rgb via my modded canon 450d . The ha data seems rather noisy but looks ok and both stacked with out issues ,problem I have is once I edited and copy and past the ha into the rgb red channel it seems to become very noisy as seen below . Any advice would be muchly appreciated.
