  1. Thanks all for feedback. Very happy with cameras initial run. The image was not cropped apart from a slight sharp edge to the right caused by a misaligned frame. Yes the outer loop was clipped a bit when I tried to remove some vignetting. Flats should help. Thanks.
  2. After issues with goto accuracy, and clouds , I finally got to test my Atik 314L last night. Took 1 x 600sec L, 4 x 300 sec L, 4 x 300 sec R, 3 x 300 sec G, B No Darks, No Flats , No bias. I can tell that the cooling (35 Deg below ambient) makes this camera easier to use in terms of noise and processing. Next time I will put it through its paces and up the sub time and do full calibration. EQ6 8" Newt Atik 314L guided Comments welcomed

  9. Thanks CardConvict - have been reading up using different techniques and plug ins! Never ending learning curve!
  10. Nice shot. Good colour, detail, framing. shame about the Newt as I think they rock! I never have any issues with mine and I also use an MPCC. Anyway good work!
  11. Thanks all for the comments. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of detail the old Canon 350D was able to pull out!
  12. Thanks Glennbech, I use a Hutech Light Pollution Filter! It is a very efficient filter cutting out skyglow.
  13. Here is a less "blue" version Link to high res with stars rounded : http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt21/coolhandjo/Eagle-DSS-final-stars-large.jpg
  14. Hi, I was glad that the moon rose reasonably late the other night so I could image the Eagle Nebula before it came up over the horison enough to wash out the image. Taken with 8inch newt, Canon 350d modded, guided, 8 x 10min at ISO400. Post processing PS CS2. calibrated. Thanks for viewing high Res here http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt21/coolhandjo/Eagle-DSS-final.jpg
  15. Thanks guys - yes the rig is producing this consistantly so far - appreciate the comments.
  16. nice! is the camera modded? Wonderful crisp image
  17. Michael, I used ISO 400. Maybe could of used ISO 800. I might try that next.
  18. I found this target difficult to image. I took 10 x 10 min frames and applied darks / flats 8 inch newt Canon 350D modded. I was expecting more nebulosity and a sharper image. Comments welcomed. Thanks for viewing Higher res version here: http://i594.photobucket.com/albums/tt21/coolhandjo/swan-aip4win.jpg
