  1. Dave, You have just blown my mind, what is this almost black magic. Is it dark web stuff, after doing/trying astro stuff I turned to solar and never did I believe this stuff was out there. You have just added more fuel to my love of the greater cosmos. If not a little sun burnt.
  2. Dave, Thank you for this, as silly as it sounds but what is the veggie bag!. I do have Gimp but so frustrating. what can you recommend for future images and again thank you for the quick process it's nice to know that their is people out there willing to help and share Thanks Dave hope lunch way good. Lee
  3. Not quite sure, other than the fact I was struggling to see my lap top due to the sun. Think I need to go under cover to see what I'm doing in future. Any thoughts on how to go about putting the 2 images together. I don't have PS.
  4. Thanks guy's. Well this is what I have come up with so far, your advise is more than welcome. Processed in AutoStakkert and RegiStak 6 Prom_g4_ap370.tif surface_g4_ap5880.tif
  5. After spending a lovely day in the garden yesterday, I managed to capture a lovely solar prom with my PST and altair GP 130M. Looking for somebody who can point me in the right direction regarding processing the image and bring out more detail. Thanks, Lee
  6. Yes it is, let me know if you need anymore information about it.
  7. Reduction in price, all as listed above £1000.
  8. Kippford, The scope and gear as said are mint condition, as new. The only marks you will see are the usual ones on the dovetail bar from were it has been nipped up when used on my AVX mount.
  9. I am selling my Celestron Nexstar 8SE telescope, mount and tripod with a bunch of gear. The time has come to make some space in the house for my ever expanding collection of astro gear. I am wanting £1200, no offers please and this is sold as a package and will not be broken down into individual items. Collection only but I am happy to travel distance or meet half way. The scope and gear is in mint condition and fully boxed except the tripod, also comes with the standard red dot finder, visual back and a couple of cheap ep's; Celestron Nexstar 8SE Celestron C8 Flexible dew shield Celestron F/6.3 Focal Reducer Celestron 9x50 illumimated RA/CI finder scope Seymour Solar type2 glass solar filter RVO 12V mains power supply Celestron 2" XLT Diagonal SCT fit Celestron X-CEL Ep 1.1/4" 9mm Celestron Sky Portal v2 Wi Fi moduale Starwave Bathtinov mask This entire set up retails just over £2000 and is a bargain for somebody looking to upgrade or start out. The image of M81 attached and is the last image I took with this scope back in February this year, not the best picture some people will say but proof that the optics are quite outstanding on this scope.

  10. Vlaiv, Thanks for this, but what I'm looking for is to carry out if possible William Herschel experiment from the 1800's. Simple letting a said volume of water heat up over a given time by sun light alone and then some how do ( very rough calculations) to work out how much KW of energy the Sun kicks out. What's your maths like?
  11. Can any one help, I'm wanting to do the experiment with a small can of water and let it heat up from sun light to work out the power of the Sun. The one that Brian Cox carried out on tv some time ago. I need to know step by step as I want to do this with my Scout group while doing some solar observing.
  12. Vlaiv, your help is spot on thank you.
  13. Can any body help. I'm trying to find/workout the pixel size, width and height (in pixel) of my Canon 800D. I am wanting to sort this out so I can input them in PixInsight system parameters.
  14. Thanks all, I will give the guide scope move ago first before the counter weight. Small weights are so expensive.
  15. LightBucket, thanks. Can you point me the right direction for a weight balance kit. I really don't see another option.
