    Star Halo(s)

    I've not checked yet, but i was pretty careful when installing the filters when i set the whole rig up initially (but i will check it again). @david_taurus83 Let me know if it makes a difference in the halos with the filters the right way round?

    @ollypenrice Do you do everything in PS or just certain processing techniques?

    Now that is impressive! I have PI, but now thinking that PS might be my only answer. There are PI routines to dampen down the halos, but I've yet to try them.

    Just had this sent to me from Baader, more of less saying is the reflections of my equipment, rather than their filters. https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/downloads/dl/file/id/287/product/2996/faq_problems_with_filters_can_have_the_strangest_causes.pdf

    Well, its good news... All data has been saved and recovered and all done for £100, which included a new 1TB USB3 Hard Drive (not too bad I thought). So, back to my problem with my filters :( I've attached a single 180sec HA sub of the Horse Head taken last night and it looks pretty bad :(

    Upgrading from modded 600D

    I went from the Canon 700D to the ASI1600 MM Cool which has a nice big chip. Best thing i done for imaging. Yes, your imaging takes longer, but the quality upgrade in the images is well worth it (IMHO).

    Sorry for not replying, but I've had somewhat of a disaster here. The external HD where i download ALL of my data (everything) was dropped accidentally while it was writing my latest batch of files and has subsequently stopped working I'm now in the process of having the HD sent away for analysis to see if it can be recovered. Fingers crossed.

    ZWO Off Axis Guider Play/Movement

    Is it not a fault in its design? This is quite a critical part of the unit to have in a fixed position I would have thought?

    I've got the ASI1600 MM Cool (Gain 139, Offset 21, Unity Gain) with the TSQ100 F5.8

    No, I'm using the 36mm Baader filters. And i'm getting them on all the NB filters.

    I'm getting these halos from a few of my filters. Anything I should be doing to get rid of them?

    Rule of thumb?

    Ah, no need for an apology, I'm glad the topic got a little attention. I'm still trying to understand it all if i'm honest haha

    TS-Optics Imaging Star 100mm f/5.8

    I have one of these quadruplets and I have to say its a beautiful scope. Whoever buys this is in for a real treat.

    Rule of thumb?

    Well, last night I imaged the Pacman Nebula all in Ha (5m subs) during the full moon and the subs on first inspection look pretty good.

    Rule of thumb?

    When narrow band imaging under a full moon like tonight, is there a rule of thumb of what filter does and doesn't work well under these conditions depending on the moons brightness?
