  1. This is just superb Johannes! I really love the bi color, you see so much hubble pallete these days!
  2. I actually never thought about that untill you mentioned it Adam! Is it in all your subs as well? Cant check mine atm, but i will check later for sure
  3. Thank you Adam I'm using an TS-Optics 2" 3-element MaxField Newtonian Coma Corrector. I bet you noticed the stars in the top right corner, am i right?
  4. Thank you Craney Yeah when you get to know the 200pds it's not so bad. But i really had some struggles with the primary mirror, the edges were horrible and gave off the worst kind of glare! Now i've masked the edges and it produces some find images
  5. Thank you so much Andy, i wasnt aware of Arp's loop and mistook it for gradients of some sort lol. But now i've read up on it, i'm glad i got some of it! I didnt notice the red/magenta to be honest, i think i need to calibrate my monitor! Thank you for your comment
  6. Thank you so much Pete, i really appreciate your comment
  7. This one didnt quite go as planned, i think i might have tried to overcorrect for alot of things during post processing, but i might as well share it with you guys anyways. Then again, perhaps i've just stared too much at it during processing.. Anyways, i hope you like it m81 & m82 LRGB L 74 frames of 180s = 222 min R 41 frames of 180s = 123 min G 40 frames of 180s = 120 min B 38 frames of 180s = 114 min Total int. 9,6 hours 8" Reflecltor telescope ZWO ASI 1600mm camera Eq6-R Pro mount L 74 frames of 180s = 222 min R 41 frames of 180s = 123 min G 40 frames of 180s = 120 min B 38 frames of 180s = 114 min Total int. 9,6 hours
  8. Yeah i experienced the same, but i just tweaked the "lightness" and "saturation" options in the LRGB combination tool, an that made a really big difference
  9. It really is! Can't wait untill my next session
  10. So i got my new ZWO 1600mmc Pro the other day, and i had a clear night right after (wow.. right!?) This camera is so damn sensitive compared to my DSLR, it's just awesome! I went for m51 in LRGB and gathered alot of data. Unfortunately some heavy winds caused alot of discarted frames. I'm still to learn how to use the camera also Processing could've been better, but i'm learning Pixinsight and refusing to use Photoshop untill i'm able to produce an okay picture in PI I might have overdone it on the saturation, i really need to calibrate my monitor!

  11. I'll take it of your hands, if you are willing to post it to Denmark :)
  12. Hi David, thank you for your reply! I'm going to install Carte du Ciel and get to learn that one, i've heard alot of people using that over Stellarium, i now see the reason
  13. Hi Roland, thank you for you reply! I did exposures above 1min, with minimal trailing, but yeah there was a small amount, i was just thinking that was because of the weight of my setup and that didnt allow for much longer exposures without guiding. But one thing i wasnt sure about was the polaris position, and the fact that i live in Denmark with daylight savings and all.. Perhaps i was and hour off? All my coordinates was the same in EQMOD, Stellarium and APT. But i've heard alot about Stellarium being bad for EQMOD so i will try the other alternative for sure
