  1. I managed in the end to get rid of the noise, turns out that some of the dark frames were adding noise rather than canceling it out. I am in Bortle 8 skies so fairly washed out I got 1hr on M45 and 1hr20 on M31 I will aim for more data next time so I can get more detail. I'm happy I managed to pull my first image of M31 from it though
  2. I assume that the amount of noise I have gathered in these images will be due to temperature. It was easily around 20C in the evening these images were captured.
  3. Thanks for taking a look. That's odd. When I start processing in pixinsight or ps I see a lot of noise, maybe I'll try again
  4. Hi Guys, I have been trying to process 2 images taken the other night with my modified 450d, it was rather hot that evening. I have 2 stacked files of M31 and M45. Would some of you be able to look into the images see if they can be processed at all or is the noise going to wash them both out? https://1drv.ms/u/s!At2HsbO3QDb65yoMkUKbDDiPD550?e=K6Mudf Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi Guys, Just a quick question. Is the HEQ5 non pro with synscan good for images? What are the main differences compared to the HEQ5 Pro? Is the HEQ5 non pro a good mount to go for if the price is right? Regards.
  6. Thanks for the reply, I'm glad there is data to get out of the images. I'll have to give getting the coma corrected as I did wonder why with the alignment some stars had still seemed to trail but you have answered that question.
  7. Hi guys, So I tried photographing M45 and M31 the other night. I am struggling with the processing and wondering if there is anything I can do with the images or if I need better data ( the moon was quite bright ). I can't remember the exact settings for the images but they have been stacked in DSS. If anyone could look it would be much appreciated. https://1drv.ms/f/s!At2HsbO3QDb610ISoRUR5gQEQOhL
  8. Any recommendations to the alternative for the 130pds? Thank you for all the responses, would it be good assumption that I can give astrophotography a shot with the mount, scope and camera to see how it is and if I enjoy and to then looking into the other bits I need in regards to guiding?
  9. Hi All, I am looking to get into astrophotography and thought this would be the best place to ask the questions that I have. I was looking at getting the HEQ5 equitorial mount and something like the 130pds for a telescope. What else would I need (Other than camera) and also I will have no idea how to use the mount which will be a learning curve for me. If there is anything I should look into or learn before hand if you could let me know that would be great!
