  4. yes its the skywatcher star adventurer. Great bit of kit when i can get out and use it. im going to make more of an effort this year to get out and use it. im pretty happy with the exposure lengths from the sticking polaris in the x cross hairs of the polar scope. im also going to try some work from home this year once i get LP filter sorted for the 70-200mm F2.8 lens, i may even buy a little APO to stick on it kids are getting older now so im able to get back out more for long nights.
  5. It was the SA it’s a great bit of kit. Duno why I had a moment of madness a few weeks ago and thought about selling it
  6. so while i was out the other night i thought id try some testing ready for the MW season. bare with me i know its noisy but its just one image DSS doesnt seem to like stacking my subs for some reason. im hoping to create a huge milky way image this year with lots of detail. Shot at 35mm cropped in a little bit as there was a bit of glow from the rising sun. X1 360 sec ISO 1000
  7. i prefer the 1x1 crop, looks excellent on my screen
  8. Jesus that’s cheap. These are great EPs I really enjoyed mine when I had them.
  9. Thanks Kerry i had to light paint it to make it more interesting, other wise it was just pretty boring foreground with great sky.
  10. two exposures with a skywatcher SA. 300 seconds for the sky and then 120 for the foreground blended in PS cc
  11. no its not a composite, just two exposures one for the sky one for the foreground. Sky 300secs ISO 1000 F4 foreground 120 seconds IS0 1600 and light painted blended in PS CC
  12. So last night i headed out to a spot thats not so popular very little known and hardly and shots with astro done. There was an amber aurora alert for this location but when i arrived it was clear but just clouding over. It was a long 3.5hour wait. lucky the car wasn't to far away as it was raining at times. spent around 8 hours at this location, and headed back the car at 4:45AM (2hour drive home) only to be met by some local police officers saying there have been reports of suspicious behavior they intrigued by what we where doing. once we explained what it was we where doing they where more than happy to get back in their warm vans as 2 of them where shivering while taking details Milkyway over a lovely little Tarn by Danny Kenealy, on Flickr
