  1. I've been trying to reduce noise on some zoomed in pictures of the moon i've made but i'm not sure if i'm approaching this the right way... It looks like it darkened the overall image a lot (which i'm not that bothered by). But I was wondering if there are better ways to do this. Currently I just applied a black image over the original image and 'blended' them together with one of those premade options. First image is the original one with noise. Second image is the editted version. Third image is of photoshop, what I did. Thanks in advance!
  2. Let the experts here create a small short beginner challenge new people can do and compete in. With/ without telescope. Example: Find ... constellation, Find ... planet/star/..., Make the perfect light shroud, Create a dark room, ... These challenges should be fun and help the beginner at the same time. Idk just an idea
  3. I joined last week and i'm in love with the extremely active forum. I did have to search quite a while to add a signature. Maybe you guys could add a hyperlink to the signature page on your edit profile? Thanks for running this awesome forum
  4. Welcome! Do not fear, SGL is here Don't hesitate to ask questions!
  5. Yes! This! I shouldnt have brightened up this image so much
  6. Getting closer and closer w photography! However I can't recognise a single thing
  7. Ahhhh a minute after I posted I saw there also existed Ursa Major and was so confused which one I photographed. Thanks for bringing clarity
  8. I'm totally new to astronomy and somehow am amazingly interested in it. I never learned constellations as a kid, and since i'm about to buy my first telescope (SW Hermitage 130/650) in a month or so I figured I should learn the skies with my own eyes first. I was so enormously surpised that I could actually see a constellation with just my eyes and i'm mad no one told me ever (With 10x50 binoculars was way too zoomed-in) A totally new world opened up for me. I tried navigating and finding more using some cool apps that really helped me a lot! Here's a picture of Ursa Minor (Galaxy S10), my first one ever. I'm so hyped to get my scope. Also thanks to everyone for helping me this week in finding out which telescope to get and explaining some terms. I couldn't be any more happy
  9. I'm pretty new to this and i'm reading some posts about 'widefield' setups, and scope's that are very good at capturing wide-field. Google couldn't really help me further so I was wondering what it really meant. I'm guessing it has something to do with capturing a lot in 1 image ? Thanks in advance!
  10. Yes, I should have thought about that the '130/650 Heritage FlexTube DOB' Proto Star recommended would be way easier to transport.
  11. Thanks! Looks like a nice competitor since i'm kinda getting more & more worried over the 'massiveness' of that 200 dobson 8". Will I still be able to do some deep sky object exploration with this model ?
  12. Thanks! Very helpful! It's level 6 here , but I'll find a solution
  13. I have not thought about this yet, probably at my house. I'm located 10kilometres outside a city so I'm half in the city, half in nature...
