  1. thanks i will next give it a go without the filter. and will give it a clean as well. do you think I need longer exposures, if so how long?
  2. new filter, have cleaned it now, but waiting for next clear skies thx
  3. Hello all, I took a wide field shot of Orion few nights ago. My set up: Astro-modified Canon 550d, Canon 50mm F/18 STM lens, Svbony CLS clip filter in Bortle 5 skies. ISO 800, F/2.8, exposure 1 min x 40. I'm not very happy with the result. Unsure why there is so much flare with the brighter stars and I didn't seem to get enough detail out of the nebula either Any advice on how I can improve for next time? I do understand I need to take longer exposures. Do I need a different filter? thanks! Orion 11-02-21.TIF
  4. Hey are you able to bring anything much out of this shot of Rosette I took? Again I think maybe my exposure time was not long enough. it's 1.5min shots x 20 Rosette 1.5 min.tif
  5. That's really sound advice Thanks so much. Yes I am planning on moving to a larger lens, but wanted to get bit better at taking wide field shots. This flares hasn't happened on my previous images, so it might be my CLS filter...
  6. Hi all My set-up: Astro-modified Canon 550d, Svbony CLS filter, Canon 50mm lens f/1.8 STM, Bortle sky 5. ISO 800, f/2.8, 1 min exposures x 40 Any ideas what is causing these flares? was it a smudge on my lens? Any suggestions on how I can improve to capture more detail and colour? thanks!
  7. Hey man, awesome thanks What is causing these flares? was it a smudge on my lens? Also this was my set-up: Astro-modified Canon 550d, Svbony CLS filter, Canon 50mm lens f/1.8 STM, Bortle sky 5 ISO 800, f/2.8, 1 min exposures x 40 Any suggestions on how I can improve to capture more detail and colour?
  8. Anyone wanna try processing this? thx Orion 11-02-21.TIF
  9. Hi all, Took a shot of Orion last night, with a Canon 50mm lens I've got PixInsight, but can't seem to get much out of the image... anyone fancy a try with editing?? I've attached the stacked picture Orion 11-02-21.TIF
  10. camera lens did end up misting.... but still got a some decent shots I think
  11. ok will post, might need some help with processing. btw, do I take the flat frames with the CLS filter on?
  12. yup I've got a intervalometer. ok I'm going to use ISO 800, f/2.8, 1 min exposure x 30.
  13. apparently the canon 50mm f1.8 is best at around f/2.8??
  14. what f ratio shall I use??
