  1. If you've still got it next week i'll pm you
  2. Just saved your image and did an arcsinh10 stretch and you can see the streaking in the darker areas, i think because m42 is brighter you dont have to stretch it as much
  3. Hi thanks for replying, trying to keep the weight down as it will be on my eq5 pro max payload is 9kg,, didnt realise the skymax was f12. would it be ok for planetary imaging
  4. Hi guys, like the title says, I'm looking at getting a second setup so i can do some planetary imaging and some of the deeper objects. my thoughts are a Skywatcher SkyMax 127 Maksutov and a ZWO ASI 120MC-S. What's anyone's thought on this? Thanks Rich
  5. the walking lines are from the static noise in the image staying in the same place, to remove this you need to dither your image and then it gets processed out in stacking but dont know about the colour issue
  6. Hi all, Been a while since i last posted and had a spell of good weather recently so been out imaging even with the moon out. Had first light of my Evostar 72ED on an EQ5 pro and modified my camera to make it allow more of the HA transmission through. Also brought the SkyTech quadband filter and had some pretty decent results considering we've been battling the moon. Thanks for looking M45 The Pleiades (Seven Sisters) (31/01/21 89% Moon) 106x60s Lights 25 Darks, flats and bias frames applied Stacked in DSS and processed in photoshop Leo's Triple
  7. thanks for you help. I really appreciate it.
  8. i've got a 2nd 550d coming friday which i am going to modify. Going to remove the UV/IR cut filter but leave the low pass filter in. From what i can see its the most standard method to boost ha signal.
  9. I have a zwo asi 120mm mini guide camera. havent used it yet, been waiting for these clouds to disappear. How long would my exposures need to be or is it target dependant?
  10. Hi everyone, I've been looking into filters for my astrophotography. Saw this earlier and was wondering whether it would be a good thing having all 4 main bands on one filter. I am trying to keep costs low as I've spent far too much already this year. Any advice on this would be appreciated.

  11. Been looking into this for a while now. I have a canon eos 550d. I see some people remove both filters. Some people remove just the low pass filter and some people replace the filters with astronomik mc clear or a baader equivalent. If I was to remove the low pass filter could I replace it with a cls filter so. Would doing this have a positive or negative effect? Thanks Rich
  12. I'm thinking of modifying my 550d, rather than buying a ir pass replacement could i replace the low pass filter with a CLS filter? thanks guys
