  1. After what has felt like an eternity my new imaging rig is now almost complete. I'm still waiting on a bracket to be fabricated to hold my powerbox and NUC PC on the scope itself, and I still need to make some custom power cables, but finally glad to have something that actually resembles a telescope .
  2. Nice writeup I've been looking for some observing sites in that area to take advantage of the dark skies (found a nice site up by the Lecht I'll be going to). I believe most of the area is Bortle 2, which is nice. Even though I've been in the north east for over 40 years I think I've only been up in the cairngorms a couple of times before.
  3. Wow, that is an outstanding image! I would never have believed that was taken in the UK given how poor our skies tend to be. M45 is something I want to image this winter as I have never managed to do it justice before, you have set the bar incredibly high!
  4. Wow, that's a beautiful image! I have been binging on ASI2600MC images recently (I have one on order) and this is the nicest one I have seen so far.
  5. Thank you all for the warm welcome I'm a bit of a Photoshop fan, but I am tempted to start using PixInsight. It looks like it'll take a bit of getting used to, but seems to be very powerful. As for other software, I intend to use NINA and PHD2. Yes indeed, I'm glad to see it's still going. I actually met John MacNicol through work around 20 years ago (showing my age now ) and he said back then I should join, I just never got round to it.
  6. Hi all, I've lurked on here for quite a while and decided it's time to sign up. Finally finding the time to get back into Astrophotography after working in the Oil/Gas industry for far too long. I have an Esprit 100ED, EQ6-R and ASI2600 on order from FLO and hope to get going in time for the dark Scottish nights Pete
