    Nothing pays off more in astrophotography IMO than time put into collecting data. 21 hours, time well spent congrats. Mike.

    Hi all, Its been over a year since i have rolled the roof off the observatory So thought it was time to get back in the saddle. I took this image through my 10" Skywatcher newt and SXVFH9 over two nights. No colimation tweeks just attached the camera focused and off I went, 28 subs @ 600seconds used from 36 taken ( wind was an issue last night).
  5. Found a way around the size issue, upload to album and link.
  6. Shame the Images don't upload at full size .
  7. Thanks Here is the Plato region ( 8 frames) from the same night 16/01/16 Mike
  8. From a mosaic run that the weather forced an early end. The plan was to work towards the terminator but the weather had other plans here is the rest of the run, over 50 frames in total. First image post on the new forum not sure how the upload will affect the posted image. Thanks for looking Mike.
  9. Thanks all for the very kind comments. Mike.
  10. Shot this Saturday /Sunday between 10pm and 4am. I haven't been out with the scope for ages so thought a moon mosaic would be a good way back in. Seeing was very good but as you can see there are lots of soft areas when I was shooting through fog patches Also I usually shoot moon images through a red filter to improve the seeing, I wrongly assumed the red filter was in line, it wasn't so this was all shot through the luminance filter. Kikking myself as through a red filter this could have been a lot sharper. Big overlaps on each frame increased the total needed greatly but because I am out of practice I thought better safe than sorry. Below is the full 170 frame mosaic @ 10% of full size and a full size crop (not sure how many frames are in the full size crop). click on the big image to get the full size pic. Taken through my 10" newt eyepiece projection with a 10mm ep and DMK21mono each avi was 3000 frames @ 60fps
  11. Great stuff, fix the guiding and go deep Mike.
