  1. Thanks. I was holiday there last October and I got lucky with two evenings of clear skies; I have NEVER seen so many stars, it was amazing ?
  2. Following on from the Orion Nebula, whilst in Devon last year I took this shot of M45.
  3. No problem Ouroboros, it's nice to get honest feedback. ?
  4. Thanks vlaiv, That looks very interesting, I guess I would need the tripod too (?); would I need anything else such as a dovetail bar? ? I like the idea of it being a full GO TO as well ? Rick.
  5. Unfortunately the mount is broken so I am unable to use it ? I've had my eye on one of these: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-heritage-114p-virtuoso.html I know it's not best suited for photography, but I might give one a go just to see, and it's not that expensive at least. lol Rick.
  6. Thanks for all the nice comments. I will definitely keep at it, and most certainly will try the deep sky stacker program. Light pollution is a big problem where I live, but I suspect others suffer too. I live about an hour away from the Peak District so I might venture up there to dark skies ? Rick.
  7. Thanks all. ? The upstairs bathroom light was on which sort of ruined my shot a little bit, lol. RayD: what sort of equipment do they use?
  8. That makes me feel a bit better, haha. Some of the other users' images on here are incredible - their equipment must cost £1000s! lol ?
  9. Here is my first pathetic attempt at capturing the Orion nebula, lol I used a Canon EOS M on a table top tripod for approx 10 seconds.
  10. Hi there, I too have the EOS M and it's a great camera, but I find the lack of a flip-out screen frustrating so just wanted to ask what the M3 is like as I was thinking of upgrading? Many thanks, Rick.
  11. Apparently SL starts on 22nd May, but in Australia only. Bummer!
  12. I sold the TV ep some time ago as it was surplus to requirements, but I came into some money to pay for my kit fortunately (I haven't got round to editing my signature, lol :p)
