  5. From the album: Lunar and Planetary Images

    Had another look at my files and I seem to have got a bit more detail out. Thank you everyone for your advice. Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. Taken using QHY5L-II colour planetary camera and 8SE, using a Celestron X-Cel LX 2 x barlow. All AVIs stacked in RegiStax6 and processed in PS Elements 11 (composite image)

  9. The morning before, I was greeted with a close conjunction of Mars and M22 and went into "shutterbug mode", but almost ignored the fact that Saturn was also nearby. After all, the Saturn/Mars conjunction was yet to come (one day later). Well...the next morning, I shot 231 frames of the beautiful Saturn & Mars pairing and here are few of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them, too:
  10. Hi. I’m kind of new to stargazing and I want to view mars. On the website I bought my telescope from it says that planetary observation can be done with clear images being produced but I can’t see much of Mars and I was wondering what eyepiece would be best it has a 114 mm apature. thanks for any help you can provide.

  12. No where good enough for the imaging challenge on planets, but my best for a LONG time. I think I've imaged more in the last couple of weeks than I have in the last couple of years! Anyway, for what they're worth here they are: This is an image from Winjupos for Mars at the time of capture: C9.25; CGEM; ES 3× tele extender; Zwo ADC; QHY5LIIc Captured in EZP, sorted & centred in PIPP, stacked in Autostakkert2, wavelets in RS6, final processing in PS CS4 extended.
  13. Well for the first time n what feels like forever we finally had clear skies on a day where I could stay up late without having to get up for work the next morning! Unfortunately I can only operate my equipment from mains power due to my laptop being old and having aduff battery and not owning a power tank, I also can't see any of the planets from my shaded back garden so had to venture out to the front, where Jupiter was setting over neighbouring houses and Mars and Saturn were just peaking through some trees and right over some lovely orange street lights! Talk about challenging! Anyway, heres a little sample of what i caught, not the best I know but forecast is clear again tonight so hoping to have another go. Any advice for improvements welcome. Images were all two minute avi's (captured at 56 ms and gain at 8 out of 10 using Altairs capture software) with usual autostakkert and registax for wavelets. Telescope was Celestron Nexstar SLT (127 mak on supplied goto mount). As I say, if you have any advice please feel free to speak up!
  14. Mars 6-23-16 Cathedral City CA - Nexstar 6se asi120MC-S Here is a shot of Mars taken last night 6-23-16. Mars is shining brightly at the moment, due to its recent opposition last month. The desert heat has limited my deep sky imaging lately due to tons of image noise, but the planets are still shining brightly, as is the moon. This was taken with my new ZWO asi120mc-s planetary camera attached to a Nexstar 6se. This camera blows my old Phillips spc900 webcam out of the water! The surface details really stick out in this one, and you can see cloud formations. This is my best image of Mars...so far! http://coachella-astronomy-astrophotography.blogspot.com/2016/06/mars-6-23-16-cathedral-city-ca-nexstar.html
  15. Finally got a decent view of Venus and Jupiter last night. Yesterday evening was a beautiful end to the day in "darkish" Bedfordshire. Nothing complicated about the images, just the Canon 450 on a tripod. Venus was a fairly easy spot around 8:15 around 5 degrees above the horizon and 20 degrees to the left of where the sun had set. This was taken later once Venus and Jupiter had cleared the cloud bank above. This would have been a straight forward capture if it wasn't for the incredible amount of air traffic, one of my images had 7 aircraft in the field of view! I could hear and see an owl flying around the harvested field in front of me, I was hoping it might perch on one of those branches It was a great night to be out with so many classic sights, that photos really can not do justice to. There was a combine still working away when I left at 10:30, the dust that was slowly drifting though dips in the hills did look very atmospheric.
  16. Hi, using my wacky NexStar SLT and Celestron Mak127 is often frustrating, but when hunting planets it can be rewarding to overcome the limitations. The images are done with a ASI120MC and Firecapture. Used a 3x Barlow. Processed in AS!2, sharpened in Registax, touchups/GIF in GIMP 2.9.x. Cheers, Carsten
  17. Mars - taken last night (4/6/2016) under less than ideal conditions with hazy sky and poor seeing. This is the best shot (so far) out of 11. Mars is already noticeably smaller in appearance since it was in opposition a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately cloud ended the session before the scope could be turned on to Saturn but hopefully tonight will be better. This image was made from 2000 frames of video. Captured with FireCapture Processed in PIPP, Autostakkert, Registax, and Photoshop Equipment: Celestron NexStar 127 SLT Skywatcher EQ5 Mount ZWO ASI120 MC imaging camera x3 Barlow lens
  18. I thought I would have a crack at imaging Mars last night as I haven't taken any planetary images since 2014. I forgot what fun you can have with trying to focus and locate the target on a tiny CMOS chip! Despite its elevation being a pitiful 16 degrees it did at least produce some detail. Also tried Saturn but initial results look pretty poor. ASI120MC, x2 Barlow, Celestron 8SE. Fire Capture, PIPP, Auto Stakkert 2, Registax 6, PS 2015CC 2000 frames, best 10% processed
  19. The skies cleared and I jumped at the opportunity to image Mars at actual opposition and here is the result. This time, I used my barlow and imaging device with the Orion SkyView 180, yielding a larger image. There is a little atmospheric turbulence here and there but some moments of really good seeing and suitable frames for stacking. I used the same music for this video as I did in the "Mars Near Opposition" video. Enjoy! Regards, Reggie

  21. Hello everyone, second big night out with the scope and wasnt a bad one at that. The moon was at 98% full so bright as a spotlight on my now "claimed" dark sky spot out in the sticks around fife. Didnt see anything but the brightest stars but Jupitar, Mars and Saturn were still there shining bright as always to much enjoyment. The moon however was spectacular. I found that the moon filter was taking alot of the detail away and hiding alot in shadows so opted to use a 90° angle mirror and a barlow coupled with a 20mm lens to give a duller picture and it was fantastic! Got a quick pic on my phone looking through the lens. Dew wasnt a problem this time thanks to my new astrozap heat strip. Works very well - too well actually. Anyone have any hints on how to get the optimum temp on it as i was fiddling around with it abd no matter where i had the adjuster set i keep getting whats looks like thermal currents within the scope/dew shield distorting the picture occasionally. Any help negating this would be good but although it did stave off the dew completely. Also on that note my main optic on the front of my refractor is very dirty from the last dew build up ... how do i go about cleaning it cause ive heard mixed opinions on cleaning the main apeture.
