  1. Hi folks, Here's my 2nd attempt at the red one, the 24th looked to be a great evening at the start but high cloud moved in and caused quite poor seeing, this was also my first try of my new Astronomik IR pro 742 filter which really makes a difference. The IR channel is layered at 36% opacity but it really does bring out detail especially in slightly poor visibility. Thanks for looking Taken With SW200p, HEQ5, ASI120MM IR-RGB filter wheel stacked in AS2, Wavlet adjustment in Registax and finished if Photoshop.
  2. Hello everyone! Been a while since I've visited the forum, but just recently taken my first images of Mars, and wanted to share them. It was quite a battle to get these images - I've battled my scope being moved upstairs (construction work at our house), preventing any astronomy, my motor drive running out of battery, my RA axis coming loose, and my parents' laptop crashing, but I have finally got the data! Taken with DMK 21AU618.AS at focal length of 4,000mm, through my Explorer 200P. IrRGB, with about 10,000 subs of which 3,000 stacked, before being edited in PS. There are still some obvious colour errors, which I will try to fix, but for now, I'm quite happy with the result! As usual, any constructive criticism is always welcome! David
  3. - First time doing planetary in... a very long time. I kinda gave up a year ago when I realised my SCT was out of collimation. Adjusting it with the standard screws wasn't fun, so I replaced them with Bob's Knobs. And there it sat, uncollimated until tonight. Well, it still isn't properly collimated, just a bit less so with a rough 5 minute fiddle. Anyway, the Mars shot was taken with an old 8" Meade SCT, and the Jupiter was me playing with the Tal 125 RS to see how that compares. Both with a Bresser SA-barlow 3x and DFK21AU618. Preprocessing with PIPP as for some reason files from my Win8 laptop I'm using now aren't readable with AS!2 on my desktop unless I go through some intermediate format, but it had no trouble with the same files generated by my Win7 laptop. Stacking with AS!2. I really need to get the SCT collimated properly some time... still, I'm quite excited at my first go at Mars.
