  11. Hello stargazers, welcome. I had posted a picture yesterday of Uranus that had appeared to show its rings. I am using a Nexstar 4se, a 2x Barlow, and my Neximage Burst Color and capturing hundreds of photos and stacking them for my results. But still had me and others curious to if I were actually seeing the rings of Uranus or maybe just a glare of some sort. So I got back out there this morning, might I note I live in FL where the weather tends to stay hot so clear imaging during this time of year can be difficult, but not impossible as this image that I stacked 150 out of 300 images taken may show that statement holds true..............or I could just be mistaken the object in the image, but all in all I am feeling pretty confident that I have a decently clear image(stacked 150 images) of Uranus, its rings, and one of it's distant moons. It may be necessary to zoom in on my photo in order to see the moon it should be down and to the right of the planet a good distance in relation to the size of planet, I noticed that looking at Uranus in the photo helped bring the moon out just like stargazing in real-time. If anyone can better distinguish what I might have done right or wrong here any help would be appreciated (also forgot to change format save for my images so I am stuck with .bmp and setting it as a download, sorry for any inconvenience.) - - - J47(JAY) uranusringmoon.bmp
  12. Yesterday's Moon with the straight wall. Rupes Recta (middle right) and the crater Pitatus (bottom left).
  13. Hi, i..m on Stargazers Lounge for long time ago, but now i have a new scope at last!!! The scope is a Skywatcher classic200p dobsonian, and i received it just one month ago. I.m really happy with it. For now, i.m using the stock eyepieces that come with the scope, a 25mm and 10mm super plossl 52. Yesterday i was received a Celestron Omni barlow, and that expands my magnification range. I posted some pics with my set. Congratulations to Stargazers lounge team, this is one of the best sites to learn about astronomy and equipment. Besf regards to everybody
  14. Hi, since i started work on my observatory there hasn't been much time for AP, but since lunar photography is done in minutes i had a go yesterday. Gear: SW AZGTI with the Skymax127 and Sony A6300 and Baader Neodymium Moon & skyglow filter. 100 frames taken and 50% used to stack in autostackerd.
  15. Posting in this forum after too long! One of the first attempts at taking photos of the moon. All photos taken using skywatcher 90mm refractor with eq2 mount, Nikon DSLR and 2x Barlow here and there. No exposure. Basic editing in cellphone. Thank you! Suggestions highly appreciated!
  16. Hi all, First post on here looking for some telescope buying advise. I've searched and seen some similar topics which have been very useful but thought i'd summarise and see what the experts think. I'm looking at getting myself and my girlfriend a telescope as an anniversary gift. She's not scientifically minded at all but she really likes the aesthetic of the moon. The house is filled with 3D printed moon lamps, jewelry, cushion covers etc.. We're about to move into a new house in Forest Hill in SE London and the new house has a really large garden backing onto more gardens so quite sheltered from all street lights. We both said to eachother a telescope might be a nice thing to have in the new house and something we can enjoy together in the new garden. I've got a budget of up to £200 but by no means want to spend that much if I'm paying for features we don't need or will use. I've got some experience with a reflector scope that was my brothers. He got it years ago and we both obsessed over it for about a month and then once we'd seen the big planets and a few blurry distant clusters we got bored and it never got touched again. That was a 130mm DIA reflector (skywatcher I think). After the initial excitement, my overriding feeling towards it was it was not worth the faff! This was in dark Northumberland as well, not London. I've tried to explain this to my girlfriend when we've talked about it and said if we don't want the faff we might have to invest in a Go to electric telescope. The logic being if its quicker and easier to see stuff, we'll use it more. I did get then quite excited reading reviews and trying to find second-hand goto scopes and it seems like something in my budget (or slightly pushed budget) is something like a Celestron SLT 127. (have seen second hand ones go for £250). However having then done a bit of reading on here I think i've worked out that those cheaper Go-to's are still not that quick and simple to use, ultimately i'm I'm still only going to see fairly blurry planets and smudges of deep space clusters. I honestly don't think the girlfriend will be impressed and I'll probably get bored after a while too. So I think I've come to the conclusion that I want to get a much smaller refractor that would be much more accessible for viewing the moon and would allow us to see a smudgy Saturn and Jupiter on clear nights. A smartphone camera holder would be a bonus too as it adds a simple feature that would keep us entertained for longer. Do you think that's a fair approach or am I being a little too pessimistic about what I'm going to see? If so then what scopes could anyone recommend? Stepping down to a slightly lower budget there are so many more options and it's a bit bewildering. Thanks
  17. I'm a keen moon observer (and new here), primarily using 15x50 Canon image-stabilized binoculars, but also an old 4-inch 'scope that recently broke. I want to take things to the next level and invest in a 'scope powerful enough to study lunar features as the terminator creeps, including craters, mountain ranges, and perhaps even the lunar X, etc. It would be great to have the option of photography in future if that doesn't hugely change what I should buy, but observing is by far my primary goal here. Any suggestions please? Budget is £1.5k+. Thanks! Jamie
  18. A couple images I was able to take with my iPhone and my Dobsonian XT8. using the Camera +2 app Anyone know any other good phone apps? ?
  19. Totality of the Longest duration total lunar eclipse of the century. While this is just one image, given that Bangalore was completely clouded out, or rather, my location was completely clouded out, I had previously planned to put the mount and scope on tracking, so that even if there was a break in the clouds for a few seconds, I should be able to capture the moment. The shot below was taken through hazy conditions, but given that the conditions were such, I am happy with the outcome. The next eclipse is due to occur on 21st Jan 2019(?). I shall be better prepared. Scope: Orion 80ED with Orion Field Flattener Mount: Sky-Watcher HEQ5 PRO Exposure: o.5s ISO: 6400 Camera: Canon 550D Location: Bangalore, India

  22. Taken in Cornwall, UK with Samsung SM-G935F smartphone held up to small pocket Nikon binoculars. Everything handheld with great difficulty! I was pleased, and so were the hotel staff!
  23. I've just seen the travelling Museum of the Moon exhibition in Leicester, and I highly recommend it. It's a high resolution 7 metre diameter 3D model of the moon that you can walk around, and it's simply gobsmacking. I took along my Vixen 2.1 x 42 super-wide angle binoculars, and Pentax Papilio 6.5 x 21 close-focussing binoculars and spent hours looking it over - great views of both near side and far side. I think it's in Leicester for another week, and in Glasgow for an extended period starting some time in May. If you're into lunar observation you'd be crazy to miss it.
  24. Hi all, Stacked image of 384 frames taken from a 720p mp4 with my Sony a6300 in prime focus on a SW Skymax 127. I started imaging in january this year, so i'm glad with my results. single frames, camera on a Baader Hyperion 13mm + 14&28 fine tune ring (so 8,2mm)
  25. Further processing of lunar data captured on the exceptional night of 25th February. Image shows the Mare Imbrium area, taken with my ZWO ASI 120 MC camera attached to my Celestron Omni 120mm f8.3 'frac. Processed through Registax, and edited a little in PS.
