  2. I've been using a Quark chromosphere now since May and just wanted to share what an absolute delight this piece of equipment is (albeit I never seem to have enough cloud free sky to get it right on band). I had been using a ST80 but felt this was lacking and not a great match for the Quark in terms of focal length. I've since moved to a 120mm refractor and hope the images show how capable the Quark is.
  3. Good day all, still working on fine tuning my set up. Attached is aggressive (first) and soft (last) processing. End image is with a focal reducer, no filter, which resulted in more aggressive processing to bring out details. I was very impressed with the Baader 685 IR pass filter. Comments welcome. Thanks for looking/reading and clear skies. Waxing Gibbous 93% with Baader IR pass filter Dec 1, 2017. TS 72mm F5.5 apo. SW Star Adventurer. ASI120mm USB 3.0 FC, AS!3, ImPPG, Gimp
  4. Hello guys as you see i am new in the forums and im starting my stargazing adventure.I want to use my telescope as an astronomical and a terrestrial telescope so preferably a mak or a refractor.My budget is 450 dollars for both telescope and tripod. I already found one good telescope http://skywatcher.com/product/bk-1206az3/ Its the skywatcher 120/600. Let me know if you have any other telescopes.Thank you
  5. at last I can see the sun, and ar2665 is still there only just, theres a few proms scattered around the disc, no large ones. seeing is okish but theres a bit of thin cloud about but I'm just happy to get a few shots. kit ed80 quark asi12mc for HA, 120mm lunt wedge 1200d for WL. hope you all have clear , thanks for looking. charl. WL mono. WL coloured. ARs HA wider. prom oncoming limb. prom off going limb. prom off going limb lower.
  6. Thought I'd have a bit of a clear out, I never used this more than half a dozen times, I had intended to use it in a dual mode, guide and planetary camera but never got around to buying a planetary telescope. I have the original box , st4 cable, usb 1.8m cable & the 11/4 nose adapter.. Looking for offers over £120 I believe these are going up in price soon because of the current exchange rate. Here is the kit for sale along with the wide field fish eye ( with camera ) https://www.firstlightoptics.com/zwo-cameras/zwo-asi120mm-usb-2-mono-camera.html I will take some pictures of the actual camera when I get home later tonight.
  7. nice and sunny first thing, but that darn thin cloud is still there. sols gone very quite in WL, theres a little bit going on in HA, only the one prom. kit ed80 Quark,asi120mc for HA, 120mm, lunt wedge, 1200d for WL. theres a bit of action on the out going limb,ar2645 has a prom coming from it, cloud was worse when I got my shot, hope Ian gets a animation of it. thanks for looking, clear skys , charl. WL ar2648 ar2648 and filla'. ar2645. close but by this time the cloud had got bad so could only get 240 usable frames. closer artistic ar2648 prom and lastly a 2 pane artistic mosaic.
  8. nice and sunny here again in south wales, seeings ok but not the best but it could be due to thermals rising up the side of my house, its very warm today. AR2654 is nearly gone, AR2655 is still there but no spots visable in WL or HA just the snakey stuff, two nice sets of proms on both sides of Sol. hope you all have clear skys, thanks for looking, charl. on coming limb. middle AR2655. Out going limb last of AR2654. AR2655. Prom 1 oncoming limb Prom 2 outgoing limb very quite WL.
  9. Picked up my new addition to my expanding family of 'fracs on Monday, but only got a chance for a very brief test out last night at a hazy moon. The Celstron Omni XLT 120mm f8.3 is in very nice condition (thanks Allan! ), which just needed the optics cleaning with a wee clean with some Baader cleaning fluid and cloth. The results which can be seen in the pics below came out extremely well. A brief glimpse of the moon gave a very pleasing image through the EP. Didn't a get chance to view anything else except one or two bright stars as the seeing was so poor, with haze and mist around, but hoping for a better night soon to have a crack at some double stars, DSO's and planets of course. Only issue I had was with the focuser which slipped quite easily with my 2" diagonal in and Morpheus 14mm EP. A quick strip down of the mechanism soon sorted that issue out relatively easily. Going to compare this mainly with my ST120 f5 'frac mainly and see which give the best results. I'll post results up as and when I get the chance. PS. Oh, and Allan very generously gave me another 'frac for free too, so when I get round to checking that one out I'll let you know too. Cheers Allan!
