  1. My first DSO with my new scope (Esprit 100ED) taken over a couple of nights this week with a modified 450d. It was stacked with only a little bit of processing in AA6, 42*300s subs, darks, bias and flats all captured using APT. PA was done using Sharpcap Pro and guiding is with a ZWO 60mm guidescope and an ASI224MC. I dither between each sub so don't know whether I should stop using darks, also I need to sort out my guiding as it could be a lot better. My processing skills need to be improved a lot, I'm considering getting Pixinsight, I've seen lots of great pictures using it, how easy/hard is it to learn the basics to get a reasonable result from? Here it is let me know what you think good or bad.
  2. Just finished hypermodding my Canon 450D following the instructions from: http://thaiastro.nectec.or.th/hypermod/ and took it one spet forward and chopped off the unnecessary ribbons from the top panel. The poor camera now looks like this: It was a great sense of relief when I connected it to my laptop and it worked! Also finished making the peltier cooler and that lookes like this: I made an attempt to build a box for the two, but failed. Does anyone know of a ready made sealed box that could host the modded camera? I have seen a thread that someone has put the camera in an aluminium electic box, but that's a bit too heavy. I am looking for a clear polystyrene or pvc/plastic box. Appreciate it if someone has similar experience and have found a good box... Clear skies, Naeim

  5. Hello there, I'm planning to use my Canon eos 450d for deep sky astrophotography attached to a telescope and need to know which settings to use including most importantly the custom function setup, I have searched everywhere on the net to find this info but to no avail. Any help would be very much appreciated. Kindest regards, Paul.
  6. I've modded (well tried too) my Canon 450D and removed the IR filter and its housing completely and as i put it back together these copper shim things fell out and i dont have a clue were they came from??? Ive tested the camera and it powers up then it wants me to input the date/time etc and if i press the shutter button, it goes into rapid fire mode and only stops when i switch the camera off AND remove the battery. As soon as i put the battery back in, its does the same again, powers up and asks me to input the date/time etc. Ive tried several times removing the back again and re-seating the ribbon cables but it doesnt cure anything. Im not sure what ive done wrong here, as ive modded my 350D with no problems but any help would be GRATEFULLY appreciated. :embarassed:
