  1. Hi, Autumn is here in Norway which means I can start using my scope again. My setup: Nexstar 6SE on a wedge with a Canon 100D connected. I never seem to get my images right. There are always some strange looking stars and I am trying to figure out if this is related to Collimation, Tracking, Focus or something else. Focus: (Vega) 30sec Exposure of Vega: As you can see Vega looks OK, but all surrounding stars seems to be having some issues. Is there a clear indication based on Your expertise on where my problem might be? 50sec exposure of M57 (Ring Nebula) Thanks. Stian
  2. Hello, I want to get into astrophotography. I have a Newtonian (200/1000) and I'd like to buy a DSLR. My preferred maker is Canon, but you can change my mind if you recommend something else and I like it . My budget is around $700 or less and most importantly used cameras not an option because in my country there isn't any good places to buy used DSLRs. I'd like to do prime focus photos and some Milky Way photos. I found out that the 1000d would be a good option but it's not in the stores any more. Then I thought about the 750d but it has vertical lines in the photos. Now I'm thinking about the 2000d but I didn't found any astrophoto experiences with it on the internet. So what's your recommendations?
  3. Hi All Took this beautiful nebula also knows as Tor's Helmet during my visit to Namibia this year. Finally got a few nights to process the raw images to the photo you see here. Photo Details: Ha: 1.4 Hours OIII: 35 Min SII: 25 Min RGB: 15Min each. Telescope: ASA 12'' Astrograph F3.6 Mount: ASA DDM85 Camera: FLI8300 Mono Thanks for watching, Haim Huli
  4. HEY its about time eh!!!! my first astrophoto with a dedicated cam using all the bells and whistles like iCap and Registax. Programs that are still alien mumbo jumbo to me, but after eating a whole bunch of youtube videos and a bunch more trial and error, I finally pumped out this abomination, or so it must seem to you Pro's lol I had a very vague idea of how to set up proper parameters in iCap for lunar imaging but I tried several settings and used youtube also, regarding wavelets, I basically dragged sliders all over the place and watched changes occur. There is much to learn about post work in iCap, but i'll give it the old college try lol, my sole reason for posting is for feedback, this is where you Pro's shine, oh do I need feedback. Anyway, it is my first astrophoto so no matter how much better it can be, well, it will do for now and I say that with a bit of swag because hey! at least I see craters there lol. Exposure time.....no clue! Number of frames....a whole bunch Attempts.....way too many! Wavelet values.....all over the place De noising....didn't work at all I think Codec...Y800 Resolution...12 something by ??? forgot The conditions were horrid, a mak is not an imaging scope as I have learned the hard way, F1800 not good, I will definitely be looking at a much shorter FL scope, Far too tight an image, I would need a 50 shot mosaic for full moon, or a focal reducer which I'm not sure anyone makes for my Mak.
  5. My image of Omega Centauri ( NGC 5139 ) has been published as the NASA APOD for the 11th of July 2017 https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap170711.html Link to full size image on NASA site ( warning quite large - 4620 x 3720 ) Link to discussion of image on asterisk.apod.com ( credit apod.nasa.gov ) ( full size image - 4620 x 3720 ) Link to original post for this image back on the 10th of June
  6. Finally managed to see something through the Bresser CCD, recorded my first footage of the Moon I was battling with wind, a crappy tripod and a broken off pan-handle so forgive the wobble please ! https://www.dropbox.com/s/kydegcjeacpl22j/20170109202328.avi?dl=0 Through a Celestron 70 travel scope (400mm), a 2x Barlow and a Bresser CCD. Cheers, Gary.
  7. I was very excited to process those photos of the NGC6188 region. After many hours of work I was not happy with the result and started from scratch, finally I got the result I was pleased with. Photo Details: Ha: 1.1 Hour RGB: 20 Min each channel Total Exposure: 2:10 Hours Telescope: ASA 12'' F3.6 Mount ASA DDM85 Camera: FLI 8300 Mono Location: Namibia Hope you like it too Thanks for watching Haim Huli To all my photos, follow me at my Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/101543943@N04/
