  1. Hello all, last I night I give a try at Orion Nebula when the clouds were not in the way I live in a fairly light polluted city centre (with a thick orange sky glow) so I decided to buy a Baader UHC-S filter to see if it would help, so this is my first light with the UHC-S and I was chuffed! In my opinion, it's worth every cent! Normally, even when taking a lot of subs, darks and flats I end up with weird gradients, heavy noise, lack of contrast and other annoying artifacts that not even post processing can get rid of, but last night the UHC-S blessed me and with only a bunch of quick subs and darks I've finally got some decent contrast, decent colours and detail ! Again, not an Hubble grade picture and very far from those crazy 100 hours Ha-RGB stacks, but it's my first half-decent DSO image so I'm happy with it (it must have been my lucky night yesterday, as I was lucky also with Jupiter). I think it needs some more post processing as there is a bit more signal and nebulosity to squeeze out. Any comment or advise appreciated! Celestron 80ED (F/7.5) Motorised EQ5 (Rough polar alignment) 2" UHC-S Filter Nikon D7000 20 subs, 20 seconds each, ISO 1600 5 Darks Churned by DSS Squeezed by Adobe Lightroom Thanks for watching!
  2. Hi all, the weather wasn't promising but I thought I would stay under the rain and take the chance. At sunrise, I started shooting without any filter (humidity and clouds were enough as filters) and I'm so happy I was able to capture Venus passing in front of the sun :D Click to enlarge:
  3. Hi all, just wanted to share my first stacked Jupiter pic. It's nothing special, but I'm happy enough as it is my first attempt at Jupiter with a webcam. Outside is very windy (especially on the roof) and cloudy, but I managed to capture some wobbly frames of Jupiter between the clouds It was also the first time I was able to do some rough polar alignment and successfully track an object, and the first light for my new Vixen eyepieces and my new Antares 3X Barlow lens. The preview on Sharpcap didn't show any color, even though the Saturation was about 70. I tried to increase it but the image was only showing artifacts rather then colors, so I ended up with monochrome captures any suggestion? Telescope: Skywatcher Explorer 200P Mount: Eq5 + Dual Axis Motor Barlow: Antares 3X Camera: XBOX Live Vision Cam Software: Sharpcap + Registax 6 on Windows XP (Virtual Machine on MacBook Pro) and Adobe Lightroom for OS X Location: Cork City, Ireland Jupiter (click to enlarge) And my rooftop: I have captured several AVI's so I hope come back with better pics.
