  1. Hi, i captured orion nebula with nikon d5600 and nikon 18-140mm lens,the images it took was shaky and look like small star trails but i kept only at minimum shutter speed...what is wrong with the image? i hv attached sample image..pls help
  2. I currently have a Skywatcher Star Adventurer Tracking mount. I am looking at options to improve my accurate exposure time. My first option is autoguiding. What is an effective autoguiding solution for the Star Adventurer? Or am I better off completely upgrading to a Celestron Advanced VX without an autoguiding solution?
  3. If any of you are interested in a star party in East Suffolk, we have been hosting a Star Party every March and October at Hinton, near Saxmundham, Suffolk at a newly developed Caravan and campsite, Haw Wood Farm, for the last 5 years. It is £12 per pitch per night with electricity hook up (adapter needed) call Dan or Georgina (see link below). Some of you here may know about it; on good nights we have had a SQM reading of 21.75 - it can get dark enough to see the Zodiacal Light! Many local society members meet up: Norwich, Castle Point, North Essex, OASI (Orwell), DASH (local) and Breckland among others and it is generally friendly and welcoming (if we can see you in the dark!). Saturday 14th we run an event: a skytour or talks in the cafe, dependent on weather. Unfortunately, timing clashes with the SGL star party but we're a long way from it. See link for details: http://www.hawwoodfarm.co.uk/things-to-do/events-hawwood/
  4. I was out imaging on Saturday night and faced an image shift problem for the first time in 3 years. Description is below: I had three targets in mind. Horse head, M51 and Pinwheel. The scope to be used was my GSO RC6, camera was my Canon 500D, mount was my HEQ5-PRO guided with PHD and finder guider. I had made sure that there was no drift when the scope pointed Southward near the Celestial Equator. I forgot to check the Eastern Horizon. I setup the exposures and after an hour found that the object had shifted Westward in the frame. No shift North or South, just Westward. Also, time and again the guider seemed to be loosing the star as I could clearly see that the mount was tracking intermittently. The entire night was an absolute waste. Any advice on solving my problem would be greatly appreciated.

  6. I am new to this forum so I apologize if I am doing this wrong. I'm still trying to learn! I have mostly done widefield astrophotography, but I have recently obtained a Skywatcher Star Adventurer Tracking mount. So now I am beginning some more deep sky astrophotography, but I'm wondering if there is any advice I could get to help improve my pictures. My equipment list is as follows: * Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount (that allows for 2 minutes at maximum focal length) * Canon 550D (Rebel T2i) * Canon 75-300mm f4.0-5.6 The night sky ranks at about a 7 on the Bortle Scale. The Milky Way hardly visible when it is out Below is an example of a photo that I recently obtained from my backyard to give an example of what I have done so far. Any help would be much appreciate to improve my photos. Once again, sorry if I am not using this forum correctly. Conor.
  7. Hi Folks, This is my first caibrated deep sky image of M42, 10x 180s, 10x 180s darks, flats & bias, all at iso 400, not enough exposure really. I'm reasonably happy but it was processed in css but as JPGs as it doesn't recognose the Canon 550d Raw files. I'm not sure what is causing the concentric circular ghost pattern to the right, any clues. Thanks for any feed back http://www.flickr.co...s/41661025@N06/
