  1. My attempt to take picture about Messier 13 was not easy with my alt-az mount + smartphone. Into okular I used 2x zoom to cut down the viggnettation and a little part of coma. I think, it is still good with 2x zoom, the stars looks round out. Celestron 8" SCT, alt - az mount, 25mm okular, Huawei P10 in monochrome mode, ISO 1000, 15 sec. Of course I used a very massive smartphone adapter. https://www.astroshop.de/kamerahalterungen/omegon-easypic-universal-smartphoneadapter/p,49763
  2. From the album: Starchasing

    One of my best images of M13 so far!

  3. I added a sub, toyed with the luminance a bit and generated this: You can see more stars near the core, a more present image overall. I'm stoked Clear skies, Reggie
  4. Hello again, So I finally got out last night (30th July) for my first ever observation with the Skywatcher 200P I've had collecting dust for about 2 weeks now! The sky was cloud-free but with urban light pollution. I really struggled to use the standard straight finderscope - I don't know how people cope with those: I needed yoga positions Back Bend, Table Top and the Camel just to get my eye even close! I'll try it some more but I imagine I'll be purchasing a RACI finder asap!! By scanning with the main scope though I'm fairly sure I managed to find M13 at first. It didn't look quite like it does in "Left Turn at Orion" though - to get a similar-sized view of the Cluster I had the magnification set at 133x which is nearly double the view in the book for a Dobsonian under medium power (75x or 40'). I wondered whether this was more likely because the ambient light was drowning much of the size of the cluster out? It was really impressive to see nonetheless! Then I tried to find Andromeda... Which I thought I had, but it wasn't nearly as large or impressive as the book suggested. I was far more impressed with the Hercules Cluster through both viewfinders, in terms of size and clarity. Is there a chance that I hadn't in fact found Andromeda but some other Galaxy, or could it be a problem with the urban lighting/ difference in direction I was looking that made the difference?
