  1. Just cos I'm interested... We know Maks are great at planets and lunar. Lets showcase any images that are NOT planets or lunar. Has to be done through a Mak. Any camera setup. Any mount setup. My two first tries are single frames of Dumbbell and Ring nebular from a couple of years ago. Once the clouds clear I intend to try some proper stacked DSO imaging... so this thread is to give me inspiration of the art of the possible...
  2. I have a Celestron Nexstar 4sE 4 inch telescope, and a celestron neximage 5 with registax 6.1. Here are my first ever attempts at capturing Saturn: Terrible, I know. Are there any ways I can make this better? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Corkey
  3. Hi, I bought new celestron astromaster 130eq teleascope..Any one has this telescope and any sample images took from this telescope?It will be more helpful as am fresher...I want 2 see how far this can capture... Thanks..
  4. I did a quick (7 subs) image of the region around the Flaming Star Nebula and posted it... ... but I knew a few more subs would really help. I managed to get some over the last couple of nights. Both nights were a little murky but they were largely clear so I shouldn't complain.. This is a great region of the sky with loads of Ha objects, clusters, odd bits of nebulosity and so on and doing a slightly more widefield image allows me to capture more than one type of image at a time (value for money and all that!). Using a modified Canon 650D through a Borg 55FL f/3.6 scope and an IDAS HEUIBB filter, 30x 200 secs (guided) here's a reworked version as there's so many objects in there I thought I'd put an annotated copy in there two (manually - can't figure out the Pixinsight way to do it...). It's not perfect... there's artefacts in there caused by me stacking (and keeping) some subs that were taken at an angle to the rest..a practiced eye should be able to see that Actually, an unpractised eye probably can too I really must learn how to put pictures up here that don't get brutally jpeggerised... Oops - nearly forgot - does anyone know what the object at the top left is..? (The little red smudge...)
  5. Evening All! I'm starting to take my first steps into the 'post-processing' of my images, and to be honest with you, I have no real clue of what I'm doing. Hence why I'm here tonight, to pick your brains This is just one of a large selection of identical images I took tonight of a randomly selected patch of sky: DSC_0532.NEF As you can see, I get a fair number of stars in the image, but it's nothing too spectacular. Exposure time is only 1.3 seconds so I wouldn't expect much too begin with!. Now my main issue is how to stack my images properly. I know that I should stack my images, to get those better quality final pictures, but even after reading a few guides I'm not quite sure of how to get to those final results. As you can see after my attempt of stacking everything up (Using 'DeepSkyStacker') all of the limited details I had are lost and the image just looks a complete mess. Stacked.TIF Being new to the processing side of things, I expect I'm missing the blindingly obvious answer, but in summary, is 'How do I stack my images correctly?!'. - Stuart ( Also forgot how to attach my pictures as an image, so the file attachments will have to suffice I'm afraid! )
