  1. Theres one from the 2nd M64, taken through the mak Newtonian, and an atik 314L plus mono. the stack was 14 x 4 mins.........cloud rolled in and spoiled the show after that.
  2. M63 galaxy,taken over several nights, in LRGB, through a skywatcher MN190, an atik 314 mono. Could have done with more images per stack, but though it was worth a share being its the first time ive tryed proper colour. Each colour was between 12-15 at 6 mins.......
  3. Heres an image from a few nights ago (8th) of a section of the Veil nebula. exposures were not as long as I would have liked due to cloud passing over, conditions were very average. This is a bi-colour image taken through the skywatcher mak Newtonian scope, an Atik 314L plus mono, with a 7 nm h-alpha filter, and an OIII filter. the h-alpha filter was 10 x 5 mins exposures, and the OIII filter was 9 x 5 mins.
  4. M81 taken throught the mak Newtonian skywatcher (MN190), 24 X 4 mins exposures. No filters just mono. Camera was the Atik 314L +
  5. Hi, Thinking about upgrading the standard focuser on my explore scientific Comethunter (152mm Mak Newt) to a Moonlite. The stock focuser is okish though my particular one was installed badly. Even though I've now got it working properly it's hard to avoid getting a bit of tilt when imaging and collimation registration isn't very reliable. Has anyone tried upgrading to a Moonlite on an ES tube - either the comethunter or a reflector? Moonlite's website doesn't specifically mention compatibility of the install kit base plates with Explore Scientific scopes but I'm guessing it will ok? I'm not especially worried about having to drill new holes or expand old ones but it would be great to hear from anyone who's been there. Thanks,
  6. M3 From the other night, naff conditions, so I was surprised it came out this way. Very short exposures, but being so bright I could get away with it. Equipment used was a skywatcher MN190, an Atik 314L plus mono. Plenty of exposures though at 40 x 10 seconds.
