  1. Low shutter count. Have used this camera only twice. Once for andromeda and then for lunar eclipse. Will supply with 2 or prob 3 batteries, whatever i have and charger £200 pp extra
  2. After publishing my latest YouTube video showing me bumbling my way through trying to photograph stars from my shed, someone commented I should use a Baader semi-APO filter on my refractor telescope ( explore scientific AR152 ) along with a IR/UV Cut Filter. Using a semi-APO filter makes absolute sense to me, and reading up on them, they look like a really worthy investment. However, as I'm using a basic Astro-modded DSLR camera ( Canon Eos 1300D - I just had the basic mod: single filter removal), the idea of adding a IR/UV Cut Filter is not making sense to me. Wasn't the filter that was removed from the modded camera, a form of IR/UV Filter? If so, wouldn't I just be nullifying the modification by using one? Appreciate any clarity on this - much thanks ?? PS Heres a link the video in case you were curious: https://youtu.be/iNUevy47fAc .

  4. Hi, I would really appreciate some feedback/advice on the following. A few nights ago I took 45 x 300s subs of the Rosette Nebula at ISO800 with a modded 700d Canon DSLR through a Altair Wave ED80. I've stacked the image with 30 darks, 30 bias, no flats (I have a plano which, apart from the extreme edges seems to handle any vignetting) and had a go at processing in photoshop. I live between Leeds & Wakefield so skies are very light polluted but tried to reduce the effects by using a Hutech IDAS LP filter. I started image capture about 9pm so the Rosette Nebula was relatively low in the sky although some captures were taken much later when it has well above the horizon. After stacking I had some data but a lot less than I was expecting and really struggled to bring out any detail on Photoshop. The questions I have are: 1) Is the level of data I have (see screenshot of DSS) typical for this amount of subs? (I have spread the channels out so you can see the data for each. I've aligned each before processing. 2) Should I have used a higher ISO say 1600? 3) Would changing DSS settings make any difference. I use standard mode, Average for Lights & Darks, median for Bias. 4) Is the fact that I'm in a high LP area significantly affecting the quality of the images. There are some fantastic DSLR images of the Rosette nebula on this forum, so I think I should probably be getting better results. I am relatively new to AP so apologies in advance for all the questions. Thanks Dec.
  5. Hi guys. Well, I've been giving it some thought for a while now... And while the night skies are shocking at the moment (damn you clouds!!) I've sent my camera away to cheap Astrophotography to have the Baader mod done. I'll finally get some Ha data in my pictures!! Apparently, my 1100D will still be ok in the day time too, using AV mode which is the reason I've chosen this mod. Hope it comes back soon, and the clouds go forth and dissipate so I can post up some new amature photos with a bit more detail!
