  1. From the album: 2015 Various

    recently found a cheap 16ic mono - a little old and kernakkered but does the job :) A stack of 7 or 8 subs of 300s 400s and 500s (kept increasing exposure length once good tracking had been established)

  3. THIS ITEM HAS NOW BEEN SOLD. This listing is for my personal camera (Kayron from Light Vortex Astronomy). It is a QSI 660wsg-8 monochrome CCD camera with the onboard 8-position filter wheel and Off-Axis Guider (OAG). The camera has been extremely well kept and cared for. I am supplying them in the original QSI pelican case, alongside the power adapter (with EU and UK plugs), a new USB cable, the QSI Allen wrench set, the 2" adapter for the camera and the guiding cable. The camera's condition is as-new. The QSI 660wsg-8 requires a single USB connection to control both imaging and the filter wheel. It also cools to -45°C below ambient temperature. The CCD sensor is Sony's ICX694, which is extremely low noise requiring no darks whatsoever and having peak Quantum Efficiency of 77%. The readout noise is also extremely low at only 3.97e as per my own measurement. Its full well capacity is of 17,719e, also as per my own measurement. For more information, please see QSI's website: https://qsimaging.com/products/600-series/qsi-660/ Please note that this camera currently retails at just over £3,700 from UK suppliers, €4,400 from European suppliers or $4,200 from US suppliers. Payment is preferred via bank transfer but PayPal is OK with an extra 2.9% to cover PayPal fees. I'll cover postage to you via tracked Courier. I welcome any questions you may have regarding this listing. Thank you for looking.
  4. Hi all, Since a few days, I'm the proud owner of the asi1600 Pro. Performed some first tests, see: https://youtu.be/hHJBbpNoi2I I used SGP Pro to test cooling and dark frames (2m and 5m) on unity gain settings. Is it ok to use unity gain (139) setting or should I use high dynamic range? Also, this is my first mono. Do I need to take flats/bias frames for each filter separately? And how could I stack either broadband or narrowband images? I'm used to deep sky stacker. Cheers, Wido
  5. Hi, i have a problem with my atik camera, not sure if its just me or the camera but every time i try to combine diferent chanels i get realy washed out pic, almost no color in them, all chanels look almost the same, i checked the efw but it works fine, so i have no idea what i'm doing wrong. please help :) ps. sory for my broken english. pps. here is link for M51 files that i shot with camera, if some one wants to check if they get the same result. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1X1EcBT5WLIe2uSsWM5zYsTNATk80ZgyP Urban
  6. Hi all, just wanted to share my latest attempt at planetary imaging. Things are improving! Location: Cork City, Ireland Camera: Firefly Mono MV Telescope: Skywatcher 200P on Eq5 + Antares 3X Barlow Software: Flycap2 and Autostakkert On Flickr
  7. Selling my full narrowband set up for multiple reasons: I could do with the money and mono just isn't really doing it for me. £1000 Includes: Altair Astro 183m Tec Baader Narrowband filters (Ha, OIII, SII and Clear) ZWO Electronic Mini Filter Wheel All associated cables/plugs T2 extensions to reach 55mm back focus for use with reducers Boxes and cases There is a scratch on the T2-T2 adaptor for the filter wheel and a couple of the labels on the filter boxes have been torn. But otherwise the important parts work perfectly well. Collection or postage via DPD. Buyer to pay postage and PayPal fees. No offers currently accepted, and I would rather not split
  8. I am currently using a standard Canon 1000D DSLR to do my DSO imaging, mainly with a ED80 on an EQ6, with guiding by ST80/QHY5L-II/PHD. The next level is to go for a mono CCD camera, but which one? I really would like advice on whether is worthwhile investing in 2nd hand older tech such as the Atik 16IC-S for ~£200 or the Atik 314L+ for £800 Or is it better to save up and go for something new like the Atik 420L £830 or Atik 414EX £1120? Open to suggestions or any other ideas. Note: I already own a filter wheel loaded with LRGB filters for my planetary stuff, and have capacity available to add in the required Ha/SII/OIII filters for colour images.
  9. Heres my version of the flame nebula, take last month. Taken through my MN190, in h-alpha, the camera was an Atik 314 mono. Did this one last year, but more subs this time improved it from last attempt. 18 x 8 min subs...........
  10. Hello there StarGazers or shall I say CloudGazers! Hahahaha! I'm sorting out an auto guiding rig for when the clouds vanish eventually. I'm using the Raspberry PI Model 2 with Lin_guider. I'm after either the following CCD's: QHY5L-II Mono or ZWO ASL120MM Mono Let me know if you have any spare or have recently upgraded. I was going to go with an Altair Astro mono GPCAM but currently there is no support from lin_guider or Linux drivers as of yet. Thanks all!

    Bi-colour NGC7000 Wall

    From the album: CCD venture

    A h-alpha and OIII shot of the Wall section of NGC7000 aka north america nebula. Processed to resemble the hubble palette colour scheme. ED80 - ATK16HR - Ha clip filter - EQ6 - finderguider 9x50mm PhD2 - photoshop - DSS.
  12. As in the title, I'm wondering if planetary imaging would be feasible with a mono camera (ASI1600MM) and using RGB filters to obtain a colour image or would planetary rotation make this impossible?
  13. RIght....having had a bit of blood rush, went and bought the Starlight Xpress SXVR-694 High QE Mono cam that FLO had put up in the special offers section. Have not got any filters to go with it as yet, is just pure mono cam, so was wondering if anyone had any pointers as to how to take my 1st tentative steps in to the dark world of mono ccd imaging. Have run the numbers through a FoV calculator and at 1x1 binning am getting a resolution of 1.17"/pixel with a FoV of 53.65' x 42.92' Control softwar wise I have no clue, but was thinking of using any bundled software for now until I can get my head around it and also to allow the funds to build up again.

  15. Hi all did a bit yesterdaythe mosaic is not great forgot to crop them first any way the heat in the obsy was red hot 33c i had a few fans running that done got every thing dialed in and started to record,the plan was for 35 mins it was around 17:00hrs, 5'edt cf c gem pier monted dmk 21 mono average 1000 frames @30 fps light edit with ps6 link for the rest http://s473.photobucket.com/user/todd81 ... uly%202013 every thing cooling with the fans the heat was still to much at times it was the quickest run ever 20 quick vids was all i could do heres the mosaic,ishould have cropped these will do later to see all the images click the photobucket link i tried all different settings i was goung to use a green ccd filter but never did in the end a forgot any tips trick or general banter welcome Pat
  16. Just wanted a bit of advice regarding mono imaging. I have a few filters that came with my second hand scope. They are all revelation filters I know these are not top quality but has anyone used these for imaging? I was looking at a light pollution filter found this on eBay https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F370861000046 im sure it’s not perfect but has anyone tried them or similar? at some point in the future I do plan to buy good filters and make a filter wheel but before spending more I want to make the most of what I have unless it’s entirely futile to try
