  1. Here's my quicky at M82 SN2014J, two nights ago and the only clear night for ages but quite gusty so the 200p what an excellent sail. 16 x 180s Lights10 x 180s Darks800iso200p HEQ5 Guided in phdProcessed in Nebulosity & CS6

  3. Hi guys, Bit of a lurker here but time for a first post as I've scoured every corner of the internet and cannot find the exact info I'm after. My style of shooting is more landscape astrophotography over deep space and I really want to be able to photograph Orion using a wide angle lens (eg. Samyang 24mm) on either a Canon 6D or a Sony A7SII and pick up the nebulosity. I have a tracking mount (Star Adventurer Mini) and am familiar with stacking images. I was wondering if a light pollution filter would help my cause here as I've read they can help boost nebulosity. Started to get my head in a twist with all the various filters and different types of nebulosity. I really don't want to modify either camera as I use them both for daytime landscape work too. The Samyang 24mm has a 77mm thread on the front, would something like a Hoya Red Intensifier be beneficial to my aims? Is there a better front threaded filter available for what I want? Or is a clip-in filter better? Any help much appreciated, Alyn
  4. Hello, I just got a little clear weather and thought I would try out the Mesu 200. If you use plate solving to find targets do you have to sync the Mesu 200 in your planetarium software accurately? I read that you have to sync with a planetarium program. Can you just sync and be tracking at a sidereal rate? I'll be using ACP and don't plan on using the SKY X other than for the telescope sync function. The mount is moving faster than sidereal and the stars are moving quick on the frame and focus screen of Nebulosity. Not enough to blur but you can see movement at the 1 sec I have the camera set to take pictures. What I get in Nebulosity is that after every 1 second exposure the stars move and I can't do a fine focus before they move off the small fine focus screen. I know that I'm doing something wrong. Thanks for any help. Mike
  5. I have a QHY9 mono CCD and a CFW2 wheel. I tried using nebulosity V3 to control the rig, but soon realized I needed a script to run the wheel. Would someone please know how to obtain one?
  6. Hi Guys, Off late I had been trying to find ways to fire my DSLR from my laptop and downloaded a couple softwares. Yesterday i felt like doing astronomy while it was raining cats and dogs outside, so to make up for it I simply opened nebulosity v3 and found that my camera is listed. Additionally I found that it could be binned 2x2 and 1x1. I hope to make use of this feature after skies clear. Down here the southern milky way is quite high up in the sky during the summer months. Has anyone used the bin feature through any such software? Any advice would be good. Thanks and Regards,
  7. Can Nebulosity and Ph.D operate simultaneously and share a single camera. Running Win 10.

  10. Last night I got to put my full spectrum DSLR to it's first test, one obvious target was m42. I did rough polar align & didn't even collimate the scope, just wanted to get straight to testing the new camera. I haven't done any editing nor stacking, this is something I will be experimenting with in the following weeks. I also collected some data (20 lights) on the Pleiades & NGC869 double star cluster and the star Capella, which I will experiment on & play around with. It was recommended to me to get a coma corrector, I haven't yet. After I've played around a bit with the equipment & learned why I need it, I might get one. Anyway, here's M 42 Orion Nebula, 1x 30s exposure sub unedited - ISO 800. I was extremely impressed when the image popped up on my PC screen, the camera is excellent!
  11. Hello to all, Can somebody let me know what to do if I get the following warning message? The frames were captured with Nebulosity and normalized, but after selecting the first alignment star, Nebulosity asks me for the CIM threshold, and then I get the error. I am doing something wrong? I tried using Nebulosity 2 and also Nebulosity 3.1.8. The camera is a color Atik 314L+. The number of frames stacked is 12.
  12. Quite often I will start an image and not get time to finish it before the telescope being used has to move on. That is the case with this one, which is just 3 test exposures with a small refractor and Atik 11000. Usually the data just sits on my hard drive, going nowhere, but by chance I opened one of the exposures in Pixinsight and hit CTRL+A, and the auto-stretch feature revealed a bit more detail than I expected, so I just stacked the three images with no rejection to see what came out. Originally my intention was to frame a shot of the three main stars in Orion's belt, but the nebulosity and position of the horsehead nebula did not lend itself to a nicely composed picture. I definitely haven't gone for "pretty" here, but rather, with a drastic stretch of the outlying regions around the Horsehead, the image makes clear the density of the Hydrogen clouds in the area. We also get an idea of the amount of stars that get filtered out by comparing local areas within the image. Oddly enough, despite a personal propensity for pareidolia, and having imaged this area extensively for quite a while now, and even having a small contribution to this image https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap101005.html , I have never before noticed the looming Giraffe in the background. I shall look out for it in future though Tim
