Hello stargazers, welcome. I had posted a picture yesterday of Uranus that had appeared to show its rings. I am using a Nexstar 4se, a 2x Barlow, and my Neximage Burst Color and capturing hundreds of photos and stacking them for my results. But still had me and others curious to if I were actually seeing the rings of Uranus or maybe just a glare of some sort. So I got back out there this morning, might I note I live in FL where the weather tends to stay hot so clear imaging during this time of year can be difficult, but not impossible as this image that I stacked 150 out of 300 images taken may show that statement holds true..............or I could just be mistaken the object in the image, but all in all I am feeling pretty confident that I have a decently clear image(stacked 150 images) of Uranus, its rings, and one of it's distant moons. It may be necessary to zoom in on my photo in order to see the moon it should be down and to the right of the planet a good distance in relation to the size of planet, I noticed that looking at Uranus in the photo helped bring the moon out just like stargazing in real-time. If anyone can better distinguish what I might have done right or wrong here any help would be appreciated (also forgot to change format save for my images so I am stuck with .bmp and setting it as a download, sorry for any inconvenience.) - - - J47(JAY) uranusringmoon.bmp
After a recent (3rd) scope purchase, I am offering for sale the following setup. I would prefer to sell as a complete lot, however, I will consider splitting items out if there's enough interest. Skywatcher ED80 DS Pro w/Moonlite focuser Altair Lightwave premium 2" dielectric diagonal w/1.25" adapter Skywatcher ED80 aluminium OTA carry case Celestron Nexstar SE mount w/tripod. All items less than 12 months old. Makes a very manageable grab and go setup as it can be lifted fully assembled. The ED80 needs no introduction, it has provided me with some great views. Optics are great in this scope and collimation is spot on. The mount is very sturdy as they're usually supplied with 6/8" SCT's which weigh a lot more than this OTA. The dew shield is vinyl wrapped and flocked inside, this can be easily removed if required. I'll be sorry to see this go but it'll hopefully be replaced with the 120mm Equinox, so I'm sure I'll get over it Located in Caerleon, S. Wales, collection is preferred. REDUCED asking price £750. Note - RDF & EP not included.
