  4. Hi, This probably old hat to everyone, but I found out about a setting in iOS 10 that allows you to do a full red screen; I know astronomy apps have a night vision mode but I find the keyboard is normal light in skyguide, or else I accidentally press the home key. It also lists a shortcut to set the red screen via pressing the home key three times in quick succession. Anyway, the details are in the link below. https://ios.gadgethacks.com/how-to/keep-your-night-vision-sharp-with-ios-10s-hidden-red-screen-0173903/ Dave
  5. Hi all, Any recommendations for very dim red head-torches? So far, in the brief amount of observing time that the clouds have allowed, I've used my Petzl with it's single red LED. It seems really glare-y tho, so I'm curious as to how people get around this. Thanks, m

  7. Hi guys, so I finally got my HEQ5 PRO mount to track correctly and I decided to take a bunch of photos of the Orion Nebula(or at least part of it). I took as many photo's as I could with my Canon 1000D DSLR connected up at prime focus. I used 1600 ISO (max), 400 ISO and 100 ISO all with a shutter speed of 30" I have found these red, green and blue squiggles I think are called 'hot pixels' in all of my photo's after I've used DeepSkyStacker to merge them. They may be hard to see on here but in Photoshop they are everywhere Could someone please explain to me what is causing this and what can I do to avoid it in the future please. I feel like I've ruined a perfect night out! Or maybe there is a way to fix this? I was using a Skywatcher 200p for these. ISO 1600 30" ISO 400 30" ISO 100 30" Thanks, guys!
  8. For sale, this as new red dual speed Moonlite focuser. Bought recently in the FLO overstock sale for £260 plus shipping. Decided I didn't actually need it after all! This one has the SW flange for the ED80/100/120. Looking for offers around £260 including shipping. PM me if interested. I'll take it to SGL11 too if it hasn't sold by then, £250 if collected from there.
  9. I have just sold some books so thought I'd treat myself to one of these filters. I have wanted one for a while to see if it provides sharper detail on the moon and easier splits on things like Sirius when seeing is poor.It may go nowhere but will be interesting to see what it's like. They seem quite uncommon used so I should be able to sell for not too much loss if it turns out to be less effective than I hoped. There does not seem to be much about them online for visual although some planetary imagers use them to cut through bad seeing. I'll report back when it arrives but I suspect it's not in stock where I bought it so might be a week or two before it comes. Cheers Shane
  10. Hi all, Not sure whether I am expecting too much but I chose to try M103 tonight given it has a number of very red stars in and around it. I am using a 314L+ mono with filter wheel. I took 5x120secs 1x1 for each of the 4 filters which I figured was plenty to capture the colours (although L adds nothing as you can imagine). I attach the picture below and as you can see there isn't the deep red you see in other images of M103 I have seen. I popped each stacked master into the respective channel and aligned the best I could. Am I expecting too much or have I gone wrong or missed a step? Many thanks Ig
  11. NOW SOLD This was purchased in the FLO clearance sale but I had a change of plans so it is no longer needed. It is in perfect condition, unused and comes with the Skywatcher flange for ED80/100 and 120. It is the dual speed model in red with brake. Looking for £220 collected at SGL11 or £230 posted. PayPal fees paid or bank transfer please. Cheers, Stu
