  1. Crater Clavius taken on the same night as before, different video, smaller ROI, the best from the night. Saxon 8" Maksutov, SkyWatcher EQ5, ZWO ASI224MC. Captured in SharpCap, stacked in AutoStakkert, wavelets in RegiStax, edited in PaintDotNet. Conditions good from Mandurah, Western Australia. 5505 frames captured from a 3 minute video, 25% (825) best frames stacked.
  2. Jupiter just after 1am this morning, conditions poor. Captured in SharpCap 2.10 with the ZWO ASI224MC, Celestron UV/IR cutoff filter, Tele Vue Powermate 2.5x, focal extension tubes and the Celestron Nexstar 8i SCT. Focal length approximately 5420mm, just under f25 if my calculations are correct. First time imaging with the Powermate. I spent about 2 hours editing the final stacked image of 679 frames from Autostakkert with 1.5X drizzle, Registax for wavelets and some colour correction, noise reduction, RGB Align and final edit in PaintDotNet for further colour correction, some sharpening and a slight reduction in image size. I just couldn't reach good focus last night with or without the Powermate. I have some vids without the Powermate so I'll see how they are later. Fingers crossed for better nights.
  3. I'm starting to image Saturn in the wee hours of the morning when the clouds part. Early days yet but it looks promising. Taken with the Celestron Nexstar 8i, focal extension tubes, ZWO ASI224MC with UV/IR cut filter. A 5 minute video was taken. PIPP for getting the better 5000 frames from a 10000+ frame video, then 1000 of the best frames stacked in Autostakkert. Registax for wavelets and the final edit in PaintDotNet.
  4. I've had some breaks in the clouds and smoke for some nice solar imaging, conditions still not great but I was happy to get these. In a 3 minute video on the laptop screen some good detail comes through a couple of times a minute briefly for a few seconds. The second image is around 2 minutes as cloud covered the sun at the start of the last minute of the video so I had to stop the recording. Captured in SharpCap with the ZWO ASI 224MC and Celestron UV/IR cut off filter in the Celestron Nexstar 8i SCT with focal extension tubes. Aligned and stacked in AutoStakkert, wavelets in RegiStax, edited in PaintDot Net. 15th November 2017 18th November 2017
  5. I managed to get some solar imaging in this afternoon. Today I used the white light solar film filter not the solar glass filter with better results than my previous attempt. Still battling some wind and passing clouds. Location Mandurah Western Australia. First full disc solar image is a single exposure handheld afocal with the Sony Cybershot 14mp compact digital camera near a 40mm Plossl eyepiece in the C8i SCT, The second and third image is with the ZWO ASI225MC stacked and aligned in AutoStakkert, 112 frames with the third image a full res crop. Wavelets in Registax, final edit in PaintDotNet. The forth image is handheld afocal with the Sony Cybershot 14mp compact digital camera showing an eyepiece view with the 40mm Plossl with passing light cloud over the sun, limited editing for this one.
  6. EDIT- I screwed up the date in the title, this was Saturday June 3rd whoops After a crazy few months with life events, I finally jumped back on the horse. Finally figured out how to image with this 224MC camera and actually see surface features. You have to go into RGB channels in fire capture and turn down the red channel to 0 in order to see the disk otherwise you're imaging blind. I received my ASI120MM 3.0 today so I will be using that for now on. AR2661 put on quite the show, I had to cloud dodge to get anything in. I cant decide which inverts I like better, so I decided to share the ones I think turned out best, all of the final runners up are on my flickr. Firecapture, AS!3, ImPPG Cheers from Canada. Thanks for looking and clear skies!!
  7. My main target early this morning was Crater Clavius but I decided to capture an extra video above and below it as conditions seemed good on live view. Detail could be seem on live view of the inside of the Clavius crater walls with brief glimpses of craterlets and small flows on the crater floor. This image is a vertical 3 pane stitch. Saxon 8" Maksutov, SkyWatcher EQ5, ZWO ASI224MC. Captured in SharpCap, stacked in AutoStakkert, wavelets in RegiStax, stitched in Image Composite Editor, edited in PaintDotNet. Conditions good from Mandurah, Western Australia.
  8. The weather has not been kind to us here in the South West of Western Australia and when there has been clear skies, seeing conditions have not been great. But I'm still at it! Here are a handful of lunar images that I've captured this month. October 1st. Hand held afocal, Celestron Nexstar 8i SCT with an Unbranded 40mm Plossl and a Fujifilm 10mp A170 compact digital camera. October 4th (I think). Celestron Nexstar 8i SCT with the ZWO ASI224MC with Celestron UV/IR cut off filter. Captured in SharpCap, aligned and stacked in AutoStakkert3, wavelets in RegiStax6 and edited in PaintDotNet. October 5th Harvest Moon. This is what the camera spat out, I didn't add colour. We've had some fires further down south so quite fitting I thought. October 8th. First light with the Antares 6" refractor. Prime focus with the Sony a5000, ISO 200, 1/200 sec. and finally a moonbow. I've captured these before but I they've never seen them this close to the moon. A couple of nights before this it was very noticeable by eye but by the time I went inside to get all the gear out, set it all up, it was all over. I had to wait for 3 hours for it to come back just to get this shot on this particular night. I have edited and enhanced this photo slightly Taken with the Sony a5000 with stock 18-55mm zoom lens at 55mm, ISO 800, 1/8th sec, f5.6.
  9. Captured this afternoon in Mandurah, Western Australia. Taken with the ZWO ASI224MC and the Celestron 8i SCT with focal extension tubes and white light solar film filter. A two minute video was captured with the final image being cropped and having 10%, 112 frames aligned and stacked in Autostakkert 3, wavelets in Registax 6, edited in PaintDotNet.
  10. I met a couple of fellow amateur astronomers last weekend and had an overnight stay about 2 hours north of Perth Western Australia. Had an great night talking about astronomy, telescopes and imaging. I imaged a couple of planets and a couple of larger DSO's in the middle of nowhere with dark skies. I used my Saxon 8" Mak which I've had for quite a while now and only used it a couple of times for some visual. Collimation was slightly out and I adjusted as best I could. Captured in SharpCap with the ZWO ASI224MC, processed in PIPP, AutoStakkert, Registax and finished in PaintDotNet.
  11. This 460 frame stacked image was from the same night as my previous Saturn post but Jupiter was captured a few hours earlier, conditions were not as good but some reasonable detail came through. The GRS starting to show with the smaller Oval BA further around to the left. Captured with the ZWO ASI224MC with a Celestron UV/IR Cutoff filter in Sharpcap and the Celestron Nexstar 8i SCT. PIPP used to get the better frames, Autostakkert to stack the best frames, wavelets in Registax and finished in PaintDotNet.
  12. Saturn from the 23rd of June 2018. Captured in SharpCap, stacked in AutoStakkert, wavelets in RegiStax, edited in PaintDotNet. Saxon 8" Mak, SkyWatcher EQ5, ZWO ASI224MC with Tele Vue 2.5x Powermate. Conditions poor to average from Mandurah, Western Australia.
  13. Jupiter around midnight on June the 2nd. A 2 minute 30 second video was captured in SharpCap. The best 8% of frames aligned and stacked in AutoStakkert, wavelets in RegiStax, edited in PaintDotNet. Saxon 8" Mak, SkyWatcher EQ5, ZWO ASI224MC with Tele Vue 2.5x PowerMate. Imaged from a suburban backyard in Mandurah, Western Australia. Conditions poor.
  14. Jupiter and two moons from the 18th of May. Captured in SharpCap, stacked in AutoStakkert, wavelets in RegiStax, edited in PaintDotNet. Orion Starmax 90mm Mak, SkyWatcher EQ5, ZWO ASI224MC with a Meade 2x Telenegative. Imaged from a suburban backyard in Mandurah, Western Australia. Conditions poor to average.
  15. Saturn from last night. A 6 minute video was taken around 4am with the ZWO ASI224MC in SharpCap and Celestron Nexstar 8i SCT with focal extension tubes. PIPP used to get the best 3000 frames and arrange in quality order, stacked 600 of the best frames in Autostakkert with 1.5x Drizzle, waveletts in Registax and final edit in PaintDotNet. To reveal the moons which were not visible I bumped up levels to lighten the background, then magic wand each moon, cut them out and paste each one in to a copy of the original image. I think I have 4 of Saturn's moons which is a first for me.
