SECOND ATTEMPT

Recommended Posts

Got the camera perfectly focussed tonight(yippie) i was just trying it out to get used to the Camera esp as it was cloudy most of the time. But it clear a little afterwards and i got the mount aligned ok and took some images.

This is deff the best of them, as you can see it was rather ORANGE with light pollution and Clouds. 4 frames stacked each frame at ISO 1600(wow does this camera perform well at that) esp of 3 mins each. First pic is just a stack no processing and second is processed in Image Plus and Photoshop(anyone fancy a go at the orange one?)

Hi Rog,

The orion pic is a crop :shock: the orignal was a huge FOV but street lights and clouds spoiled it somewhat so i cropped orion out :clouds1: couldnt get a longer exposure due to the clouds etc etc last night i was imaging through clouds most of the time :clouds1: cant wait too see what i get under better conditions should be great!

In the first image i have captured a Nebula no idea what it is (Unprocessed pic you can make it out top of the pic to the right) maybe a cluster but it looks like a nebula to me?

Thanks

James

I am expecting to see great things from this set up.

If your first shots are anything to go by.

Heavy processing to rid the clouds and LP..

looking very good there James i like the wide field on these pics and it begs for some serious wide field deep sky images , would be nice if you get a clear run try M31 i,m sure you can crack it first light, as long as you can deal with the light pollution , James is it possible to use filters with the camera, if so i would say get a CLS filter they are great for galaxies,

Cheers

Rog
