Rather than spread my pics from last week over 3 posts, I've uploaded an album, SGL7 Night + Day Shots. Anybody that features is welcome to a high-res copy, just PM me your email address.

Cheers,

Jon

Nice set of pictures John, wonderful colour and captures the spirit of last weeks SGL star party. - I'm sure Kev was making us think he was actually capturing video of the sun when in reality he was catching up on Corination Street or Eastenders with his head under that cover... :(

Nice set on Tony... made it look like he actually knew what he was doing :( (only kidding Tony :) )

Well if you were playing "Guess which plonker forgot to bring a guidecam?" and you guessed in my direction, then you get first prize :s

So here is one of three unguided results I managed. This one represents 3 hours of rotation. I'm guessing that the bright star entering view top left is Polaris.

But Peter, seriously, that Orion in the Wye is absolutely corking!

Cheers

Great photos Jon. And I really must do some star trails pics. That's a nice one Tim. Was that a set of subs or one 3-hour pic? (I'm still new to this!)

I had a great weekend, thanks Daz; and thank you Tim for your help on Friday.

Only managed 3 pics. Not too happy with the focus on my Nikon D3100 - very soft in general. It seems to be common problem with that particular model. I have a few tweaks to try though. Still, not bad results considering it's all new to me.

Afocal, 200p, EQ5 and RA drive.

This is M51 from the Sunday night.

1.5hrs L, 30mins each RGB and Ha.

Best M51 I've done to date. I'm pleased with how it looks for the subs time.

Thats awesome Spikey beautiful picture, oh & thanks for setting up my scope, I'm just back to the drawing board with it at home although I'm a lot closer in getting it set right then I ever was before, I might see about getting one of those illuminated eyepieces to see if that helps.

I only managed some quick moon pics before the laptop battery died on the Monday night, I did try to stitch them together in paintshop pro but it was having none of it, might be due to the laptop not having enough memory.

If anyone wants to try & stitch them together than feel free, I know its not complete but seeing it as the crescent shape would be nice.

I'm not sure which program Malc would have used,but I use Imerge for this sort of thing.

Imerge is free and does work very well indeed!

You can get it>>here<<
