Andromedia Galaxy with Evostar ed80

Recommended Posts

I think there's a lot of data in this image and it's turned out nicely. To me though I am seeing a distinct magenta hue to the galaxy. I'd be more inclined to shift the colour more towards the yellow.

Fabulous image just shows you whats possible with the 80 ED.

Cheers big blue one This is the first time I have imaged the Andromeda galaxy with the evostar one of the main reasons I got it as well but it takes great images on the eq5.

I will up load the .tiff file so people can have a play with the stacked image I tend to go with what to my eyes is ok but bear in mind that I am slightly colour blind so that may be the reason :smiley:

It was fantastic viewing last night black night really clear and only 13 degrees all night best nights viewing for ages and hopefully same again tonight if were lucky :grin:

That is an amazing image - its funny I had had a similar night on the 20th and saw Andromeda properly for the 1st time, only had a webcam so no images except Jupiter. But the weather was as you described - I could clearly see the streak of Milky way and many hundreds of stars that usually get drowned by LP and mist, the view of pleiades through that 9x50mm finder was soooo nice, its a great litlle finderscope and a refreshingly wide FOV.

Muchly impressed with your image,

Regards

And here in Devon it is going to be a clear night again, last night wasn't clear here so the clear weather is moving around a bit. I just realised QM that your good skies were last nights, here it was two nights back.

Who knows it could be all round clear tonight, hoping to get a webcam on Jupiter again. Good luck with the weather everyone.

Regards

Cracking picture QM, really nice.

Lovely colour as always.

Sadly, I have lovely dark skies on Holidays in france, but no telescope :(

Nice to see you making the most of the break in the awful UK weather this summer.

Cheers Chris if you go for about 80 subs with 60 darks flats and bias shots you should have the same amount of data as I managed but not sure what your light pollution is like down that way. It was really lovely dark skies here in Suffolk mind the milky way was shining out really bright right across the sky amazing site. :smiley:

Thanks Mark:) Ipswich isn't half bad after the lights go out at 12pm also I had a SW LP filter screwed onto the front of my T-ring adaptor. It was bliss last night I could see the milky way as well! it looked like thin cloud but know it was definately the milky way!, sat back with a couple of pairs of bino's and scanned the sky whilst my camera was snapping away, happy days mate :)

Oh, don't they do lights out after midnight in Claydon? You might have to grab a clip board and start collecting signatures Squeeky:D

I don't see any difference to the South and East of me either. Honest. The lights in your street might go off, but the impact here is minimal.

Plus I've got Stowmarket and Needham Market that much closer to me, so it looks like dawn in the North; and I'm a whole 20 feet (7 mtrs) from the slip road to the A14. AND the street lamps down my street are on 24/7... AND my neighbours have garden lights plus security lights that every passing microbe triggers on.

Blimey!!! I didn't tidy my plate away from tea time and it's on the floor beside my coffee table which the laptop is currently sitting on. Sitting on that plate, within arms reach, is a field vole busily chomping on the bread crumbs from my toast.

Now is a good time to get the gear so you will be ready for those winter wonders ;)
