I am just about to buy an ED80 off a nice chap but would like to pair it with a 0.85x Skywatcher ED80 focal reducer.
Does anyone have on for sale around the South East of England?
It feels like it's been an absolute age...the weather just has not cooperated...
Anyway, this is first light for my ASI 2600MC Pro camera and why not go for a composite image right off the bat?! I've always wanted to capture these two nebulae together in the same image and the larger sensor of the new camera enabled me to do this in just 2 panels, which was great!
I've taken a number of NGC7000 images before, including in narrowband with more details, but something about this true colour image just wows me all over again.
Taken on warm summer nights in astronomical twilight. APP was used for all pre-processing, including combining the panels. Captured in Voyager and post-processed in Pixinsight. 9 hours total integration.
Full details here
Thanks for looking!
The Helix Nebula (NGC 7293), also known as the "Eye of God" is a planetary nebula located in the constellation Aquarius. One of the closest planetary nebulae to Earth being 655 light years distant.
This image was exposed through a 8" SCT at 1280mm focal length (f6.3) using a QHY268M astro camera, tracked and autoguided on a Hypertuned CGEM mount.
The total exposure time spent on this image was 19 hours and 5 minutes worth of H-Alpha, OIII, SII and H-Beta subs.
This image is mostly based on the HOO color palette but as a bit of difference and an experiment, I mixed in SII to the red channel and H-Beta to the blue channel before color balancing the image to the photo shown.
Noobie here, I just purchased the Celestron 80mm travel scope for my first telescope and saw this and I want to see if anyone can tell me what this is. My first thought was that this is a supernova, but I highly doubt that. I’m located in NorCal and was pointing my telescope somewhere between Jupiter and Saturn. I had a 10mm eyepiece and cant remember if I had a 2x Barlow lens on or not, and took this video through my iPhone with the phone attachment. There is lots of light pollution around me and I couldn’t see this with my naked eye, only through the telescope. If anyone can please tell me what this might be I’d love to know!
