Recommended Posts

Hi all,

here are two from the weekend these are the first images I have taken with my SW ED80 pro and 0.85 SW reducer.I was really pleased with the result what a great little scope.I just did a quick M42 at the end of the session only 10 lights of 35secs.

California nebula was 30 lights at 200secs 20 flats 20 darks and 20 bias.All comments welcome

Lovely images Andy - maybe it's my laptop but AstroBin is quite slow to download the images though

Yes your right it is slow.I am unsure how to edit the post to change the link to photobucket

Hi, this is Salvatore Iovene, the founder of AstroBin. I just wanted to quickly jump in to tell you that AstroBin is not *slow* per se. But the image linked where in full resolution, so naturally they are slower to download than the scaled down version posted to photobucket.

That's why I recommend linking to the image page with the technical card: it has a scaled down version of the image, and people can still click through to access the full resolution.

Hope this helped!
