Here's The big man from a couple of nights ago, I'm desperate ti get a bit more info out of it but I've started with AS2 and it's pretty good software.

Would love to have a go with a 4x or 5x Powermate but could do with some motor driven focusing.

Thanks for looking, other stuff is on my flickr site.

Hi, it's just the 200p and it's probably one of the better planetary images i've tank with that scope. I was using a Revelation 2.5 barlow which isn't the greatest but not bad, I managed to stack about 1600-1900 frames per RGB channel but I think that using Autostakert @ it the key. A great bit of software for aligning, I then adjust the wavelets in Registax and follow this link for Photoshop finishing.

Hope that this is of some help

Great image!! What camera did you use??

Hi Thanks, using the ASI120mm with manual RGB filter wheel, it's proving to be a great little camera.

Hi, I thought I'd try a revision of this image so i've added another Red layer for luminosity and I think it"s brought out a touch more detail.
I thought I'd order an Astronomik IR pass filter to see how that works.
Left is the original and Right is Revision.
Thanks

      Hi,
      having started with a 130P on an eq mount.I wanted something with more light gathering on a alt-azimuth mount. I didn't want to go down the Dob route although that would have been a lot easier and cheaper.🙄
      So I have now got a 200P on a Skytee on a Manfrotto tripod.
      My question is why do all the pictures I have seen of this set up have the scope side mount rather than the top mount.
      Is it just a question of weight if you also add counterweights under the top mount? I understand the recommended max weight is 10kg per mount although some places say 15kg.
      As it is a lot easier to mount the scope on the top mount than the side one (I nearly dropped it on the first attempt) and it seems counterintuitive to have the weight of the scope hanging off the side mount instead of sitting on top of the top one.
      Thanks.

      Looking to buy either an NEQ6 or a HEQ5 mount.  Im in Cheshire but dont mind paying for delivery/postage.  Would consider a good imaging scope or setup too.
       
      Thanks.
