I'd like a complete beginners guide to AP if anyone can help. Seeing an expert in action might give me an idea if I can do it or not.

If by complete beginners guide you mean a guide by a complete beginner, then I'm your man :). just watch me and do the exact opposite

Hello Scott

Thank you for the invite, you too are most welcome to visit an old Manxman in my little old van. 

Just bought an second hand Canon, its a eos 400, not got a clue as how to use it yet, only got it a couple of days ago, so its a case of read the manual when I get there and hope I can turn the flash off......

Best regards, Hadyn - IOM

You're welcome to pop over to "me hut" and I'll give you a run-through of the setup and capture process. Might have to pretend its dark/clear though :D or I can visit if you fancy learning the process with your own kit.

The 130 will be on display again for anyone interested in modding their Skywatcher newt focusers to a purely threaded solution.

I'm always happy to talk about astro imaging at great length and in intricate detail, so do feel free to get me started and I might be able to help a little bit!

See you there.

Gav.

I'll join any class for Imaging/processing tips, if there are any spaces?

Did I see an image of yours in S@N a few months back PhotoGav?

Andromeda?

Yes, that was me! It's been a bit of an imaging drought over the last couple of months since then though :mad:

Look forward to meeting you at the Uranium Masterclass.

 Well, Uranium235, If you can move my images halfway toward your example picture I will be over the moon.

It certainly will be possible for you to do it with your own NB data after a bit of practice, given that you have met the prerequisite conditions: Best focus possible, lots of data depth, a flat background, no hot pixels and as little noise as possible.
