Hello,

Just got a new (secondhand) EOS 6D and decided that the area around Pleiades is very good test :) The first light was ruined by clouds (no surprises here) but last weekend was way better. Clear sky, no wind, temperature around -13C...

So here is my image named "Ice and Fire" :) Very busy part of the sky between the famous Pleiades and California.

Details in short: 6D (unmodified), 51x180s, ISO 2000, 10 sky flats, no darks, Samyang 85mm at f/4, EM-200, no guiding, APT dithering (direct mount control), APT, PI.

Beautiful image Ivo. I do like these large expanses of sky in such depth. Puts things into a bit of context.

Great to see an image from you, Ivo! -13, lol - no cooling needed then... There's a little bit of distortion in the corners but otherwise very nice!

Thank you very much Gav, Louise, Danski!

Louise, the lens is quite good with my 550D, but looks that full frame is too much for it (or for that sample)... I had to crop the part that was not for showing... The temperature dropped quite a lot that nigh, it was close to my record -15C :D

Thank you Laser and Paul!

Paul, you are right :) This area is so interesting that one can easily make 5x5 mosaic and still wanting to include more :D

      Having upgraded from canon 1000D to Nikon D5300  how do users of the 5300 find it for Astro I will be using with APT , and how do you take flats as I can’t use Av mode as there is nothing in tools menu to choose no lens ,  do you use in manual mode  and look at histogram ? .

      This evening/morning I am having some problems getting my unmodified canon 600d to live view via apt. One hell of a palaver trying to get focused. Has any one suffered similar problems? Was working fine yesterday, tonight a bit of a disaster all round. I am running the feed for the guide camera down the same USB cable via a non powered hub, the camera works fine during the data gathering phase but no dam preview. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      I use the Celestron AVX mount and I also use Astrophotography Tool when imaging.
      When I start my imaging session I will undertake a two star alignment then move to my target and THEN platesolve to ensure I have the object centred.
      My question is do I need to bother with two star alignment (or any other Celestron alignment for that matter)? 
      My thought would be to Polar align then take a shot of Polaris and plate solve this, sync the result to the mount then “Goto” from there. The only issue I have is when you switch the mount on and enter time/date etc it asks you to do a star alignment so how do I ignore this or do I do just that, ignore it!
      Sorry for the rambling question.
      john
