First Uranus with the ASI 174MM.

Recommended Posts

I didn't really know where to start with this and it looks pretty bit puny compared to other great shots on here but it's definitely there! C9.25", Powermate 2.5x and ASI 174MM. 90 seconds of SER capture.

Definitely there Chris, it looks about the same as I get using 10"SCT so probably can't expect much better unless you want to buy a 14"SCT :grin:

Nice, its on my list for this month!  hope i get something as good, although will need a bit more optical amplification on by 1200mm 10" i think..

Nice job though you will need something like a RG610 filter and something more like 15-30 minutes of capture to stand a chance of getting any detail.

Hi Freddie, yes I must try harder. I have a Baader IR pass handy somewhere. It gets higher of course over the next few weeks which helps.

Apparently the ASI224MC camera in combination with an IR filter has produced good results.

Nice work. Well done! :) Need to track down Uranus with my new Goto mount.

Hi Freddie is correct, at least 15 mins continues capture, better still 30 mins, though rotation will occur at those lengths. De rotation can be applied though, if anything interesting showed up. No need to worry about that if only banding showed up.  A 610 filter and very long captures will help a lot for any detail.  As Freddie mentioned. Btw my images are heavily resized

 My Capture size is puny too. Good first attempt, its not even easy to find it, be certain it is Uranus and get it on the chip in some occasions

I find the ASI174MM to be fantastic for Lunar work--but the pixels are a little on the big side for my taste when it comes to the planets (even the Moon to tell you the truth).  Big FOV though for the Moon so i live with it.  But as others have said the 224 (or 220) produce BIG planets.  You shots are very nice, and way better than what I can do.

A great image, especially for a 9.25 inch. I have the same scope and I only see Uranus as a faint bluish dot.
