Hi folks,it' been another great night up at Drumroamin campsite...skies are lit up with stars from horizon to horizon with the Milky way strewn across the sky?.

I managed 20 odd 4min subs of the Soul Nebula and now running some on the Flame Nebula and Horsehesd but can see the glow of the rising moon low in the east.

I had a great session with my 15x70 Helios stellar binos,just scanning the sky hunting numerous messier objects which was mesmerising just taking in the vast amount of stars which you just dont get from suburban locations.

I think i'll leave the mount running thru till early morning to catch a look at Jupiter and Mars before sunrise.

So glad to be here under pristine skies and warming up for the spring SP in March nicely.

Steak & haggis pie nearly done in oven so goodluck and see you all in march.

I'll try and post images in due time.

Kenny

      Hey,
      I live in the NE of Scotland and have recently been bit by the Astrophotography bug!  I bought a Star tracker a few months back, but only started using it 3 weeks ago (due to crap weather).  The images posted are what I've managed to get with my Fujit XT2 and my various lenses.  Only just started stacking in DeepSkyStacker and trying to stretch / edit in Photoshop.  I've recently gotten the 45 day trial on Pixinsight so will be looking to try out editing in that.
       
      Looking forward to learning a bunch from everyone!

      Hi,
       
          Looking for a 12" DOB (or larger) which can be transported to Prestwick, Ayrshire. Any brand, as long as the telescope is optically sound and in good working order. I'm a reliable buyer who has bought and sold on this site before.
       
      Thanks,

      Hi we hold meet ups in and around the North end of the  Galloway Dark Sky Park.  Dalmellington, Loch Doon and other place about Ayrshire.  I will post any public meets if anyone wishes  to come along.  Also if anyone is in this neck of the woods and needs some local info we would be glad to help.
