      Another clear evening on Saturday near Preston, Lancashire. Although, it was pretty cold. 

      7 shots into this one (plus one dark), stacked within Photoshop and some level adjustments to brighten it up a little.
      Camera: Canon 600D
      Scope: Skywatcher 127 w/AZ-GTI mount
      ISO: 800
      Shutter speed: 1/400s

      Hi All
      I have recently bought a QHY163C and sold my original square QHY8 which I had had for a few years
      Nothing wrong with the QHY8 and I was reasonably pleased with the stuff I did with it...but itchy fingers/wanting to try something new/set cooling point/ heated window etc tempted me and I have just sold the QHY8
       Most of the Photography I do is deep sky but I have had a dabble at Luna and Jupiter with various webcam type cameras and currently have an Imaging Source DBK21 AU04 (colour)
      What I want to know is how will the QHY163 compare to the DBK21 on planetary and moon pics?
      I have read that the 163 is suitable as a planetary cam as it is capable of high frame rates and 2x2 binning and wondered if anyone had used both types...ie a Largish Chip DSO cam that can also do planetary against a dedicated small chip Planetary cam.
      If I can expect as good or better pics with the 163 then I might as well sell the DBK21
      Unfortunately due to weather etc other than bench testing the QHY163 I havnt used it all on anything yet.
      Thanks
       
      Tom

      Thought I should at least enter this, although I generally stay away from competitions where I am not the only judge .
      This is a shot of Plato plus surroundings, taken with an iPhone 6 Plus handheld at the eyepiece.
      Scope: Tak FC100DC (another 50p in the swear box!)
      Eyepiece: 3 to 6 Nag Zoom at 3mm setting (I think!) giving x246.
      Mount: AZGTi on Gitzo tripod
      Taken using Procam 4 and cropped and processed using PS Express, all on the phone.

      I can't believe how long it is since I have been out with my 'scope!
      This is a quick process of 1000 frames using the best 5% processed in AS2! and then tweaked in PS CS4.
      Scope: Celestron C9.25
      Mount: Celestron CGEM
