Jupiter and Mars conjunction this morning a stunning sight and worth the freezing temperatures to see.

I agree Damian. Was out with the dog at 6:30 and it was the brightest I’d seen Mars

Cracking image Adam, detail is excellent. I love this target, definitely one of my favourites.

Bet it was cold at Winscar last night. I did a bit at home, left kit running all night and it was covered in frost this morning when I packed up.

Yeah I ended up packing up as guide camera and scope had their lenses iced over in the end which was bit of a disappointment but still it was a good night out and as always, had great company :-) I'm hoping to add some Ha to it the next time that its clear (fingers crossed thats sometime relatively soon)

So last night was incredibly cold with everything completely icing over, but managed to get my first shot of rosette nebula :-) 7B868031-B1EC-4D07-AF65-DFD716DEECA4.tiff

With the last 2 clear nights I've managed to gather quite a lot of data on NGC1893 and IC410 the tadpole nebula. Heres my attempt at combining 25nr each of 600s of HA, Sii and Oiii (about 12.5hrs in total).

Thanks guys,

haha Ben no Hubble just lucky this object works very well in Ha and is very high in the sky at present. The tadpoles are present even in the original subs. The processing took me a few hours. I followed a few online tutorials but was mostly just a case of trial and error (mostly error ?).

Some stonking images coming through from you guys of late. I just can't seem to combine being off work with good clear nights. :hmh:

I hit Rosette last Sunday night too - whole scope froze over apart from the mirrors (thank God for heater straps). Sensor hit -10c at 3am!!

      Hi all.. 
      New to astronomy,  bought my son a cheap telescope for Xmas and have enjoyed viewing with him so just bought myself a 250mm dob. Pleased to say it arrived today so started off with a bit of moon viewing.  Must admit I've had a lovely evening! 
      Can see me investing quite a bit of time and money into this. Look forward to hearing from some of you members as time goes on.

      Hello everyone. I've been lurking here for a while, thought I'd sign up and say hello. My name's Tom, I am serious but you can call me Shirley if you like.
      I've had a telescope (skywatcher 150 dob) for about 7 years, it saw some use before I went to university to study physics, but I left it at home. (Naively thought there wouldn't be a great deal to see from the city.) It hadn't seen much use since, until January this year when I took it out under a nearly full moon to show my then lass the Orion neb and the Andromeda galaxy. Since then I must've been making up lost time because I've been out in the garden almost every clear night, and I've found my collection of astro bits and bobs has been growing at an alarming rate.
      So I think it's about time I dropped by to say Hi
