NGC4438 : The Eyes Galaxies Field with G4-16000

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

This is the first lights of my ASA 12"N f/3.62 (purchased in 2007) with my Moravian G4-16000 CCD camera using one KAF-16803 chip of 36mm x 36mm (4K x 4K).

The adjustments, collimation, ASA OK3-Z pression screws, asked a lot of attention.

For a precise collimation, i use the CATSEYE XL & XLKP kit.

This is the first 3hrs of exposures taken the last weekend in one night. The second night was too windy unfortunately.

That is absolutely amazing and definitely a standard to aspire too.

An amazing look of a spectacular view field with delicate details.

 

Question:the CCD acquisition informations are collected in a database software or its just a (let's say) excel sheet formatted?

Thank you so much. Optimized this instrument with a huge CCD chip is very hard, but after a lot of effort the results arrive. I wait a clear sky to continue this image and to take the RGB frames.

About the CCD Acquisition information, i created it with MS Word. Here in France, several amateurs has created similar things but not clear to me. I created mine with the essential information.

 

Thanks once again.

The full 4k res version really is a stunner.

Have you tried catching the M87 jet? Could show up well at this focal length, although I think you may require quite short exposures to prevent it from getting lost in the core.

Thank you all ?

I hope to continue this image and to take short exposure to see if i can show the M87 jet. Of course i keep you posted about it.

Thanks.

This is one only 5min. of sub exposure processed.

Can you confirm that is the M87 jet ?

Wonderful result and a tremendous setup.

Where are you in France? I'm in the south east, 05.

Hello Olly,

Thank you. ?

I live in the Loiret (45). I am 5km of Pithiviers and 40km from Orleans, 90km from Paris.

My G4-16000 is optimized for my Televue NP101is for large fields. Now, i optimize it for my ASA Newtonian.

      With reluctance I am looking to sell my 200mm aperture f5 Helios Newtonian OTA. (Helios is a brand that became incorporated into Skywatcher - this closely resembles Skywatcher OTAs)
      The Helios is offered with single speed rack & pinion focuser, tube rings, 22 to 1.25" adaptor, dovetail bar and grab handle for £99 o.n.o.  In good condition except that the dovetail bar appears to be discoloured by exposure to sunlight.
      I have not used the telescope for many months and with a persistent problem in my right arm my enthusiasm for moving heavy kit around has diminished.
      Buyer to collect from North Bucks.
       
      If I sell the OTA I will be looking to dispose of its accessories:
      9x50 Skywatcher straight finder - in excellent condition except that the small plastic dust cap is missing.
      Cheshire collimator, boxed, as new.
      Helical fine focuser, range 10mm, ID 1.25", screws into 2"adapter.
      3x Datysun Barlow, as new, boxed.
      Widefield eyepiece, 22mm f.l., 30mm body (note not 1.25")  with built in focus, works well with this telescope.
      Plastic collimation cap (no cost).
      This bundle would cost around £114 new - offered if bought with scope at £75 o.n.o.

      This one didnt quite go as planned, i think i might have tried to overcorrect for alot of things during post processing, but i might as well share it with you guys anyways. Then again, perhaps i've just stared too much at it during processing.. Anyways, i hope you like it

      So,after observing in my backyard for a month + (visible targets only in orion taurus auriga and monocerus) , i ve decided to start observing from my front yard.Now ,i see a whole new sky Ursa Major Leo, Virgo and more.A week ago , was the first time i saw a galaxy.To be exact,m81,m82 and m64.I cannot describe what i felt when i took a look throught the eyepiece,i was amazed.Even though they were just faint fuzzies with no detail whatsoever,it was magestic. Then, i tried to observe m51 and m101,with no results.I ve read reports that m51 is a quite bright and obvious galaxy .If so,why cant i see it? Also,can anybody give me advice as to what to observe in and near ursa major?I ve made my own star charts for M81 M82 and M64 and now need more to further advance my Views of the messier objects.Thanks

      Hi,
      I am going to buy my first telescope and I can't make up my mind with the focal ratio. I have seen this two option within my budget
      Skywatcher 130/1000 eq2 with a f/7.7 ratio
      Meade 130 Polaris EQ with 650 mm focal length and f/5 ratio.
      I read that a f/7.7 would be better to watch planets while f/5 would be better to watch galaxies and nebulae and will also give a brighter image.
       
      As I am new and never looked through a telescope like those I don't know which to choose. The idea of looking at galaxies really excited me but I also wanted to see planets such as Jupiter or Saturn and it's moons, and at the moment I am not considering photography as I still need to get familiar with the telescope but in the future I would love to take some photos so brightness could be important.
      My question is how much difference would I noticed between these two focal ratio when I looked at planets and galaxies. Would I get a much better view of Saturn with a f/7.7 or not really?
      Thanks in advance for your advices

      Started this Saturday night. I love these galaxies and been wanting to image them a long time. 
      So far, only 30 x 60s L and 10 x 60s RGB. 
      C11 with focal reducer (1760mm), ASI183mm Pro. Astrodon filters. Mesu 200. Pixinsight.
      Thanks for looking
      Dave
