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.

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.

      I am thinking on grinding my own lightweight mirror (first f4 16", later f4 24"). The lightest and cheapest option is to get a thin blank and slump it in a decent kiln.
      Anyone has longer term experiene with slumped mirrors? Overall doesn't seem to be more work than a normal (not pregenerated) blank.
      Do I have to grind the backside as in case of normal flat back mirrors to avoid astigmatism? How do people support a convex back while grinding? Does it make sense to grind a hole in the middle for additional support? I am remotely considering a convertible Newtonian/Cassegrain system anyway...

      Purchased the Orion Astroview 6 three years ago.  Found out later that I could not attach my Canon EOS XTi and obtain focus.  Everything I saw online required sawing and drilling the OTA.  That makes the scope a single purpose telescope.  After reviewing the primary mirror holder I created a holder that moved the mirror 25 mm.  This way I can keep the scope ready for visual observing and sell later if I desire.  If you're interested in saving a few dollars in this hobby check out the link below.

      So I picked up a classic... a 1970's - 80's edmund optics f6 150mm newtonian...

      ... like this one but mine has a different mount. It was cheap. Very good condition. The focuser is pants. The mechanics of the secondary holder is (IMHO) brilliant and apparently the primary is 1/10th wave.
      But its f6 and I trhink I'd rather swap it out for a faster synta f5 mirror. .  The thing is its a one shot job bc to make the f5 mirror work I will have to saw off a good few cm from the barrel of the scope.
      So the question is: Is a high quality f6 mirror better than a faster synta f5 mirror for wide deep space astrophotograhy?
       
      All comments gratefully received. 😉

      Skywatcher 150/1200 f8 planetary Newtonian.
      Bought this originally intending to set up a planetary rig but circumstances call for sale.
      Will come with eyepieces and a collimation eyepiece. Not used by myself and has seen very little use. Mirrors in good condition
      Collection only

      Hi, i..m on Stargazers Lounge for long time ago, but now i have a new scope at last!!! The scope is a Skywatcher classic200p dobsonian, and i received it just one month ago. I.m really happy with it. For now, i.m using the stock eyepieces that come with the scope, a 25mm and 10mm super plossl 52. Yesterday i was received a Celestron Omni barlow, and that expands my magnification range. I posted some pics with my set. 
      Congratulations to Stargazers lounge team, this is one of the best sites to learn about astronomy and equipment. 
      Besf regards to everybody
