Hello to all!

Just posting some of the images I took recently!

(Total first attempt from someone who can't even hold a camera properly)

I was out to conduct a public overnight sky observation event, which was the last event before 6 months of monsoon. For a lot of time, we had cloud cover too!

These images don't include much of editing more than just some basic stuff in cellphone. I forgot to take the photos in RAW so either way I can't do much!

Quite happy with the first attempt. Will improve even more in next season!

Nikon 5300, with the basic 18-55 lens.

Any suggestions appreciated!

Thanks!

Lovely set there mate. My favourite is the first one with the scope.

If I had to wait 6 months for the rain to stop I'd give up and study diving :)

Dave.

      Hi all I’m just looking for advice on upgrading telescop. At the minute I’ve got a Meade ETX 125 and had some good views with it so far. Mainly Moon Planets and brighter clusters. However I wanted to see more Galaxies and nebulas which is a much to ask for a F15 scope. 
      im looking at second hand Celestron/Meade 9.25” f10 s With maybe a focal reducer and Sky-Watcher 10”-12” F4.9 dobsonians which is the better choice?

      I sell my refurbished Nikon 300mm AF-S VR f2,8G ED with Nikon warranty until September 2020. I am selling as my interests require different equipment. It is in excellent functional state, the tripod mount and the original Nikon hood have wear commensurate with normal use. This objective is excellent for wildlife photography, astrophotography and sports photography. Also included is a set of Gobe neutral density filters to enable long exposure in bright conditions. I would consider exchange, with monetary adjustment if necessary, for something for astronomy such as Takahashi telescopes and/or quality equatorial mount.
       
      Price £1900 (Current model available new for around £5500)

      I wonder if observing star or planet in equator country is different from north hemisphere or south?

      I have the opportunity to have a couple or three weeks at the "top end".
      1) Anybody been out there?
      2) Is it any good for observational astro?
      3) Taking the 72mm apo and lightweight altaz (if I go)
      Tried looking at websites for the area with regard to astronomy, but end up endeavouring to read possibly Mandarin so no info forthcoming.
      Any recommendations gratefully received.

      Hi all,
      For a long time I wanted to shoot this frame, probably from the early days of my astrophotography adventure.
      Finally after all these years I managed to get a decent result of the 'stuff' between these two beautiful nebulae. Fairly happy with the image but always looking for improvement.
      I hope one day to redo this all with a mono camera and filters. 
      Apart from NGC1499 , M45 and the Baby Eagle Nebula no idea what else is in the picture. If you happen to have an idea feel free to educate me.
       
      Some info on image and capturing:
      Widefield Pleiades to California.
      Taken over 2 nights with a total of 11hrs 25min integration.  
      With a stock Nikon d610 and Nikkor 85mm 1.8 objective.
      Tracking was done with the Skywatcher Star Adventurer.
      Lights and all calibrations frames were stacked in DSS.
      Processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CC using Adobe Raw, GradientXterminator plugin, HLVG plugin, Nik software plugins and Photokemi action set.
       
      Ken
