Glad to be here (hello from Germany)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

my name is Mike, I'm 26 years old and I wanted to buy a telescope since I was in school.

A few months ago I finally purchased my very first telescope (Skywatcher 150/750 newtonian, eq3-2) and I wanted to be more active in this awesome community.

Here are my very first captures I made this year :)

I'm looking forward to whatever is next and I hope to learn from more experienced people in this forum.

Cheers, Mike

Welcome to SGL.  Wow those are amazingly good images from an EQ2-3.  I wonder what you could produce from an HEQ5?

Thank you Carole, thank you davhei. Maybe one day I will stock up my equipment. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford anything better at the moment.

These pictures were taken from my backyard, so I'm also interested in how much the quality will improve once I go out in a less light polluted area.

Welcome from Land Down Under

Amazing pics using an EQ2-3

How many images you take to process, and what program you use to process

Thank you all again!

John: For the orion nebula I took around 100 pictures and for the whirlpool galaxy around 200 pictures (30 second exposure each) and I used pixinsight for stacking and processing.

Not sure about the moon image anymore, but I used registax for stacking and processing.

Even though have to subscribe

Pixinsight seems to be number one choice for processing

Yes, it seems to work really good. I still have to learn a lot about this program, though.
