2nd time around

Recommended Posts


Like many others finding ways to fill enforced time at home I've been inspired to return to astronomy. Unfortunately when I fired up my old ASGT mount it lasted one session and promptly died with no prospect of resurrection, which prompted me to think 'if not now, when?', so I bought a EQ6-R (very impressed). I also sorted out a guide scope and took advantage of the recent clear skies the UK has experienced.

I've been amazed by the difference a guide scope makes. I compared a photo I took n 2009 with a one shot, unprocessed, image I took last night.

Both taken with an unmodified DSLR and a C8 OTA, the 2020 image used a guider and EQ6-R mount. I need to add 'learning to process images' to my list of things to do.

This forum is a great resource that I've been trawling for information to improve my images. There's lots to catch up on how cameras, filters and techniques have moved on in the last decade.
