Thought people may like to see my recent custom design for my SkyWatcher Heritage 130p...
As a big Apollo misson geek, and not being a fan of the stock astronomer names wrap on the 130p, I decided to get creative.
I used a great moon wall sticker just £6 from Ikea (https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/kinnared-decoration-stickers-moon-00448463/) as well as some matt vinyl stickers from Redbubble, one for each Apollo mission patch.
Below is pics of the mod in progress and the end result - would love to hear what you think!
Here's a quick shot of last night's moon.
I've broken the crayford on my SkyWatcher 130pds so had to hold the focuser tube to get it sharp. Not ideal but I'm pleased with the result.
Àny ideas how I can add more colour without affecting the detail?
I'm not experienced with LRGB imaging, so thought i'd give it a go on M81. However, when i combine the 4 individually processed integrations i end up with horrible colour hues across the image - they're all aligned and wotnot. Am i running into the issues of light pollution (inside the M25), which i can only remove with aggressive DBE application? Individual files attached.
I've got a 5 year old desktop, which i think performs decently and does my Pixinsight processing pretty well. However, i want to change to a laptop for the form-factor, but i don't want to compromise on performance.
This is my rig: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/27054387
What machine do you use and how does it perform with Pixinsight? Any folk familiar with computer hardware able to provide steer on whether i'm due an upgrade?
Looking to understand how others do their processing.
