I see two excellent pictures, why delete them? You could just add some info as it's always good to know how you achieve things and what you used.

Hi John,

In the EAA thread we try to encourage folk to post not only how you did it as indicated by 'M40, - scope, camera, time etc, but observational comments, (features you have noted, research article references, info you might have found out about the object). By doing this it makes for observational astronomy, informs and inspires others and builds up our collective knowledge. Sometimes a comment is simply 'wow, this view is so beautiful'.

Incredible first attempts - I have never achieved such quality.

Mike

PS - I note you are on Mersea Island - know it well from my younger days of sailing.

Thanks Mike

I will take that onboard, it is still early days for me 🙂

Looking good for tonight...fingers crossed

Based on your listed equipment is this not standard imaging rather than EAA, or are these captures of the integrated view?

Not knocking the images - they are good.

My apologies if I've got the wrong idea.

The images are stacked from the Asiair plus live view.  The capture of the live view may be interpreted as imaging, i am not really sure?

By background is in visual astronomy so all this is new to me.

I think most of it is down to the ease of the software. 🙂

These are nice pictures.  If we're looking at what you were look at whilst (or, rather, by the end of) imaging, then this is EAA / EEVA in my book!

Nice wide FOV.  Good to see the 'Running Man' clearly in the Orion image too.

Welcome to this addictive technique.

Thank you Tony

It is very addictive!

I view the target in live stacking mode and then when i wish to move on i use the capture function to save the current stack view. 

The images are as i saw them on the tablet.

It works for me as i do not have the patience or wish to learn all the processing techniques.

I started on the easy targets as most do 🙂

For me EAA/EEVA  is the way forward.

Yep, I'd agree that definition since you could view that with others on screen.  Otherwise we'd need a photo of you taking a photo of the people looking at the same screen as proof 🤣
