    • M33 in RGB
      What a fabulous night it was last night (Saturday 6th Oct) Everything worked flawlessly with no issues except for one green channel getting trashed from high cloud, that passed pretty quickly and I was able to continue. This  shot is a simple RGB image, I do have plans to get some more data including Luminance and Ha to enhance the H2 regions. I'm quite pleased with the core detail.
      Exposure time 7x 900s in Red, 7x640s in Green and 860s in Blue. Taken with my AG12 and H35 camera

    • Elephant's Trunk Nebula - first narrowband image with the Hyperstar
      Hi everyone - here's my attempt at the Elephant's Trunk. Can't match Graham's excellent Hubble pallet image but I'm happy with my first Ha image withthe Hyperstar on my C8 SCT. This was 2hrs 15mins of exposure through a bit of haze and high cloud, so not the best seeing conditions.

    • Trifid Nebula
      Taken under a bright moon last week, 36 minutes of two minutes exposures at ISO 800. First time I'd had a crack at this... Dark skies coming, hoping for a clear windless night, I need to have a serious go and get a lot more data on this lovely object..

    • Picture of the Month September 2018
      That was a better month for Astro, a few decent darker nights, great let's see some more weather gods. As usual the round up précis'd to cut the length down a bit cos we have a lot this month particularly deep sky and solar.

    • Ngc 7789 in RGB
      Nothing really special....but a lovely cluster to image especially with the bright moon about. Exposure times were 10x 600 s in red 10x 420sec in green and 10x 560s in blue. I did have some challenges with gradients wit the bright moon but we cant be fussy with the amount of moonless clear nights we get. 
      Thanks for looking
