    Cocoon Nebula at Kelling

    Another image from Kelling which didn't come without gremlins aplenty, but i surprisingly did manage to get 4 hours of data despite it all. 1st night, Duo-Narrowband combined with the second of RGB. C&C welcome.

    Talk about the circle of life.

    I have just taken charge of a new apprentice. When I asked him what had got him into engineering he told me it was his grandfather. He went on to explain how his grandfather had worked for a company from leaving school. He worked for them for 65years and only retired when the company closed down. This was the very same company where I did my apprenticeship way back in the 70's. It turns out that his grandfather was one of the guys who taught me. Now I am teaching his grandson. How is that for going full circle.

    The Heart Nebula SHO

    Feels like ages since I last posted, but here is my first SHO Image ? Taken with my 200PDS, ZWO 1600MM Pro and Baader filters. Surprised how much I got for only 4.5 Hours! This is a URL attachment from a twitter post of mine, so it is a little compressed. 2h ha, 1.5h Oiii, 1h Sii, Stacked in DSS with darks, flats and processed in Adobe Photoshop mostly with the selective colour tool. c&c welcome ?

    M31 Lum from home

    M31 from home after about 6 hours with the Tak collimator last weekend. Slighty better stars but still the odd shape on one or two of the brighter ones.

    Steve, It's Kitt Peak in Arizona. More here https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1SQWT4RBz0Yux6PQI7KfVgWtG_-y6eodi?usp=sharing Only had a few hours here one morning as we had to catch a flight back (had been to Spacefest Tucson), so no opportunity to go at night.Brilliant place, though!

    M33 with TMB 80/480

    Just a regular DSLR (canon d70). Subs from 3 miuntes to seven (around 20 odd) mounted on a fork driven CPC1100. No dithering and just PS and DSS. Will probably still keep fiddling though, you know how it is!

    iPolar polar scope

    Well I am very pleased with the iPolar, easy to use as it plate solves even if you cannot see Polaris! It has also helped with my guiding as I regularly get a graph like this now!!

    M31 Lum from home

    I very much doubt it . I think it could be the lens spacers diffracting the brighter stars.

    Pelican Nebula in narrowband

    Finally managed to get a decent length of time in all three filters on the Pelican Nebula. This is 75 minutes in Sii, Ha and Oiii. Aligned in DSS and processed in Photoshop. This one has been a long time coming, all sorts of technical issues over the last three weeks, so pleased to have finally got there.
This leaderboard is set to London/GMT+01:00
