    Christmas came early. 😊 Think I have everything I need now except possibly a Polemaster. Nice dealings with RVO 👍...

    IC5070 new kit Kelling

    After several trials and tribulations with the new kit i did manage to get an image from Kelling Tak 85 reduced Ha filter Losmandy G8 mount QSI 683 22 x 10 min subs guided with phd, gave up with maxim as it would not cooperate on the guiding. Not perfect but was impressed i actually got it all to work 😂 was a tad windy too

    M1 longer subs for me guided

    M1 with the tak 130 extended guiding in maxim, QSI 690 4 subs 1/2 hour each so not too much data

    Bubble Nebula 12.11.18

    This is the first image I've taken since my CCD was changed to colour. It was a lot different to the mono in that it needs finer focusing and longer exposures. I also learnt about De-bayering as well! This image is only 40 mins of exposures with a few Flats and Bias images and is a Jpeg. So the learning curve continues!! be gentle with me!!

    Just got this book. It is the most beautiful astronomy book I've ever seen. It is big, and covers every Messier object in great detail. It is lavishly illustrated and so well laid out with the best images, drawings, historical and discovery info, astrophysics etc, etc. Thoroughly recommend it. 😊

    Very nice Pete 🎅🏻 Maybe worth trying sharpcap PolarAlign for a tenner if your guider is suitable to use does exactly the same job but cheaper than a polemaster , fear we may have clouds for a few weeks though ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️

    Thanks. It reached the BBC News website. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-leicestershire-46184642/fireball-caught-on-camera-in-loughborough?SThisFB&fbclid=IwAR0JvrpOAM4VqNaXcOMR3Mc8CXCE4gmMbzqOsaPGS0_-aJEEe0HsM6I0310 It was captured by a few other cameras so there should be enough data to triangulate it and work out ground track, and a potential area where it could have come down, if any fragments survived that is. Early indications suggest a ground track in the SW, ending possibly Martock but I'm waiting to hear more news.

    I would, ideally with a new scope. But i'm just a poor boy... I had one but don't now. Easy come, easy go. Never mind, nothing really matters to me...

    Fabulous capture! 👍 The Southern and Northern Taurids (peaking on 5/6th and 12/13th respectively) and are renowned for slow meteors - and the odd fireball! So it may have been a sporadic or more likely a Taurid. It would have been a real wow if you had seen live! 👌
