  • Comet ISON

    As of this morning, fri.. 29th , it is looking bleak for ISON - it appears to have not survived the trip round the sun intact, if at all. Still the occasional rumor and many stargazers in a state of denial, but i'm not holding out too much for the naked eye spectacle we were all hoping for.

    Thanks guys, very kind comments. Smile

    Those philips webcams do pretty well as an astro-cam don't they?

  • Jupiter

    Yes, thats a moon to the left - they turn up in a lot of Jupiter pics, sometimes it's difficult to get them to show without overexposing the planet but every now and then they seem to survive the stacking process with no extra editing needed.

    Thank you for the nice comments Smile

  • Flame and Horsehead nebula in Orion.

    Quote:I look up and it could take as long as 45 minuits to get a colour plus a Black and white to get rid of noise.
    So it could take as long as 225 mins to get a image.
    Now you can see why I give you my UA..

    Magic work..


    Thank you Dave, really nice comment and UA (is it your picture, of the big cat? I like it Smile)

    Much appreciated,

  • Lockheed Shooting Star

    Like it.Smile
    Aside from the brilliant techniques the planes themselves make great subjects - very nicely done.

  • Last nights moon.

    Nice. You have an awesome camera and did well to attach it to a 90mm refractor. I wouldn't mind something like that for the widefield views. Great shot though, really good focus and detail. Smile

    Hugely amazing image, love it

  • Pleiades (M45)

    Its what they call seven sisters, you can see it with naked eyes as a speckle of stars - rising in the east before dawn at the moment. But through binoculars it looks better. The pic was using the 55-200mm all the way zoomed.

    Thank you for the nice comment Smile

  • Hoverfly Episyrphus baleatus feeding on a Purple Cosmos

    Amazing, I'd love to learn how to take macro shots like this one! Very cool image, as are your others.

    Something non-astro, but not necessarily normal either

    Is it rare? Blush

    Hoping there hasn't been a huge uploading of astro-pics recently and the comment was meant as irony..... Tongue

    I'm planning on getting into normal photography, I swear. Grin

    ....just one more go with the telescope (I can't help it, i'm hooked!) Wink

  • The Bubble Nebula

    Yeah, no problem. Soz. forget a lot of the time to include details thinking no-one would be interested, my mistake. lol Smile Blush

    A mixture of exposure lengths - about 60 short & 25 longer subs (lights) ~90 in all, roughly 40sec to 2mins long, similar length darks with 't-shirt over the scope' dawn-sky flats. (unsure how effective these were). iso 1600 & 3200(russian firmware gives 10D custom settings Tongue)

  • Whirlpool galaxy

    Thnx for the nice comments, though there are many better versions done by hugely skilled imagers especially on the astro forums. Im still very much a beginner!

    Apparently, the galaxy is roughly somewhere between 15 and 30 million light years away. Quite a long ufo journey!

    The 300D was attached directly to my 200mm (8") reflector at prime focus and approx ninety x 60 second exposures were stacked with dark frames.

    I'm soon going to be getting a NIKON D3100 in the post - Smile for resuming 'normal' photography since my canon was modified (IR filter removed) so cant wait to learn a few techniques!

  • Jupiter's moon - transit of Io casting a shadow

    AW THNX Blush

    A philips spc900nc attached prime focus to a 200mm reflector (Skywatcher 200p) using a 3x barlow lens (err scope is F/5 so um f/15 ish?) anyways its the usual webcam in a 8" telescope, my preferred method for Jupiter.

    Thank you for the kind comments Smile

  • Full Moon

    Cheers folks, Smile

    Its a canon 300D attached prime focus to my 200p telescope. My only lens is a 1975 industar 50-2 which i'm loving at the moment, for the price its doing very well - my cat is now a supermodel!

  • Saturn

    Many thanks, Smile

    I'm pretty new to photography, my interest comes more from using a telescope and wanting to capture the views.
    I use a philips webcam which attaches directly (prime-focus) so the telescope acts as a lens. Then stack a minute worth of AVI frames into a single image to reduce noise and help with detail.
    Its pretty average compared to some of the folks on astro forums Ive seen! Really great images, I like the whole idea Grin

    A Dslr can be attached in the same way for long exposures which capture deep space objects, though tracking it can be a lot harder. Tongue

  • Bring For Ye Shadow

    Woah, ok. now this is amazing!
    Not been here long and still learning, but this is an inspiring image - makes me want to take my canon300d off my telescope and buy a lens for it! Smile

    Wow, like the style v much.
    Will definitely be checking out your other pics.

    Thank you for the very nice comments, folks.Smile
    Although, you should see some of the astro-images done these days! My equipment is comparatively cheap, and i'm quite new to photography in general. However I love the idea of astrophotography and wanted to take pictures since first looking through my telescope a year ago.
