My first comet image - ISON

Imaged on the morning of Tuesday 19th Nov 2013 from mid New Forest, during the small window of opportunity between ISON rising above the ESE horizon & the pre-dawn light, oh, & to make matters worse in was only a few days away from a full moon, but cloud had scuppered prior opportunities. It was probably one of the hardest targets & conditions I've faced since starting astro in 2011. I even had to turn ...

Just a little moonie 14-11-13

I haven't posted in a while so thought I'd post my recent image of the moon. I don't often do much in the way of lunar imaging as I tend to do more planetary or DSO imaging. I had a look outside so I quickly mounted the scope a Celestron C80ED on an old manual EQ5 mount & connected up the Canon 1000D. I fired off 50 images, stacked & processed them in Photoshop. I ...

Jupiter Oct 30th Sky watcher 300p

Reasonable seeing on the 30th though dew once again making my secondary lose its impact. As such higher gain is needed. These are straight RGBs which look more natural than the versions with red lums. That's what I like the most about these processes the natural Feel. See if you agree. Thanks

Jupiter on Oct 7th

Hi Guys here's some early shots using a 12" Skywatcher Newtonian. The results seem very promising as the secondary was nearly completely dewed over when these were taken
Equipment was SW 300p ( blue tube ) NEQ6 mount. DMK21AU618.AS Camera. Astronomik Type2 RGB Filters

3D Mars from last year.

I've been playing around with a piece of software that creates cross-eye 3D images. This Mars from last year worked very well. Done with the Mak 127 and the humble spc900 webcam. :) Showing the north polar cap, Mare Acidalium and Mare Erythraeum in the south. Ice crystal clouds are also evident. :)

Image

For anyone interested, here is ...

Solar selection - 11 July

I'm beginning to get the hang of using the C8 at full aperture. I'm quite pleased with the following images of the major active regions and a close up of the photosphere showing the granulation. The camera was the QHY IMG132E, which does seem to be giving better results than the DMK31.

Full disc 6th July / AR 1785

Here are some images taken bright and early this morning, seeing dropped off very quickly so though I have a few more these are the best of bunch.

First the full disc, two image mosaic taken on my ST-80.

Image

The second is a close up AR 1785 taken on by C6-SGT, colored and crfopped version as well as the full frame white light version.

Image

Image

Pretty pleased with the last two.

Thanks
