where to locate the Barlow?

I lost my post !

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this

Thanks

Equipment Envy

We've all been there! We see a photo online or in a magazine that was taken with a 999mm APO and a multi zillion, billion, quintillion terapixel camera. We think that if we just got a higher-paid job or won the lottery, we could get the gear and take pictures like that ourselves.

Apart from the fact that there might actually be some skill required, the fact is that most of us have to work, ...

A good starter scope ready for imaging ?

Hi,

I am very new to astronomy and I'm looking for a scope and mount that is good starter to general viewing but I can use for astrophotography later. I recently went to a local club and had a look through a few different scopes.

1st attempt Hercules Cluster M13

Hi all this is my first attempt at hercules cluster as I am fairly pleased with the images as the moon was very bright making it a bit more difficult to get the image,hopefully when the moon is out of the way will try and get some better images.I used deepskystacker I think it captured about 860 stars in the cluster.
Thanks for looking.

Moon and Jupiter

I would just like to say to the forum,
I was outside with me and my uncle tonight, testing out new pair of binoculars, having a look at the early moon, when low and behold, what did we see; Jupiter underneath the moon; an amazing sight, will never forget it.

Regards,
