M78 - LRGB

Hi
Normally I do narrow band due to light pollution unless the subject is high up near the zenith and there is no moon. I thought I would have a go at M78 as it is a subject that has always appealed to me, the problem being that I can only image it once Orion has cleared my house and by then it has already gone past its highest position in the sky and I ...

Skywatcher 130mm

Asking a very naive question, I have a Skywatcher 130mm. On the 2 star alignment the scope tells me to move it to the chosen first star using the direction keys. How do I know how far I am moving it to get to the coordinates and which direction? Thanks.

The picture was taken inside the Command Module, the picture was of his head and face, in profile, and illuminated by the sun through a window.
The picture was stunning.
Patrick said it was among his most favourite ...

Scope selection choice

Hey folks,

So I'm looking to get a bigger refractor to complement my existing C90 and TS70. I'm a rather experienced stargazer and can starhop and find my way to several Messier objects. I'm thinking of a 4" f10 achromat. I live in the middle of Bangalore and a short scope for DSOs doesn't make real sense here. I need something for planetary observations, brigther DSOs and double stars. So, my query is, how is ...

Now that i have sold my Skywatcher ED 80 Pro OTA i no longer need the Russell Croman designed lightbox that i made for it.

Its overall size is: 51cm x 17cm x 17cm.
It contains 2 off diffusers and a pushon/off LED Light.
It is constructed from White Foam Board and hence is extremely light.

Due to its delicate nature ...
