  1. Today
  2. Pelican

    Certainly can be imaged from Perth. Here is a film image from around 2006. http://www.thecosmicartgallery.com/NorthAmerican.php Ray
  3. Got today's EPOD

    Great shot Professor. Ray
  4. Yesterday
  5. Deeper Gamma Cass

    Now that’s a ball tearer Shane
  6. Got today's EPOD

    Nice one Greg Shane
  7. Last week
  8. Got today's EPOD

    M31 with the tips missing. https://epod.usra.edu/ Greg P.S. If you look at EPOD on the wrong day (i.e. not today the 24th) then you will see a different image.
  9. Pelican

    That's interesting - Michael Sidonio (another Aussie) used to be pissed off with all the North America nebula pics from the Poms as he said he couldn't image it. But then again I don't know where in Oz he imaged. Greg
  10. I think I'll have a crack at these tonight. Three good targets, and yeah, if you have smoke or bad seeing, all bets are off. Ray
  11. Pearl Cluster

    I'll just say, "Holy Crap!" That's sweet! Tim
  12. I've finally gotten familiar with my new CEM 70. I'm thinking it's going to be just fine. Any-who, a few assorted pics. From the 20th. Smoke from the California fires came into play on this one. Sky had cleared a few days later, jet stream sent the smoke northward. Mars a little smoky as well. A Jupe from a few days ago, (still smokin.) And last night's venture. Not too pleased with any of the above, but under the current circumstances with the weather, I will just quietly grumble under my breath. I'm probably done with Jupiter and Saturn this apparition as they're easing toward the west. Could be worse, after buying a new mount, and, building an obs, I could be totally clouded out for months! Tim
  13. Pelican

    Awesome Prof. That neb extends so far out of frame as well. That is an object that I can shoot on my northern horizon, I need to be elevated though. The Pelican is as far north as I can shoot. Ray
  14. Pelican

    Amazing result Greg. I've always loved this region. Cygnus is loaded with eye candy. (Images are much better on here than FB.) Tim.
  15. Pelican

    After a long battle I managed to get all 3 Sky90s up and running and grabbed this one last night with 12 x 10-minute subs. Greg
  16. From Gamma Cass to Schedar

    They sure are. However I'm pretty spoilt with the Southern Hemisphere. I'll never run out of objects, however I have serious light pollution here. My next home will be out woop woop. Ray
  17. Deeper Gamma Cass

    Even better! Ray
  18. Deeper Gamma Cass

    I combined the recent Gamma Cass data from the 200mm lenses with some earlier deeper data and got this result. A lot more of the Ghost Nebula is visible in this one. Greg
  19. Earlier
  20. From Gamma Cass to Schedar

    Yes - the C14 would do them justice. Ghost nebula near Gamma Cass and Pacman next to Schedar - I guess these are too far North for you guys to see. Greg
  21. From Gamma Cass to Schedar

    I'd love to put my C14 @ prime on those nebs Greg. Love your work buddy. Ray
  22. Ruchbah region

    Good to see you Professor. Great shot. Just starting to warm up here, hopefully get some nice starfields like yours soon. Ray
  23. From Gamma Cass to Schedar

    Last night's effort with the 200mm lenses and Trius M26C OSC CCDs, 20 x 15-minute subs. Greg
  24. Ruchbah region

    Awesome Greg. Shane
  25. I've been busy/My new OBS!

    Very schmick mate. You’ll love the ioptron. My Cem60 is awesome, such a vast improvement over the old mount. Shane
  26. Nice Tim. As Ray said at least you are getting something. My obs is undergoing refurbishment at the moment. Shane
  27. Ruchbah region

    Got out for my first imaging session of the season last night (16/09/2020) and fired up the MiniWASP array to test out the Sky90s and the Canon 200mm lenses. Decided on the Ruchbah region as it was well placed, and here is a 5 x 10-minute test shot using the 200mm lens. Out again tonight imaging the Schedar/Gamma Cass region again using the 200mm lenses but this time using 15-minute subs.
  28. The ZWO120mm monochrome cam. Baader fitlters. Tim.
  29. lol, the joys of astrophotography. Nice shot mate. We missed it down here. Ray
