  1. Whole Transit of Mercury

    Well I still haven't had the first imaging run of the season yet which makes this the worst year for imaging since I started this nonsense in Autumn 2004. Greg
  2. Whole Transit of Mercury

    Here is the whole of the Transit of Mercury courtesy of NASA's SDO. One image every 15-minutes from 12:45 a.m. until 18:00 Greg
  3. M20 RGB 2 pane Mosaic

    WOW!!!!!!! That is a BELTER Greg
  4. It would be funny if we were not living through it. Greg
  5. Not sure if I posted this one years ago - but I just came across it again. A 9-microsecond freeze of an air rifle pellet taking out 2 eggs. The air rifle pellet can be seen off to the far left. And the eggs were later eaten by the dog - so no waste. Greg
  6. For a number of reasons I've decided to quit Facebook - so it's either here or www.newforestobservatory.com for my latest piccies Greg

  8. Nice job Ray Greg
  9. 6 minute ISS pass

    This was an interesting exercise that I almost got right. A long 6-minute pass of the ISS last night, so long that it went out of the field of view of the fisheye lens. So I rotated the camera as the ISS went over the meridian and carried on imaging. Didn't realise that I had managed to get that tree in on the far left so I made the mistake of rotating the camera a 3rd time - and unfortunately the 3rd dataset wouldn't merge with the first two sets. So I don't get the ISS moving behind the tree Never mind, I'll know what to do next time. The ISS trail is in 5-second bits as it was still pretty light at 19:15 and this was at ISO 100 (my minimum).

  10. Coddington's nebula

    This is a composite image of Coddington's nebula together with Carbon star SAO 15274 (bottom left hand corner) taken with the Sky 90 array. 5 hours last night and around 12 hours over 2 nights some time ago. Greg
  11. Greg's "3" asterism

    I recently took an image of Greg's "3" asterism in Leo on the 200mm lenses. In this image I have inserted old Sky 90 data. Greg
  12. Flaming Star

    Cheers Shane - sounds great from the cooling alone!! Greg
  13. Flaming Star

    Which camera Shane?? Greg
  14. Flaming Star

    Yes on cold nights -25C is no problem - but during the summer -15C is the best I can do. Greg
