  1. Got today's EPOD - remember you saw it on here first https://epod.usra.edu/ Greg
  2. Solargraph - the image

    This was scanned on a Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB scanner - which was just sitting there as a dead piece of kit - until I came across some very bright blokes who created a driver for Win10 to give it a new lease of life.
  3. Solargraph - the image

    I replaced the original image with one taken on a higher resolution scanner. Greg
  4. And here is the actual pinhole camera image (solargraph) itself. The topmost bright line is the Sun's path on the Summer Solstice (June 21st 2022) and the bright line at the very bottom is the Sun's path on the Winter Solstice (December 21st 2021). The two white domes at the bottom of the image are the New Forest Observatories. Greg
  5. Solargraph

    Summer Solstice today for us Brits and tonight I will bring in the photopaper from the pinhole camera that has been imaging from December 21st 2021 until today. Piccie of the pinhole camera is attached. Greg
  6. The Eye of the Bull

    The good thing about the rings is that they are precisely the star colour as Noel takes the colour from around the edge of the star (keeping clear of the core where it is saturated - white). Greg
  7. The Eye of the Bull

    I reprocessed Aldebaran with ring flare so it would look similar to Spica and Arcturus.
  8. Spica - the Brightest Bluest star in the sky. Reprocessed 22/04/2015 data taken on the Sky90 array with the M26C OSC CCDs. 33 subs at 5-minutes per sub. Spica is Alpha Virginis, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo.
  9. Arcturus and "Napoleon's Hat"

    From 03-06-2015 a 2-frame mosaic of Arcturus taken with the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. Each frame was 30 subs at 4-minutes per sub. In the 5 o'clock position is the asterism called "Napoleon's Hat".
  10. Reprocessed data from 09/09/2015 - the bright star towards centre bottom is Epsilon Cassiopeiae (the topmost left star in the Cassiopeia "W") - and in the 11 o'clock position is an interesting asterism I call "Greg's Lambda" as noone else seems to have laid claim to it. This is a Sky90 array/M26C OSC CCD image with each frame being 12 subs at 10-minutes per sub.
  11. Kemble's Cascade

    This is Kemble's Cascade in the constellation Camelopardalis - and in this image the Cascade has been made more apparent by using the Akira Fujii effect. Another old data reprocess from 22/09/2015. This is a 4-frame mosaic using the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. 3 of the 4 frames are 12 x 10-minute subs, and the 4th frame is 15 x 10-minute subs giving a total exposure time of 8 and a half hours. This is a large crop to centre the cascade.
  12. The Eye of the Bull

    A reprocess of Aldebaran from 08/12 /2015 using the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. This is a 2-frame mosaic with a total number of 66 subs at 2-minutes per sub. Greg
  13. Mighty Merak in Ursa Major

    Yep - that's M97 Owl nebula and M108 galaxy Greg
  14. Carbon star T Cancri

    Carbon star T Cancri from 14/03/2016 using the Sky90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs. This is 18 subs at 10-minutes per sub. Greg
