  1. And, my best effort at the 'Great Conjunction of the Century'. It will still be a good view tomorrow night if one has the opportunity, (and the weather) to have a look. This one is from the 20th. And this is from the 21st. I used the C9.25 with my now old 450da and a 2x barlow lens I fabricated some time back. FOV was about right for this event. Cheers, Tim.
  2. Planetary Debacles

    What program/programs are you using for processing? Seems like I remember hearing about this conundrum before. Tim
  3. Not too bad of a night last night. I thinks it's time to search for a bigger OTA though...16"or maybe 20". Yeah right!
  4. Just a few quick assorted pics. A little crappy on this composite, but it's supposed to be a Hallowmoon. Anyhoo...
  5. Wasted time.

    So. It's clear, it's fairly cold, I'm sitting here watching some planet jump all over my screen, scratching my head, I'm going, wtf? Thinking back, (something I always used to check,) I forgot about checking the jet stream, AAAAARGH!
  6. This is last nights effort. Hope to get some better images as it's beginning to get colder at night. Might steady things up a bit. Tim.
  7. Last nights Mars.

    About 9pm it pops out from behind a tree....But it's ideal about 11pm to 1am.
  8. NGC7331 massive crop

    Yep, that worked very well! Tim
  9. Got a few clear nights. Trying to get in some imaging time. A little soft, but better than to overdo it. Cheers, Tim.
  10. Obs refurbish/repair

    A fridge, bar and a TV you got a Man Cave!
  11. Haven't seen one of these little fellas in a while. Hung out a bit then went his own way. Tim.
  12. Walked outside last night about 11pm, and noticed this action going on. It was cloudy earlier, so I didn't bother trying to do any imaging. But anyway just a quick snapshot a Mars and the Moon hangin together. Tim.
  13. Obs refurbish/repair

    Looking good! Tim.
  14. Pleiades ultradeep - with colour

    Nothing short of spectacular! Tim.
  15. Pearl Cluster

    I'll just say, "Holy Crap!" That's sweet! Tim
