Finally a night in the obs

Recommended Posts

Well i finally got a night of observing in the obs , and here are some of the results.

All are with the DSI-2pro at f3.3 on the 12 in lx90.

Also i took a pic of comet Tuttle 8p again and it still looks like the core has split.

Thanks for looking

Clear skies

Awesome work mate. Those images are very crisp. I can't wait to get my obs up and running, and get the dsi pro 2 doing some stuff.

What is that photo where there are two galaxies?

Cheers

Howdy HP, Very nice crisp, clean images...:bow:

10cm/four inches of snow here last night, it'll still be a while yet before I can image anything:crazy: Glad you got a clear sky for a change.

Yep, I think your right, there does appear to be two bright core's on 8p. I wonder if anybody else knows this?

Hi HP

I like the images, very crisp and plenty of detail, it's nice to see others using monochrome. Sometimes you just can't portray the same atmosphere in an image with colour, especially the horsehead. A lot of my imaging is now going to be done with monochrome + Ha filter (everybody should have one of these in their equipment)

All the best

Gordon

thanks Gordon, i do like the b/w images better sometimes , but on this occasion i was too hurried to bother with the filter wheel.

I think i might try some b/w with the canon 400d next to see how they come out.

Cheers

Howdy Hp.

Just curious, what are you using to gain the 3.3 reduction on your scope...I know Meade offer's a 3.3 focal reducer, in fact it's the only 3.3 reducer I've seen anyone offering. Their kit looks like it comes with some 'other stuff', but Meade doesn't state what the 'other stuff', is.

Well Tim , the other stuff they come with is a set of spacer ring , which allow you to vary the reduction from f4 to f3 i think...been a while since i looked it up.:smile:
