  1. 1st Images from my new 450d

    Honestly, I never thought about it Ray. As, (for my purposes) I prefer the OSC 'one and done method'. I am thinking about a newer cooled camera but I am not yet ready to pull the trigger. (Can't seem to make up my mind.) Tim
  2. 1st Images from my new 450d

    Great captures Ken. Is your 450D modified for AP, or just using the stock filter? I modified mine myself (450D) installing a IR pass filter. Lets in the Ha wavelengths. NOTE: The noise gets rough on exposures above 5min @ ISO 800. 1600 is worse, unless you're shooting say, a comet using 1min exposures. Glad you like it, Have fun and experiment! Tim.
  3. M87 Jet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well done Greg! And BTW, Happy Birthday!
  4. Crikey..!!! - over one year later!!!

    Awesome captures Daryl. Especially the first posting (my favorite.) Olympus Mons looks like a zit poking out from the surface. (I know not a pretty analogy but it's how it struck me.) Glad to hear from you as well. Keep on truckin! Tim.
  5. NGC1333 composite image

    And people think space is empty...
  6. Pelican

    Fantastic capture, maybe just a little over the top in processing. Seems to be lacking in depth. IMHO. Tim
  7. Barnard's "E"

    There's more...I counted.
  8. 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.
  9. Planetary Debacles

    What program/programs are you using for processing? Seems like I remember hearing about this conundrum before. Tim
  10. 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!
  11. Just a few quick assorted pics. A little crappy on this composite, but it's supposed to be a Hallowmoon. Anyhoo...
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. Last nights Mars.

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

    Yep, that worked very well! Tim
