Hi Menno, nice bubble I know the feeling the weather here has been awful as well no clear nights since October got excited Christmas eve as it was forecast to be clear which it was looking good for then it went misty.

Re: NGC 281 The Pacman Nebula in Hubble Palette

Nice image that is one I have never tried so may well give it ago at some point but might buy an Optolong L-Enhance, L-Pro or L-Extreme first still weighing the options. Also fancy ago at Andromeda but means I need to get my ass into gear and sort the back spacing for the ASI2600MC and the Massimo R...

Re: Blue Moon on November 1st, 2020

Nice image, never got to see the actual moon due to rain / howling winds and heavy cloud which is on par for most astronomical events worth looking at were I live :D

Re: First Narrowband Light with the ASI294MM Pro

Nice image as usual, I have the 1600mm and the microlensing is a pain in the butt especially on things line the horsehead as it just ruins the image. Having just brought the ASI2600MC Pro it will be a while before I look at another camera, just hope they don't bring out a 2600MM as that would be tem...

M33 Triangulum (Oh no not another one)

Hi, Well everyone taking photos of M33 made me want to have ago so first clear night for what seems an eternity and as normal also coincided with a 91% moon tracking about 40 - 45 degrees behind the target all night prime example of murphy's law. So thought sod it will have ago anyway this is a stac...

Re: Is it possible with 3.3 to dither without guiding and no live stack?

Menno if you are anything like me that 1/2 a night will also coincide with a full moon directly in front of the target and most of Elon Musk's starlink satellite's.

Re: Is it possible with 3.3 to dither without guiding and no live stack?

Hi Menno, PHD2 will not do blind dithering as it moves the guide star co-ordinates to dither and then re-centers this moved star it would have to be a feature of the imaging software to dither in the way you are describing I believe NINA and APT may have a feature if Robin is looking for what others...

Re: M13 first image in a while also with DIY lifting Pier

Thanks Robin/Bruce, I know the feeling were I live it is in between two rivers and the surrounding hills almost create a continuous stream of clouds so even if the apps say it going to be clear it usually is not. Hence the reason I built a weather station with infra red sensors so I can sit in the l...
