Re: Jupiter/Saturn, Skyris 618M, 120fps, LRGB filters

Very cool planetary work, Dave. I learn a lot just reading all of the information you provide. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Comet NEOWISE

Here is an aligned and stacked (5x15s) version using a tool in PixInsight called Comet Alignment. It is unfortunate that I used too much of an exposure time as I was just guessing. This was from a C11" EdgeHD using an ASI2600 MC Pro. Very low in the horizon.

Re: NGC 6960

Thanks again for the compliments. This was tough, at least for me. Over 6 hours of data and lots of fine tuning with PixInsight.

Re: Comet NEOWISE

Another pathetic attempt. I have other shots to look at and might be able to stack them.

Re: Comet NEOWISE

Fantastic shots, Don!

I was disappointed last night. The comet became visible for about 30 sec just at sunset. So, I only got a couple of shots with my DSLR on a tripod. I also don't have a large lens, so, I was fighting a losing battle.

Re: Comet NEOWISE

Finally giving it a shot tonight with my DSLR on a tripod and if that fails, perhaps my 80mm with a CMOS on Monday night. A tight window between 8:34 and 9:00 to see it at best at very low in the horizon.

Re: Messier 16 The Eagle Nebula

Thanks guys. Always a favorite target despite its location. I still remember the first images of the Pillars from the Hubble Telescope when they were made public. I also remember, not sure if you do, there were actually complaints, at least in the US press, that NASA had tricked everyone because the...
