Uranus with 4 moons

At the moment Mars is in high demand, so I thought to try Uranus for a change and for the first time. It was getting light already, so just a few captures. It was very cool to see that blue/green disk but with processing I noticed the moons to my surprise :D They are Ariel, Titania, Oberon and Umbri...

Re: Using keyboard for mount steering, movement does not stop

Hi Robin Did test it with latest beta and it is kinda working like you described: the mount stops when first the direction button is released and then CTRL. But it starts to move again after that if the CTRL key is pressed to long ... or something like that, I can't figure it out yet. The IJKL keys ...

A rim in Cygnus near Sadr

A rim in Cygnus near Sadr (H-Alpha, H-Beta and OIII) Found this while browsing through Stellarium, so payed it a visit. Think it looks interesting with those bright fog like clouds streaming from a rim. Also the almost cut off from a lot of stars on the left and way fewer on the right. For those int...

Re: First ever Mars (LRGB and animations)

HI Brain. Thanks! One capture coming up again, a narrowband one from somewhere in Cynus. Yes, it's bin 1 but I did a two times image enlargement with processing. I did try things with bin 2 and bin 3 but that seems to do nothing other then a smaller image. A 60 second exposure with bin 1,2 or 3 does...

Re: First ever Mars (LRGB and animations)

Will do Robin! Have to rethink my Mars approach though: I did sets of 30000 frames at 120 fps and that is around 4.5 minutes per set. But in those 4.5 minutes there already is rather a lot of rotation. And that is now in 1 stack and that is not helping sharpness :( Think that 2 minutes (just above 1...

Re: Using keyboard for mount steering, movement does not stop

Something I noticed last night: for me the keyboard steering acts like a double click on the onscreen steering in SC. Could it be a repeat from an earlier bug (somewhere last year), there were a keyboard stroke was set to a too short repeat time?

First ever Mars (LRGB and animations)

Finally Mars became good visible for me, it finally comes above the roofs. I never did capture Mars before, so for a first time I am really pleased with it :D And learned already 1 thing: the rotation is way faster then I did expect. So, also did 2 (very) short animations: one RGB and one IR. The im...
