Re: Nebulae in H-alpha, part 1

Nice images Bruce. Ha filter is a good way to use the big moon period. Tracking looks good, the C11 must be a severe test of everything being correctly set. If you capture some OIII you should have the makings of some interesting HOO images.

This is my arrangement for a Celestron C8 SCT. On image 2, the red arrow indicates the end of the scope. The idea is to try to create warm air just above the glass. I have had both heater bands on the dew shield. By trial and error, the arrangement shown works reliably for me. When I get dew it is a...

Re: Snapshot Intervals

Have a look a http://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#!2!Start%20Capture. Under Capture Limits Explained, the 5th example should give the function you require. Test it out properly before the event!

Re: sharpcap v 3.2.6128.0 asking for new QHY driver

Thanks Steve. It would be useful if you can report back on if the TEC issue goes away with the new driver.

Re: Live Stack Mosaic Horse and Flame

With my C8, I use a dew shield + 2 dew heater bands otherwise I am misted out very quickly. I am located on the west side of the Pennine Hills, UK. All the cotton mills were built here during the industrial revolution because the damp climate stopped the cotton snapping when it was being spun.
