Re: NGC6992 Eastern Veil Ha/Oiii/Sii

Hi Dave it was not very scientific I planned to do 90 minutes on each and then stack the best 70 - 75% but we started a bit late and I never looked at when it would get low to the west hence the shorter SII period. The 180s come from the fact that I like to use the average filter rather than median ...

NGC6992 Eastern Veil Ha/Oiii/Sii

Had chance to get the scope out last night for an imaging session started a bit late so did not collect much Sii on the target as it had gotten a little low in the sky but managed a reasonable amount on Ha and Oiii. The image below is comprised of the best 70% of subs captured. Equipment Avalon M-UN...

Re: Mount not found at com 2

Not sure if it is related but I have a Synscan Avalon M-UNO that is effectively using the EQ5/6 controller and I connect to this using the EQDirect method via the FTDI or Prolific chipset can't remember which one. If I plug this cable in the USB 2 port of my Eagle then it says it is working under de...

Re: How do I read the information that I need from my sensor analysis in regards to optimal settings to use my camera

looking at the chart 1 e/adu is unity and would be between 400 and 562 on the snapshot you posted.

Re: NGC7380 Wizard Nebula Ha/Oiii/Sii

Hi Dave, I tried PixInsight and APP on trial and stuck with APP as for me everything was just easier as I can process up the data from an evening in a couple of hours without difficulty were as I found PixInsight a little bit convoluted and heavy going. It just depends on what you are looking for bu...

Re: M33, Triangulum Galaxy, Vixen 81s + Altair 183C

Hi Dave, Nice shot the clouds lately are a bit of a pain in the butt as it starts out nice then deteriorates usually just after you get everything setup and start imaging. Hopefully as Autumn / Winter sets in it might settle down a little it was cool last night as it dropped to 6.5c whilst I was ima...

NGC7380 Wizard Nebula Ha/Oiii/Sii

The weather has not been playing ball lately but the sky cleared last night at 23.30 so imaged until just before 4.00 the shot is composed of the best 80% of the frames taken. This is also with the new darks library with all gains set to a black offset of 50 as it saves me having to remember to chan...

Re: Guiding with PHD2 and use of SC

SharpCap will monitor the guiding status of PHD2 so can pause the stacking if guiding is lost also the same applies to dithering as PHD2 will notify SharpCap whilst a dither is in progress and once it has settled.

Hope that helps
