Re: First year of SHARPCAP PRO 3.2

Nice image of Andromeda, same here been using SharpCap for probably just over four years and it is probably the best decision I ever made and also the cheapest in terms of astrophotography. Even now though I still have nights were everything just goes wrong think it is is the nature of the hobby and...

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...

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.

Cheers
Nick
