Kyle, Will do. Now that things are starting to really come together I'll be posting the camera settings with future postings. I can say that the sculptor was wit AGC low and Sens up was maxed at 512. This was due to being in light polluted skies and adding filters to compensate
. In darker skies these settings will be less.

Here are a few screen grabs from my MCJR . Note the temp tonight was - 23 degrees C with lots of light pollution from fog from furnace exhausts.

Nomosnow, Thanks for posting and suffering the cold. They look really good. Before I found this site I was pretty much the lone ranger in this field where I am.
It's great to be able to share and learn from others.
How did you capture the screens? I see that the video raster lines are easily seen. Was this from a CRT or LCD screen? I have noticable rasters whenever I do any digital zoom and capture.

Thanks John....yep it works..
Now that I have some fast optics,I need to work on the LP.
I only used a lpr filter last night..I should of used
the UHC filter,so that will be my next experiement...
If i can get the color balance on the UHC,then moonlight
wont be such a problem with the backrounds..

Woo-Hoooooo, top stuff Maurice.

It's hard getting Northern Objects on my North Horizon and I have dark sky, so your efforts of getting Southern objects on your South Horizon through London's Light Pollution are waayyy more impressive!



Great results
