Sorry, guys, I just haven't been keeping up with this thread but now on looking, I see there are some superb images here, notably from Milby !

My goodness though, this makes me envious ! Over here in the UK, we haven't seen the Sun in weeks let alone any stars !

By the way DaemonGPF, is that Stark Lab. "Nebulosity" I think I spotted there on your laptop which you're using for your capture/processing software ? If it is; just to say that I use the same, (weather permitting of course.....see above) !

Best regards,
Tel




It is indeed Nebulosity. I used it for acquisition, stacking, and calibration (pre-processing). I always take my post processing into Photoshop.

As always, excellent imaging, Milby !

I particularly like NGC2403 ! I never thought to try that one because Camelopardalis is a difficult constellation for me "to reach" with my back yard set up. I think however, it can (just) be done, so many thanks for the inspiration ! I'll look into its feasibilty !

Best regards,
Tel

Wonderful images as always Milby. I too like the look of NGC2403 sat amongst the stars.

Thanks for posting.

Regards. Peter.

Hi milby,

Great hyperstar shots, I have a question regarding the CGEM mount as some people have said that it has problems with long exposure, as your images are shorter f2 ones have you tried longer f10 ones with any success?

Jon

Thanks for the kind feedback, guys!

Jon, I haven't imaged at the back end yet so I can't answer your question. About the longest sub I've done is 5 minutes and I couldn't identify any tracking issues. Of course the image scale is more forgiving with Hyperstar.

Hi Jon,

I've no specific knowledge of the CGEM but just perhaps to clarify ? Is your inquiry here, directed to possible long exposure problems when the mount is guided or unguided ?

Best regards,
Tel

Either, its regard to the gear cogging issues reported on this mount for longer exposures. I was just wondering how many mins exposure you could get before it became an problem.

Hmmmm. hadn't heard that about the CGEM. It's been wonderful for my needs.

Hi Milby,

All looking extremely good ! I particularly like the "Leo Trio" !

Tell me this though; noting your earlier excellent image of NGC 7000, (The North America Nebula), have you thought of additionally using Ha or Olll particularly where such nebulae are concened ? (I presume they work with colour cameras such as yours) ?

Best regards,
Tel

Tel, thanks for the kind words. Yes, I have used H-alpha and O III filters and posted some of the results in the Nexstar graduates thread.
