I know some won't like the purple fringing but it's fine with me. I think this little scope is a real bargain. Image was taken with an ED72 through a couple of Altair 183.s , one mono, one colour. Only 26 mins colour and 48 mins mono so could probably do with more data. I've played around with scopes and cameras for about 45 years now (and that's scary!) but its amazing how the amateur world has moved on. All good fun

Thanks for the comments. The original file is 128Mb and much more detailed but it gives an impression. Trevor

I see nothing in the META data to support your claim.

And who's to say that if we were to get into space to view it with the naked eye there wouldn't be "Purple Haze runnin through my Brain."

Thanks for the comments. It was a test really to try out the two new cameras. They seem to do a good job.

You always get such contradictory advice on the net I like to try things out myself. It’ll do me .

Wouldn't a Hubbe image show Diffraction Spikes and no CA?

Hi Trevor - It’s not apparent to me, but exactly which ED72 did you use for this wonderful photo?

Very nice! I had a SW72ED at one time - I enjoyed excellent views through it.

Off course it would but don't be so harsh on the OPgrin.gif

 

I see some CA but the nebulae itself is exquisite..

 

Wish i could do it..

I agree, It is an amazing pic.

I was referring to sunnyday's comment in post # 5 which I interpreted as him thinking the pic was taken by the Hubble.....
