Re: Data Share

If you join www.astrobin.com they have a group where people upload their data for you to do just what you are asking for. There are literally tons of different data sets that you can choose. They even have Hubble Data there. Try that and like Doug said any one of us would be happy to share some data...

Re: Really Cool Interactive Site

Has anyone checked out this site? It allows you to look at all the targets in several different ways. You can choose, RGB, Narrowband, Sloan Near Infrared and several others. It's beyond cool what you can see with this site. I found 4 targets that I never even new existed around Orion and Cygnus. Ta...

Really Cool Interactive Site

I cannot believe I did not know about this site. This is the coolest site I've found yet. It is interactive sort of like Stellarium but way better. You can even hit a drop down menu and choose how you want the images displayed. There are like 15 different choices in it. NB, OSC, Sloan, Near Infrared...

Re: Heart Nebula

Thanks Mike. believe it or not I shot this over a year ago and it looked so bad that I never posted it. I went through old data last week looking for images with a lot of subs and found this and reprocessed it. I guess a year of Pixinsight has paid off. I'll have to post the original so you can see ...

Heart Nebula

Here is the center of the Heart. I shot this a while back and never processed it. Well actually I did but it sucked so bad I forgot about it. So here it is with a year of processing under my belt. It's 26x1200 in HA, 22x1200 in OIII and 18x1200 in SII Hope you like it. Sean PS... Am I the only one p...

Elephant Bi Color with Pixel Math

Just having some fun with some data I found. I only got 8x1200 of Ha and OIII of this with the WO GT71 and my ATIK One camera. I sold the camera and never finished the data. I played around in pixel math to pull this out. Noisy but still fun.

Re: Rosette with RC8 Revision 1

Thanks MIke. I have redone it yet again. I'll post it later today. It's all I have to work with so I keep playing with it. I even went on Astrobin and downloaded some of Chris Gomez's files to play with.

Re: Meteor at Home

Thanks Guys. My processing pretty much sucks! :what: :jumphappy: I freaked out when I looked at the images and saw that. I remember I kept seeing these little things zinging around in the sky while I was setting up the shot and paid no attention to it. I figured all my years of partying was paying a...

1st Milky Way Shot

Finally got the chance to try capturing the Milkyway with my Nikon D750. I'm going to get proficient at this no matter how long it takes. Only had an hour until the sun came up but it was more of a test to see if I could do it more than anything else. The Nikon 12-24mm lens has a lot of coma in it s...

Re: when to do a meridian flip?

There is and I think it is on the Stellarium Scope site. Not positive. In SgPro it tells you the meridian time which is a great help. Different targets are going to have different times as you know. If you are shooting the same target each night mark the time for tonight and then deduct about 5 to 1...

Yep no problem as long as you use the DEC Bar and two of their weights. I just used it this weekend with my WO GT 71 and did not have a problem

Re: Greetings From New Yorks Finger Lakes!

Glad you found your way here. It's a great place to learn. I started here two years ago after the purchase of my first scope and all of these guys were really patient and helpful with me.

Stick around and ask questions.

Re: Weather

Same here. It's been like this for months. I'm beginning to think the tin foil hat wearing whackos might be right about the government and their HARP mission to seed the clouds.

I'm sick of it.

Re: Time lapse at Gayle Beck Lodge

Hey Gordon great job as always. Question for you? Could you touch on how long you set your interval between shots? I know there is not one fits all but just the basics would be helpful. I always get a little confused between milky way imaging with or without the Rhino slider or when I'm imaging some...
