Hi,
Cannot image M101 yet, but I would like to in the near future, but until that night comes I will have to make do with Saturn,(which I could make do with every night if the weather permitted). But I would never get bored with Saturn. This image was taken on Friday night @ 10.30pm with Toucam pro II and x2 barlow and processed with Registax and a load of help from other members from last Saturday who were showing us novices what and how to do thing correctly, THX.
(i have to work on the colour a bit more in the future)

Well Tony, I would certainly be pleased if I had produced that image. Well done.

Hi Tony,

Very impressive indeed... You must be well chuffed... :-)

Did you do the RGB shift thing in Registax - it'll probably get rid of the blue fringes.. Also did you use your IRB filter? Finally, how many frames did you stack....

Cheers,  John

Tony,

That is a really good photo. I have had the scope out 3 times recently but I have always been below a 27 mile deep cloud bank!

Perhaps I should be more dedicated & be up til the early hours, like Chris with that meteor.
Hope Chris has another evening.

Hi
John I tried that RGB thingy and it did take those blurry bits away and there were just over 1000 frames which were stacked




and the IRB filter was used.
