  1. Sometimes I experience this, yes. Some nights I try to set up etc before the bedtime routine but because I'm rushing I end up getting flustered and make mistakes 🙈🤣
  2. Absolutely spot on. I'm a single mum of 2 so every penny counts 🙂
  3. Thanks Carole. I've never come up against so many software issues this time round, beyond frustrating. Still, I managed it and it'll do 🙂
  4. But wouldn't I have to extract the lum while it's running through in APP, the same process as when I extracted Ha?
  5. Thanks. I've been ok with the processing side until I got M31, that was hard last year and then M33 was even harder but this one takes the biscuit 🤣
  6. Sadly, thats money I can't afford to be spending out. I will make do with what I have currently. If circumstances change, then I will get a pc
  7. Thank you. Yep, I wasn't gonna be beaten. Pleased with what's there 😀
  8. Thank you. I've not had anything like this in the 3 years I've been into astro 🤣
  9. Yes, I agree completely. Sadly, my laptop hasn't much ram or processing power so its starting to dislike and struggle a lot with APP now. I know I've probably lost a bit of the pizazz in the image but I can only work with what I have for now. Certainly can't afford a new laptop but will look into more ram at some point 🙂
  10. MY NEMESIS!! Jeez, this 3.5 hours of data has given me so much grief. First galaxy with the 269c pro TEC and I'm impressed, given how far away it actually is!! Have been troubleshooting for around a week! Bad flats, bad darks, light leaks, software problems, old snail's pace laptop causing issues. Nearly gave up. I didn't, so here is Messier 101 aka The Pinwheel Galaxy 🙂 Stacked in DSS, stretched and LP removal in APP and then Photoshop. 37x180s 26x240s plus darks and flats. I could've pushed the subs to 300s though. Skywatcher 72ED, 0.8 reducer/flattener, 269c pro TEC
  11. You can't beat a single star image with a star field. Beautiful colours and very sharp. Im a sucker for spikes too.
  12. Absolutely superb to see this as wide field as this and the colours are amazing! With this wide fov, I can really see it looks like a witches profile. Love it 👌
  13. I think this is so pretty, some really lovely detail, well done. I miss imaging with my 5" newt just for the nice fov.
  14. I absolutely adore this! The colours are superb, the detail, just so much to see. Well done 👏
