    Hello Paul,that is a wonderful picture of M1, Paul – well done! Nice tight star images.Did you take it from Macc. or elsewhere?I trust you’ll send it to the DSS Director.Go well!Jeremy

    Hello Jeremy,Yes I did. I find a CLS filter works extremely well, under these light polluted skies. Sadly that’s one reason for taking up CCD and Dslr imaging.I have sent this to the DSS.Compliments of Season.

    Very nice image Paul. Well done! Hope you’ll have a go at the nebula around the variable star RR Tau for the joint VSS/DSS project!Always have to get a VS plug in do I not? :-)Gary

    Hi Paul,Great image and reason to spur me on. I have been having a go at M42 with the following equipment.F9 6" triplet.Astro-Physics 900 GOTOSarlightXpress H9 with their filter wheel and loadstar off axis guiderMaxim DL for image capturePHD guidingHave not got the hang of star alignment with Maxim Dl that I have only just bought so use AIP4WIN v2.Like you quite new to colour imaging and I have not got used to tri-colour processing. Looks a lot easier using a DSLR. But I do not have one of these.Looks like a clear night so will have a go with M1.You ought to have a go with M42 Best of luckNick
