This is why I love doing this, just myself & a couple of others plus the stars drifting in the night sky.

Lovely work sir ...  :)

 

Couldn't help but notice that the 1000D had it's rear screen lit up in every shot , this will be getting warm and generating a lot more noise with it being backed onto the sensor , much better to have the display disabled.

Fantastic work tich,

 

I really enjoyed your video, this really is the life of an amateur astronomy, setup -> image -> clouds roll in -> tear down -> go home! Expect for me, I'm already in my backgrarden. Just out of couriosity where is your dark site?

 

Clear Skies

 

 

 

Neil.

I didn't know you could switch the display off Steve no wonder i get nasty gradients lol, thanks for the tip I'll check it out & switch the damn thing off next imaging session :-)

I can only say that it is on the Northants Leics border as it's on private land & we have permission from the owners. In fact the owner came & had a chat with us on Saturday night & had a look at Jupiter through Simons beautiful Refractor & looked at it on the screen on my laptop as I were capturing it.
It's not bad as its in the midlands with a pretty good all round view. Even better when the moon goes down & the lights go off in the towns on the horizons as it does get pretty dark there. The other plus is that its hard standing to so no soggy knees when doing a polar alignment. :-)
