I do not remember the specifications of the extension, the rest were taken with the same mount and the telescope, but with a better camera. I have compiled the different images into one image with gimp fresh.

We're looking for space/astronomy pictures to discuss as part of a new podcast!

We would like to see the ones that you have found that simply blew you away, or even better, ones you have taken yourself!

If you have any amazing astronomical pics, get them in to us by posting them in this thread or emailing them to Chris@thenakedscientists.com.

We look forward to seeing space through your eyes...




I took this image of M42 during a Rent a Scope free trial.

The concept of renting time on top notch scopes is great and may present an alternative to buying a telescope and imaging equipment to some folk.

The equipment would be beyond budget for most private astronomers plus you get to explore the night sky during the day - so no freezing your wotsits off  ::)

I took this one using a Canon 500d directly mounted on a Meade LX90 from my attick window.

Mootle's moon.jpg before-after sharpening with GIMP* ...




I may have overdone the sharpening a bit @ 70: maybe ~50 would have been optimal.

You could try this for starters, the software makes things nice and easy to get great results:

http://www.global-rent-a-scope.com/register-on-gras/

When I used my free trial I used this free http://www.stellarium.org/ software to identify what was in the night sky local to the scope in order to get the most from the limited time. You can assign targets for the remote scope from its database and it will motor to that view. Local weather permitting you can view the image directly on your pc. Once you get a nice image on screen you can follow the instructions to capture the image using some pretty neat imaging equipment by selecting the filters you want to apply. The image is then processed and sent to you directly.

If you get the bug you can sign up and pay to view a wide range of top notch scopes situated all over the world.

This image isn't actually mine. It's an artist's concept of a black hole.
