M13 from Michigan

Posted By Joe Bruessow

I took another pic of M13 last night... not so good of seeing but I'm pretty happy with the initial result. Meade 12" UHTC OTA, MI250 mount, ST2000XM, Luminance = 120 sec. x 15, 2x2 binned, R, G, B each = 120 sec. x 3, 3x3 binned.

Opinions? Too saturated?

M27 from Michigan last night

Posted By Joe Bruessow

This an M27 taken using my ST2000XM through my Meade 12" OTA atop my MI250. 24 x 5 min lums (2x2 binned), and 15 min 3x3 binned RGB channels.

I am still working on processing but am pleased with the initial results.

Anyone making a reasonably priced Eq. platform?

Posted By Joe Bruessow

I know of Tom O, and Johnsonians... but several other companies have disappeared now that I am interested in one (figures).

Anyone know of any other good companies where you have actually seen their platforms or kits?

Thanks,

Joe

I posted the color version several days ago, but I like the b&w h-alpha channel too...

Here is my version of M33... Orion 80ED, ST2000XM.

11 x 900s Luminance binned 1x1

Why ratings disappear?

Posted By Joe Bruessow

This may have been answered before and if so, I apologize, but I have noticed that over time the number of ratings I have received in the classified section drops. In other words, if I don't buy/sell things for a period of time my ratings/ feedback number drops. I think I had 84 positive feedback ratings some time ago and now I only have 81... Is this because the person who left the rating changed it? Left Astromart? Was booted off?

Answers are appreciated...
