Beautiful clear evening last night and I put the Sky 90 array onto the Kemble’s Cascade region. For around 8 years I have wanted to get a 4-framer of this one but didn’t have the time to allocate to it. … Continue reading
New high-speed flash units for early 2016 – light pulse duration 25-microseconds, light pulse energy 100 Joules.
Further to my earlier post below, I have upgraded the spec as I will be using a different capacitor for these custom units. The spec now reads: Light output power 100 Joules. Light pulse duration 25-microseconds (1/40,000th of a second). … Continue reading
This was a test shot having removed camera 2 for re-flattening on the laser pen rig. Short gap in the clouds gave me half an hour’s imaging time on the M57 region in Lyra. But only half an hour means … Continue reading

I just found a folder full of Carbon stars that I had not loaded up to Flickr or the NFO site. Liked this one the best, and decided to make it the Image of the Month for September 2015 🙂 … Continue reading
Only 9 x 10-minute subs from the Sky 90s and M26Cs went into this one – but as that is clearly enough – it has got me re-thinking how best to use the Mega-WASP array for my work.
Used the 3 x Sky 90s and M26Cs on the Mega-WASP array to image the Epsilon Cassiopeiae region together with Greg’s Lambda. Clear Moonless evening 🙂
A beautiful clear, Moonless night last night – and I think it lasted ALL night. However, as I had just a 5-hour return trip to Herstmonceaux to give a talk, I couldn’t manage imaging beyond midnight. Decided on Tarazed and … Continue reading
Two very nice people turned up completely unannounced to see the New Forest Observatory. As they had come all the way from the States it would have been churlish to say no 🙂 You can read their story here under … Continue reading
