Solar Filters

Hello all,

With the fast approaching Solar Eclipse next Friday, Solar Filters are flying off the shelf. Some sizes are out of stock already.

http://www.ktectelescopes.ie/Solar-O...Solar-Filters/

Dont leave it too late if you are looking for one.

St Patricks day is a holiday, so our carriers are not delivering that day, so Monday and Wednesday are our only 2 despatch days next week for items to be delivered in time for the early Friday morning eclipse.

We do have plenty of Solar Filter Paper, 12" x 12" sheets, for those of you looking to make your own

We went to Rathbeggan Lakes, with Meath Astronomy Club today, and thankfully got a few clear patches.

Here are 2 of the photos, taken through a Skywatcher 80ED Scope, with a Seymour Solar Full Glass Filter.

This weekend in Athlone is one of the biggest weekends of the year for astronomers in Ireland.

Cosmos 2015 takes place at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, and includes talks by some amazing speakers, including John Zarnecki and Nick Howes.

We will be there with a good few tables of goodies, including an extensive collection of meteorites, Skywatcher telescope and accessories, Celestron telescopes and accessories, Atik CCD Cameras, Moravian CCD Cameras and plenty of scopes and books for the younger astronomers.

Check out the site for Cosmos 2015 here - http://www.midlandsastronomy.com/cos...ex-cosmos.html

Hopefully, we will see you there

Stephen.

We got out to do a bit of imaging the other night.

Sadr region in Cygnus. Both photos are from the same set of subs.
40 subs at 90 seconds each, at ISO800, taken with a modified Canon 1000D, through a Skywatcher 80ED Pro, on a Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro mount.



Photo 1 is with about 15 minutes spent processing in PS.





Photo 2 is with about 30 minutes spent processing in PS.





Still a good bit of data left to pull out of this, just havent got time at moment, plus I could darken the background sky a little.

Stephen.
