Re: Messier 103

Would love to see the Jewel Box Brian, a trip to New Zealand is on our list when I retire in 4 years time, going to visit relatives and purchase a telescope whilst there for 3 weeks and explore the wonders of the southern hemisphere.

Re: Mars 3rd November

Thanks Brian. It is a Messier Mc 100, at f14 gives a nice large image. Cannot do planetary with the skywatcher 150p f5 so picked up the Messier for lunar and planetary observations.

Perseus Double cluster

An image of the Perseus double cluster, well a portion of it anyway. I could only obtain a few subs as there was a bit too much cloud cover at times

Mars 3rd November

A couple of images of Mars from tonight using an asi120 and Bresser f14. Deep sky alas was washed out by persistent cloud cover. It did give a nice clear patch around Mars.

Re: Mars 22 Oct 2020 Eyepiece Sketch

Really impressed with your eyepiece sketches Bob, an art that has suffered from the imaging era. I remember sketching DSOs and something I keep meaning to rekindle.

Re: NGC 7635 The Bubble nebula

Thanks Brian. I really do need to fit the Tri-band filter to the OSC camera to bring more detail out. The filter is still in its box. Next mission is to replace current filter with it and refocus.

Re: Messier 51

Thanks both. I agree Brian, I often look at books I bought in the 1970s and 80s and remember being amazed at the wonderful images contained within. I never would thought that the amateur could obtain the results we do today with very modest equipment in ones own garden with less than favorable seein...
