Re: H-Alpha filters for color CCD camera

Hey Frank, The IDAS LIGHT POLLUTION SUPPRESSION (LPS) FILTER blocks light pollution while retaining color. Pricy, but you'd expect it would be for all the bandpass trickery. https://optcorp.com/products/idas-light-pollution-suppression-lps-filter-w-sct-adapter-2-round-mounted?utm_source=bing&utm_med...

Re: IC 59 and IC 63

That's really lovely Roger. More so as I was out 'till midnight struggling with the new OAG and a camera that wouldn't cooperate.

This one was on TV :o A personal best as far as the Red Planet's concerned. Never seen it so high in the sky and that makes a great difference.

Re: Image posting

OK Tim. So one can upload an image to the forum directly from a computer file? I've always had to post the image to my website and then use a link here on the forum. No joy with a direct copy and paste operation.

Image posting

For many years I've been saving my images/pictures to my personal website. And there's a question as to how many thousand pictures can be posted until my host gets involved. Where are you guys caching your images these days?

Re: Solar Surface Prominence

That's phenomenal Tim. FWIW last night was First Light for my own ASI174mm uncooled mono. Instead of imagine, using it as a large format guide camera . Purchased last month for $499. This month price has jumped to $599.

Re: IS passes through Big Dipper and Jupiter-Saturn next to Milky Way

After visiting Roger's Westport observatory I can confirm that he has REALLY dark sky and a low horizon to boot.
