Posting a few of my recent images to start my new Page.

Had a decent run of imaging over the Winter months, better than previous years. Narrowband certainly makes it easier to cut out a lot of LP, skyglow and Moonlight so can image under poorer conditions than might otherwise be the case. Running everything by remote control from inside also makes it nicer to work in colder weather and the motorised dome usually follows correctly. Occasionally the piggyback telescope for guiding gets blocked from the sky and I have to go out to sort it.

Also been working on getting guiding working better at all declinations so that it's easier to image all over the sky rather than just my usual SE corner.

Started using Astro Pixel Processor for processing followed by Photoshop as usual.
