  1. Excellent shot Ian, you’re right, the spikes really add to the composition.

  2. Thanks David, Looks like I made BAA Picture of the week with this:

  3. great stuff ian been a fan of your images for a while, thinking of going to barbados in 2014 with sum friends will need lots of guidence can you help? regards stuy

  4. I was also out, and I agree it was a wonderful-looking sky on Wednesday morning (even in London). You have captured a very fine image.

    Could you explain more about the process you used? Why do you take, say, 2 60s red exposures in succession rather than one 120s exposure? Why 5 greens in succession? Do you derotate each of the videos individually, or put them together and then de-rotate them? I’m taking just one of R,G and B (but 90s) and derotating them individually, then combining using WinJUPOS (replacing my old method of combining in Photoshop).

    Best,

    David

    • Hi David

      Just found your comment in all the hundreds of spam comments!

      I will write a blog entry explaining my process for you.

      Cheers
      Ian.

  5. Excellent detail here Ian – and the colours are fantastic in this shot – I particularly like the turquoise mid planet. I’ll look forward to your work on this as I intend to attempt some images, yours serve as (unobtainable) benchmarks 🙂

  6. Thank you for your efforts here great help.

  7. This is great information. Thank you very much for all the effort you put into this.

  8. Great blog post thanks for posting

  9. Excellent composition and atmosphere to these shots! I hear a lot about the astro-trac.
    Having tried to find this when it was near the setting sun (and forgetting half my telescope at home!) I thought it had gone from the skies in March – have to read up and stay current from the looks of it – thanks for highlighting the fact it’s not gone forever yet – hopefully it will still be around for the star party at Kelling?

    • Hi David,

      Thanks for your comments. In fact, the comet is now circnumpolar from these latitudes so it never sets! It’s slowly moving towards the pole and is becoming easier to image even though it’s getting fainter. I think you will see better shots with bigger telescopes as it climbs into darker skies.

  23. Hi Ian,
    Amazing picture of Comet C/2013 US10 (Catalina)!
    I’m planning on writing about the comet for the website of The Weather Network, in Canada. Could I have permission to use your image in the article. I would credit you and provide a link back to your website.
    Thanks.
    Scott

  25. Love that image. Great detail and colour. A great APOD. Would it be possible for you to give a brief description on how it was obtained and processed?

  26. Ich liebe diese Bilder. Ich interessiere mich schon sehr lange für Astronomie! Unvorstellbar was es im Universum gibt und welche geile Wunder wir noch sehen werden.
