Some shots of the Sun from this morning, just before the typical clouds rolled in, the active region everyone has greatly enjoyed is now departing our Earthly view, and this, thanks to "British Summer" is the only shot I managed of it.

Slapped together image, but compares the D300 without focal reducer (my usual DSO imaging setup) to the ATIK 414EX with a focal reducer (my future imaging setup) - FOV is reasonably compatible, though big objects are either going to be crops of details or painstaking mosaics.

My biggest concern is the focal reducer is also a field flatterner, which means my already corrected scope is going to be over corrected... hoping the crop factor of the sensor removes most of the distortion, as I've used it before with the D300 (a bigger chip) and only had to crop a small amount of the distortion out.

Story
Tagline
British freelance photographer, amateur astronomer, traveller and barman!
Introduction
I am passionate about astronomy and travel, love to photograph the universe around me, from people close to home, right up to galaxies far, far away.

Life is to be explored, enjoyed and horizons broadened, which means I am probably going to need a bigger telescope some day.

Fantastic place, friendly, rather homely and really yummy BBQ nights. Clean facilities, not to far out of the center of Cairns and really didn't want to leave by the end of my time there.
