    Default Uranus - September 2nd 2018 5SE and NexImage 5



    Quick little rant to start the thread off, been having a lot of problems when I'd go to set up the scope, few weeks ago a piece of plastic that on the laser finder scope for the 5SE ended up dry rotting and broke off so I had no Finder scope, Was saving up money to buy the AVX mount ended up having decide to buy a new Finder scope which I'm sure a lot of you would've gone.

    Or to buy the Celestron StarSense AutoAlign, and I decided to go with the Celestron StarSense AutoAlign, Ended up paying full price, but my local nature center gets a donation sent to them Quarterly from Amazon, So to me it's worth it, and I know well Matthew you could've just bought a Finder scope and donated cash to your charity!

    I know but the problem didn't start before the finder scope issue last couple of times I setup the scope so late I've had my problems with trying to find my alignment stars, I'm never amazed how one night I have no problem the next time I end up having a lot of problems, been having to combat dew so bad that my telescope drips water off to the ground, as if someone poured water on it,even with a dew shield the correcter plate got covered in dew.
    That's where I'll end the rant at.

    But Celestron StarSense helped me a lot on September 2nd I had a small problem and that was mainly due to not doing all the steps I managed to get working fine so I got to check out 21p which was really cool, shame I didn't have a Imaging Camera.


    Well here's Uranus the color is a bit off I didn't have enough time to try and get the color just right, wwgeb told me to use the Y800 from now on and just add the color in RegiStax 6.

    Not sure what exact color to expect from Uranus ... but the blue haze in your image is good enough for me!

    Only caught Uranus once visually last year with my C6SE.

    It looked closer to robins egg blue for me at the time.

    A little lighter blue than your pic.
