M17 and IC 4628 from the window

Thanks Richard! We are seeing more clearer skies this month, so I have managed to add more data to NGC 6188, and I have replaced the images with the newer ones in the previous post. On top of that, here are a couple more from this season. There's still time before they're gone from the sky this year...

NGC 6188 in SHO

This year's summer season hasn't been particularly great weather-wise for Singapore. But there were a couple of good nights, and perhaps another handful of average nights which were still acceptable for imaging. Here's NGC 6188 and NGC 6164-5, the first of this year's summer objects from my window. ...

Nice capture of the opposition! Interesting results...I'd be splitting hairs to tell any difference between the OSC and mono

Re: Looking for an upgrade

Yeah I was referring to this site. It's a bit slow because SG is small, but if you're not in a hurry you might find something that fits your requirements.

Re: Looking for an upgrade

Hi, It would be helpful if you could share what objects you'd prefer looking at. For example, if you're mostly interested in planets, a Mak (or any long focal length scope) would do better than a Newt of the same aperture. In most cases, you'd also want to get more aperture. The NexStar 4se falls sh...

Re: Window Astrophotography 2019

Here's one of my first attempts at galaxy imaging from my window. Unlike narrowband images, I am facing the full force of Singapore's light pollution in this case. As such, this is not a fantastic image by any long shot, but you can see most of the brighter parts of the structure. So here's Centauru...
