In order to show that the “dust” in the widefield Altair image really is tens of thousands of stars – I cropped the image in to Altair to show the enormous density of stars in this region. And yes – you’ve guessed it – this area lies within the Milky Way.
Just a couple of nights ago I managed to get a 2-framer on the Altair/Barnard’s “E” region in Aquila on the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras. Each frame is 5-hours of 10-minute exposures, so this is a 10-hour image in all.
I loaded up the pinhole camera last December Solstice to get a Solstice-to-Solstice solargraph over the New Forest Observatory domes. Here is the result of a 6-month exposure time.
It’s been a long time since I posted on here – sorry for the absence.
After a very long break I have just resurrected the photomicroscopy rig. Here is one I’ve done before just so I can get back into it again, gently.
As this has been restarted again as a Winter project I hope to post a lot of new microscope images for you to enjoy over the next few months.
Taken with the Canon 5D MkII and the Canon MR-14EX ringlite.

The missus spotted my favourite spider in the Roses just now, so out came the macro and I caught him 🙂
A new Prime Number has been found using the mega-computing array at the New Forest Observatory. The new number is: 4324748322195*2^1290000-1
110 hours and 38 minutes later out came a Sierpinski pyramid in Rigid.Ink black PLA, 162mm along a base edge and 0.2mm resolution.
Good use of camouflage in this murderous ambush!
