I've been at this hobby for almost 20 years now, but tonight marks a milestone in data capture.  Tonight, I combined all the data over the last 4 years of Messier 51 (the Whirlpool Galaxy) into a single image.  This data was captured start in 2015, and consisted of 10 minute exposures.  This year I started capturing 20 minute exposures with the same mount, telescope and camera.

Here is the result:

Live All Sky Camera

Recently, I have been playing with my Altair Astro GP-Cam (They don't make it anymore, but it has been replaced with this unit: https://www.altairastro.com/Altair-GPCAM-AR0130-MONO-Planetary-Camera-Auto-Guider.html).  It came with a 150 degree lens, so I have mounted inside a cheap £3 dome, and placed it outside South Common Observatory.  

At the moment, the stream is being captured on Windows 10 with Altair Capture, which adds the date/time stamp. From there, it is streamed to Xeoma CCTV software via a simple VLC desktop RTSP stream.  Xeoma then converts to MJPEG for display here, and overlays the compass.
