Another 6-minute pass of the ISS last night 23/07/2018 and a quick shot of the Summer sky with Mars low down in the south.
The sky was too light for me to see the Cygnus pass.
I added some extra data to the top (north) of this one and reprocessed the lot again. Canon 200mm prime lenses with the Trius M26C OSC CCDs – a horizontal 2-frame mosaic with each frame in portrait mode.
No new deep-sky images until we get some darkness returning to the southern UK towards the end of this month. At this time of year we only have twilight throughout the evening and it doesn’t get really dark. I have imaged in June/early July before now, and only recently realised the images were much noisier than I expected – I now know why.
A complete reprocess of the data incorporating Noel Carboni’s AstroFlat plugin.
51 x 20-minute subs using the 3 x Sky 90s and M26C OSC CCDs on the MiniWASP array at the New Forest Observatory.
Only been able to recently process this one properly thanks to Noel Carboni’s new AstroFlat plugin.
This is a 2-framer using the 200mm lenses and Trius M26C OSC CCDs with each frame a total of 12-hours integration time using 20-minute subs.

Here is an image of last night’s (27/05/2018) 6-minute ISS pass at 10:27 p.m. As you can see it is still pretty light, and this is not helped at all by a nearly full Moon blazing away at the bottom of the image.
Clear night but half a Moon blazing away. Never mind there’s a nice long 6-minute pass of the Space Station due at 22:35. In fact for the next week there are 6-minute passes due every night!
