The Cone nebula – a mini-WASP single framer

This image is a single frame from the mini-WASP and comprises 12 subs at 10-minutes per sub, so a 2-hour total exposure time (again well short of the 8 hours needed).  The reason for only one frame is that due to hiccups I only got 5 subs for the upper frame and the data difference was just too big to match reasonably 🙁  Still, once again it shows me what is required for mini-WASP imaging, and I am now very glad that I resurrected the Hyperstar III as I may need to use this instrument to grab the faint data to paste into the mini-WASP bigger frame.  I reckon composites are going to be the order of the day at the New Forest Observatory.
