I have wanted to image this object for years ever since I saw it in a picture. However, being a planetary nebula I always thought it would be far too small on the Hyperstar III rig to be interesting. As … Continue reading
Thank you Jim for publishing the New Forest Observatory’s “Virgo/Coma mega-mosaic” as today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day.
After a great deal of grief and pain I have worked out how to collimate the mini-WASP Sky 90s and they are now both sorted 🙂 Fourth clear night in a row, and no Moon, so I am imaging the … Continue reading
Added another 61 x 50-second subs acquired last night (12/05/2012) to the earlier Hyperstar III dataset.
