Not having the day job has given me a new imaging experience – the ability to image during June 🙂 With the day job I used to give up imaging half way through May (if not earlier) due to the shortening evenings. Last night I started setting up at 11:30 p.m. and finished imaging this region in Cygnus at 2:00 a.m. just as the clouds started to roll in from the SW. Also had a good view of the ISS and ATV4 earlier on in the evening – so a pretty good night all round.
This image shows a region in Cygnus with a nice pair of Carbon stars, some nice faint nebulosity (hard not to find some emission nebulosity in Cygnus) and the stars 30, 31 & 32 Cygni in the centre of the frame. I took 13 x 10-minute subs using all 3 scopes and M26C cameras, but this is just the Sky 90 data. Excellent seeing conditions last night.
