And from a couple of nights ago – here is the Sadr region with the Canon 200mm lens array using 10 x 15-minute subs.

Should get some more time on this one and then try to grab the frame to the right as well.

Got the 2 x Trius M26C cameras VERY flat and very well focused last night before starting a run on the North America nebula region.

Managed to get 17 x 20-minute subs before the Moon rose above the rooftops in the NE.  Result below.

Here is the New Forest Observatory Image of the Month – last bit of data acquired only last night.

This is a 2-framer of the Heart nebula region taken using the Sky 90 array and the M26C OSC CCDs.  The lower frame (captured last night) is 8-hours worth of 20-minute subs and the upper frame is 5-hours worth of 20-minute subs.  The frames were assembled in Registar and processing was carried out in Photoshop CS3 using Noel Carboni’s Photoshop Actions for Astronomy.

Although this could do with still more data I need to move onto something new for my next target.

Got today’s Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) with a Sky90 array shot of the Carbon star La Superba.

Thank you Jim at EPOD for continuing to publish my work.
