A couple of nights back we had an extremely rare clear, Moonless night. Gremlins were at work as I have hardly used the kit in almost a year – never mind. Managed to get 4 x 30-minute subs on the Belt of Orion using the 200mm lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs.
As there were only 4 subs the image is very noisy and the stacker doesn’t get rid of plane trails when 2 of the 4 subs have plane trails on them. However, what this image does show is that the framing of the Belt is just about perfect with the 200mm lenses and if I ever see another clear, Moonless night, I am going to have to return to this and get a load more subs.
