Yet another 200mm lens and Trius M26C OSC CCD 2-framer. This time it’s the Aldebaran region including part of the Hyades and open cluster NGC1647 (top left). Only 2-hours (total) of 5-minute subs.
These images of the Caph & Ruchbah regions of Cassiopeia are 2-frame mosaic taken using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. Each frame of the Caph image was 2-hours of 10-minute subs, and each frame … Continue reading
A 2-frame mosaic using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. This is Castor (upper right blue star) and Pollux (lower left yellow star) in a Gemini star field. Castor frame was 20-subs at 10-minutes per … Continue reading
I think this is probably my favourite image taken with the 200mm lenses and Trius M26C OSC CCDs so far. This is a 2-frame mosaic of M44 (the Beehive cluster in the centre) “Stargated” by the 4 central stars of … Continue reading
This is a 2-frame mosaic using the 200mm lenses and M26C OSC CCDs of the Cocoon nebula region. Total exposure time is 5 hours using 10-minute subs.
A composite image of the North America/Pelican nebula region. Taken on the 200mm lenses and M26C OSC CCDs this is 19 x 5-minutes and 17 x 20-minutes combined giving a total exposure time of 10.42 hours.
This is a 4-frame mosaic using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. Each frame is approximately 2-hours of 10-minute subs.
This is a single framer of the Double Cluster and Stock 2 region taken with the 200mm lenses and M26C OSC CCDs on 2016-08-30. This is 10 x 15-minute subs and I have applied the Akira Fujii effect to bring … Continue reading
From 2016-10-22 is the North America & Pelican nebulae taken using the 200mm lenses and the M26C OSC CCDs. 6-hours of 20-minute subs. From 2016-10-20 & 2016-10-26 is a 2-frame mosaic of the Sadr & Crescent region in Cygnus again … Continue reading
