I didn’t notice a bad stitch in the original data. This is a 4-pane mosaic using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and Trius M26C OSC CCDs.
An unusual grouping had me out last night with the Canon 5D MkII and 15mm Canon fisheye lens. It was 10:30 p.m. and still fairly light outside (darkness doesn’t start until Midnight!). Vega, Arcturus, Spica and Jupiter provided the Quartet, … Continue reading
This is last night’s data taken between 11 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. on the Sky 90 array. 18 x 10-minute subs, and a star has been labelled for reference. One bright asteroid in the FOV only clear in the averaged … Continue reading

Beautiful clear night last night, and a non-intrusive Moon for imaging in the Leo region. 12 x 5-minutes subs on the M100 region and the speed of the Hyperstar really shows through. Need more data on this for a quality … Continue reading
Today (19/03/2018) saw the publication of EPOD number 99 for me. A big 2-frame panorama of the Bellatrix region with a large galaxy cluster on the right hand side of the frame. Look out for EPOD number 100 next month.
Clear until 9:00 p.m. last night with a very intrusive Moon. Saw that Ceres was well-placed in Cancer so put the Sky 90 array on the region. Ended up with 18 x 15-minute subs. Can even see Ceres in the … Continue reading
From last night, 21 x 10-minute subs on the Sky 90 array. Blazing half Moon causing trouble but as it was a beautiful clear (bitterly cold) night I imaged anyway. Couldn’t be bothered to process out the plane trail.
