As well as capturing asteroid JO25 2014 on the single Sky 90/M26C – I also managed to grab 16 subs on the two 200mm lenses with the Trius M26Cs.

Sub number 12 (counting down from the top) is missing as I had cloud over the region during that 5-minutes.

As I couldn’t properly process this data myself, I sent it over to Noel Carboni in Florida USA who did the most superb job as you can see below.  Thank you Noel!!

A 200mm lens 2-framer taken over 2 nights this week – Procyon & Gomeisa in Canis Minor.

No Moon and some clear sky between 8:15 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Set up the 2 x 200mm lenses on the Procyon region for the first of 2 frames containing Procyon and Gomeisa.  Got the Procyon frame and cropped it down to fit with some earlier Procyon data taken with the Sky 90.  Here is the Registar bolt-together of the 2 datasets.

11 x 9-minute subs with the 200mm lenses and M26C cameras from last night.

Around 3-hours of 10-minutes subs from the Sky 90 and M25C from earlier.

And here is a 2-frame mosaic combining the IC2087 and SAO76573 frames taken with the Canon 200mm prime lenses and M26C OSC CCDs.

Taken a couple of nights back, this is 10-hour’s worth of 20-minute subs centred on SAO67573 one frame to the right of IC2087 also taken with the Canon 200mm lenses and M26C OSC CCDs.  

At the top/centre there is a very interesting nebula Vdb 27.  The whole region of course is full of dust and dark nebulosity all part of the Taurus giant molecular cloud.

A rather “quick and dirty” image of the region.  I need to get a lot more, deeper, subs of this region if I can this winter.

Unbelievably last night was the 3rd clear night in a row – Moonless too!!

So – making best use of this gift I managed to grab the final left hand frame on the North America 3-pane mosaic.

This is a 29-hour total exposure time marathon using 20-minute sub-exposures.

2 x Canon 200mm prime lenses with 2 x Trius M26C OSC CCDs.

The first 3-framer with the Canon kit.
