Kemble’s Cascade in Camelopardalis. Image captured using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the M26C OSC CCDs. 31 subs at 5-minutes per sub.
The Monkey head nebula. A composite image using data from the original Hyperstar I on a Clestron Nexstar C11 SCT, with a tiny H9C OSC CCD, and two lots of data from the 200mm lens and an M26C OSC CCD.
This image of the Veil nebula in Cygnus incorporates all the data I have on the object. So this image includes Hyperstar III on the C11 data, Sky90 (2-frame mosaic including narrowband) data, and the Canon 200mm lenses with the … Continue reading
For some totally unknown reason I don’t think I’ve published the latest (stable?) incarnation of the MiniWASP array. So here it is! The lower section of the MiniWASP (the black Aluminium box housing) contains 3 x Sky90s and top right … Continue reading
I managed to get 22 x 2-minute subs using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the ASI 2600MC Pro OSC CMOS camera on beautiful Sirius last night. Given the bright Moon overhead I am very pleased at the final result. … Continue reading
I put together the 72 x 15-minute subs (UV/IR cut) and 30 x 20-minute subs (L-Enhance) taken on the 200mm lenses with the L-Enhance and UV/IR cut filters – and then took away all the stars to get this result.
I got another 8 x 20-minute subs last night (before we got completely fogged out) to go with the earlier 10 x 20-minute subs giving a 6-hour total exposure time. This is with the 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras and the … Continue reading
Noel worked his magic on this superb California nebula process which shows the extent of the “nose” on the front end of the nebula which is often missing in smaller field-of-view images.
Surprisingly, even a region which is predominantly stars can benefit from a little star reduction.
Another star reduced version of an oldie. This time it’s the North America/Pelican nebula region of Cygnus taken with the 200mm lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. This is a 3-frame mosaic.
