I put the 200mm lenses (and Optolong L-enhance filters with the 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras) onto the Gamma Cassiopei nebula last night. Because of gremlins I only managed to get 10 x 20-minute subs when I should have had 42 … Continue reading
This is a 4-frame mosaic taken using the Sky90s and M26C OSC CCDs on the MiniWASP array. The image comprises 18 x 10-minute subs per frame.
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 very red star IS NOT a Carbon star! It is 119 Tauri (SAO94628) one of the brightest, reddest, stars in the sky. This image was captured using a Hyperstar version III on a Celestron Nexstar11 GPS SCT. Camera used … Continue reading
The open cluster in the centre is NGC1817 in the constellation Taurus. This is 12 x 20-minute subs using the 3 x Sky90s and 3 x M26C OSC CCDs on the MiniWASP array at the New Forest Observatory.
I just took a close look at the old Merak 4-framer taken with the Sky90/M26C OSC CCD array, and I couldn’t believe the number of satellite trails and colour blotches that I had left in there. So I got rid … Continue reading
This is a very deep image of the Pleiades (M45) in Taurus. This comprises 27 x 40-minute subs (18-hours) on the Sky90 array with M26C OSC CCDs.
This single-frame Sky90/M26C OSC CCD image contains a lot of interesting bits and pieces. The data comprises 8-hours and 10-minutes of 10-minute subs with a UV/IR cut filter. The bright orange/yellow star lying on the centre line about 1/3rd of … Continue reading
Another complete reprocess. This time it is the Heart nebula, captured on the Sky90/M26C MiniWASP array. A two frame mosaic totalling 39 x 20-minute subs (13 hours).
