The Sadr Region in Cygnus

A clear Moonless night last night so I returned to the Sadr image that was ruined by thin high cloud last outing. This time it remained clear and I managed to grab 28 x 15-minute subs with the 200mm lenses … Continue reading

Another clear night last night – totally unexpected as the satellite picture showed cloud all around me. Counting my blessings I went out and fired up the 200mm lenses and the ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras. This is the right … Continue reading

60 x 15-minute subs on the IC405/410 region in Auriga

I got another 20 subs at 15-minutes per sub on the IC405/410 region last night using the 200mm lenses and ASI 2600MC-Pro cameras. The bad news is, the image just keeps on improving. So where do I stop? 80 subs? … Continue reading

Another 20 subs added to the IC410 image.

Got another 20 subs at 15-minutes per sub on IC410 last night, so added that to the 20 subs I got the night before and this is the result. Clearly an improvement, so I might try and get another 20 … Continue reading
