From M42 to M78
Only 2 x 20-minute subs with the 200mm lenses – but it shows the way to proceed with this one. Obviously a 20-minute sub is way too long for M42, but just fine for the Horsehead region. So a fair … 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
29-hours of IC410/IC405 Data
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.
Rosette nebula with the 200mm Canon lenses
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
Reprocess of all Hyperstar on all Sky90 Data – Median Mix in Registar
Another reprocess of the Rosette data – all the Hyperstar data was overlaid on all the Sky90 data using Registar and a mean/median mix.
Composite IC410/IC405 Nebulae in Auriga
And a last reprocess (maybe) on this one too. This is around 12-hours of Sky90 data added to 10-hours and 40-minutes of 200mm lens data giving a composite image of the IC410/IC405 region in Auriga – a total (composite) exposure … Continue reading
Composite California Nebula
I added 16-hours of Sky90 data (which added to the bright nebula core) to the 8-hours of 200mm data (which provided the only data for the faint “nose”) to get this result.
The Rosette Nebula – A Work in Progress
Here are just 10 x 20-minute subs on the 200mm lenses, ASI 2600MC Pro OSC CMOS cameras and the Optolong L-Enhance filters. If I can get 30 or more subs on this one it should start looking quite nice.
IC410 & IC405 as You Might Not Have Seen Them Before
Finally got a total of 32 x 20-minute subs on this one, so calling it a day on this for now. IC410/IC405 region taken on the 2 x Canon 200mm prime lenses with 2 x ASI 2600MC Pro OSC CMOS … Continue reading
Now 6-hours on the IC410/IC405 Region
Got a little more data on the IC410/IC405 region last night with the 200mm lenses, ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras and the Optolong L-Enhace filters. I am now up to 18 x 20-minute subs. If I can get another 12 … Continue reading
