This is a composite image of the IC2087 region combining 17 x 20-minute subs from the 200mm lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs, and 26 x 15-minute subs from the 200mm lenses and the ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras. … Continue reading
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
A zoomed-out image of M31 taken on the Canon 200mm prime lenses and ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras together with a zoomed-in image taken with the Hyperstar 4 on a C11 again with an ASI 2600 MC Pro CMOS camera.
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
Here is a zoom-in on the M31 image with a little more processing added.
Managed to get out imaging with the 200mm lenses until 1 a.m. even with an intrusive Moon. Decided I would go for M31 to get the whole thing in the frame. Managed 4-hours of 20-minute subs in the end and … Continue reading
Last night only got 16 x 15-minute subs due to a massive Iridium flare, something that was as bright as the ISS, and Auriga dipping below the roof at the end of the session. So as this one has used … Continue reading
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
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
A clear, Moonless night last night and I managed to grab 5 hours worth of data (15-minute sub-exposures) on the IC410 region using the 200mm lenses and ASI 2600MC-Pro CMOS cameras. I lost the last hour’s worth of data when … Continue reading
