Another oldie that benefits greatly from a bit of star reduction.
This is an image of the Triangulum Galaxy – Messier 33 – and it has been a little while in the making. This image is a composite of data taken with the Sky90 refractor and M26C OSC CCD, the Hyperstar … Continue reading
I just reprocessed some very old data. This is the bright star Caph in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is a 4-frame mosaic using the Hyperstar III and 90-second subs. Each frame is 44 subs at 90-seconds per sub.
This is a composite image of the Leo Trio using old HS3 data and very recent HS4 data. Still not showing the tidal tail so plenty more work needs to be done on this one.
I have very deep data of M13 and for the first time today I took a good look at the image to see if I could find “The Propeller”. And there it was!!
Last night I managed to get 10 x 10-minute subs using the Sky 90 array on the Cygni 32 region. Pretty amazed that I could see some nebulosity with so few (shallow) subs. Anyway – main point of the exercise … Continue reading
12 frames using the Hyperstar III and M25C camera with 2-hours of 10-minute subs per frame. Also a 200mm lens with M26C camera 2-framer using 15-minute subs and 5 hours per frame. So total integration time is 34 hours 🙂
I composited some 4-hours of Hyperstar III data and some 6-hours of Sky 90 data to give the following deep image of NGC281 – the Pac Man nebula.
I was looking through some old data yesterday and NGC1333 (Hyperstar III data) stood out as worth taking a second look at. So I reprocessed the data and came up with the (slight improvement) below 🙂
