Alcor & Mizar

From last night, 21 x 10-minute subs on the Sky 90 array.  Blazing half Moon causing trouble but as it was a beautiful clear (bitterly cold) night I imaged anyway.  Couldn’t be bothered to process out the plane trail.

Got just 9 x 20-minute subs on the NGC1999 region last night using the Sky 90 array. Forgot just how many geostationaries swarm through this region.

First “proper” image of the season – IC348 in Perseus

First “proper” image of this season. 21 x 30-minute subs on IC348 (in Perseus) on the 3 x Sky 90 array. It clearly needs even more exposure time to both reduce the noise and bring out more of the brown … Continue reading

The Running Man nebula – Zoom-In and Zoom-Out image
