A complete reprocess of the data incorporating Noel Carboni’s AstroFlat plugin. 51 x 20-minute subs using the 3 x Sky 90s and M26C OSC CCDs on the MiniWASP array at the New Forest Observatory.
This is last night’s data taken between 11 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. on the Sky 90 array. 18 x 10-minute subs, and a star has been labelled for reference. One bright asteroid in the FOV only clear in the averaged … Continue reading
Clear until 9:00 p.m. last night with a very intrusive Moon. Saw that Ceres was well-placed in Cancer so put the Sky 90 array on the region. Ended up with 18 x 15-minute subs. Can even see Ceres in the … Continue reading
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.
From last night, lovely blue Gomeisa or Beta Canis Majoris. 36 x 10-minute subs on the Sky 90 array – and yes the averaged data shows a very nice asteroid near the centre of the image. Doesn’t look like we … Continue reading
Had my eye on a big band of rain and cloud running right down the East coast last night – by some miracle it just kept clear of Hampshire. So yet ANOTHER clear and Moonless night for imaging. Decided to … Continue reading
Managed to get some imaging in 2 nights ago (Jan 18th 2018) and got 30 x 10-minute subs on 8 Flora, middle of run at 21:32. You can see to the right and a little bit down from Flora there … Continue reading
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 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
One way of taking a high resolution zoom-in zoom-out of a deep-space image is to take the region concerned at 2 different focal lengths, or to take a single frame and then a mosaic of frames of the region. This … Continue reading
