Last night I got 5 hours of data on Coddington’s nebula and Carbon star SAO 51274 (bottom left hand corner). I added this to around 12 hours of data taken over 2 nights some time ago.
I took 6 hours of 40-minute subs with the Sky 90 array on 9th December 2018 and added this to 9 hours of 40-minute subs taken last year to get this result.
9 hours of data using 20-minute subs (so 3 hours of actual imaging time) using the Sky90 array on 1st November 2018. 6:52 p.m. start and no Moonrise until midnight.

A Sky90 array image of open cluster NGC7209 in Lacerta. 18 x 10-minute subs taken on 1st September 2018.
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.
