For reasons that we will all know, 2020 was a bit of a write-off when it came to keeping New Forest Observatory stuff up to date. I have just entered the M87 data I took last night and see that … Continue reading
Well I wasn’t expecting to get out imaging last night, but it was clear and the Moon was not directly intrusive so I fired up the Hyperstar III on the C11 with the Starlight Xpress 814C OSC CCS and Lodestar … Continue reading
Last night’s effort with the Hyperstar. Only 13 x 5-minute subs so still pretty noisy unfortunately. This is the NGC3631 region with a huge pile of faint fuzzies at the top (North).
Only 13 x 5-minute subs on the Hyperstar III on the C11 with the Trius 814C OSC CCD, so quite noisy. Arp214 and friends in Ursa Major.
Managed to get out last night with a clear, Moonless night, but lots of water vapour. Grabbed 20 x 5-minute subs with the Hyperstar III on a C11 with the Trius 814C OSC CCD. Also added a similar amount of … Continue reading
Getting a bit faint now, supernova SN 2020 fqv in the Siamese Twins (a galaxy pair in Virgo), imaged last night using the HyperstarIII on the C11 using the Trius 814C OSC CCD and 19 x 300-second subs. At least … Continue reading
Last night’s effort. 20 x 10-minute subs using the Hyperstar III on a C11 with a Trius 814C and Lodestar guider. Galaxy M101. Bit disappointed as I thought it might turn out a lot deeper than this. Now realising my … Continue reading
The Hyperstar III/Trius 814C combination was used to grab this central view of M31. The red circle shows the size of the full Moon for comparison.
Another clear night last night, so I moved a bit downwards in the Virgo cluster to get the M87 region. No sign of the jet as far as I can see with 14 x 5-minute subs.
Beautiful clear night last night, and a non-intrusive Moon for imaging in the Leo region. 12 x 5-minutes subs on the M100 region and the speed of the Hyperstar really shows through. Need more data on this for a quality … Continue reading
