Another 6-minute pass of the ISS last night 23/07/2018 and a quick shot of the Summer sky with Mars low down in the south.

Multi-Imager Systems – Development of the MiniWASP Parallel Imaging Telescope Array at the New Forest Observatories
I added some extra data to the top (north) of this one and reprocessed the lot again. Canon 200mm prime lenses with the Trius M26C OSC CCDs – a horizontal 2-frame mosaic with each frame in portrait mode.
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.
Only been able to recently process this one properly thanks to Noel Carboni’s new AstroFlat plugin. This is a 2-framer using the 200mm lenses and Trius M26C OSC CCDs with each frame a total of 12-hours integration time using 20-minute … Continue reading
