After the CTB1 experiment – M42 was well-placed in the South and I managed to get 10 x 3-minute subs before the cloud rolled in from the West. This is pushing me to get 100 x 3-minute subs just to … Continue reading
This is a composite image incorporating very recent Hyperstar 4 data with very old Sky90 data.
Yet another boring grey day with absolutely no chance of imaging. So to keep my hand in with the image processing I decided to have a go at the California nebula region using DSS2 data. I tell you how to … Continue reading

Every sub of the Pelican Nebula from every imaging system all combined together to give this result.
Here’s a reminder that I used to take deep-sky images at the New Forest Observatory. This is a single-framer of the Sadr region in Cygnus taken with the 2 x Canon 200mm prime lenses and the 2 x Trius M26C … Continue reading
