An extremely deep M45 image taken with the Sky 90s and M26C OSC CCDs. Over 25-hours total imaging time using 10, 20, and 30-minute sub-exposures. The image “cleaned-up” beautifully with Noel Carboni’s AstroFlat plugin.

Compass to point North and protractor to set latitude.

I have very deep data of M13 and for the first time today I took a good look at the image to see if I could find “The Propeller”.

And there it was!!

I took this data a few years back.  It is a 4-frame mosaic of the Double Cluster/Stock 2 region in Perseus taken with the Sky 90s/M26Cs.  Each frame is 2-hours of 3-minute subs and North is to the right.  It is only with the recent availability of Noel Carboni’s AstroFlat plugin that I have finally been able to put this one together.
