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
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.
From last night, lovely blue Gomeisa or Beta Canis Majoris. 36 x 10-minute subs on the Sky 90 array – and yes the averaged data shows a very nice asteroid near the centre of the image. Doesn’t look like we … Continue reading
Had my eye on a big band of rain and cloud running right down the East coast last night – by some miracle it just kept clear of Hampshire. So yet ANOTHER clear and Moonless night for imaging. Decided to … Continue reading
