And here’s what can be done with my data when Noel Carboni (Florida, U.S.A.) gets his hands on it.

Sure hasn’t lost his touch!!

I composited last night’s deeeep M45 data with some older shallower data with good colour and ended up with this result:

Yet another beautiful clear Moonless night last night – and best positioned for some deeeeep imaging was M45, the Pleiades.

Managed to grab 18 x 40-minute (yes that IS 40-minute!!) subs and very quickly processed (leaving in the plane trails) just to see what I caught.

This shows more of the faint stuff in the region than I have managed to grab before with this kit.

Hind’s Variable nebula, Struve’s Lost nebula, Burnham’s nebula, NGC1555 – they’re all the same thing and it is the orange thing in the centre of this image.

A beautiful clear night last night allowed me to grab 41 x 20-minutes to go with the 24 x 20-minute subs taken in 2014.

And here is a 2-frame mosaic combining the IC2087 and SAO76573 frames taken with the Canon 200mm prime lenses and M26C OSC CCDs.

Taken a couple of nights back, this is 10-hour’s worth of 20-minute subs centred on SAO67573 one frame to the right of IC2087 also taken with the Canon 200mm lenses and M26C OSC CCDs.  

At the top/centre there is a very interesting nebula Vdb 27.  The whole region of course is full of dust and dark nebulosity all part of the Taurus giant molecular cloud.
