Gamma Cass

I put the 200mm lenses (and Optolong L-enhance filters with the 2600MC Pro CMOS cameras) onto the Gamma Cassiopei nebula last night. Because of gremlins I only managed to get 10 x 20-minute subs when I should have had 42 … Continue reading

MiniWASP Statrep

For some totally unknown reason I don’t think I’ve published the latest (stable?) incarnation of the MiniWASP array. So here it is! The lower section of the MiniWASP (the black Aluminium box housing) contains 3 x Sky90s and top right … Continue reading

Only 2 x 20-minute subs with the 200mm lenses – but it shows the way to proceed with this one. Obviously a 20-minute sub is way too long for M42, but just fine for the Horsehead region. So a fair … Continue reading
