    • M45 - The Pleiades
      I bagged a bonus 4hrs last night to top up my data on M45 - The Pleiades. It's coming along nicely. Starting to see the surrounding dust. 7.5hrs total up to now. Pure RGB with my Redcat \ Canon 450d combo.

    • The Witches Broom in Narrowband
      Hi,
       Had major issue with the laptop dying last week. Thankfully a replacement motherboard sorted it, or I would have been stuffed for EMS5!.
       
       So, having played with SGPro at Kelling for the first time, including autofocus on filter changes, I was keen to try it out at home. This is a single evenings images. Only 8x10 minute exposures on each of the Sii, Ha, and Oiii filters, so noise could be a bit better. Still, very pleased to have got this in one evening..

      This was taken last night through constant high cloud.
      Considering the conditions I am amazed it turned out like it did.

      I shot this just before my trip to Tenerife so I'm just catching up with my processing. Redcat 51 plus Canon 5D and Altair Astro Quadband filter did the trick for this wide field view of these 2 tagets. just over 4 hrs of data processed in Pixinsight and PSCC. Cheers ??
