Eastern Veil Nebula


Recommended Posts

Last year I was using the C11, 0.63 reducer and Moravian camera with varying results.


I've gone back to the Edge, as it produces better images. I've gone back to the QHY8L because you get images in less time -  I struggle with having enough hours due to clouds etc., so using filters severely reduces my imaging time. Also I've bought an Edge 0.7 reducer.


Also, with the larger field size, tracking is better.


I'll stick with this for the moment and see how I get on. I was really impressed with how little processing this image took once it was stacked. It seems to me that more images with less time are better than fewer images at a longer exposure. Certainly 10 minutes exposures allow a large number this time of year. I just leave the scope out all night and hope for no rain.......


Many thanks all for the feedback.
