This is 25 minutes (5x500sec subs) luminence with the iTelescope T18 318mm F8.0 Planewave CDK in Spain. 


Still a bit patchy, but a bit more Luminence and then RGB should smooth things out I hope.


This was my third attempt at getting on this scope. I started at 20:45 our time and got part way through and it cancelled the run due to a reservation had priority and I had missed. The reserve didn't turn up so the scope became free and some begger jumped in, grr :angry:. So I waited for them to finish and another reservation beat me. They didn't turn up so I then blagged the scope and did a 20 minute run, I added the previous nights 5 minutes.


Ive now run out of imaging  points (cos Ive been messing around a lot:lol:on various scopes) so will wait for my top up  next week before trying again. Besides, weather forecast for the  obs region is poor.

Was just wondering what the other objects were in there so did some searching



Not sure if the small edge on galaxy like object is PGC28848 or not, it seems a bit close to me for it to be that. Looks to detailed to be an artefact though

Nope don't think its PGC28848. This is Skymapro 11 with background image overlay and its on there but unidentified. I have found a couple more images on the web with it on so its not an artefact. Interesting.
