Tulip Neb in HA

Recommended Posts

Graham

Decided on another new target tonight.

The Tulip Neb is tucked away in the Milky way in Cygnus.

 

Well it turned out to be one of those nights.

If it could go wrong it did :wallbash:

First slew round to Cygnus a cable got caught up and pulled the filter wheel plug out of the USB hub, did not notice anything was wrong until the first subs rolled in. :(

Whilst trying to sort that I managed to crash the computer so had to start over again.

All in all it cost me the best part of 2 hours.

Then to top it off after the ninth sub landed the clouds rolled back in and that was the end of that. ( So much for the clear night that was forecast )

 

Still never mind what I did manage to get stacked up quite nicely.

 

GT 81 plus reducer.

Atik 414 EX

9 subs at 600 seconds

Captured and stacked in Maxim DL

Slightest of polishes in PS 6

You at least got something for your effort Graham, Images should be rated on how many cuss words they took rather than exposure time, it might reflect the struggle better. :D

I have these types of session, too. I have been known to take hundreds of out-of-focus frames.
