C49 Rosette Surprise Edition. 05/04/13


Recommended Posts

A stack of just 12 120 sec subs @ 800 ISO.


350D Modded on ED80 mounted on EQ5 Unguided.


Chucked into DSS, Abused in PS5.


It was just a bit of a mess about just to see how much detail 120secs could pull from it, wasn't expecting what I got from such little data.

Its not bad to much blur action going on and looks a little out of focus to me and theres a lot a noise but still a not bad image



Blurred slightly to try and get rid of noise and this wasn't a serious attempt, focus according to FVHM or whatever it is says it is as close to focus as it's ever liely to get with the standard focuser.

Nice one Mike, awesome as usual.

Is this the object we were talking about when you had to re-align due to you knocking the mount?


That would be the one :facepalm: just having a bit of a mess about gathering research for when I decide to image it one day :D


@Kim Thanks, you know how it is, plonk it down rough polar align, knock it out later, knock it back somewhere near and fire a few 120 secs off unguided..... :lol: I can't wait till the day I can get to do guiding, I think a whole new universe will open it's self up to me.
