Sorry but its another SN shot.

After last nights foul up on this I decided to do it again despite the terrible seeing conditions.


Last night under perfect clear skies I managed to get a shade under 6 hours of subs on this only to discover when I tried to stack them that I had left the HA filter in the image train so the entire nights efforts were only good for the scrap bin.


Tonight the seeing was rubbish with persistent high cloud and thicker clouds rolling past in ever increasing numbers.


I managed to get only 15 useable subs.



Atik 314 L


15 Subs at 300 seconds

5 Darks

11 Flats


Stacked in Maxim

Polished up in PS 6.


Still on the up side I have finally managed to get a pic of the SN. :)

Nicely framed. And as you say it's a picture of the two and the SN which is rewarding.

Well done. Been a bit windy and cloudy again in Nottingham.
