A few more targets

So after my last image I posted, NGC7000, I think I said I'd be trying a mosaic of that area. Well I did. And it turned out alright!! I learned a few things about making a mosaic and then tried again, this time on the Veil Nebula. That was captured last night and when it had gone below the horizon I decided not to waste the clear skies so I had a go at NGC7380 - The Wizard Nebula.


The Wizard is a bit small for my set up but it's nice to see a wider angle I think :)


Anyway, images are all below. Capture details are essentially the same as usual.


Mount: Avalon Linear Fast Reverse

Scope: WO Star 71 Astrograph

Cameras: QSI583wsg, Lodestar X2 guiding.

Ha Filter: Astrodon 3nm

Software: SGPro, PHD2 and Pixinsight.


Exposures are:


North American Neb 12 x 600s per pane. Total time 8 hours

Veil 10 x 900s per pane. Total time 5 hours

Wizard 12 x 1200s. Total time 4 hours.


Thanks for looking.

Haha Daz, POTM indeed but which one!? :) to be honest, I'd really like to add some OIII and possibly SII to the Veil Neb. I think once I've done that, and added a bit more time to it I could put that forward for POTM. Then again I have a lovely Rosette begging for OIII and SII data...so many choices, so little clear skies :)
