Title: M27 started
Post by: Longjohn54 on August 27, 2019, 04:02:59 PM
With last night being clear I've started imaging again.   This is a work in progress of M27.
15 x 120 seconds of red and green.   7 x 120 seconds of blue before it went out of sight behind a tree.
No calibration at all (you can tell!), just stacked and stretched to see what I've got so far.   Lots more subs needed!

Oooh nice start to the season John,whats caused the red line ? Is it an effect of stacking ?
Must have been nice shooting that from your home observatory.

Love it John, as Kathleen said, a great start to the season. Let's hope it is one of many.

The red line was a bright satellite in one of the red subs.   There are three more very faint ones lurking in there too.  Two green and one blue.   They'll all come out with processing when I'll do it properly.
It felt good to open the obsy again.   Apart from a day spent updating Windows and cleaning everything it's been closed since February.  Bring on the clear nights.  :)
