Back in the saddle!
« on: October 08, 2016, 04:39:31 PM »
Hey guys,

After a long hiatus, I've managed to upgrade the astro imaging kit & get it all working. This is a single 300s guided sub of M27 taken from Whiteadder on Wed 5th October. The camera was cooled to -5 degrees celsius & there were no calibration frames taken either.

Thanks for looking,

Jeff

Nice one Jeff, looks good to me. Was well placed for a wee look at it myself last weekend when I was out.
