News from Oldenburg: NGC 2438 and M43
Posted 19 January 2013 - 06:27 AM
After a lot of rain I finally had a chance to image another low altitude PN: NGC 2438 in M46. Seeing was not perfect, decent at best, so I was not able to work with 4700 mm focal length.
(C9.25; EQ6; DL658M; RGB 3x1000x2 sec)
While waiting for NGC 2438 to rise over the trees next to my observing site, I had a nice view on M43...

Thanks for your comment!
The focal length was 2350 mm. Actually, I wanted to use a teleconverter to reach a FL of 4700 mm, but the seeing at this low altitude was just too bad.
