Wow Brian, they are stunning!

They seem to have some form of interference in the Data stream, especially the last one.
Traffic? Cables crossing each other?

Otherwise great images

Ken:

Thanks for the compliment, I'm pretty pleased with them. M76 looks much darker on Cloudy Nights vs. my computer screen, it's lost a little detail in the outer nebulousity. Yes, I have a ground loop problem. I need to get a 12V power cord for the Mallincam and that will disappear. Or so I'm told.

Hi Ken all of your recent images with the APO refractor are stunning. The comparison between your Achro and Apo NGC 253 does not surprise me and you just cannot beat an Apo for very high contast and sharpness quality.

Clear skies,

Chris A

Morning all:

Had some pretty good skies last night. Given the nearly full moon, I wanted to try some Ha images (Lumicon Ha Night Sky filter); pretty pleased with the results. Thanks to all who joined the broadcast, and especially to Chris A. who took some time to help bring the most detail out of these images. Always learn something from him, and last night was no exception.

First up, M27. AGC 4, 120 second integration

Finally:

I took off the Ha filter and intalled the UHC. This integration was taken in CCD mode, 4 minutes

Hi all, It has been over a year since my last broadcast on NSN and was using a 130mm f5 newt. I ordered a 70mm Celestron travel scope and a .6x Focal reducer along with a UHC/LPR filter but never put it on the SLT mount to even try it out. That was last fall, lol.
Anyway I got it out last night and broadcasted for over 6hrs with the little 70 and here is a few shots.

1st off the moon (1/1000 70mm at F.35 SDC-435)

Very nice captures Rick. I like that you did the AGC comparison on M42 and posted the results.
