Sorry Dan, you're right, I grabbed the 670mm sub before by accident - I've updated the post with a 1370mm sub. FITS shows 300 second subs. End of a long week at work.

5 mins is req because the scope is at f/13! So equivalent to 85sec at 670mm.

Wow, nice images! I especially like all of the mosaics and comparisons. I don't think that there's many others here like these.

Here is a shot of NGC 6826 from the NTech security camera I am experimenting with. You can just see the FLIRs. Taken through ES AR152 refractor under a full moon in Austin, TX. The camera ia capable of 1024X, however only 256X was needed. This is in night mode which is only in B/W.

The transparency is just terrible here in NC this time of year and the moon was full on Friday so I said what the heck. Sometimes things in our solar system are still pretty cool.

This is a single shot exposure of the moon. It is processed from a RAW file. However, on the small low resolution screen on the back of the camera it looked the same.

At these wider focal lengths(1600mm in 35mm terms) stacking is irrelevant.

ISO 160 1/320th of second F4.0

Here is the Blue Snowball in B/W taken with the Ntech Security camera. This was through my 180mm MAK-CASS
AGC was set to high with integration only at 128x 3DSNR was not on. This is a raw snapshot through a video capture device. The wind was not allowing for any recordings. I was sitting at the computer taking snapshots during calm periods. (there were not many)
