Starting my M42 for the season: HA Channel new
      #5609276 - 01/06/13 09:37 PM

I actually have not done this one in RGB since getting my new set up, well, now 2 years old! I have done a total NB version but really don't like the colors that you get in that mode, so the same night I did a quick Rosette, I also grabbed 3.5 hours of HA to start this project. I shot 10, 120 and 300 second subs to get as much detail as I could. Now I just need to get enough clear nights to grab the color!

I really like the Televue .8 Reducer with this scope and camera. Everything seemed to click on this evening with a total of 88 subs and did not discard a one of them.

Very nice start Warren. I keep meaning to do this again (I never really put much time on it ). Its going to be quite stunning once your clouds clear and you're able to add color to it. It is nice when everything gels, AP is a lot like golf, we all struggle and wonder why we do it and then you get in that one good "shot" and your hooked again.

Thanks Steve! Yeah, but the "Hook" is one of my problems in golf!!

Fantastic start on a classic, I hope to be able to catch it with my new set up.

Really impressive detail in this channel alone!
