400mm F3.5 + NOVA 120 images
      #6044045 - 08/24/13 06:33 PM

Hello all,

We have set up a remote telescope setup that is made of a

NOVA 120 directdrive mount from Sky Vision
OTN 400 from Skyvision
OPTEC 3"
ATIK 383L+
ATIK filter Wheel
ASTRONOMIX filter set

There is no guiding camera since this is a direct drive mount, and we are performing remotely exposure from 300s to 600s seeing dependent.



Scale is 0.8'' / pixel

Acquisition and processing software is PRISM V9, using automatic observations mode (I was sleeping while the images were recorded)
