M65 from last night 33x8s (stack was longer than required... looked pretty good after 15 subs)
Edit: Setup was Evolution C8@f4.2, ASI290 mono, SharpCap running on Compute Stick
Very nice! I want to be able to take pics like that with my 224, however, the weather up here in the northeast is down right atrocious!
On your compute stick, is that being used remotely? Are you connecting a Micro SD card or thumb drive for your storage?
I am waiting to buy Starsense for my Nexstar 8SE with my upcoming tax refund, so that will make my remote operation through Skysafari 5 and Skyportal wifi dongle that much more enjoyable. I cannot trust the Nexstar mount's ability to properly align and center the object all the time and even the Skysafari app does not completely center the object after a 3 star align. I use a combination of Skysafari to initiate the connect and align procedure and using the Nexstar HC for speed and direction for centering stars. I get the object of interest in the FOV, but not close enough for imaging remotely. I suppose I could use an F/5 reducer and during capture and display, just re-size the object for a larger appearance.
