Hi everyone!

 

The skies finally cleared (with no moon) so i could get some more subs of M81.

 

I'm at a total of 3hours 47mins. I'm not quite sure if i should aim for around 8/10 hours of subs?

 

Anyhow C&C very welcome!

How do you decide what targets to spend so much time on?

 

Awesome results.

 


The above really is a serious question.   I am overwhelmed when I look through the catalog of available targets.

Thanks!

 

Hmmm... I guess it's my scope placement. At this time of year i can mosty see galaxies and one of my projects right now i getting three relatively large galaxies together in one wall frame.

 

I usually face the eastern sky with some of the north and south as well, but mainly east.

 

And - when i choose a target, it has to be worth it, e.g. the motive has to be interesting visually. I'm thinking a total of 8 hours, to bring down the noise even more, and maybe get even more detail in the galaxy itself smile.gif
