This coming Saturday I plan to travel to a local observatory for deep sky imaging. I plan to collect 5-7 hours of integration hopefully.
What Im wondering is, given that the sky is so dark, would it be worth it to just focus on one target for the entirety of my integration, or should I have several 2-3 hour targets? I rarely get to travel out to dark skies, and I suspect that the difference between 3 hours and 6 hours at a dark sky isn't THAT great. Given that dark sky integration is so rare, would it be more rewarding to shoot several targets in a night? I hope someone can chime in on this.
