Hello Astrogang!

 

For me who live high up north (I'm at 60 deg lat.) I get deep sky abstinences during summer when the skies are too brightcrazy.gif

But after prepping the observatory I decided to give it a go and I'm pleasantly surprised to see how much signal I could get!

 

So this is M13 with 93 mins integration time (31x180s) from 21th July between 00:00 to 01:30 (sunset at 22:00 and sunrise at 04:00). I was sleeping thought and Voyager was doing the supervision of the jobwink.gif

No darks, only flats, 75% crop of full frame (due to gradients). The scope is my 12" OOUK F4 carbon tube newt.

It'll be interesting to see how it progresses by adding new data from coming nights!

It was also nice to see that the collimation of my newt is still good from last season (last done in November 2018 and the scope and camera has been standing ready in the obsy since then, mostly looked after by bugs...!).

 

BR,

JP.
