Last friday as also posted NGC891, here is a 2 pane mosaic of
the quintet of Stephan together with NGC7331.
This is a very interesting area with many galaxies hidden in
I managed to get 2 panes of 30 x 180 seconds each, managed
by NINA/PHD2/CDC and PS2.
All in all I had a meridian flip ( automatic ), dithering and every
20th frame automatic focussing enabled.
Setup was the RC8 at native focal length ( aprox. 1619 mm ) and
the ASI1600MCC with a UVIR filter, set at -15ºC, gain 139 and offset 10.
All imaged from my favorite dark site ( bortle 3 skies ) some 85 km driving.
I tried to process without pushing too much but hope not to have
overdone it. ( Still without noise reduction ).
I'm a happy camper with the RC8, with NINA and with this image.
What do you guys think??
Thanks for stopping by,
