Making most of a difficult situation has become the theme of 2020. Doing live stacking has become 2nd nature and making it a communal experience has become a long distance conversation with people i would normally hang out on a regular day. Sometimes the conversation would go for hours, so I hope I can share the experience here with you all. I saved the final stacks.

 

Gear

Celestron C9.25

Celestron 6.3 reducer

Celestron off-axis guider

2 ASI224MC

Atlas Pro

 

Sharpcap for capture and stack

 

the 5 minute test was M87 showed the jets clearly relativly quickly and easily. May look at doing a longer version soon.

Things got serious with Messier 104. 115frames 1840s and it seemed to be fairly popular.

A nice set of images captured but what a strange title you gave.
