During hurricane prep last night I noticed the first relatively clear sky in weeks....as luck would have it. So I decided to take advantage of it and set up for a quick grab. As you can see in the radar/sat image (blue dot) at my location we were already starting to get some spin off from Isaias. But I couldn't resist. We haven't had too many clear nights.

 

1400HD

7300 FL

ASI290MM, 1.6x Barlow

Three sets each of R,G,B, 10k-12k frames @ 70-90s each, each channel.

Sharpened, derotated and combined, minimally processed in PS

 

I took another set at native FL but the upper winds were starting to get messy. By the time I moved over to Saturn the clouds were streaming in.

 

Tonight its Quarantini's, a cigar, and watch the blow.

Right? I think this one is more of a media event than a storm event locally....but good to be prepared. Waiting to see what’s on the back side of it, usually we get a few good nights after the storm passes. Nice post! I was kicking myself for going out the same night you did. Didn’t think I would have another shot before the weather.

 

Thanks all for the comments!

my hurricane prep is making sure i have enough gas to go up the block to get to cucumberland farms and pick up a chicken burrito. I think it would take a truly devestating cat 5 hovering in one spot locally for days to shut everything down. asif=de from wind it may even clear up buy 10 or 11 tonight. i think theres a grs transit some time.

 

 I looked at your image again. I have both 224mc and 290 and realized with the 2x barlow and acdc corrector the 290 with its smaller pixel size is over sampling. The 224 seems to over and ove do a much better job and despite having a crack on my sensor i still use it over the 290 i have to figure how to attach the Barlow lens directly to the adc corrector to shorten the fl a bit

yep. mine is oversampled with the 1.6x. Below is the second shot from the same night when conditions were going downhill. This one at FL 4200ish, no barlow.
