this weekend I'll be in a Bortle 4 location (SQM 21.53) in northern Italy (south tyrol).
I'll hopefully have 2 clear nights to (partially) dedicate to a target I still have to choose.
Here's some info:
- 60-90 minutes per night of light frames (so, hopefully, a total of 120-180 minutes of integration)
- Nikon d7500 (DX) stock
- Tamron 150-600 G2
- iOptron SkyGuider Pro
- no guiding, therefore < 350mm for best results
What would be the best target for my setup? I looked in Stellarium, and it seems that the following could be viable targets:
- NGC7000 (@ 150mm)
- IC1805 + IC1848 (@ 200mm)
- Cygnus Loop (@200mm)
My doubts are:
- is NGC7000 a good target for a stock DSLR? And would, in the worst case, 90 minutes be enough to get a decent result?
- IC1805 + IC1848 I guess those are a no go for a stock DSLR, even if I would manage to get a full 180 minutes integration, right?
- Cygnus Loop: again, for a stock DSLR pointing to such a faint object, 180 minutes would be not much, right?
Do you have any other target I could shoot (and get a decent result) with the specs above?
