Hello,

 

Here is my latest attempt at the Tadpoles (IC410).  This is 23 hours of exposure through a 130mm triplet at 910mm focal length using the ubiquitous ASI1600 mono.  More details are at the link.  Thank you very much for taking a look.

 

-Tim

“Field radius: 0.327 degrees“

Incredible. That CEM is working well for you. I love the ethereal appearance of the nebulosity, perfectly captured and processed.

Nice capture Tim as usual!

 

That SV130T is a superbly sharp scope!

 

How many nights of imaging did it take to get 23 hours of clear skies?

Thanks, yep I love the CEM60.  Have owned two of them, regretted selling the first one.  They both performed excellently.

Thanks John - I had an amazing stretch of 5 clear nights in a row week before last where I was able to get about 23 hours each on two objects. I'd shoot the bubble nebula the first half of each night and then move to the Tadpoles during the 2nd half of the night once it got high enough to clear the trees and before the Bubble dipped too low.  5 nights in a row doesn't happen often around here as you know.

 

I'm all out of data now though, have to wait on some more clear skies now.
