It was a good night and i choose this Snowball nebula (NGC 7662) which i think it also has to be with this winter season.
A beautiful planetary nebula that i like to observe and with the camera we can see even more detail and color.
The sharpcap action is just the basic but you can see the eq platform action which was good even with a 488x488 frame. Also how to find the object in Skysafari Pro 6.
I would like to enhance the "finder adjustment trick" i use to find the object with the camera, which has a very small sensor and a 2x barlow attached making hard to frame the object (however visually with an eyepiece is easy to find).
Hope you enjoy:
