Hi all,

 

Since the waiting on my camera to get back from repair is getting very long I just had to do

something.

Started to recollimate my RC8 from scratch taking my time ( took me like 2 hours ) and

try to center things up as good as I could.

The only camera left to do something with is my ASI224MC, not the best for DSO but hey,

it's better to do something then just stay indoors.

So, I setup everything on my balcony and had 2 targets to test on.

First one is an exoplanet transit HAT-P-62B for which I have to process everything to see if

it's possible with an uncooled camera.

Second target was Arp-1, a face-on galaxy with some small galaxies that fit in the tiny field.

Only 130 x 40 seconds.

 

Here you see the result in ASTAP of the collimation and after that the image of Arp-1.

There was some strange smudge of light I couldn't caibrate out but anyways.
