As I had another clear and cold night ( that is beneficial for the uncooled camera ) I tried
on IC410, the Tadpoles.
Due to full moon I really wanted to use the L-Extreme filter but that filter on this camera
somehow does not work as well as on my 1600MCC. ( still not known when it comes back
from repair ).
So in short, I used an UVIR filter with some fear because of the very strong moonlight.
Since I mounted the baffle tube extension on my RC8 this would be a nice trial to
see if the straylight problem would be less.
So here goes, IC410, the tadpoles closeup.
They do not stand out very well since this is OSC under full moon
Setup as usual RC8, CCDT67 and 224MC with UVIR filter.
269 frames of 40 seconds.
According to ASTAP the limiting magnitude on a single frame was 14.3 which
is quit astonishing under full moon with this uncooled camera and 40 second exposure.
