Mainly due to the UK weather and the fact that I value my sleep, I find that I'm moving increasingly towards automated image capture. The Pacman nebula (NGC281) was my first automated image and represents various observations in Oct/Nov 2015 during mainly cloudy/moon lit nights. The automation software (ACP Expert) was instructed to wait for a clear sky, with a moon down and a target that was above my local horizon. Automated focusing was via FocusMax. Captured with a SW ED80 and a Trius SX26C. LIGHTS: 30 x 600s; DARKS: 40, FLATS: 40; BIAS: 50. Post processing in Photoshop CC 2015 and CCDstack2+.
