Flaming Star Nebula (C31, IC 405)
Hardware details: Camera: Canon 600D (astro modded). Telescope: SW Evostar 120 with Baader UHC-S filter. Mount: AZ-EQ6 guided using a ST80 synguider. Image details: Lights: 49 x 3min at ISO 800, Darks: 50 x 3min at ISO 800 (from dark library), Lights and darks separated by 15 sec intervals. Flats: 50 x 1/350s (taken from laptop monitor screen) at ISO 800, Bias: 50 x 1/4000 at ISO 800.
The weather was excellent - no clouds during the whole night. I was able to image until tiredness got the better of me.
Processing was done in DSS, I increased the saturation by 30% and manually aligned the colours. The Flaming Star Nebula is very well placed at the moment for me to image. It is also a good test of my camera's H alpha sensitivity so I may add to this stack later on.
