NGC 7000 First go


Recommended Posts

This is an attempt at NGC7000 from last night using quite a bit of new kit and some slightly hazy "seeing" - well, that's my excuse! The result is from 1h 24m of 2min subs (not dark enough for longer) using my unmodified Canon 1000D and SW ED80 PRO with a SW LP filter (new), guided with a QHY5 through a 50mm finder (all new), all on an HEQ5 / EQMOD setup.

I've always wanted to get this target since returning to astronomy after a 35 year break! So I'm quite pleased to have got anything at all. Its quite noisy and could do with much more time but there was only about an hour and a half of "darkness" last night! Plus I was interested to see just what the unmodded camera could do on such a "red" subject.

(There seems to be some sort of bird trying to get in on the act on the right hand side?)
