First Galaxy Gluster

Recommended Posts

Last night I finally had a free and clear night for testing out my modified finder/guide scope. The target I picked was M88 since it has nearby friends with it and this would be my first galaxy cluster.

Target: M88

Telescope: Celestron SP-C6

Mount: Vixen Super Polaris/guided

Camera: Full Spectrum Canon 300D Rebel with CLS Filter

Guide scope/camera: LX SPC900NC, Celestron 9x50 finder scope

Subs: 11x5min lights at ISO 800, 11x6min Darks, 11 Flats

Didn't have time to do flats for this target so I used old flats from

another image.
