Swans imaging a Swan

Recommended Posts

This is the first processed image from the data I gathered on our 3 nights national astro party The site is 1730m above sea level and gives much better seeing than my usual dark site (850m ASL).

I'm a big fan of William Optics :) (the swan is their logo) and own two of their scopes - ZS 110 triplet and ZS 66SD. Both are in the game for this image of M17 - The Swan nebula

All details are in AstroBin but let write them here in short:

- WO ZS 110 + WO FRIII 0.8x, Modified 550D, EM-200, WO ZS 66SD as guide.

- 19x7min = 2h 13min, ISO 1600, no calibration - only dithering

- APT, PHD, DSS, PS CS3

Nice one Ivo, the nebula has an interesting mottled effect, almost marble-like!

I just received a letter that this image was published in the October 2012 issue of Astronomy Now :D

      Having upgraded from canon 1000D to Nikon D5300  how do users of the 5300 find it for Astro I will be using with APT , and how do you take flats as I can’t use Av mode as there is nothing in tools menu to choose no lens ,  do you use in manual mode  and look at histogram ? .

      This evening/morning I am having some problems getting my unmodified canon 600d to live view via apt. One hell of a palaver trying to get focused. Has any one suffered similar problems? Was working fine yesterday, tonight a bit of a disaster all round. I am running the feed for the guide camera down the same USB cable via a non powered hub, the camera works fine during the data gathering phase but no dam preview. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
