NGC 7023 - The Iris Nebula

Recommended Posts

Finally after a month of not being able to image, the skies cleared enough tonight for me to perfect and document drift alignment of my mount using my CCD and MaximDL software and to actually get an image of some kind as a bonus. I really need a lot more subs but this is what I got from 27 subs of 150 seconds each with a Starlight Xpress SXVF-H9C CCD through my 10" Reflector, guided:-

What was a shame was that I was having so much 'fun' learning the black art of drift alignment that I didn't start imaging until 12:30 which was when I realised just how beautiful the sky was! Earlier in the evening, it got so dark and menacing we thought there was a storm on the way!

That is exquisite Steve, a real pearler if ever I saw one, and such great colour, it's like looking up through an Emerald sea towards the sun.

Bonny as owt lad.

That is one very nice image Steve :D

I've done my 'drift alignment' with the new scope, and am now into generating and refining a set of Periodic Correction data, with the aid of Pempro.
