M97........almost but difficult with dslr


Recommended Posts

Morning all, still at it and my heads not seen a pillow for thirty hours, here's my attempt at M97 The Owl Nebula.

After culling my data i only have 50 mins which is not nearly enough, i think this target, with my gear, needs a hell of a lot more, not even sure an un-modded will cut the mustard tbh.

Here it is though.

Obviously getting to grips with your new setup there Ewan. Looks like you may be able to get some more data tonight.

I owe you one Freddie that's for sure, getting the hang of setting PHD up depending on where i am imaging & i think (fingers crossed) my PA routine is good, i posted this on a different thread Freddie but does it indicate good PA to you ?


The guiding goes a bit wacky sometimes but it may be vibration from me through my patio, i would imagine with my FL's it could be that sensative. I now set the remote release to start 20 secs after i go inside then leave it to run.

Quite a good night last night, 60 mins + on M101, 40 mins on M51 & the above added to, hopefully yes it will be clear & that will be a long time without any sleep but clear nights are few & far between i guess.
