Mak 127 M33 fail :)

It doesn't always go to plan... I started this one without really knowing where on the sensor it was because it was so faint, but it looks like I got it about right in terms of position. Sadly the little Mak then decided to start dewing up and the subs were getting more and more faint. It being 2:30am on a school night, I decided to call a halt to the proceedings. I think it might actually need a larger sensor or a shorter focal length anyhow. This is a resized image, but it's almost the full frame -- just the edges cropped off to lose the stacking artefacts.

No guidng yet. I'm toying with the idea of an OAG at the moment, though I may just turn up an adaptor for the 50mm guidescope I have to take my ASI120 as a guide camera as the field of view will probably be quite a bit larger.

Looks like you got the same amount of detail as what i got James,definately needs longer times on this one??

Same here last night,i set up under a clear sky but clouds started rolling in so packed up about midnight.

Longer exposures would really help, but I think just getting a decent number of exposures would be a good start. The forecast looks good again for tonight, so I shall give it another go if I can.

Just thought I'd chip in with some words of wisdom...

anyone following these 'imaging with a 127Mak' threads, I've had a go myself and had very mixed results ... I've had a decent ring nebula and M13 but massive fails on the dumbbell -_-

Its all down to meticulous polar alignment I'd say.

Hats off to anyone that gets a good image using the 127 Mak, they thoroughly deserve it as its really not that easy!
