M65 old and new

Recommended Posts

A couple of nights ago, I imaged M65 at f/10, and the result was not too good, as the 'seeing' didn't favour imaging that close in. When I 'posted' the image I said that it would have been a more sensible option to have 'pulled back out' a bit, with a Focal Reducer.

Last night I heeded my own advice, and imaged M65 again, this time with the f/3.3 FR in 'line'

The original f/10 image and the new f/3.3 images are show below, for comparison.

BTW, the new image is correctly orientated, whereas for the original one, the camera was turned to 90° to fit the image into the frame.

New image: 12" LX200R + f/3.3 FR - SXVF-H9C 8x600 sec subs. combined and processed in AA4, and 'finished off' in P/Shop
