Afocal NGC 6543 - Cat's Eye Nebula 10/02/08

Recommended Posts

I had absolutely no intention of even observing this, let alone trying to image it but while I had the chance....Low down in the sky, well and truly in the murk, high magnification making it a complete hit or miss (I wager probably miss) affair with regard to focusing... Frankly, I'm amazed I even got this blue(ish) blur! I also had 30 odd shots of M34 that accidentally got erased off the memory card whilst being transferred onto the 'puter :D. Never mind, there's always next time...

So, the faithful Canon Powershot A610 connected to a 3.5mm Hyperion (Mag. x286!) with the Neodynium filter, Celestron C8N and EQ6 Pro.
