Lovejoy from tonight time lapse

Recommended Posts

setup was thrown together for quickness
used the EQ5 and the 80 on a bare setup with no guide scope
frozen ground covered with snow so plonked the mount down as good as I could figure
as I've been out once in over two months, dropped the scope on and hooked up the laptop
bit of adjustment to get me on a target (m44) then hop over to Lovejoy

tried different settings from 20s - 60s some still with far from dark sky (just after 6PM)

stacked 60 frames at 20 - 30 seconds with no calibration frames and got this

still have a load of other data to sort that should fill in the gaps and even give me a longer track

but for a ad hoc setup I'm more than happy
