Better result last night


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had a better session last night after the disaster the night before. The goto worked flawlessly putting the image on the chip every time, all the software worked perfectly, just click on object in Stellarium, hear the telescope slew and watch the image appear on the screen, then tease out the detail with LL. Great fun!

Tracked down four objects on my Caldwell list all using the RC6 at F9 as most objects were quite small. The Cats Eye Nebula and the Blinking Planetary were very bright requiring only one second exposures to show the detail (any more and the detail seemed to get burned out), and as Don suggested should be possible to view more detail with a barlow. All captures taken under a full moon. I didn't try the Ha filter with the 60mm scope, will try that next time. Results below:





Comments and advice always appreciated.
