First attempt at M27 (Dumbell)

Recommended Posts

Inspired by Craigs post yesterday http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/251958-m27-dumbbel-060915/ I decided to point my scope in that direction and see what I could get. Wasn't expecting a lot (some might say I didn't get a lot) but I was pleasantly surprised by the result.

Cannot decide on which stack is the best/worst so posted all three.

All taken on ED80 with Canon 600D - 30 sec exposure

In total 70 frames at ISO1600 and 50 @ ISO3200

This first widefield and crop is just the 70 x ISO1600

The second is a stack a of all @ISO1600 + ISO3200

The third is the same stack as the second but processed slightly different.

Nice images Dave. Tried to see this last night, but although the skies looked clear the seeing was poor.
