watch out the moon's about - last night !


Recommended Posts

If you can't beat it - shoot it!   Got a few DSOs in before moonrise [24hrs after full] here with Jupiter + sats nearby but not as near as this montage with 1ms [=1/1000s] exposures for each and 10ms for sats. 

Other targets including Comet Catalina in Cep [60s], Eskimos PN in Gem [10s] and moving west M35 + tiny NGC 2158 [20s] to its SW, M42 [again!] and feeble Horsehead - 20s just hinted at its ghostly form.  Will post some more tomorrow ;o)

Here's the remainder M42 [10s], Horsehead [20s L + 80s R] both under moonlight and OCs M35 [10s]  and nearby NGC 1027 both in Gem ;o)

Gear = Meade Classic equat 30cm  @ f/3.3 SCT+SX Lodestar-Cx2 - no filters.
