4 days in a row!


Recommended Posts

Usually autumns are very cloudy time here in Finland. This week I had 4 days of moonless and clear nights in a row. Here is all the images I took during these nights. 5th night was also clear but I spent it visiting other observatory near by.

Here is bit of a "kid in the candystore" effect taking place. :) Longest exposure is on IC410, 3.5 hours. Rest are between 1 hour and 3 hours. NGC1499 is two panel mosaic.

1. B142
2. Bubble nebula
3. IC405
4. IC410
5. M33 HaLRGB
6. NGC1499
7. NGC6960
8. Iris nebula

Great set of images. We also had a gap between clouds for several nights this week. But seeing was poor. Even though stars were visible, I lost many frames due to thin high clouds.

You managed a lot better.

Were these images taken with your Boren-Simon? That seems a great scope.

Thanks for sharing

The combination of a fast scope (f/2.8) and sensitive camera (asi 1600) is exactly what I was hibting at in a topic I posted several weeks ago. @VilleM can you share more details about your images?

Thank you everyone. :)
Yes these are all taken with ASI1600MM-C and 6" f/2.8 Boren-Simon. I used 180s subs and unitygain for all of these. Cooler was set to -15°C.
