NGC 7822 from last night ... or not...as the case may be...

Recommended Posts

My second top tip picked up from last night... Don't do star alignment by moving the camera. I went to Capella, then moved the camera on the ball joint to centre it rather than move the mount. The targets I aimed at nearby were all dead centre when I did a flip to go to NGC 7822, It missed completely. Its obvious really, but not to me! Centre by moving the mount, not the camera :iamwithstupid:

So here is an image of a few stars and things! There is Gamma Cas and lots of other nice stars and patches. I think I may have just caught the edge of NGC 7822 at the bottom! Not a bad image anyway... and a good learning experience for me.

15 X 5min, 70mm (70-200mm zoom), iso 1600, 1200D, F5.6, DSS and photoshop and good old DBE (Pixinsight LE) to get rid of the gradient.
