Shelster1973 Posted December 1, 2016 Share Posted December 1, 2016 Well.....where do I start. Having decided to focus on one target only for the winter time, decided on the great looking Bubble Nebula. Managed to get setup the other night (Tuesday) and thought I was in for a good 6 hours of data gathering. 1st run off and running on gathering some Ha as a basis. Checked after 1st hour and focus had shifted off....oh joy. So reset focus as best I could and went again. Checked after another hour and it appears I have fallen fowl of the bubble being of a stupid high ascension and it caused my tube to foul on pier.......ended up with lots of ruiined subs and after checking it appears to have thrown the mount out of PA. All I managed to salvage was 3 x 900s subs. Have very quickly thrown these through PI. No cal data, just subs. Have done some DBE, Noise reduction, stretching and curves on it. As you can see, focus is still off and need to work on my collimation (still). I did some playing with spacing between my CCD and coma corrector, but think I may have to do some more tweaking. Plan is to bring scope inside house and do adjustments on very distant target in daylight so that I can see how much I need to adjust. Anyway, here is a JPG version of what I managed to get. Guess I need to find me a new target now 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
