Elephant, Iris and NGC 7160...honestly!

2 posts in this topic

This is from a few nights ago, my first go imaging in the UK for some months. 

For some reason (probably naff skies!), I didnt pick up much Ha with my modded 100D. I had intended to try another night with a UHC filter added but it looks like the clear skies have dissapeared until further notice.

I took 21 X 5min, iso 400, F4.5 on 50mm 1.8 lens, DSS and PS. Tracked on EQ5Pro.

The first is from image is from the best 7 subs and the second is from the best 13 subs. You can just about make out the nebulosity around the Elephant, to the right and below the garnet star in the bottom mid to right region. Iris is top right but at this focal length it really is tiny and difficult to locate. NGC 7160 is in the star cluster mid image. I hope to try again and pick up some more of the red stuff.
