Interesting subject indeed. Although I'm still trying to get my head around how the 130mm telescope managed to capture that faint a object?

What is giving you trouble regarding capturing such a faint object with a 130mm scope? The telescope that caught mag. +17.6 Haumea was a 100mm scope by the way. I threw out a Sky at Night amateur challenge to try and replicated the Hubble Deep Field back in the spring of 2015. Using my own kit from my own back garden the faintest confirmed object was mag. +22.3. Admittedly this was using a 250mm SCT but in comparison, Haumea is a searchlight :)

I might give it a go with my 130 apo if we ever get another clear night. Mind you with my LP it'll be a challenge.

Love learning about my relative back yard. Good show! Most of the solar system is invisible to us without a good bit of telly :happy11:
