Witch's Broom with Quattro and 1000D

Carl M

Recommended Posts

Clear nights are coming thick and fast now!

34 x 300s  ISO 800 - 2hr 50mins total exposure

Dithered with APT and PHD2

No calibration frames

Full spectrum 1000D with Astronomik CLS-CCD clip filter

Quattro 8s on EQ6 guided with ST80 and ASI120MC


Would have like to have gotten some more of the fainter details to come out, but I think it might need some longer exposures. Can't seem to go much higher than 5mins without the background being over exposed.

Thanks for looking,

Very good, the combination of a F4 newt and a dslr works well.

It's starting to look much more promising now that collimation seems to be sorted. Next hurdle is post-processing, this time I at least managed to keep some star colour without sacrificing the colour in the main object too much. Slowly but surely making progress!
