M57 Skymax 127 & ASI224MC

Recommended Posts

Cobbled together 100 mins worth of M57 from 2 nights combining 30 & 5 sec subs. Moon was almost full the 2nd night. 

Still having issues with my EQ5 mount hence the short exposures.

I'm amazed quite frankly, I know it's a bright DSO, but you managed this at f/13 right?

Thanks, yes well f11.8 to be precise. The asi224mc is very sensitive. Unfortunately I had to trash over 50% of the 30 sec exposures due to tracking errors. It's possibly backlash or something worse. I've already sent one EQ5 back to the vendor. Not terribly impressed by the quality of the SW EQ5 mounts!
