NGC281 - The Pac-Man by Chris Kennedy, on Flickr

35kph gusts of wind, and REALLY bad guiding due to a lack of drift align and the star being "blown away", but managed to get a little something out of 30x360s light frames, also a new target for me, one I want to come back to under better conditions and with other wavelengths of light to make a full colour image.

      These are my last images of 2019 taken with my ED72 and 183mm pro to be replaced by a 533pro
      These targets are not easy due to location trees etc except M1 , there was a bright moon as well so are all lucky shots
      but at last i have taken them warts and all . My guiding was all off as well
      Anyway a merry Christmas to you all and a Happy new year

      So I picked up a classic... a 1970's - 80's edmund optics f6 150mm newtonian...

      ... like this one but mine has a different mount. It was cheap. Very good condition. The focuser is pants. The mechanics of the secondary holder is (IMHO) brilliant and apparently the primary is 1/10th wave.
      But its f6 and I trhink I'd rather swap it out for a faster synta f5 mirror. .  The thing is its a one shot job bc to make the f5 mirror work I will have to saw off a good few cm from the barrel of the scope.
      So the question is: Is a high quality f6 mirror better than a faster synta f5 mirror for wide deep space astrophotograhy?
       
      All comments gratefully received. 😉

      My first image of M76 A bit rushed as clear nights are a rarity now
      30x120s Bin 2 Luminance ,SW 102 , ZWO 183MM Pro , OVL field flattener ,guided , processed in Gimp
      Took some Ha as well but poor results for some reason
      Seems an Oiii filter may have brought out some more detail
       
      i know its not great but just chuffed to have imaged it
