Hi, this is my first time using my new Esprit 100ED, my first time processing using Pixinsight, and it's my first image using a Mono + filters.
I loved them, can't wait to try on more targets.
here's the result:
SkyWatcher Esprit 100ED
SkyWatcher EvoGuide 50ED Guidescope
Imaging cam ZWO ASI1600MM Cool Pro
ZWO LRGB+NB 36mm filters
Guiding cam ZWO ASI290MM Mini
Seeing was avarage
Location was in a Green Zone
Another short night of galaxy hunting with the Esprit 150 and ASI071(OSC). Managed to grab 30 x 10 min and 30 x 90 s, the latter to save the galaxy cores and large stars. I think it shows that a large refractor is an accomplished galaxy hunter even if I only got about 6 hours of data. The ASI 071 set at gain 200, offset 30, -15°C. Stacked in PI and processed mainly in PS.
I also include a rotated crop that makes NGC5033 looks quite different. Interesting how the orientation of an image transforms the appearance of galaxies.
Finally I include an annotated version made in PI. There is 38 galaxies in there, if I counted them right. Actually I can see quite a few faint fuzzies / galaxies in the image that are apparently not in the PGC catalogue and were not annotated.
So, I come back with a nice galaxy that we don't see often in the astronomy forums. This week-end, I was ready to do some shots on nebula and I installed already the reducer but when I was ready, It was too late to have a shots on my target so I decided to change and to do some shots on this galaxy that is interesting target concerning the polar ring. I was lasy to remove my reducer and to install again the flattener so I was afraid to get small target view but it is ok.
Concerning the exposure time, I have done 15 x 600s + 18 x 300s in Luminance (without guiding) :
I hope you will like it.
