Full moon IC1848 in Ha... thanks to Astrodon

Recommended Posts

I guess I would be totally out of imaging at the moment if I didn´t have my 3 nm Astrodon Ha-filter. First clear nights in over 2 months and of course that darn evil orb is up there, bright as ever! ?

Managed to get a total of 76*5 minutes and I guess this is about as good as I can get it considering the full moon.

Really can´t wait to get my hands on some O3 and S2 data for this one now! Oh, if only I could afford Astrodons for those as well...
The field of view of my Sigma 500mm lens really fits this target!

Thanks for watching, hope you like it ?

Gear used:

ZWO ASI1600MM-Cool @-20C
Astrodon 3nm Ha filter
Sigma 500/4,5 EX DG HSM tele lens
ZWO EF lens adapter
ZWO EFW-8 filter wheel
Orion Magnificent Mini Autoguider
Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro Synscan

Yep, beautiful image. Those 3 nm Astrodons are wonderful, I have a full set in 1.25" mounted, can't afford a bigger size.

Good work Martin - you have preserved contrast and depth.

I guess patience for the rest of the data . . . ?.
