I know it’s not a 130 but close enough?

Pretty rapt with this given I had to centre it by eye, guiding was non functional and I only got an hour on it.
First time pillars capture 👍

Great work. Perhaps add some narrow band to it? Simon Todd recently imaged this, it's quite a small target. To small for my 130pds.

Thanks Shaun,

I will be having another go at this target but next time with my ZWO 1600mm camera, once I work out how to use it with my computer !

This image is cropped from the original. It was taken with a full frame 6D which made it quite small. A cropped camera would be better. The image apparent size would be the same for a 130pds as a 150pds, wouldn't it?

Cheers,

Andy

Hi, 

The 150 has a longer focal length, so a higher magnificatoon. With the ZWO it will be at a higher magnificatoon due to the smaller sensor, so you would probably need to guide! 

60 sec unguided is great anyway with that scope. 

Cheers, 

Shaun
