March 16, 2020: M81 + M82 with Schmidt-Newton

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I managed to grab 1h 35 minutes of data with the Meade 6" F/5 Schmidt-Newton on the GP-DX mount (first attempt at DSO imaging with this combo). I used my uncooled ASI183MC, and subs of just 60 seconds. I did make darks and flats, but I still had to crop off the worst of the amp glow (still visible on the right). Next on the purchase list: a cooled version. Still, the image scale is good for galaxies, I would say. I must get guiding to work. Forecasts for coming weekend are good, so hopefully I can get the guiding up and running by then.
