Firstlight 1000D 50mm F1.8 and CLS-CCD clip in (Fixed Tripod)

Recommended Posts

Clouds meant that I only managed 15x15s ISO 400 f1.8 on a fixed Tripod Canon 1000D with 50mm F1.8 EFII and Astronomik CLS-CCD Clip in and also rushed the focus... should have spent more time on it...

I think it needs higher ISO with the lens stopped down a few as that stops should help with the coma

Was hoping to get a chance to have a go at Orion with the Moded 350D and the CLS later :)

Hi Doc there is is you look carefully on the Hi-res - just me being way to fussy probably... the trailing is really noticeable an image of Tarus through M45 that I took... only got 3 frames on that one so havent posted it...

I reckon ISO1600 around f4-5.6 is possibly better and load more shorter subs...

Only wanted an hour or so to sweetspot the setup :)

Forgot I'd' been playing with the settings in DSS and added some Bias frames as well....

Heres the Astronomentery.net solution for the image... couple of nebs in there as well
