Yay, clear skies again!

Recommended Posts

Should last for a couple of hours, so gunning for the California Nebula for the first time. Hoping to get 3 hours of data at least. 

I wasn't expecting this amount of detail in a single 60 s sub

Lucky you Michael :thumbright:

Are you going to have a go for the supernova as well ?

Here we have yet another night of thick dark clouds with intermittent fine drizzle :clouds1::clouds2:

Clouds have just rushed in. I might see what happens after midnight, but I doubt it will be good

OK, so you move everything inside, and then it clears again, but more rain is forecast, so I have left it at just 30 minutes of data.

Quick stack with just background calbration and light gradients removed

with star colour calibration produces a more orange look:

Very noisy, of course, but a reasonable start
