NGC 2683 The U.F.O. Galaxy


Recommended Posts

This is 3.5 hours using the dual Esprit 150 rig and ASI 178 cameras. 

Lum 32 x 3 min

RGB 13 x 3 min each

I currently dither on the RGB scope every 3 subs so I'm dropping 1 in 3 Lum subs, but I will try pushing this out to 1 in 4 or 5 as I couldn't see any appreciable walking noise in the final image.

Calibrated and stacked in APP, processed in ST 1.7 and AP, I  ran it through the PI image solver and annotation scripts to try and identify the numerous background galaxies, but it missed quite a few.

Thanks for looking.

yep Galaxy season is definitely here...lovely shot

Thanks Peter, like most of my images it needs more integration time, but  there are so many galaxies and so little time.

Really lovely image! Lots of detail to be appreciated :)

On the note of losing frames on one cam while the other dithers, I know that Astrophotographytool (APT) at least can synchronize dithers for you to prevent that, might be worth a look?

Hth,

Thanks for this, on looking this up I have now discovered that NINA, my current choice of imaging control software, does something very similar. It does mean running everything through one laptop, but that should be OK. I will give it a try on my next outing.
