M45 - Making use of the fast RASA


Recommended Posts

Yup, 2 or more months of constant cloud and then last night a slight glimmer of hope as ClearOutside predicted some 50% changes of clear skies throughout the night.

So perfect conditions for the RASA8 and why I brought it, to make use of these small windows of clear skies.

I had several targets in hand, Bodes / IFN and M45

Learning from my mistakes (I have only had the RASA since July), I put my sub length right down, removed the lEnhance filter and went for it.

So here is M45 in 60 x 1minute subs in Bortle 6 skies with a basic LP filter in front of the ASI 2600 Pro MC

I had to ditch 1/2 of the subs due to constant cloud invasion, but managed to get 60x 1min subs and I think it worked out quite well.

Also noticed that after removing the lEnhance filter, my star colours are back to a more natural colour.
