a few globs!

Recommended Posts

Last night got of to a terrible start. Supposed to have been clear all night but it clouded over at 21.30 and showed no signs of clearing by 23.30. So i went to bed, got some sleep and tried again for 3.30. This time the moon was just setting, the skies had cleared and things looked good. Up and running by 4am. Straight into imaging M13, quickly followed by M56 and then M92. Part way through M56 the clouds returned and steadily increased. Still managed 45 images of M13, 17 of M56 and 14 of M92. Kept the exposures short at 35secs. Used ISO800 for M13 and ISO1600 for the other two.

Setup was the EQ6 Skyscan, Orion ED 100, Canon10D @ prime focus, no guiding, no filters. ImagesPlus 2.10A for stacking/aligning and Photoshop CS2 for processing.

Thanks all!

Just good to be out. No hardship getting up at 3.30.....best time of the day. So still and peaceful :sunny:

Worth it alone to see Jupiter that well. Shame i wasn't organised to image it.

That moon is so bright though, doubt I'll go out again now until after last quarter.

Hi Russ,

Lovely images - you know how much I like Glob's...

Well dome Russ, you're a better man than me getting up at 03:30 to start again. I either stay up or pack it in, but once I've gone to bed, thats it!!
