tomato Posted November 17, 2022 Share Posted November 17, 2022 This is a ridiculously short 76 mins of integration of Abell 347 in Andromeda with NGC 891 up in the top RH corner. Captured with the Esprit 150/IMX571c/UVIR cut filter with a ~70-80% illuminated moon about 40 degrees away. I like the variety and number of galaxies in the FOV so will be adding to this hopefully on Friday night when the moon is not so intrusive. Just out of interest I remember imaging this region almost exactly 5 years ago with my then newly purchased mono G2-8300. This image was captured with a 102mm APO with some 4.5 hrs of LRGB data. So it's not a fair comparison I know, but the most striking thing for me is how star separation (with StarXterminator) has contributed to the processing of the OSC image. I wonder what we will have in another 5 year's time? Thanks for looking.
