The Pleiades under the street lights...


Recommended Posts

Having moved from the countryside (Bortle 4) into town (Bortle 5) I finally got around to unpacking my gear and setting everything up again.

I've lost my view to Polaris and the North so used the Asiair All Sky PA for the first time...it took a while to get the scope/mount adjusted, but eventually achieved some level of success.

I went for a couple of hours on M45 (180 second exposures) using an L-Pro filter. Considering I now have surrounding street lighting to deal with I'm not displeased with the result. At least I'm back up and running and it felt good to be gathering photons again!
