Chinese space station 28/1/2023

Recommended Posts

First good try to capture Chinese space station Tiangong with my Dobsonian 8 and asi224mc

This target is pretty hard and also I have to play more with settings to find the best combination of gain and exposure to be able to see the solar panels of the station. First I tried to focus on Jupiter but seeing wasn't great so I turn my hopes to moon so I tried to focus there. 18:20 local time and with max altitude of 81° was a nice chance

Gain 220 exposure 1000us            Dobsonian 8                                      Asi224mc                                                        UV IR cut filter                                          Svbony Barlow 3x

Stack 6 frames in Autostakkert and processing in Astrosurface for brightness and sharpness
