The Monkey Head, Jellyfish and M35 - Samyang widefield.


Recommended Posts

Trying to find objects that will stand out under a full moon. This is what the Samyang 135 caught piggybacking on my dual-RASAs two nights ago. I spiced it up with about 50% RASA data to the main features. There are 11 Sharpless objects in the image, and of course M35 - the star cluster at the bottom.

Camera was Omegon veTEC571C with IDAS NBZ (Ha+Oiii) filter. 85 x 5 min, so about 7 hours. Processing in PI and PS, which of course included Russ Croman's magnificent XT-actions.

Cheers, Göran

Thanks Dan!

The framing was rather accidental. I put my attention on framing the RASA image and see what ever the Samyang piggyback is catching as a bonus.

I only focus it manually, but the temperature was rather steady, falling from -5°C to - 7°C during the night so it did not affect focus.
