NGC 4565, Skywatcher 80ED


Recommended Posts

Conditions weren't ideal through the middle of this session with haze reducing the limiting magnitude quite significantly. There was also a problem at the end of the session when the camera hit the mount :D. This affected the 2x2 binned blue run. Overall, I'm quite pleased with the image my old 80mm scope has delivered especially as this is the first time I've imaged this object.

Amazing image through an affordable scope, I have admired your posts since getting into this expensive hobby 18 months ago..... :)

Great result. The ED80 rules the roost for budget imaging in my view. What can you say to this?

On my monitor it looks as if there is a high red caste making things a bit pink. It might be me. cos my monitor hs been driving me nuts!
