Cocoon, OSC camera.

Here's another from the OSC Atik 4000 in the TEC 140. Five hours (to try to get the dust reasonably low in noise.) Subs ot ten minutes for the same reason.

Your wish is my command! (From last year.)

Sky quality metres that appear here usually give values around 21.5. The manufacturers say that 22 is the best to be expected anywhere. The scale is logarithmic. Well heeled friends who go to Namibia for the souuthern sky say the zenith is exactly the same there as here. I do get low lying LP, very slight, up to about 20 degrees if the air is not dry. If the atmosphere is dry the LP is minimal down to the horizons, which are not level but raised by an average of about 5-15 degrees, formng a barrier.

We are at Lat 44 so things are about 9 deg higher than Derbyshire.631072630_xa4Ym-XL.jpg

A stunning result Olly.

The processing is spot on, very smooth and natural with great definition between the different elements.

Congrats.:)
