May 20th Images

Post by MapleRidge »

Hi everyone...

I had a chance to image on Monday over my lunch break but limited time to process and post the images. It was a relatively quick session with an Ha full disk through the DS LS80T and a few higher res image with the CR-150 mod. There was a lot of activity and I would have liked to spend more time at the scope but I had to get back to work :o

The FD image is a composite of separate disk and limb exposures with the limb inverted, using the ASI1600MM camera and a 1.6x barlow:

The higher resolution images were shot though the CR-150 OTA with a single DSII etalon in place and the B1800Ha blacking filter. The camera was the ASI432MM with a 3x focal extender:

That's all for the session, the next up will be Friday's images once I get them processed.
