Seagull Nebula IC2177
« on: Oct 31, 2017, 15:22:01 »
2nd of 3 images done at Cairds this weekend.

Couldn't start this until 2am then left the rig running and went to bed and set the alarm.  Got confused with the clocks going back and when I woke up it was already daylight - lol.  PHD had lost the star, ha ha. 
Only had to chuck away 3 subs done in daylight though = 1 Ha and one each of Oiii and Sii.  Still it was quite nice to pack away and be able to see what I was doing. 

WO ZS71 & Atik460EX = FR x 0.8
HEQ5

Ha 600 x 17 secs (2h 50m)
Oiii & Sii 150 secs binned x 9
total 3 hours 35 minutes

Hi Carole, excellent again. From what I've read you shouldn't be able to image this from the UK, are you sure Cairds hasn't moved?. I'll have to see what I can get when the moon has stopped floodlighting sky, it'll be above the neighbours roof but hey ho, it's worth a go from the looks of it :) .
Life is like a box of chocolates, scoff it while it's in front of you.

Thanks Duncan.  Well I am not one to follow rules, I give it a go and see for myself.  I thought it was reasonably high for much of the evening.  Such a beautiful sight in those clear skies, Orion climbing high (ish) followed by Sirius. 

The only target that has defeated my defiance of the rules so far is the Antares Region.  I gave that a go but the general opinion was right. 

You should easily be able to get it OK from where you are Duncan.

Thank you Mark, been wanting to get this one for ages, but like M78 never in the right place at the right time.
