Northern Trifid NGC1579
« on: Oct 02, 2019, 16:20:33 »
Been wanting to do this target for quite a while, but this is definitely a work in progress as it needs a lot more data, but unfortunately it was behind the trees when I wanted to start imaging, so I had to choose something else while I was waiting for it to rise.

So only managed the following, plan to get more at another camp.

9 x 600 Lum
30m RGB 2 subs of each @ 300secs
WOZS71/Atik428EX
ED80/Atik460EX
Total 2 hours

Updated version with less noise than before:

A very challenging target!
Well done.

That looks like an interesting target.

It certainly needs a bit more data to do it justice.

Thanks Mark, yes I am VERY aware it's well under sampled, but thought I would post it up for interest as I don't think any-one on here has done it before.  It's a great broadband target, but too small for your set up I think, unless you do it with the C11.  I would love to see what you could capture with your fantastic cameras.

I plan to do a serious attempt at it from Cairds when I can get a longer session on it.
