Lagoon from A.S.I.G.N. Observatory

G'day folks,

I have had a very good night here in the observatory with a dark sky, a new light pollution filter and a cool 5 degrees celcius in the dome.

Heres 44 minutes at ISO 800 on the Lagoon. Imaged with a Celestron Nexstar 11, focal reducer to F6.3. Guided manually with a ToUCam on a piggybacked ED80.

Cheers, Baz.

Wow, that's just fantastic, and manually guided too, how many subs was the 44 mins made up of?

Baz, really nice. Can't believe you can get  such a good image in such a short time & 3-5 min subs.

Do you live in a good dark sky?
