IC5070 The Pelican
« on: Nov 08, 2008, 09:41:51 »

Braved the fireworks, last night. This is 15x480 secs, 2 x600secs, ZS66, 0.8 fr.  I wanted to take more but scope was going to flip, nearby fireworks started, clouds came over & then it started to rain mid packaway.

Thanks

Nice image,

was this narrowband?

I spent last night trying to collimate the scope. Weird and wonderful results, probably due to the bad seeing.

Yes, Mac, Ha. I wanted to have a go at OIII, but no time.

Well done Fay for braving those fireworks - you managed to catch a good image.

Using CCDInspector?

Fay, well done in getting any imaging done last night, I set up to do some Ha on north american and had to paack up after about 30 mins once the cloud rolled in and the fireworks started.

Thanks John. I have just reprocessed this on the desktop. I usually have to do that, but the first image was from laptop.

I think this is a bit better.
