Eighty minutes of Horsehead and Flame Nebulae
« on: Jan 01, 2009, 15:11:05 »
A very successful night.

Over eighty minutes of prime-focus exposure on this very faint target near Orion's belt. I still haven't got the guide camera yet, so this was manually guided the whole time on an EQ6 mount using an illuminated reticule eyepiece.

The problem now is saving from HUGE .Tiff's to reasonabley sized JPEG's for posting around on the net without suffering too many artefacts or becoming lossy......

Camera: Orion Starshoot Pro Color DSI
Telescope: Skywatcher ED120 APO
Guidescope: Skywatcher ED80 APO W/2X Barlow

Hope you like it!
