VDB152 Dark nebula

Postby carastro » Mon Jul 09, 2018 8:16 am

I and a chum went to our local campsite this weekend, boy it was hot, and we are doing it again next weekend - we must be mad.

The Moon was rising at 2am and 2.40 but a small crescent. Skies were mostly clear but Saturday better than Friday night.

Never done a dark nebula before so decided to spend both nights on the same target taking Luminance only on the WO/Atik314L camera and LRGB with the ED80/Atik460EX (dual rig).

It's been a while since I did any broadband with the Atik314L and the stars were much larger than those on the Atik460EX so I think I will only do narrowband with the Atik314L in future.

Luminance 8 x 600 (Atik314) + 5 x 600 (Atik460) on Friday
Luminance 9 x 900 (Atik314) and 9 x 600 (Atik460) on Saturday
RGB 3 x 200secs binned x 2 on Friday (Atik460)
RGB 5 x 300secs binned x 2 on Saturday (Atik460)
Total Luminance 5h 55m, total RGB 1h 43m

Grand total 7 hours and 38 minutes
