Hi fellow imagers,
almost 6 months of planetary imaging I've just got back to some DSO
work with my QSI583wsg-5. These two are taken through my C14 with Optec
telecompressor in train, for an effective ~F7.
plan this year is to do more wider field nebula work with my 4" APO,
but I can never resist trying my hand with the C14, as I do like to get
The C14 is
mounted on a the very stable platform that is the 10 year old AP1200GTO CP3,
so even at this scale I was getting average RMs of 0.5 arc seconds on
both axes, with extended periods closer to 0.3 arc seconds.
I hope that you enjoy my attempts at these 2 targets. Capture details
are below each image; click on the image for higher resolution.
