Fun with a One-shot-color CCD

Hi all,

 

While I haven’t sent anything new in a while, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. Here are some of my images taken from our backyard with a one-shot-color CCD camera. Essentially, an astronomical camera set up to shoot in color like commercial cameras. I also thought I’d change the way I set up our website, changing it to more of a narrative with pictures than simply a picture show.

 
Details are on the image pages. Everything riding on an AP1200GTO mount.

Enjoy, and please let me know how you like this approach!

NICE -  I switched to OSC after 2 years of mono and NB filters.  Not going back yet...
Can you tell which are which?

hehe ... I've been having fun with my old ST-4000XCM as well, shooting through the light pollution of Los Angeles while not leaving home. I never thought it was worth even trying, but my first efforts turned out well enough that I decided I would do a Messier survey from home. I've collected 47 Messiers now, grabbing 30 minutes of data from each. I'm not even bothering to take out the sky glow gradient -- leaving them in as a badge of adversity.

In the process I've become significantly more adept at setup, alignment, point mapping, and processing.

Usually the giveaway on an OSC image: there ain't much blue. I know I could pick out a few Ron. :)

(I have a few favorites posted on my blog http://mojo.whiteoaks.com )
