Using the HEQ5+MC 102/1300+ASI 224MC, I obtained these Mars images.
Using the HEQ5+MC102/1300+ASI224MC setup, I’ve been recording Saturn. Some stack contain the best 5% of 10k frames. And I present a compositing process, showing Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Enceladus and maybe Mimas.
It appears that 17×6 minutes at ISO 1600 are barely a start for this nebulosity. I used my N 150/750, Baader MPCC Mark III, Canon 1100D mod, HEQ5, aided by the IDAS LPS D2 filter. I acquired the lights from Dângău Mare, Cluj county. I personally, call this nebula by an indecent word, much like the sword of Orion. NGC 6820 is the little, yellowish nebula hiding in front of the larger, mainly red complex.
I imaged the Messier 11 Wild Duck Cluster, using the N 150/750, Baader MPCC Mark III, IDAS LPS D2, Canon 1100D mod, HEQ5 setup. I recorded 16×3 minutes of light at ISO 1600, on the night of 2018-08-07-08, from Dângău Mare, Cluj county.
Using the good old setup, N 150/750, Baader MPCC Mark III, Canon 1100D mod with the IDAS LPS D2 filter, HEQ5, I took 15×4 minutes of the Sharpless 112 nebula in Cygnus. Would have taken more, had the Moon not risen. This nebula deserved more attention, it has a fairly high surface brightness, it’s not that small, being comparable to the Tulip nebula. But SH2-112’s neighborhood literally outshines it – just think about the North America Nebula, the Crescent Nebula, the Sadr Nebula, the Propeller, not to mention the Veil complex. I couldn’t even find a proper name for this object. I imaged from Dângău Mare, Cluj.
It is the first light of my new ASI 224MC camera. It is a much much much much much more comfortable world than the Scopium camera – although the latter has been battle tested, and it grew to my heart inspite of its limitations. 10000 frames, Gain=349 Exposure=0,01. I used the SW MC 102/1300 with a barlow, mounted on the HEQ5.
I imaged the lunar eclipse, as much as the clouds allowed me to. The main instrument was the Canon 1100D mod @ SW MC 102/1300 on the HEQ5. The secondary instrument was the battle tested veteran raspberry pi, and I used a Canon A800 too, and my phone.
This is the first light of the IDAS LPS D2 filter (the DSLR clip in version) I added to my toolkit. Using the Canon 1100D mod, I imaged 12×4 minutes at ISO 1600 with the N 150/750, Baader MPCC Mark III, HEQ5 setup, from Gyerőfidongó, Kolozs county.
