So i had wanted to try this for some time but the time has just slipped by. The Sigma Lens at 500mm should have been able to pick out the complete system but the whole setup was not very stable that night and all that was achievable was a 1 min sub frames — how ever i managed to take 240 of them at ISO 12800 — maybe a little too high !
So here is the result — its faint but the level of the dark nebulae is amazing
Images of M13 taken on the same night and with the same setup just double integration in the second series of the images
The images are of really good quality with very sharp focusing. this was somewhat a surprise as the quality of the sky was very poor with high levels of moisture present.
a zoomed region of the core shows the complexity as well as the colours of the different stars present.
