More Aurora Another movie from the other night — it really never gets boring.

 

Comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresák

It was at it closest approach on the 1st of April the same day that Ikea and BBC had the best April fool jokes ! On that day it will be only 13 million miles away and almost visible on the naked eye. The attached image was taken on the 1st of April between 9:45 pm and 10:15 pm. It is a stack of 10 1 min images at ISO5000 with 400mm zoom.

 

 

Reprocess of the plaedies

OK so the reason for capturing the plaedies was not for the main component but was due tot he precedence of dust in the outer regions…. The original processing really did not pull out this so here is more of the image…..

A couple of movies from very cold nights and some bright light shows

 

Filling the frame!

The images of the Orion region with the Sigma 150-600mm Lens are great but I have to crop the images and i’m not fully able to process. Well i sucked it up and created from Flat field frames and master of the flat field. The image on the right is the latest with the flats applied. The image on the left is the previous process of the region from the data but only focusing on the M42 region.

M42 and friends

So finally getting around to some of the images that i have bagged ! this is a series of 72 x 30s images at ISO3200. Image was shot at 150mm using Sigma 150-600mm lens at f5.6

 

M42 and Friends with 150mm Zoom Lens on Canon 6D

First M42 of the year ……

OK So M42 ids this years big project hopefully with a wide field and burners loop. But i wanted to know what the state of play is with the 150-600mm lens and the 6D. So here is a single 30s exposure of the M42 region at 600mm tracking (not very well) ISO3200 

NGC1499 — long night but good image

Take over one night of about 3 hours of imaging with reasonable seeing. It is amazing with a 0.8 reducer the object almost fits into the frame in a single shot ! Taken with the FLT and sBIG

M33 – FLT110 and Canon 6D

OK so i could not resist this but here is a 1 hour 50 min collection of 5 min sub frames stacked of M33. I also have a 2 hour set of data from the sBIG on the object from the evening before yet to process — interesting comparison coming up. The image below is from the Sigma 150-600mm lens using the 6D also

M81 and M82 with a Telephoto Lens

Imaged with the 6D and the Sigma 150-600mm lens. 40 subframes 60 seconds at f6.3 using the sky tracker for tracking. Image aligned, stacked and processed in PixInsight.

Bodes galaxy etc with 2 smaller companion galaxies also.
