Padraic M Posted April 26, 2021 Share Posted April 26, 2021 This is the result of the last three nights imaging - had the mount set up and aligned in the garden for the week, and NINA was generally well-behaved. So much easier when you don't have the hour of set-up time to do every night - just power up, cool down and press go. My only issue was with ASTAP plate solving failing consistently in the sequence, when it works perfectly when I run it manually in NINA. Luckily astrometry.net works great every time. Managed quite a few automated meridian flips too! I've got Bortle 8 skies, with a 3/4-to-full moon so plenty of LP and noise in there. I'm not going to collect any more data until I get dark skies and no moon. A total of just over 11 hours, made up of: 36x 600s Ha 110x 60s Red 110x 60s Green 110x 60s Blue Luminance created from an all-channel stack. Processed in APP, Gimp, Noise Ninja. Captured with NINA and PHD2. Esprit 80, HEQ5 Pro, ASI1600MM Pro at -20C. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
