Two Quick Widefields - Needle Galaxy & M3

Recommended Posts

Less than an hour on each of these two. Quite windy last night, but star sizes seemed very good (<1.9 FWHM).


WO Redcat 51 and Optolong L-Pro filter

ASI294mc pro -10C unity gain


ASIair pro


Integration in Astro Pixel Processor, processing in Photoshop CC 



Grabbed a quick widefield of NGC 4565 (Needlee Galaxy), NGC 4559 & NGC 4494






Followed this up with another quick capture, this time M3 Globular Cluster

M3 is an old favourite of mine, the three bright stars that frame by chance always struck me as appropriate. You have to grab the photons while you can 🙂.


Conditions were awful last night, I managed  about 2.6 hrs on M109 but I'm not expecting too much at my focal length.
