Astrobdlbug Posted July 19, 2022 Share Posted July 19, 2022 (edited) Been a while since I posted, , had a few months away from astro imaging - been rather busy selling astro gear and building a new imaging rig. Ive been 'collecting' the bits since last Christmas. I was looking for something a bit more portable so I could attend astro parties and go to dark sites around the country. So in summary I have a Stellamira 90ED Triplet plus the matched FF/FR with my ASI2600MC. I also bought a 50mm William Optics 50mm guider and ASI290MM. I have also gone down the ASIair route embracing the ZWO ecosystem if it makes it easier when working away from the observatory. Ive got some shorter cables and an camera mounted cable tidy, so hopefully will clean up the cable runs. I am impressed how it all just works with ASIair and links via WiFi to an Android tablet - it would appear I've started using ASIair just as a major software update was released that includes a skymap/goto module - certainly simpler than having to plan everything in Telescopius and download the plan to the ASIair Focal Length 432mm Focal Ratio: 4.8 Resolution: 1.8"x1.8" per pixel Field of View: 3.12° x 2.08° So these are two images below are mainly still fine tuning how everything works and F/FR spacing - so a couple of very recognisable summer targets with 1 -1.5hrs of 5 minute subs using L-Extreme. Still have some eggy stars that may be spacing or some tilt on the sensor - fine tuning... Camera did well cooling down to 0degC from air temp of 26degC. Thanks for looking and good to get back imaging and re-visiting a couple of classics. Bryan.
