Widefield M106 - AA 70EDT-F imaging at last.


Recommended Posts

This is my first serious attempt with the 70EDT-F but using the TSRED297 0.8 RF and imaging with the ASI533MC-Pro and L-Pro filter. After a couple of hours adjusting spacing I managed almost 2hrs of data before the clouds rolled in.  The flattener spacing needs more work but I got fed up and didn't want to waste the clear skies. I was surprised even for the relatively small chip of the 533 that spacing was so critical but on the plus side there is no visible vignetting.  ( I've been a bit brutal with processing, trying to follow several tutorials at once is not a good idea 😄.)


On the HEQ5 with my portable rig:



I'm finding setup and tear down so simple and quick that I'm worried the newts will gather dust.


I'm itching to try out the  L-Enhance so might go down the field one night  to get some southern skies. (most of the view south is blocked from LEOs legs down).
