Popular Post paulgrover68 Posted March 7, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted March 7, 2021 My second image of 2021... I setup under amazingly clear skies. Then cloud started to appear. It was significant but broken. Rather than do someting too different I decided to pick a bright target that had already crossed the meridian. I also thought I'd jump out of my comfort zone of unity gain and go a little higher. I guessed if the clouds were around I should at least be able to grab some shorter exposures and then shoot the core seperately. Once I started imaging the imaging I was constantly pausing the plan as clouds go in the way - out of a planned 35 exposures I ended up with 27 (three starlink trains and a sneaky couple of clouds). It took me 3 hours to grab grab those frames. The clouds closed in before I could get the core. I'm going to say it was a diffinite improvement on the night before, when I had rapidly pack up due to a sudden hailstorm. Looking at the forecast, it look like cloud for another week. I think all the cloud that came up from the south west before xmas is now coming back over from the north east! 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
