M63 The Sunflower


Recommended Posts

I dusted off the old 8" LX200GPS and its wedge, lugged it outside trying to avoid slipped discs or hernia - (that is one heavy lump of metal), strapped on the old 700d (the 2600 was on the wide field rig) and gave it a go.


60 x 180s ISO800, stacked in APP processed in PI.


All in all, not too bad for a 20 y.o scope and a 8 y.o. DSLR. I've started using multistar and Predictive PEC in PHD2 and was getting around 0.8 - 0.9" Total RMS on this run which was by far the best I've seen on this rig. Though I still had to crop out a chunk for coma.


C & C welcome.
