  1. M45 superdeep

    15 hours worth of 40-minute subs using the Sky 90 array Greg
  2. Virgo/Coma galaxy supercluster

    This is a composite negative B&W image of the Virgo/Coma galaxy supercluster region. There are 13 Messier objects in the frame. Can you find them all?? Greg
  3. Alpha & Beta Canis Minoris

    Star spikes rotated a bit for obvious reasons (if you look at the original). Greg
  4. Alpha & Beta Canis Minoris

    Procyon & Gomeisa with the Canon 200mm lenses - a 2-frame mosaic. Greg
  5. SAO76540

    I wanted to put a reprocess of this dusty region in Taurus on here - but it looked rubbish So here's the original. Greg
  6. Definitive M31

    Noel pulled out all the stops in processing this one. I think he is trying to encourage me to get the frames off the top and bottom of M31 I need no encouragement - next clear sky - I'm out there Greg
  7. M31 in perspective

    Just for a laugh I combined some old Canon 200mm lens on Canon 5D MkII data with the recent Sky 90 data to see M31 in perspective Greg
  8. M31 with the Sky 90 array

    With a full Moon (red circle) for size comparison. Greg
  9. M31 with the Sky 90 array

    Here's a quick process of last night's M31 data taken with the Sky 90 array. This is 9-hours worth of 20-minute subs. Weather permitting I will go for a LOT more data on this one and may start off with 30-minute subs Greg
  10. M31

    I took some flats and bias frames and sent the calibrated data to Noel who did a better job on the colour. Then I stuck some spikes on the stars Greg
  11. Another DC image

    Actually - VERY deep images of the region show it's full of red emission, probably all coming from the Heart nebula which you can just see top left. Greg
  12. M31

    I didn't refocus during those 110-minutes, but it was coming up to refocus time Usually need to refocus the Hyperstar every hour on a cold night. Greg
  13. M31

    Got out for a couple of hours last night before the Moon rose. This is 11 x 10-minute subs using the Hyperstar III on the C11 with a Trius 814C OSC CCD. Noel Carboni processed this one as it was very difficult to sort out (flatten) with a large bright nucleus in the middle of the frame. Greg
  14. Another DC image

    A different crop and process on a big Double Cluster FOV image. Greg
  15. Above Caph

    Caph is in the lower left. This is another 200mm lens image, 18 subs, 15-minutes per sub. Processing for this one by Noel Carboni who screwed the pants off it trying to bring out CTB1 which you can barely make out bang in the centre of the image. Greg
