  1. Flaming Star

    Cheers Shane - sounds great from the cooling alone!! Greg
  2. Flaming Star

    Which camera Shane?? Greg
  3. Flaming Star

    Yes on cold nights -25C is no problem - but during the summer -15C is the best I can do. Greg
  4. M44 region

    Combining with the other data reduced a lot of the muck, but also I took a load off the left hand side in the first one that I didn't have to do in the second one Greg
  5. M44 region

    Here's the reprocessed image using up to date calibration files. The two bright red stars over to the left are both Carbon Stars. Greg
  6. M44 region

    Just realised that last night's data was actually buggered because the calibration files weren't right for one of the cameras. End of last year one of the cameras went back for repair - I didn't redo the BIAS and FLAT frames, and a close look at last night's image shows artefacts. So right now I'm making up new sets of BIAS and FLAT frames for both cameras, and then I'll redo the last 3 sets of data. Greg
  7. M44 region

    I got 18 x 15-minute subs with the 200mm lenses on this region last night and combined it with some earlier 200mm data. Greg
  8. M81 region

    A quick process of last night's data. This is 8 x 30-min subs on the M81 region with the 200mm lenses. Nothing special about the galaxies - but look how well the Integrated Flux Nebula (galactic cirrus) shows up. Might well get some more hours on this region with the 200mm lenses Greg
  9. Flaming Star

    Yes it was -5C when I took that image - but it seems to be warming up again now - back into double figures Greg
  10. Flaming Star

    And here's the Noel Carboni process of same. Greg
  11. Flaming Star

    7 hours of 30-minute subs on the Flaming Star nebula region in Auriga. Need at least another 7 hours on this one. Greg
  12. Comet Wirtanen 46P

    I've felt 50 degrees in Crete and Arizona - it feels life threatening walking down the street. Greg
  13. A couple of days before Christmas I found a new Prime Number with just over 454,000 digits https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=125878 Greg
  14. Comet Wirtanen 46P
