M8 - @ Tammin Dark Sky site

Recommended Posts

Hi

Had a good run with imaging M8 last weekend just before new moon at the ASWA's Tammin site and was trying out new astro-gears which I had sitting in the corner for quite a while - my first image after about 9 months since the last one!!

I was pleasantly surprised that there was fine details (bok globs) picked up by this scope's aperture when compared to my previous shot with the 8" VC200L

Scope: SW BD ED120mm OTA with Hotech FieldFlattener

CCD: Orion SSDIPro v1 OSC

Exp: 10 x 2mins,, 10 x 5mins, 10 x 8mins. no darks, just 10 x 10min Bias

PP: Nebuslosity + PS CS4

Better res one here

C & C welcomed

Thanks for looking

Cheers

Bill

Good detail Bill. I haven't been to the Tammin site yet, but I'm told it is very good. I have been out of the loop for far too long.

Bill after all the compliments I thought that a critisism was due.............. I didn't take the shot.lol. Seriously though, that is a fine example of the work amateurs can do, top notch.
