This image is actually from data gathered on Aug 17. Heavily speckled from duddy darks (note the red, blue, green hot pixels), but this image still turned out alright. This stack was done on the NP101is, but with the 1.5 imaging extender on. No filters were used; 3 minute exposures autoguided with PHD and a new Orion autoguider (and not planetary imager!) This could certainly benefit from some additional aperture but I was still pretty pleased with how well it came out. Nice spiral edge-on More >
