Sculptor Galaxy Take 2
Tonight I managed my first round of deep sky object imaging with PHD2 guiding successfully. I managed 15 frames of 30s taken in mono (I don’t yet have RGB or narrowband filters for my Hyperstar lens). Taken from my backyard in Melbourne, this is the Sculptor Galaxy again. There’s more detail and some evidence of the dust patterns in this one.
Processing: 30x15s mono
Camera: ZWO ASI 1600mm-cooled
Telescope: Celestron 9.25″ EdgeHD with Hyperstar lens
Capture: Sequence Generator Pro
Stacking: Deep Sky Stacker
Auto levels in photoshop with some exposure tweaks.
I’ve yet to learn darks, flats or any genuine post processing. All in time I suppose!
