Dust clouds in Orion3/2/2020
The weather here in the UK has not been good for astrophotography so far this year. Even though this is only just under 5 hours it's taken 4 weeks to get the data. I was hoping to get at least double the exposure time but the moon is getting prominent now, Orion low and by next month I think it will be out of view.
M42 : The Great Orion Nebula1/24/2020
First light of my new RASA 8 scope. There was only a brief 2 hour clear period last night and I managed to get 60 mins of HA which I've integrated into an image taken with the Esprit 80. The HA for 1 hour with the RASA has more nebulosity than 10 hours on the Esprit (though the Esprit data had lower gain settings so not best comparison). Ideally this needs far more RGB and HA for better image quality but could not resist a quick first experiment with new kit.
