M36
« on: 10:49:02, 13 April, 2017 »
Many years since I imaged this in monochrome with a SX MX716 camera!  So although there was a bright Moon last night, they were well separated and the sky was nicely clear, so indulged myself  ;)

QSI 683 with SX AO unit on RC10 Truss.  L 13 x 2 minutes, RGB each 6 x 2 minutes, all binned 2x2.

Cheers,

Peter.

Thanks, Simon.

I was pleasantly surprised myself considering the very bright Moon, only one day past full.  And although M36 was on the other side of the sky, it was also quite low around 25 degrees altitude.  Just lucky I guess!

Cheers,

Peter.
