IC5070 The Pelican Nebula
« on: 16:12:02, 06 August, 2017 »
My first Nebula image of 2017! Having spent most of my time observing variable stars I thought I should see if I can remember how to take an image. This is the result of 21 x 600s subs in my Megrez 90 telescope with 0.8x focal reducer and an Atik 460Ex CCD camera with a 3nm Astrodon Ha filter and a nearly full Moon in the early hours of this morning 6 Aug 2017.

Very nice Dave, the 3nm filter has done a good job of reducing the effect of the glare of the moon.  Jim

Super stuff Dave. Its like riding a bike, you might wobble a bit to start with but it all soon comes flooding back.
