Messier 45 from Kelling
« on: 17:34:46, 19 September, 2012 »
Here is Messier 45 taken in the  :snore: early hours of Sunday. The sky was so clear, and with everything working  :big_clap: It would have been rude to go to bed early.

3x10min Through my Zenith Star 66SD and 1000D.

No dark's or flats have been used. I don't have any  :embarrass:

Thank you Dave.

I think I am getting there with IP.
I need to make sure I take Darks and Flats, to improve noise and flatten the field.
