Cocoon and some PNs
« on: 13:23:42, 22 September, 2012 »
The Cocoon neb was from Thursday evening, very windy and only 60 frames from the 100 I took were usable.
Using the SW 200p unguided, Samsung 2001 @ 10 seconds exposure.
The planetary nebs were Saturday night, really good conditions. I imaged more objects than shown here but unfortunately focus drifted off as the night wore on and they came out rather poor.
Using the Tal 200k unguided, Samsung 2001 @ 5 seconds exp x 50. Approx 45-47 used in the final stack.

Cocoon nebular IC 5146

Blinking Nebula NGC 6826

Blue snowball nebula NGC 7662

NGC 6543
