NGC 488 - an unusual galaxy.
« on: 16:46:22, 18 October, 2018 »
In Pisces, mag 10.4 and quite small at 5.4'x3.9' Very tightly wound spiral arms.  I'd seen an image by Adam Block, which as usual is excellent, and prompted me to have a go.  But relatively low from NE England and proved difficult in mediocre seeing to tease out detail.  Anyway, QSI 683wsg on RC10 with SX AO unit.  Luminance 12 x 10 minutes, RGB each 4 x 10 minutes all binned 2x2.  Lots of distant background galaxies.


Telescopes: GSO RC10 Truss, Meade S5000 127, TMB 105, TS65 Quad, Solarscope SV50
Binoculars: Canon 15x50 IS
Camera lenses: Canon 400L f5.6, Canon 70-200L f4 zoom, various old M42 thread
Cameras: QSI 683wsg, SX AO, LodestarX2, Artemis285, Canon 350D (modded), Canon 700D, GPCAM2 (colour), GPCAM2 (mono), LE Vesta Pro, Toucam.
Mounts:  Gemini G41 with Pulsar controller. EQ6 Pro, EQ3-2 with Autostar. Star Adventurer
