Earth's shadow
« on: 17:20:31, 22 February, 2018 »
Just a thought,

Can you image within the Earth's Shadow.  ?     Only asking as I was looking for an object for tonight & M65 was close to the earth's shadow,  This won't affect me but if it were inside the shadow can it still be imaged or would the shadow play havoc

Rog - you're in the earths shadow as soon as it goes dark mate !!

So technically every time you image at night you are imaging in the earths shadow ?!?!

Okay maybe a silly question then but why does the SKy6 Pro show this as the earths shadow ?   this is what I meant by imaging in it ?
