IC1396 The Elephant Trunk
« on: 10:11:09, 13 September, 2018 »
Great night last night Managed to get just enough for this one. I let it pass the meridian with less than an inch to spare before fouling the mount. I was going to do a meridian flip and carry on but the haze came in so I parked the scope and called it a night. I think the noise levels are acceptable and will probably shelve this data and move onto something else.
I used very loose G2V exposure weights for the RGB, Exposure times were 5x600in Red 5x420 in Green 5x560 in Blue and 2x1800 in Ha
Thanks for looking  :thumbup:
