Messier 15
« on: 11:54:31, 12 October, 2018 »
I first imaged the globular cluster M15 in Pegasus in 2008, but it was a very hurried image, lacking in depth and colour,  so with the target being well placed at the moment I decided to revisit it.  The nights of 9th and 10th October were forecast to be clear, and indeed they were, although a bit hazy. But the seeing on 9th was the worst I have ever seen from home with the fwhm varying from 6 to 19 in a few seconds so that was a no go  >:(  Still pretty poor on 10th, but just good enough to try for the bright cluster. I would have liked better seeing and more exposures before the haze worsened, but this will have to do for now, certainly a considerable improvement on my 2008 effort.

QSI 683 on RC10 wth SX AO unit. Luminance 11 x 5 minutes, RGB each 4 x 5 minutes, all binned 2x2.

Poor weather for the next few days, then the Moon will be waxing, but maybe I'll get another image in before the forum closes.  Best of luck guys, as I said before I'll not be going to Facebook.

Cheers,

Peter.
