M57 - The Ring Nebula

#1

Post by Graeme1858 »

Here's M57 from 19/05/20 22:50.

This was one of the first deep sky images I had a go at a couple of years ago when I didn't have a guide scope and even less of a clue than I have now. So I thought I would give it another go.

20 x 240 seconds at 800iso. Could have done more, the sky was clear as a bell. But it was a school night.
10 x Darks. The first one was a mass of red because the sensor was sitting at 46C so I had to wait a while!
20 x Bias
20 x Flats at 1/25 second on Av. The histogram looked high but they turned out ok.

Stellarium
APT
PHD2

Not sure what happened in the over processed centre but quite pleased with the colours.

Regards

Graeme
