My last of three data sets from the weekend before last. I only imaged this target once before and managed only a shot of the center with the
Imaged the evenings of 9/23/21 and 9/24/21 during a 95% and 90% moon.
Sharpstar 61 EDPHII with Sharpstar 0.8
183 light frames at 120 seconds. About 6 hours total integration.
ASI533 MC-P with Optolong L-eNhance filter. Gain 104, temperature -10C.
I shot the Elephant's Trunk nebula at the start of each evening, then switched to this target. The 95% and 90% moon over the two nights did have some impact on this image. I was able to collect some nice data on the Elephant's Trunk at the beginning of each night before the moon rose, but the Heart could not escape!
Thanks a bunch for looking and please offer any thoughts, comments or critiques!
