So here's the three galaxies from my 07/05/20 session.
Can I ask, do they still count if they're really rubbish images? It was a full Moon and with no hand controller I was doing short duration unguided captures! They all share the same 10 Dark frames, 20 Bias and 20 Flats.
M40 - to quote Steve sdbodin "The Lamest Messier
Just a pair of stars then. Interesting faint nebulosity around the near star, 70 UMa, probably just Moon glare and over stretched processing. 3 x 30 second Lights at 1600ISO but DSS
only stacked 1 due to lack of stars, I think. The flat frames didn't seem to work!
M94 - Croc's Eye Galaxy.
Just caught the core and the line of sight star. I'll have to have another go at this one some time because the whole thing fills my 600D frame nicely. 4 x 40 second Lights at 1600ISO, DSS
M108 - Surfboard Galaxy.
Just a faint smudge really. Great name though! 3 x 40 second Lights at 1600ISO, DSS
Hopefully the new hand controller will show up some day soon.
