Question on data needed for Messier AP's

#1

Post by Ben Cartwright SASS »

I have been imaging DSO's off and on for several years. For the most part I know what scope and camera I used for the images but over the years have lost the other data such as who what where and when and how many subs etc, although for the majority of the ones I have already imaged, about 60 of them, I have the original subs in separate folders so I can get a pretty good estimation on what I did.
Can images that I took with my own gear (NOT the images I have used SLOOH for) be used if I don't have all the info about the capture?

The images certainly show how my progress in astro DSO imaging however I haven't progressed too far - spending more effort in solar imaging (no bugs, warm, I am awake)

We use the honor system here. If you can give us what you've got as far as acquisition data, it will be more than enough. Most folk's images are single exposures and are not what you would call a "masterpiece" but it does prove that they imaged that object.

I never met a scope I didn't want to keep. "My God, it's full of stars." Searching the skies since 1966!
