Crab nebula, M42, M108, M109.

Post by smerral »

The Crab nebula, the heart of M42, M 108 and M 109. Scope was the Celestron C8-XLT with a combination of 0.63x and 0,5x reducers, giving me around f.4. Camera was the Altair Astro colour GPcam basic. Mount was the Ioptron CEM 25P. Captured with APT and guided with PHD. 10x300sec subs each (10x30 secs for M42). Stacked in Nebulosity, processed in Photoshop, Flats but no darks.
