A Little Whirlpool M51 15 April 2012 +

Same ol' same ol' :)


I uploaded a version of this a month or so back that was supposed to be a combination of this year's data and last year's. Turned out it wasn't - what I got out of DSS was exactly last years data - it completely ignored this year's. DSS playing silly buggers.


This, on the other hand, is the combined data - 2 hours 23 minutes of 60 second subs. This is about three quarter frame, and rotated to provide a different angle - change is as good as a rest. Nice and small and cute :)


SW 200p, EQ5 unguided

Nikon D70 modded, iso1600, Baader MPCC and Neodymiun filter

142 x 60sec

darks, bias and flats.

Stacked in DSS and processed in CS5
