Leo Triplet March 2013

Reprocess

 

Last night I added some time to a session I did in February for a total of just over four hours of 3 minute subs. Struggled to beat the first version I did of this 2 years ago, and that was only 28 minutes for heavens sake! Got there in the end though :)

 

That star was gagging for some spikes :)

 

SW ED80/EQ5

Nikon D70 modded, Baader Neodymium filter

84 x 180sec subs, iso 800, for a total of 4 hours 10 minutes

Guiding (RA only): Quickcam Pro4000/9x50 finderscope, PHD

Stacked in DSS and processed in CS5. Spikes by StarSpikes Pro
