M20 September 2022

Pleased with this image of M20 also known as the Trifid Nebula. Still some bloat on Stars, will try combining SVBony IR/Cut filter with the SVbony CLS on next attempt. Roughly 3hrs of data, stacked and background normalised in AstroPixelProcessor. No Flats, Bias of Dark Frames used with this one as it’s the first go with the SVBony CLS and didn’t have chance to prep.

NGC4945 August 2022

Challenged with a moonlit sky but a new camera to get familiar with (QHY533C) the target NGC4945 provided a reasonable target. I have been experiencing some star ‘bloat’, however realising the .75 reducer increases the back-focus requirement to 80mm I’m hoping to fix that shortly when some extension tubes arrive. The QHY533c from sensor to plate is 17.5mm of back-focus, so just around 62mm of back-focus to find. NGC4945 or Caldwell 83 is a spiral galaxy within the Centaurus constellation in the southern sky

Southern Pinwheel August 2022

The Southern Pinwheel galaxy (M83) is found in the southern skies. It’s a pleasing target and despite an alomost full Moon I’m pleased with the first attempt at this target. I’m having some star bloat which is likely because I’m awaiting some extension tubes to get the backfocus between the .75 reducer and the QHY533c to 80mm.
