Hello space enthusiasts! No updates for a while, but just wanted you to know that a lot is going on behind the scenes. I have had several imaging sessions in the backyard. Recent tree removal has opened up my skies quite a bit. I can now image to the celestial equator in the south. I have been experimenting with several filters on the modded Canon T5i. I am now upgrading my workflow with Pixinsight. Some of you may know, Pixinsight is quite intensive and the equivalent of Photoshop for the astrophotography community. So, much time is spent refining the workflow with filters and modded DSLR
I, also, just received a new imaging instrument from Astro-Physics! Hoping it is up and running by late winter/early spring.
So, a lot is going on behind the scenes. Hoping my Cave nebula comes together in the next few weeks. The imaging window for that object is coming to an end for the year. I have data on M78/Barnard’s loop as well as Cone Nebula. The DATA collection and image processing on these objects will go into late winter for sure.
Hope all is well with you and clear skies.
Happy New Year!
