    Default Frenzy



    Last night was the first night for 3 months that wasn't cloudy at sunset (7pm local)
    By 10.30 I had a few frames laid down
    My guiding is amazing and DEC is so good that it doesn't correct for 15 seconds at a time. then a 1/2 pixel
    So I processed a couple of shots -
    I always take a couple of M42 because it's an indication of the seeing
    The total was only 6 minutes so it's not a fantastic shot but it's got nice stars and is not blown out.

    The other (Planetary Neb) is NGC3132 (not M79 as tagged) - 5 x 2 minutes and 1 x 6 mins - only one dark (6 mins)
    It was so nice to get out - more short shots to come
