    Default Thor's Helmet



    Best final SMALL Thor's Helmet.jpg


    This is the last of the three images I took this weekend.

    This is a 30 min exposure of Thor's Helmet. It was supposed to be a 1.5 hour exposure but I chose a bad guide star and I did not know it because my dog and I fell asleep at 4:30am.

    7 x 5 min, @f2 (hyperstar) Guided by Lodestar X2, Classic Carbon Fiber C11, QHY10@-35c, CGEM-DX, Polemaster/StarSense/Skysafari/PixInsight/Nebulosity/PHD-2.

    C11 SCT on CGEM DX, GEG-OAG, StarSense, QHY10-CCD, NexImage 5, ASI224MC.

    Very nice considering the amount of time you wound up with. Sounds like the dog needs a little more training!
