    Default Sword of Orion in Galileoscope



    This just fits into the FOV with my 2.3 MP Blackfly RGB camera (1/1.2" sensor) rotated 90°. Field rotation takes its toll too so there is missing data in the corners even though it is already heavily cropped.

    With the recent firmware update the camera can take 32 second exposures and even though my tracking is not great it was workable for the relatively wide field of the Galileoscope (piggybacked onto the Celestron 8" via a camera adapter) with some additional downsampling and discarding a quarter of the frames. In the end I stacked 270 x 32s RGB which makes it one of my longer total integration times
    -- Christian

    Planetary + short exposure deep sky imaging from urban 15th floor balcony.
    Celestron 8" + Galileoscope. 2x + 3x barlow, 0.5x + 0.63x reducer. ADC corrector.
    Point Grey cameras (Flea 3 / Blackfly) + EOS 400D. HALCON + PixInsight.
