    Default 9 March 2019, Flapping In The Wind



    After a round of early morning thunderstorms and heavy rain, the sky magically cleared, albeit with a horrendous west wind that rattled windows and shook the house a bit.

    In hopes that the wind would abate at sunset, I made arrangements with my friend Tyler to meet up in my backyard with his new ZWO ASI294MC Pro camera to try out.

    While the wind did slacken, it was still pretty annoying, and the transparency of the sky wasn't the best. Seeing was decent enough, though. After scouting around the yard for the best place to avoid the wind, I determined that close to the east side of my house was probably ok. I gave Tyler the green light to come over.

    Meanwhile, I set up the AVX mount and saddled my SV102T triplet. My 25 year old nephew, Jake, came out and chatted while I was setting up. Since he'd pulled up a chair, I settled in as well as twilight was deepening and nabbed a couple of lunar captures over the roof of my house with my ASI174MC.

    I really have no excuse for the framing of the first capture other than I was busy chatting and not paying attention to what I was doing.



    And with a 2× in front of the cam...



    Both of those are the results of the best 10% of 1000 frames stacked with Autostakkert, and then on to Registax for some wavelet action.

    Jake returned indoors just as Tyler arrived. In addition to his new ASI294MC Pro, Tyler brought along an Explore Scientific ED80 that he'd borrowed from Scott Roberts (president of ES). Since Tyler already had the 294 connected to that scope along with a field flattener and spacers, we elected to swap out the SV102T on the AVX for the ED80.

    After a quick and dirty manual polar align, we fired up the mount, did a quick align, and were ready to go.

    The wind was still a bit troublesome and the sky wasn't getting any better. Despite this, we kicked off some "goofing around" captures. First up, M45. We ran off 50×30s lights and darks.

    Our focus was pretty bad with this one and that exacerbated the star bloat from the ED80.



    After that, we slapped on the Bahtinov mask and tightened up our focus. Next, we moved over to M42. Since we had not done a goto alignment, we were forced to frame the object manually, a bit arduous with longer exposures. This is the result of 30×15s lights and darks. The 15 second exposures was an accident as I'd failed to bump the time back up to 30 seconds. I was also afraid my manual polar align would not support longer exposure length. It turned out ok, though.



    After M42, we swung to the east to Leo and landed on the Leo Triplet. After some FOV adjusting and bumping up the exposure time to 30 seconds, we cranked off 30 lights on these galaxies.



    Casting about for the next target, we settled on M44 just on the eastern side of zenith. 25×30s lights and darks.



    The sky was beginning to get rather soupy, and a long band of cloud had emerged running from west to east along the ecliptic. The wind had also shifted, coming in from the north and hit us full on. That chilled things a might.

    Despite this, we noted that Virgo was being dragged up by Leo and the location of Markarian's Chain was just hitting the 30° altitude mark. Swing back to the east, we kicked off another 25×30s sequence on these galaxies.



    After that was in the can, we ran off our dark frames. The cam was cooled to -16º C during the outing. That was pretty darn cool and really cut down on the noise. Nary a hot pixel was to be seen, though I am sure that will change with time.

    The DSO images were stacked with Deep Sky Stacker and processed with StarTools. Really need some flats and bias frames, but we did not take the time to make any.

    Not bad for the limited time on target with these. The star bloat was a little troublesome with the ED80. I'd really like to try this cam with the SV102T next time out. I am really liking the ASI294. I may need to start lobbying the CFO for one.

    Anyway, that was my night last night. Clouds again today, though mercifully the wind has blown elsewhere.

    Peace and clear skies, friends!
    Bryan

    Hello Bryan,

    quite a big harvest of very good captures between the rains and storms!

    Lucky boy you,
    Here are right now just rains and storms, no Crescent, no Pleiades, no Markarian, no Leo, just nothing.

    Thank you very much,

    Thank you, JG!

    We are due for more rain as well. My back yard has been saturated since the middle of December. While we were out last night, I could hear the sod percolating.

    I hope you clear up soon, my friend!

    Hello Bryan,

    it will not clear up soon, they have announced snow for the next week coming.
    Some blackouts and railway traffic stopped elsewhere in Germany.

    Keeping my mood alive through your astrophotos,

    Man, fine images Bryan! Damn, that is fun!

    Good luck with the CFO. You do work hard and really deserve one!

    I have read so many good things about the ASI294MC Pro. What a huge upgrade that cam would be for me. That will not happen for me any time soon. That is okay. I will deal.

    Man, you two grabbed some nice images very quickly. Very impressive.

    I know that you really got the bug now. You need to start lobbying with the CFO.
    You know, really though, some of us would live in a shack and spend all of our pennies on Astro gear!
    Actually, that doesn’t sound too bad! We need the boss to keep us in check. Seriously!

    Great images and very glad that you got out.

    Thanks,

    Thanks, Jim! Much appreciated, my friend!

    I was surprised at the difference in size from my 174 and 120s. The 294 is a much larger animal. Of course, the fan and cooling apparatus, along with the much larger sensor, contributes to that.

    I'll need to determine what else I'll need to go along with it to establish my final lobbying price.

    Yeah, we do need the boss there. We'd run amok otherwise and have a shack full of stuff and no place to sleep.
