Well, it was a cold, but pretty still night.

The LX200 suggested that it was 2 degrees when I left. It certainly felt it.

I managed to stack together 41x 5-second frames at iso1600. Unmodded Canon 50D, straight through the LX200 with F/6.3 reducer.

Needs some processing, but it is coming along..

Nice detail there Shane!
Especially for short exposures.
Are you going to come up tonight?
I'm not 100% sure I can make it yet.

Roll call for tonight, who's planning on attending?

If anyone is feeling bored, I am going up this evening (Wednesday). I'm hoping to get there around, or just after 5, for a few hours of simple imaging.

Same here normally.

I got the chance to go, so I jumped at it.

I had a go at 5 targets, we'll see how they process.

It was breezy early , but it tailed off quickly enough. Temperature got down to about 8, by 9:30pm. I packed it in then, and gates were locked by 9:45.

OK, New Moon is on Tuesday.

Any takers for a Tuesday evening Pony Club run, weather permitting? I think I will go. I'm enjoying getting some imaging done at the moment.

The last couple of times, I have been there from 5 to about 9:30, and the seeing was pretty good.

I have been fighting an aggressive flu for the last couple of weeks. Aside from not wanting to infect anyone with this thing, it would have been just too cold, knowing what I'm fighting. I'm mostly over it, but I want to be completely done with it before exposing my system to cold nights.

I'm going to setup in the back yard and play with an Off-axis guider this weekend. Weather depending, I may possibly head up next Friday or Saturday 8/9 September.
