Winx

This is just one evening's data prior to the Sydneyside monsoon that seems to have settled in for the week

I expect I'll smooth out the data in due course, but for now...

the link is here

That looks really nice Peter, always great to see the Horsey up close.

If you are going to add more subs in the future, maybe you can ditch the sub that has the satellite trail.

Impressive for such a short integration time. Outstanding fine details already. A great picture in the making.

Your images continue to romp ahead in terms of both absolute sharpness and depth-per-hour.

Thanks guys. Another 2 hours of luminance should be enough...plus a bit more RGB to clean up the noise....as for that pesky trail...turns out it is a diffraction spike from Zeta Orionis (!) which is just out of field.

So far so good Peter! Great colour. It leaves me wanting more (Lum) though. Look forward to a revised version.

Ta Leon, Marcus....the system is humming along quite well at present, which is more than I can say for the weather...just need a tiny slither more...or a bucket.

Last? ...no way! You never know when a dark horse might get to the front of the pack.
