NGC 891 (2nd Try) – Sony IMX224

NGC 891 on Dec 12, 2017. 60×20 sec @ 1832 Gain, RT Sony IMX224, TV-85 at F/5.6, SharpCap 2.9.

This version of the Outer Limits Galaxy came out better than my first go of it with the Rising Tech IMX224 cam, even though it seems to be slightly out of focus.    I bet I will be trying again soon, since I think it could be better with the right exposure/gain, location and of course, better focus.   🙂

Horse Head Nebula – Sony IMX224

More EAA fun with the Sony IMX224-based camera.  This was taken during the nightime of Dec 12/13, 2017.  The final version here has over 80 minutes of data.  It was acquired in a high LP environment with no filters on the camera except for the UV/IR cutoff.

I need to get a UHC filter for it, but as you can see, I might do good to use none just to get the base colors and use the UHC just for extra nebulosity, only.
