The Dumbbell Nebula – Sony IMX224

M27, The Dumbbell Nebula. 97×8 sec @ Gain 2098, RT IMX224, TV-85 at F/5.6, Sharpcap 2.9.

I rushed to setup and shoot this one before it went behind a tree.  It was only 97 frames at 8 seconds for a total of about 13 minutes.   But, I love  how it turned out with this Sony IMX224 camera.  It looks as good as or better than most of my DSLR shots of the same object.

It looks even better if I combine the two cameras’ datasets into one image to get the best of both:

M27 IMX224 data combined with 48 minutes (24×120 sec @ ISO 1600) of DSLR data taken with the same telescope.
