I think the last time I shot this was in 2014. This would be the first time imaging it with my new QHY183c camera. Not too bad for only 1.8 hours of exposure. Plus, it was very short 15 second sub-images, which kept the stars nice and tight.
I imaged the galaxy above and the globular below on Sunday, May 10, 2020. Very nice weather that day and a pretty good evening, too. Being I had to work the next day, I cut the session short and only got data on two objects.
These are all the objects I managed to image on the night of Wednesday, April 29, 2020 and on into Thursday morning. SharpCap 3.2 LiveStacking with dark and flat calibration plus dithering was used for acquisition. Only minimal processing for all of these captures in Fitsworks and PS CS3.
I was trying not to waste a very clear evening after a storm had moved through earlier that day. Not too bad, I guess.
