    Deciced on the Ghost aka IC63. I only did 600s shots so I could get 20 Ha – 8 OIII and 8 SII and see how it looked in color. Last year it was a favorite but only did Ha.

    It came out ok. I put the STF8300 on the TOA150 and st the spacing for the ff/red and think I got it pretty good.

    The target needs longer exposure I think. Last years was 1200s and showed better details. So tonight I will shoot 1200s Ha and maybe some OII and SII or I can just do a night of each filter and be done in 3 days which may be the easiest and best way.

    Still wont let me load the pics as either Tiff or Png.  Tiff was 49,753kb and Png 10,559kb

     

    So here is Jpeg version

    It looks good. I agree some longer exposures would probably help.  That’s a hard target for me to get where I live.  Looks good keep going.

    Yeah I got 16 – 20 mins Ha last night. Going for 8 & 8 OIII & SII tonight and same tomorrow night. That will give me 16hrs so should be good.  I also moved the ghost up a bit to get the nebula cloud below better.

    There ya go!  I really want to shoot that target but it’s just too low in my polluted skies.  Same deal with Thor.

    Ive got an 80 pound boarder Collie whimpering in my lap from lightning right now.  No shooting tonight

    Came out well. Ya that target needs plenty of time. All I got is clouds and rain.
