The incorporation of Halpha data has been done according to the formulation indicated.... Read more
This image of M101 is the first taken with two cameras working simultaneously.
One camera, STL-1000M, on Takahashi TOA-150 @ f/7.3 for luminance data and the other, Canon 60Da, on Takahashi FSQ-106N @ f/5.0 for RGB data.
The main camera is the STL. It is controlled by CCDCommander and CCDSoft, with the main chip used for luminance acquisition and the secondary chip for guiding (and dithering). Read more
I am setting up a process to be able to shoot with two cameras simultaneously (with full synchronization between them): One camera on TOA-150 to take luminance and the other on FSQ-106N for color.
While I have solved the software aspects of the synchronized handling of the two cameras (thanks to AstroArt), continued confinements due to the pandemic have prevented me from finishing the hardware aspects. Read more
IC410 is a faint emission nebula in the constellation Auriga. It is located approximately 10000 light-years away from the Earth and spans more than 100 light-years. The nebula surrounds NGC 1893, a young galactic star cluster, which is partially obscured by the dust. Read more
