Acquisition Details

Date Posted: July 20, 2006

Equipment card


This Image was taken on the nights of 9/11, 9/29 and 10/4/05 in my backyard observatory in El Dorado Hills CA. I used CCDAutopilot2 to acquire all the subframes, darks, flats and park the telescope. Low in the heavily light polluted sky, I took 100 min of Luminence (1x1) and 70 min of RGB each (2x2) all 10 min subframes using a ST-2000XM, G-11/Gemini, and a Orion XT-10 modified with a JMI-DX1/Robofocus focuser.
