I have been going after Sharpless 2-224 when I can. This time of year I only can get a few hours each night. I knew this was going to be a tough one going in. It is in category IV in my Interstellarum Deep Sky Atlas, and honestly, I'm very surprised it is visible at all visually. Here is what I have so far after 3.5 hours. I need to update this since I do have another hour of data. I'm using 30m and 60m subs.
A much easier target is Messier 53. Star clusters are good candidates for imaging when the Moon is up since they aren't quite as affected as galaxies and reflection nebulae. This is 3 hours 55m of data in LRGB using 5m subs binned 1x1. Both these objects were imaged using the AT8RC riding on the MyT.
Here are my occasional thoughts on Astrophotography, Astronomy, and whatever else catches my attention.
