Window-sill PD images
NGC2264 NGC2239 M42
The clouds cleared quite late last night, so I lacked the determination to get dressed and go outside, so I resorted to the window-sill instead. (“The best telescope is one you use the most”).
Here, therefore, are 3 images with the 80mm refractor and the PD through the window.
I had never been able to image (or find, from the window-sill!) the Christmas tree cluster before!
The Satellite cluster is embedded in the Rosette nebula, which is, in fact, quite large. I had to work GIMP quite hard to bring out the nebula.
I couldn’t resist having another go at the Orion nebula(s).This one is a composite of 4 different exposures to avoid washing out the bright central section while keeping the outer detail. Not brilliant, but not too bad given it is through the double glazing!
I think I will try a multiple exposure composite on the Rosette when I next get a chance.
