Testing Tak Epsilon telescope after recollimation 22/7/2015

Images on NGC 7000

Geoff Dryland

 

I've recollimated the Tak Epsilon. Still not sure I've got it right - see my note from 29/7/2015 re collimation of this scope (after this image was taken).

Below are two images. First one is with the Atik 4021 camera, a wide field of view of the North America Nebula. The second is with my new Atik 450 camera. About half the FOV but the pixels are half the size of the 4021 so should have a better resolution. Since I took these images, I have been able to add more data - click here to view the revised image after adding that extra data.
